T18+3 3.1 Li different set confusion
« on: August 06, 2019, 06:12 AM »
I just purchased T18+3 575596 for much cheaper than set 574908. Can someone provide some information about what is different between these two drills? The one I purchased says special edition.

Apparently the same kit.

Might be smaller batteries.  I think mine came with 5.0 batteries.

The set pictured in the second post appears to be lacking the right angle adapter and offset chuck.  The card in the lid shows where the offset chuck should be located.

That's looks like the t18 'compact' set pictured. Comes with the smaller batteries and none of the 'special' chucks. (I don't think mine even had the centrotec chuck, just the keyless one?)

I bought one too, a while back, for about £240 GBP, an absolute bargain. Especially given how I only really like the drills with the smaller batteries anyway. .
there's nothing like the right tool for the job
