Recommendation wanted for Cordless drill

Recommended Posts

So my old cordless drill has picked up a nasty smoking habit of late and is perhaps reaching the end of its useful life. It gets a fair bit of use as a drill and as a screwdriver; and probably going to get more use building the railway.
Does anyone have any experience to recommend a decent cordless drill please?

Hi there,

I have a small Bosch drill/driver that has a lithium ion battery, must be nearly 15 years old now and is still excellent BUT recently, my brother in law helped me redo my bathroom ceiling and he was using a pair of Screwfix drill/drivers, they seemed very impressive to me!

This was it: https://www.screwfix.com/p/mac-allister-msdd18-li-2-18v-1-5ah-li-ion-cordless-drill-driver/873fx

I can't vouch for the longevity of this as I can for the Bosch, I see the modern equivalent of mine is now about £65 - WITHOUT battery! Similar again for a battery but as I always say, you get what you pay for. Plus, I always say, always buy the best tools you can afford.

Hope this helps,

John, just a DIYer, not a professional of any kind.
