Drill buying guide

A power drill is an essential home improvement tool. They can bore holes, loosen or tighten screws and even chisel away materials. Combine this with the ability to use on a variety of materials, and you'll find that the right drill allows you to easily undertake multiple DIY tasks.

Our handy guide will explain everything you need to know about drills and will help you decide on the best one for you.

Man using a drill

Before you begin

What will you be using the drill for?

Do you need a drill for everyday household tasks like putting up shelves or hanging pictures? Or will it be used as part of a bigger renovation, and need to drill larger holes through bricks or masonry? Most drills have multiple functions, so even if you need a tool that could be used for both scenarios, we have one that could suit you – but knowing a bit about your plans will help narrow down the search.

Another consideration is the length of a particular task. The size and weight of a drill can affect how long you can spend working on your project – if the tool is heavy and bulky you’ll quickly tire of holding it. Make sure you pick a drill that is comfortable for you to handle and you’ll be able to keep working for longer.

Will you need to move freely?

Some of our drill options will need to be plugged into the mains, and can therefore limit your movement. If you are going to use your drill all over your house, and even outside, you may wish to consider another option for your convenience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great piece of kit Really well built and takes 2 sizes of bits. Also like the micro adjuster for depth of cut

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comprehensive and well designed I wanted a cheap router that would cover all bases. (I took back the first one as it way too loud for regular home use) I did more research and this was purchased it is relatively quiet, can handle long cutting bits, deep 60mm plunge, the speed control is under the left thumb so can be changed mid cut the depth adjustment stop is very solid, the router can also be lock down most router don't have this feature to top off all this it comes in a storage box

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible Value for money For the occasional router user like me this is a more than adequate tool. I'm delighted with the results I've achieved with little or no experience. Would definitely recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from easy & useful Have used it 2 or 3 times so far and I'm very pleased with it. Very quiet (for a router) and smooth when running.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it but one thing missing Had this router for about a month now and love it and all it’s features! The led work light is a god send. It performs everything I have asked and has plenty power for my tasks. Depth adjustment works great and is nice and smooth/comfortable to use. The only thing missing for me is a speed lock function which mean use with a universal router table isn’t possible, unless you cable tie the trigger or some similar diy solution!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good for the money I got this as an upgrade to a similar model (same make) which I've been very happy with for a couple of years but which only takes 1/4" bits. I've now done a load of work with it using amongst others a 1/2" x 50mm long cutter on oak, chipboard and some other woods and am very pleased. It's comfortable to use, light and hasn't lacked power. The light underneath is great and the dust extraction has been good. In my opinion the collet lock isn't quite as easy to operate as the earlier model but it isn't exactly rocket science either, and the fine height adjustment is taking a bit of getting used to but I think that's a minor thing. On the whole I'd say it's great, especially for the money and if my last one is anything to go by if looked after it should last well too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does what it says on the tin It's a good tool, nothing special like title says does what it says on the tin, cam complete with all the bits to take either half and quarter inch router bits.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Value for money I bought this router to replace one that some undesirable half inched from my garage. The predecessor was the same model. It was used extensively in fitting my new kitchen. Cut 2 joins in my worktops which I did myself after watching a youtube video how to do it. Also use to make some shelves in my Lounge. Had no hesitation in buying another one just the same. Very pleased with this product.
