Regular readers of my blog will already know I am slowly refurbishing my childhood home. So when I was asked to do a VonHaus 20V cordless drill review, I was happy to agree. This particular Vonhaus Drill has an RRP of £99, this kit contains everything you mean to tackle many home DIY jobs. So read on to find out how I got on.
VonHaus 20V Cordless Drill Review
This set comes with a drill, battery, battery charger and a carry bag. You’ll also find 6 drill bits, 6 screwdriver heads, an adaptor for them and a belt clip tucked inside.
I’m not going to pretend to be clued up enough on drill specs to tell you all about it, so here’s what VonHaus have to say about it…
MULTIFUNCTIONAL – Choose from drill function and hammer function. The tool also includes a 13 piece accessory set, which all comes in a neatly packed tool bag.
CORDLESS PORTABILITY – Portable with no restrictive power cords – suitable for use indoors and out. 20V Max 2Ah battery included is compatible with other tools in the VonHaus 20V Max Lithium-ion D Series.
PREMIUM HIGH SPEC MOTOR – Boasts a max torque of 38 NM and a variable speed trigger which allows for an easy transition between 0-440 RPM (Low) to 0-1650 RPM (High).
ADDITIONAL FEATURES – Includes an LED work light for enhanced visibility in low light. Also comes with a forward/reverse button which is conveniently placed near to the trigger for one-handed operation
STRONG & LIGHTWEIGHT – Comes with an all metal alloy 13mm chuck which gives extra strength and durability compared to plastic counterparts. The Drill also comes with a free 2 year extended warranty.
First Impressions Of The VonHaus 20V cordless drill
I was able to get the drill out of the packaging, charge it and swap and change the drill bits easily. I was impressed that the chuck is metal, instead of plastic. (I’ve owned a drill with a plastic chuck before, and this metal one feels much sturdier). (The chuck is the part where the drill bit goes in – you turn it to hold the drill bit in place).
The included carry case is super handy, and allows you to keep all of your drill bits in one place. So you won’t have to spend ages raiding your tool box every time you need to hang a picture.
The LED makes it easier to assemble flat packed furniture in low light settings. (I built a kitchen cupboard last week, and this helped massively)…
As well as the light, the forward and reverse button being located so close to the trigger made flat – pack super easy. The variable speed trigger also meant I could take my time when at work.
I’m fairly new to the world of DIY, but have managed to do plenty of jobs all by myself, thanks to this VonHaus 20V cordless drill. As well as assembling the previously mentioned kitchen wall unit, I fitted an external light…
(My partner is an electrician, so he handled all of the wiring, I just fitted the light to the wall). This cordless drill meant it was super quick and easy to do. One of the included drill bits even managed to get the job done.
I loved that the VonHaus 20V cordless drill has a charge indicator. It’s so handy, being able to see how much “juice” your battery has left in it.
Additionally, the fact the chuck key doesn’t need a key is a handy bonus too. The included clip also means you can clip your drill to your tool belt in between uses.
The final thing worth mentioning is the free 2 year extended warranty. This means you can buy with the peace of mind that your new VonHaus 20V cordless drill will be helping with many jobs to come.
All things considered, I think the VonHaus 20V cordless drill is a great piece of kit for in – home DIY. If you were using it as a tradesperson, you’d probably need to purchase a couple of spare batteries though. The included one gives around 30-60 minutes of use (depending on what you’re doing) per 50 minute charge. I was impressed that the battery was fully charged, straight from the box.
The hammer function worked well enough. I was able to drill into brickwork when I put my weight behind the drill. (I think a brick specific drill bit would have made this job easier).
All told, I am very happy with this item. The battery can also be swapped between any of the other D series VonHaus tools, so that’s great too! Finally, if this VonHaus 20V cordless drill review has been useful, check out my VonHaus Ladder Review.
