Bought this drill quickly without much research due to it being on sale. It's fantastic. I'm very happy with the purchase. It is lightweight but still very powerful. A complete joy to use. Perfect for construction projects and for repair around the house. The case is well designed and easily fits everything including the double batteries without being huge. I highly recommend this.
I bought this drill on Boxing Day special and it's an incredible value at less than $100. It has a good, well-balanced heft, and the materials used in construction feel high-quality. I love the brake, which immediately stops the drill when the trigger is released. The speed control is easy to control, and it appears to have more than enough torque to drive 3" screws into hardwood. The racheting chuck is quick and easy to use and I haven't yet had any slippage while drilling holes.
The only negatives are the type of extra bit holder and lack of work light. The former is a hole in the back which holds the included double-sided bit, but if you're like me and keep a magnetic bit holder in the chuck, it will barely hold onto a standard small bit. The latter is a feature now appearing on all drills but absent on this drill, but it's not a deal-breaker.
I first used a Bosch drill like this one when I borrowed my brother-in-law's a couple of years ago. Having previously owned nothing but lower priced "mediocre" drills previously, I could feel the difference immediately. When the opportunity arose to buy one through Amazon at a greatly discounted price I ordered it immediately. This is the best drill I have ever owned. It feels well balanced and comfortable in the hand. There's lots of power when needed with variable speed and great control for any job around the farm. All this at an unbelievable price. Get one if you're in the market for a new drill - you won't be disappointed.
Was able to buy this on sale on amazon and also received a manufacturer's coupon for an additional discount. It was an absolute steal of a deal. It's a great drill that can do much more than general household repairs. Charges quickly, holds a charge for many hours, good grip, not too heavy. You won't need another drill if you buy the drill/driver combo. Anything under $200 for this drill/driver is a good deal. It does not come with a built in LED light like earlier models or just drill models. The light was poorly placed in the older models anyway and not very helpful. My only regret is not buying another one to give as a gift.
Product is usual Bosch quality all around. The price was very attractive for a first rate product that usually sells for much more. Warrenty is very good. When I registered on line I told Bosch that while my purchase date was Dec 26 I did not recieve the the unit until January 5th. Bosch immediately advised me that they would advance the warrenty start to that date. Amazon handled the order very efficiently so my experience from all angles was very good.
Does everything I expect of a drill at its suggested retail price. Service (delivery) from Amazon was first rate even though it was sale item. The drill itself is well balanced, ergonomic, powerful enough to drive home 3" deck screws with no problem, charges quickly, charge seems to last forever, quick change chuck very effective. In fact since I bought it I dont think I have used my old cable drill.
I had exactly this model before and re-ordered it as I recently ruined my old one. This newer version of that model seems to have a better gear than the previous one and has a little higher torque. I guess I re-ordered because I really liked it before and now it even better. Sometimes they sell on Amazon for even less if you wait but I needed it quickly.
I have had use of this drill for less than a month. I am very impressed with its build quality. It feels sturdy, runs quietly and no doubt should give years of excellent performance. It fits my large hand very well and has a comfortable rubberized grip. My only regret is that I didn't buy two units at your remarkable sale price of less than $100 delivered.
Cette perceuse sans fil est parfaite... légère, compacte et très puissante. Un coffre de transport solide et léger avec quelques compartiments pour ranger des mèches et autres. Le prix est aussi très alléchant pour une perceuse aussi performante. Si j'avais été encore entrepreneur électricien, j'en aurais acheter au moins deux en même temps.
