The October edition of Car Mechanics magazine performed a product test on a range of cordless drills and awarded the ‘Recommended Product’ accolade to the Draper Expert 18V Cordless Combi Hammer Drill with Two Li-ion Batteries, Stock No.03286
“Although a damned good all-rounder, this Draper model’s pricing seems rather out of kilter with the all conquering Stanley. Admittedly you do get an extra couple of features – a screw-in handle plus a double-ended screwdriver bit – but they hardly account for the £70+ price difference between the two models. In other ways, both have an incredibly similar spec: hammer mode, 13mm chuck, hard storage case, auto lock, two gears and two hefty Lithium-ion power packs (1.3Ah in this case). In all-out performance, though, the Best Buy leads the way, but only just.”
PERFORMANCE – 10/14.
IS IT WORTH THE MONEY? – 4/6.
OVERALL SCORE – 14/20.
