cheapest i could find is this:

http://www.lazada.com.my/solo-2p-18v40ahal...20769.html?ff=1

2 x 4.0ah batt pack + charger

with rm 50 discount, it would be RM625

let's say charger cost you RM 100, that means RM525 /2 = RM261 each the batt

still rm 50 more than what newspaper found

haihs... i must learn more from sifu
*
i got my last batch of 2 x 4.Ah + charger for RM548 shipped. ( RM667 less RM100 discount voucher less RM 27 store credit )

let say from your calculation, less charger RM100, that means 448/2 = RM224 each batt.

( actual charger cost RM150 biggrin.gif )

if you really want to get those batt at discounted price, i will let you know once it's on sales with discount voucher biggrin.gif now no high value voucher sad.gif

TBH this year I don't see any high value general use voucher from lazada anymore.
That Rm50/60 shopee bosch voucher is the one that consider as high value but with those markup now...

Actually is higher markup or the cost of new stock become higher?

the shopee voucher can only be used to buy from that one particular seller

some of his stuff are expensive

some are downright cheap - like the l-boxxes, he is selling well below MSRP / other people

some random sellers also sell tools wayy below other people's low prices, example this:

https://shopee.com.my/BOSCH-GWS-18-V-LI-Cor...30775.255142553

RM470 only, no need voucher or anything

the nearest competitor sells for rm 530+, and trust me, i've been monitoring the grinder prices for almost 4 months liao.

next in list would be another drill driver (i have 4 liao), but this time will be an impact driver tongue.gif

i recently got mine for RM447 ( after discount voucher and shopback rebate ).

generally bosch tool pricing is still maintaining and some had been reduce from last year price. meanwhile, makita tool price has been increased compare to last year pricing vmad.gif

for me, those quality tool are really different from those general hardware store one. the moment you pick it up, you can feel it already. and not to mentioned mostly come with lifetime warranty too thus making my investment of quality tool worth much more. for me it's a long term investment and hardly fail went on duty...and can pass this on to my son later.. biggrin.gif

for a general worker, your tools are kinda squeaky clean laugh.gif

mine, especially the drill hammers are full of concrete dust and silicone grease at the sds port

and bruise marks on drill drivers, as i sometimes tend to use the drills as hammers. LOL

guys,

I need to buy a drill to make a 75mm dia hole through a double brick wall..

I only have a Bosch 550 GRE.. What else do I need to buy ? and where?
Hardware masonery bits only make small holes..

I am looking to buy online or can anyone sell a spare 75mm dia hole maker to me?

No need to jump ship lar, both company has some their advantages in diff area.
Now with Dewalt coming in, its going to get even more interesting.
Dewalt can give Makita a good fight on woodworking tool category.

The L box can put many things inside? can show some sample how you arrange the tools inside the box?
