Drills and screwdrivers are motorised DIY tools that make light work of everything from assembling flatpack furniture and putting up TV wall brackets to dealing with tougher material like brick and masonry. If you’re struggling to pick one that’s right for you, we’ve got everything you need to make the right choice.
It’s also important to think about how your new drill is powered. You can take a cordless model anywhere – perfect for everyday DIY jobs. Corded drills are ideal for longer tasks like drilling brick or masonry, as they’re a lot more powerful.
At the end of the day, it’s all about what jobs you need to do around the house. If you’re hanging up pictures and building some furniture, a small cordless model could be the model for you. If you’ve got a DIY SOS job on your hands, a more powerful drill will help you get perfect results.
Some of our drills will have different speed settings so they can handle a variety of jobs around the house. Models with multiple speed settings will let you tackle everything from hanging up Christmas photos to setting up shelves and TV brackets.
Ever started your DIY when you realise the screws you have don’t fit the drill or screwdriver you’ve got? To save you from the impending heartbreak, a lot of our models come with a set of easily changeable bits, so you’re perfectly prepared for every job at hand.
There are loads of little features to look out for when buying drills and screwdrivers. Models with a reverse function are handy for loosening bolts and screws, while products that have higher speed and torque levels are more suited for heavy-duty jobs. Some drills are also specially designed to be super comfortable to hold. Perfect for long DIY days.
