"Turns quite slowly, but with decent torque, and the chuck locks very positively when stopped. Having two batteries is very useful. The chuck on both the store example, and the supplied drill was not aligned straight, which is a serious problem for the precision work which I have been doing (aircraft parts), and has limited its use on thicker parts, since it will oval the holes, even with short jobber bits. The batteries do not last long when using the drill heavily, but they do charge very quickly, and can be swapped as quickly as they discharge with moderately heavy utilisation. After 2 years of use, my example looks battered, but still works. The low speed makes it great for using with a circle cutter (fly cutter), which would otherwise be rather dangerous with a hand drill. The badly manufactured chuck actually helps with this usage, since it tends to make the circle cutter oscillate, helping to cut through the material. This is not really a quality tool, but it is robust, and it seems unlikely to actually fail. The bright light is very useful in those dark and tight spots, and it is compact and light. I have also used it with 90 degree attachments. The chuck will accept up to 3/8" bits, but it is really most suited to drilling small holes, in thin material. Thicker material, particularly aluminium alloys need higher speeds."
"The photo above of the item is not what you now receive. It has been upgraded and, in my view, the Mk II is an improvement on the MK I. The 5 year warranty is impressive until you find out that this doesn't cover the batteries. And can you buy batteries separately? Of course not. So the drill is useless. No problem, buy another one and you will get new batteries. Yes, and no - the Mk II has different batteries to the Mk I......"
"We are a wheeled bin manufacture and we put an awful lot of locks on bins as well as other things. So drills are constantly in use. Over the years we have use a lot of different drills from different manufactures. but we have found this one to be the best, in terms of power, weight and cost.so much so we have just bought another one online today, because they are no longer available in store.So please tell us Wickes why have you stopped producing this product? Have you got a new one coming out? Cos we love this one."
"The batteries supplied with this drill have a limited lifetime (50 recharging cycles?) and are not replacable once they deteriorate. Wickes will not sell replacements. This lack of battery support spoils what is otherwise a decent product."
