cordless drill

Hi All My powerdevil 12volt cordless drill has now died. What cheap, 40 or less drill do you recomend. I have a mains hammer drill so do not need hammer action in the new cordless.
Thanks for any advice Mike

Mike,
When my decent cordless died a couple of year ago, as an interim measure I bought Wickes's own brand to get by. OK it's not fantastic but it's still going and has done a heck of a lot of work.

You can't go wrong with Wickes stuff. The DIY range (black) is cheap enough and resonably well made, with a 2 yr guarantee. The Pro grey drills are made by top makers and rebadged. Kress do the SDS drils. Try the 15.6v drill drive/angle drill (made by Kress). Normally 130 down to 95 for a while but will go up again. Well worth and class drill. A battery angle drill will cost you 100 minimum alone. This is two in one.
For 25 Aldi have a drill/driver with a Johnson motor. Well made and 3 year guarantee. Best go now as it is a special.

So what if they're only 8.33 each? If someone wants a budget drill driver it will probably do the job for light drilling work. The OP is after something budget after all and doesn't want to drill masonry

What i would like to know is...
Why Aldi don't sell their power tools in the US and Aussie land? or is it just that this country don't give a stuff about importing cheap garbage.

Hm. They don't always have tools here. Perhaps the way to find out is to ask on a Yank n/g, or keep an eye on that site.

(According to a feature in The Times T2 section a few weeks ago about global expansion and booming UK patronage of Aldi, Lidl, and Netto), there are actually two (feuding) Aldi efforts, Aldi Nord and Aldi Sud, who by mutual arrangement sell similar but different merchandise in separate areas / countries.

I think the drill is German.

I very much doubt it, it's probably made in China. However, many Bosch, Makita, etc. tools are also Chinese in origin.

The current Aldi drill has a Johnson motor, which is top quality. This is a decent drill, no doubt.

I was looking for a cordless drill driver type thing for around the same price point. I actually spent a little more at B and Q but bought a 4 tool power pack with other tools I was also hanckering after. The tools are made by MAc Allister (for B and Q). I got 18v cordless tools - a drill (which does have hammer action even though though do not require it), a multi saw, a corless nailer and a torch. There were two batteries and a 1 hour charger and carry case. The whole lot cost a reasonable 65 (reduced from 99).
The tools seem like good quality and have a three year garuntee. Not sure exactly where they are made but all the stamps on the indicate that they are British.

Go on then, amuse us by telling us all where this Johnson motor is made.

Could be one of many places, Johnson is a global company. It's possible that these motors are made in China, where a load of Bosch and Makita stuff is also made.

This man, Lord Hall, is clearly a racialist. He sneers products made by certain races. Appalling.

No, just enquiring if you can do more than just repeat the advertising jargon.
