I had the bosch equivilent twin pack. Like you I bought an impact after using a Hilti 14.4v at work.

The drill is a waste of time, its only use is for pilots.

The impact had just about enough guts (100nm) to drive screws without pilots, but only at full speed, which made the 1.3ah li-ion batteries run low fast.

I got my money back from screwfix and bought a panasonic 14.4v li-ion combi sds with two 3.0ah batteries for 200 and the matching bare impact (150nm) for 80 much better!

I also wouldn't ever go back to non li-ion batteries. 3.0ah weigh less than ni-? 1.3ah and can be charged at any point.

i was almost hoping for that answer thanks for that just seen a dewalt 18v combi that comes with matching impact driver doesnt have the new batteries but ive just been looking and the new dewalt batts fit the old drills so when the ones that come with it die then ill just get the new ones, only thing it doesnt have is a work light but i was trying to decide how helpfull that was and i must have used it twice yesterday and even then i think i just did as it was there. question is will i miss it?

The light is very useful, especially when you haven't got a head torch handy, you would be suprised how much it does help at times.

I was in the same prediciment

If the dewalt drill doesn't hammer i would forget that in my opinion.

I went for the panny duo because the drill is sds so 10mm masonary is effortless (up to 16mm). Its a combi and comes with 1/4 hex attachment, i can use spades and quick change drill bits. It only weighs 2kg and it comes with two li-ion 3.0ah batteries at 210 quid. The bargain was the impact, brushless motor, very powerful at 150nm and work light at only 70 quid!

Sorry to jump on this thread after almost a month but i have only just joined.

I purchased that Makite 'white' trinpack recently for use in my current part time role of Kitchen fitting. Its been a great little kit and agreed the drill/driver doesnt have huge guts but its weight and size make it very handy.

The Impact driver is only slightly behind in power to the Bosch equivalent but you wouldent really tell tbh. yes you need it at full power to get the most from it, but i usually manage to go a whole day on a job without recharging either battery whilst fitting units etc. I have a dewalt Combi for wall drilling and an SDS for more heavy duty work though...

Oh and i think the white looks quite snazzy! :)

just my tuppence! ;)
