Hi all

It is my 40th coming up next month and my parents are insisting they get me a little something

I have told them I don't need anything but they want to

So my old Hitachi 18v impact is pretty much dead and I would like to try another brand

Any recommendations in the sort of £100 range

You can get a dewalt one for that price.
I’m very happy with all their products..
Apart from their bloody radios that people keep bringing on to jobs

If't your 40th tell them not to be so tight you can get a nice watch for £6k and just remind them that you will be the one choosing their care home...........

I only bought the hitachi Impact years ago as it was on special for about 90quid in Screwfix or toolstation can’t remember which

What other tools do you have - any that can interchange batteries? That’s always the way to go.
If you have hitachi batteries that are compatible with the newer hitachi then go that way.

I just checked and unfortunately my model is really old and the batteries won’t fit any newer models

I'd say £100 is not realistic if you need a tool with batteries. Not for anything worth using regularly anyway.

If they want to get you a little something say you'd like £100 worth of drinks and dances down the local flesh emporium. You'd like them to be there with you on your special day of course :D

Whatever you get for your birthday - you need to be thinking on adding other tools to the batteries you will be hopefully getting with your purchase.
Plenty of threads on here with different opinions on tools.
Probably big 4 or 5 names - keep an eye out for deals all over as you could start with a drill driver/ impact kit with a couple of big a/hr batteries and start adding kit as you get older!
Get searching! If you liked Makita do you have any batteries left over?

You could ask for the bare impact driver then get compatible batteries online for quite good prices. you can also get a makita to dewalt battery converter which saves some pennies.

I still honestly don't see the need for one of these, when others near me are using them incessantly the noise makes me want to wring their necks. :)
