Got one of these in a twin pack and been very happy with it plenty of power lightweight but feels really durable. Goes straight throw breeze block wall no problem haven’t tried it on anything else as of yet.

Got one of these in a twin pack. Really impressed so far, good power, speed range, feels good in the hand (not too light or heavy). Only annoyance is you have to take the battery off to stow it in it's box.

This Dewalt still has to be my go to drill for nearly every job. I’ve had mine for about 5 years now and still going strong. Would 100% recommend and not go with the cheaper option off Dewalt

Always use Dewalt, excellent battery life, powerful enough not for me to go grab the sds for an odd “hard” bit of wall. Grips well, plenty of torque.

I've used dewalt products for years and not had 1 fail on me, the only time I've bought a new dewalt product is when I've upgraded to a newer version

This is my work horse! It gets regular heavy use and never misses a beat, if it broke tomorrow I’d replace it with the same. It’s nice and compact and still really powerful.

This is my go-to combi drill. I've had loads over the years. Solid enough to last a while but cheap enough to replace when they finally die from abuse. I have plenty of batteries so l have never struggle for battery life. the chuck is large enough so you can fit bigger drill bits in too.

Chuck tends to loosen off as the drill gets older but all in all brilliant tool I've got two of them and will definitely be buying another when the time comes

We purchased 16 of these 17 months and not one has gone faulty - all our engineers speak very highly of them. Would definitely purchase in the future

Had an Estwing hammer when I started my apprenticeship back in 94, still going strong today! Good quality products. You pay that little bit more than other brands but if you look after your tool ... it will look after you !! Ha. Can’t fault this brand of hammer. Go on treat yourself!

Just converted to these from another brand. I am very impressed with them, they clean nearly everything that is hard to remove with other products. They have a variety of different wipes and each priced reasonably. The only disappointment is that they are not wet enough and they seem to dry out very quickly once out of the container.

I have the 1721 model, same as this but with extra functions. Well priced MFTs straight forward to use. The 1721 can test type AC, A & B RCDs which is great. The leads can be temperamental and could be better (the older 1500 series leads were much better. I have changed my leads at least 3 times in 4 years. (I do a LOT of commercial testing so this does have an impact) All in all very good set of MFTs at a good price.

Great testers for everyday safe isolation and fault finding. No electrician should be without these. Easy to use and navigate the settings, and has auto off function (which is great as the apprentice keeps leaving them switched on!!!!) They bounce well, and brush it off ready for the next test. Much better than the cheap alternatives.
