I have a feeling this is an annoying question :oops:

I'm really struggling to decide on a drill, combi? driver? impact?

I'll mainly be plaster boarding to wood, putting up shelves, doors etc..

Huge thanks in advance

personally go for a combi and an impact.
but a serious note,how much will these be used?and how deep are your pockets?
reason i ask is there are a lot of lower priced gear which no doubt will do the job just aswell,something like......no i cant say it.......ok i will 'ryobi' thatll please him(he knows who he is) :LOL:

:mrgreen: well this is a difficult question to answer.. I'm attacking a full house renovation *gulp* , but so far I've pulled a few walls down and made a mess.. I also don't even know what the different drill types do (even after reading what the different drill types do) so the drill probably won't be used much, this is a personal project and not something I do for a living (or I'd end up on rogue traders!)

Budget wise, I'd like something half decent simply because I'm stupid like that, even if I don't use it, I still want a good one. I was close to spending £200 on one. So maybe £100-£200

soz m8 i know ive added to your confusion,but as i do it for a living i can only really give you an opinion on what i use,trouble is when you start going down the professional route for tools they end up costing big bucks and a lot of my kit is bosch blue.
unless your happy to get something decent but not expensive try ebay.

the good thing about ryobi is there are 30+ tools for the house and garden to fit the same batteries

i would start with a hammer drill and take it from there

all one plus is interchangeable so old nicad blue stuff is compatable with the li-ion green stuff

thats 10% commission to gregers :D

Another vote for Ryobi, and with any potential saving, vs. a more expensive drill, you can spend on an extra battery or another tool in the range.

Thanks very much guys.

I need to get the drill tomorrow, I'd really like a Makita as I've already started buying Makita tools (OCD)

Please, Please recommend a Makita drill and also the screws I will need to attach this plasterboard to wood studs, as I really need to get started tomorrow :cry:

Huge thanks in advance
