Cordless Drills Under £200

Best Cordless Drills Under £200 UK Reviews 2018

In this article we will be having a look at, the best cordless drills that cost less than £200 in the UK market. For this type of spend you can really get the highest quality cordless drills that are available. If you can afford this amount of money, then you will be able to buy the really good brands like Dewalt, Ryobi and Makita.

Below I have looked at what I think are the best ones available in the particular price points of between £100-200

There are plenty of choices from most of the leading brands. I have picked out those that get the highest ratings by actual people who have bought and used the product.

Battery Type

If you decide to spend between £100- £200 then any cordless drill will only use Lithium-Ion batteries. As you may know they hold their charge longer, are faster to charge, are lighter and suffer none of the problems associated with the older style of battery. 

​Top Rated Cordless Drills Under £200

Below I have listed the best drills based on actual real life buyer ratings. These ratings have been left by users who have bought the product, used it and then taken the time to write a review. I have summarised these reviews to save you the trouble.

No 1 Choice - DeWalt 18V XR Lithium-Ion 2-Speed Combi Drill

This one comes out at the number one choice in this price range. It is from the excellent Dewalt brand and this one has an RRP of around £500. However at the moment at Amazon, this price point is now under £120. You will not see that very often. Please not that prices changed regularly so always check the exact price before purchasing. 

  • 18 Volt XR Lithium-Ion cordless combination drill
  • It is very compact and lightweight
  • All the transmission parts (moving parts) are metal for longer life.
  • It is rated on average by all buyers as a 4.9 out of 5 star product
  • 14 position torque for complete control when drilling into different materials
  • Measures 25 x 20.5 x 7.5 cm and weighs 1.5 Kg
  • Comes with one battery, one charger and a kit box
  • Has two speeds and the trigger also allows even more control
  • 13 mm keyless chuck
  • LED work space lighting
  • 1 year warranty which can be extended up to 3 years when you register online

No 2 Choice - Ryobi ONE+ Cordless Combi Drill

This one comes out at the number two choice in this price range. It is from the popular Ryobi brand and is a 18 volt cordless drill. With this option you get three different choices. You can buy this as a drill only with no battery.

That is useful if you already own a compatible Ryobi battery and the drill on its own will cost about £70-75. When purchased with 2 Li-Ion batteries the cost goes up to around £110, so a good value deal. They then offer a third option which is the drill, two batteries and a 22 piece drill set bundle. The cost for that bigger package is around £135.

  • 18 Volt Lithium-Ion cordless drill
  • Can be used as a drill or as a cordless screwdriver
  • Has a 13 mm keyless chuck
  • It is rated by all buyers as a 4.8 out of 5 star product
  • The bits and drill bits can be changed with just one hand which is really useful
  • Full control with 2 gears, variable speed, reverse and brake control
  • Measures 26.4 x 18 x 29.2 cm and weighs 3.8 Kg
  • Has a hammer function for masonry drilling
  • Comes with a charger and a carry bag
  • Really easy to use

No 3 Choice - DeWalt DCK211D2T

This one comes out at the number three choice in this price range. It is another one from Dewalt and also one that gets rave reviews. As I will continue to mention, when you own a Dewalt drill, you really do own one of the very best that money can buy.

This one is however "BUMPER" value for money in my opinion. Why you may well ask? You get a cordless drill and also get a cordless impact driver for around £140. That truly is great value. Owning both will save yo a fortune in time as you don't need to keep constantly changing bits.

  • Powerful 10.8 Volt Lithium-Ion cordless drill and impact driver
  • This comes with 2 batteries, a charger and a kit box
  • The drill is a DCD710 model with 15 torques, all metal gears, a 10 mm chuck, an LED light, 2 speed settings, and variable speed
  • The impact driver is the popular DCF815 that can yank out 107 Nm of full torque. Like the drill driver is is all metal gears. It also has LED lighting
  • It is rated by all buyers as a 4.7 out of 5 star product
  • Very powerful so don't be put off by the smaller 10.8 volt battery
  • Automatic spindle lock for quick one handed changing

This Bin my opinion is one of the best value bundle deals that is available right now.

No 4 Choice - Makita 8391DWPETK

This one comes out at the number four choice in this price range. This is the most expensive one on our list and will set you back pretty close to £190. Makita tools are expensive, but they are high quality. With this drill though you get a really high quality set of accessories. In total there are 101 pieces so just about everything you will ever need to own for drilling and driving.
