Silverline Silverstorm 125763 Combi Drill Review


If you’re looking for a good all rounder of a drill that can drive screws at the speed you want,  you could do a lot worse than the Silverline Silverstorm 125763, which incidentally comes with a whole host of features such as an LED light and a set of drill bits to get you started. This combi drill has an indicator on the battery to alert you when the charge is running out, so it’s clear from the outset that this is a user friendly product.

Impressively this drill has 21 torque settings and thanks to its two-speed gearbox, you can either go fast or slow, depending on the nature of the job. So whether you’re driving screws or drilling into breeze blocks, this drill has you covered.

With the inclusion of 6 drill bits together with 6 screwdriver bits as well as a magnetic holder, everything you need is within easy reach, maximising your on the job efficiency. You can be sure to get the job done without interruption because of the inclusion not of not 1 but 2 x 1.5 Ah Ni-Cd batteries, together with the fast charge from the one hour charger to ensure that your drill is powered up all the time.

Because it’s a drill specifically made to ensure work efficiency for both the professionals and amateur users, it is very easy to use, even for a newbie. Again, your work is not limited to areas with good lighting since an LED work light enables you to work in darker areas.

Carrying it to and from your truck on a construction site is easy because of the hard storage case. The rugged nature of the drill is complemented by the carry case that ensures total safety and longevity of this power tool.

Pros

  • Good value for money
  • User friendly since it’s well built and not heavy.

Cons

  • If overloaded, the battery gives up and waves a red flag. If you don’t go easy on it, it has rather worryingly been known to explode, which has also been known to shatter the magnetic bit holder
  • A few users have complained that the second speed of the drill sometimes causes it to slip out of gear.
  • Be sure to note any burning brushes since that is likely to happen when you push the drill too hard or when it gets stuck when you are drilling for masonry purposes.

Conclusion

This combi drill is great when it comes to desired usability, safety and comfort to accommodate most DIY jobs, be it in the garden, workshop or general repairs about the home. However, if you are looking for a power drill that can do regular heavy work, this may not the tool for you, as a little overloading has undeniably been known to have disastrous results.
