Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing value and very robust This is incredible value for the money, Gotta be the cheapest impact drill on the market! Its well balanced as well, so its ideal if you want drive screws in if you put it on its lowest speed setting. You wont get fatigued, holding it for long periods of time. What a cracking piece of kit. Now if only the 18V Lithium Ion Cordless Drill had a fast 1 hr charge and came with 2 batteries: I would be tempted (can't honestly say I have heard 18v cordless drill with a 3-5 hr charge). But the corded drill is fantastic, well done Maplin overseas buyer, for bringing it in...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not bad value for the money. Bought for occasional use in drill stand as old drill packed up. Collar less than the 43mm stated. Had to shim it - cut strip from cat food tin - to fit drill stand. Solid and heavy. Not a precision build but good value for the money. Happy with my purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Value drill Great value for the money. More or less a throw away drill. Handy to have in the toolbox as a spare. OK, it's a manual chuck but at that price what do you expect. No regrets buying this drill. For the price you can't go wrong.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Real Value I have been running out of battery power for my drills. While searching the internet I came across this drill which was much cheaper than a new battery. How pleased I was. I use it at home and it not only does a lot of the work of drilling but can be adjusted for screw driving. There is a lot of plastic bits on the controls so it must be treated with care but otherwise it is the perfect DIY drill

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The most important feature of the drill is the 580W power. The most important feature of the drill is the 580W power. Most DIY drills only manage 360W and there is difficulty in going through concrete. The 580W and a good set of masonry bits solve that problem. I am very happy and the price of £15 was unbelievable.

Is there a manual that comes with it? because the one I got doesn't, and I can't figure out which button/switch on it does what. or is there an online version?

Asked by: Tom c
There are numerous videos available on the internet that will instruct you on how to correctly operate a drill. The controls are relatively simple. Trigger ... makes it go. there is usually a lever above this that determines the rotation of the drill, (clockwise / anticlockwise)

I have a drill stand which takes drills with a collar size of 43mm. Will this drill fit - perhaps by removing the handle?

The drill is described as an IMPACT drill does it have a hammer action and if so can it be turned off. I see a reply from "Billy" says it has no hammer action so I could not understand why it is described as an IMPACT drill. Thank you.

Asked by: Xavier
Sorry you appear to be confusing Hammer & Impact action Impact drills work in a slightly different way to Hammer drills. They add force to the drill bit but in a different direction than that of a hammer drill. Basically an impact drill has a mechanism called an anvil that provides increased torque or force applied perpendicular to the bit. Instead of just pushing the bit harder into the material as a hammer action would, it spins the bit with more power. This is done automatically when when the thread encounters strong resistance, typically it gives the ability to drive very long screws into material with less effort and less fear of stripping the heads.
