    Thats been going on for a while. B&Q were doing that Dewalt 12v Drill with an SDS drill for the same price. Much better than that hammer drill. Offer was still on last time I went.

    Yeah, DeWalt seem to be more interested in cost rather than quality these days.

    Shame. They used to be good tools. :mad:

    That's because they're Black & Yellow Black & Decker.

    Ive got the mains hammer drill on its own and i think the quality is really good for the price i paid £60 just for the one drill.
    Used it with a large auger bit coped really well and drilling into some stone slabs worked ok but not like my SDS.
    My 18v Dewalt combi drill is a different story what a pile of c**p !

    Haven't they been part of B&D since the sixties? I remember when I was a lad, they used to cost a fortune!

    They used to be properly made, too, unlike today.
