There are dozens of high-quality cordless drills for sale in the UK, but how do you know which one is best for your needs? Shopping around for something that’s not expensive is a good start. But in order to make the best possible choice, you need to know what you’re using the drill for. And you must be sure that your preference includes all the features and accessories you need.
Featuring a compact design and various safety features, the cordless drills for sale today are the most versatile and functional ever. And while many are cheap, you’ll find quality and longevity if you buy a cordless drill from a leading brand such as Makita, DeWalt and Bosch.
What Features Should I Look for When Buying Cordless Drill Sets
If you’ve bought a cordless drill set before, the chances are you’ll already have accessories. You might be able to find a cheap electric drill by looking for model-only options. But if you need everything, it’s worth doing some research. And remember: the cheapest cordless drills aren’t always the best.
The must-have features to look out for include:
- An electric braking mechanism
- Multiple speed with simple controls
- Forward and reverse gears
- LED lights for working in dark areas
- A safe, ergonomically designed handle
- A keyless chuck
- Lightweight design with shock-proof casing
It’s always worth comparing features before buying, as there are some cheap cordless drills that have a range of high-spec features.
What’s Included in Cordless Drill Sets?
A drill with cordless power is sold separately or as part of a set. There are several additional items that could be included in these sets, so it’s worth spending some time on research before parting with your money. But for a good price, you should receive the following:
- A detachable battery (usually 5.0Ah)
- A chuck key
- Drill bits
- A charger
- Carry-case with inlay for protection and safe transport
The best cordless drills in the UK include most of these items, but double-check before you buy.
