Hi

Mine is Dewalt personally, but I think they may be getting a little expensive of late. Maybe they are getting a little big headed.

Many Thanks

Leo

My Dewalt is poo. Just sold my XRP 18V combi and I also got a brand new 110 SDS from my company which I put to the back of my van. Can't beat my 110V Bosch Multidrill and 24V Bosch SDS

I have used Dewalt for years, both mains and cordless,many years ago I was a service engineer then a manager for an industrial power tool company,B&D's industrial tool brand (Elu here) Dewalt in the states were the best sellers and the most reliable.

Dewalt pricy here but I buy mine from the states at a fraction of the price including the shipping.
Recently bought a dewalt 18v Jigsaw cost about £88-00 all in compare that to the UK price.

The only time I have had a problem with a dewalt was last year when my sons bought me a dewalt random orbit sander from the uk.
Worked twice and packed up, dewalts local repairer did it in one day ,been fine ever since.

Ihave used makita tools for the last 15 years and my first drill that i bought still works my father has it and swears by it, i did have a relapse after having my van broken into and bought a 12v dewalt which wasnt powerfull enough to drill a 20mm hole in metal trunking but that was stolen from me on a site ,if he wanted it i would have given him it, but it gave me the excuse to go back to makita



by the way hello every one:)
 
Panasonic for battery drills. High capacity batteries and masses of torque.

Dewalt is Bosch in fancy clothing. Hitachi look good but are crap. AEG have lifetime warranty on tools and batteries on some ranges, might be worth a look.

Makita for 230v tools.

Cheers

Used to swear buy bosch, but have found my newer 24v sds is poor in comparison to my old one that is still going( one with battery level indicator), battery doesn't last long, killed 2 batteries. Hvae recently bought makita 6 piece set with grinder, skill and alligator saws impact and combi drills. I think i'm in love !!!!

I agree. My old Bosch SDS GBH VRE 24V with battery level indicator is the dogs undercarriage.

When I first set up on my own, I went to buy a Dewalt 110v SDS and the bloke in the shop said ' Get a bosch mate, dewalts get returned, bosch's dont'. He also went on to point out that a Bosch was twenty quid cheaper. Ok I thought, actualy thinking he was on some sort of bonus, I will have one.
Nine years later, I still have it, its still going strong and has had some proper hammer (no pun intended). The only thing that has happened is every now and then the flex breaks insid the handle causing a bit of the old ' Norman Collier' cutting out.
As a result of this, the flex gets shorter and shorter, but I dont think thats bad all in all.
