Overall Auto Express Rating

3.0 out of 5

Best price: £101.99 Batteries: 2x18V Contact: 01992 565300, www.clarkeinternational.com

You get a lot for your money with this keenly priced kit from Clarke's contractor range. Alongside the usual batteries and charger, the tough plastic holder contains driver bits with a holder and a handful of drills.

Uniquely here, the charge indicator is an LCD display. The drill is nose heavy but not too bad to use, although the 1,250rpm top speed isn't really enough for wire brushing. Durability was so-so and we missed the smooth running of a brushless motor.
