Hi I am a keen DIYer looking for a cordless hammer drill. I have seen the following for under £60.
Spec:
Chuck capacity: 13mm
Torque settings: 21
Drill driver/Hammer drill
Softgrip
Variable speed
Battery charge level indicator
LED work light
Built-in spirit level
Carrying case
Auxiliary handle
2x 18v 1.5Ah NiCad batteries

Can anyone recommend? Has anyone got one? Your feedback would be appreciated. It looks a good buy but I would like other opinions before shelling out!
Cheers

JCB = Sh*te

Sorry but they are. :cry:

They aren't made by the peeps who make the diggers :LOL: they have sold the name to some cheapo manufacturer :cry:

BnQ have a makita twin drill set for £100
they also have a dewalt corded drill and cordless driver for the same money.

Worth a look

Consider the Ryobi range also.
 
Agree with the above, biggest pile of crap ever to leave china.
Stick to the branded stuff, Bosch, makita etc. It'll pay for itself in the long run!
 
i would definatly recomend ryobi for your needs they are a well respected company that have been about for years

if you buy the one plus system you have over 20 tools for home and garden that fit the batteries

for another £40 you get a second tool and a handy tool bag with a 2 year waranty

there are several options about for around £100 all have the hammer drill plus one off the following jigsaw/circ saw/drill driver /recip saw/impact driver

JCB drills are not that bad I found three almost new ones in a skip at the back of a DIY store. I took them home and they were very easy to repair unlike most of the junk from china. :D
 
Unless the JCB has big wheels or tracks, a bucket of some sort, and a short-tempered irishman driving it, then you should avoid it as it will fall apart in your hands
