    I'm well happy with my Milwaukee kit that I have built up. I have a good 18V kit but am now drifting into the 12V range for everyday use as the weight savings are worth it.

    The 18V Fuel combi drill, and SDS are well powerful, and I have heard the same of the impact. The multitool also does the job as well as my old 240V one.

    The 12V Fuel SDS and combi are my new everyday kit and the performance is there for smaller work.

    For additional battery tools I also carry a circular saw, torch, and small drill driver, although my 12V combi could now take that role too.

    :handpointup: That is a good amount of tools for that money to be fair.

    Dewalt or Makita for value for money.

    By bare units and batteries as I find this is cheaper to accumulate a set and not have what you don’t need.

    If you can find a good deal on Milwaukee I would buy them. They are on the pricey side of your budget.

    I’m a Bosch Professional fan, I’ve had an 18v impact and Combi that is still going strong after 6 years. I’ve now got circular saw, multi tool, jigsaw, Sds and a few lights. I’d go for 18v as it’s powerful enough to get the job done without being cumbersome, whatever you opt for if you treat it well it will last years.

    I would recommend Makita.
    The grinders don’t kick on start up, the hoovers are more compact and the chucks are better.
