Excellent impact driver especially if you already have the combi drill driver in the 10.8v system. Its really compact, using this driver has been a revelation for me large screws go into wood so easily and fast I hardly use my 18v driver any more.
This is supplied without charger or battery.

Bosch 2AH batteries are cheap at just £24

Very short head length at only 137 mm - better balance and control of the tool, perfect for working in tight areas
Very light at only 0.96kg
High speed at 2600rpm
Great performance-to-size ratio at 105 Nm @ pocket-size
Variable speed trigger - perfect speed regulation

Had one for a few years, fantastic addition to anyones toolbox. This will drive in 6" screws into hardwood unlike drill drivers of the same size.
#2
looks good, but you pay for battery and charger that comes to a total of £85.
#3
stupid question do you need to drill a pilot hole first? or just drive the screw into the wood? I've got a project and will be using 4" screws into stud timber

The idea is you already have those for another 10.8v Bosch item

Depends on the wood/screw size etc. Some wood will split, some won't so probably best to google the material 1st but stud timber should be fine to drive them in., it is variable speed so remember to watch the last part as it will keep going until you stop or snap the head off.

rubbish deal in my opinion, but you may agree with logic from GoNz017.
£85 for full set with battery and charger is too much. is rather go for this

thinking about the fact that it doesn't come with a charger or battery even £37 is too much...

No need to pilot softwood (studs) at all. Hardwood timbers is a different kettle of fish and will definitely need piloting first

If you regularly come up against stuck screws this is worth every penny, I have the drill driver set and find the pair complement each other well along with being commercial grade not DIY crap that breaks easily with the plastic gearbox's.

If you can afford the 18v sets then great but for me it was ideal to toss in the van each morning repairing various wall mounted bits of tech and general household DIY/renovation.

I would love that 18v GSB to add to the collection though.

Rubbish comment in my opinion, you are comparing completely different tools - this is highly compact impact driver for one task only - not a large heavy all-rounder. As for the deal itself it currently the cheapest available on-line inc. postage therefore is a very good deal. As I stated it's mainly for people who've already bought into the Bosch 10.v system that's the whole point of selling 'bare' tools . I own a Makita 18v drill/driver (DHP480) and this Bosch is better and faster at driving large screws.

I hadn't realised how cheap these were now! It is also the same price at Folkestone Fixings:

For those without Amazon Prime - this appears to offer free next day delivery.

I want one - but do I really need one...
#11
It's a good price.

I have this impact driver, but I hardly use it, as it does not seem to do anything that their normal screwdriver can do - which has class-leading torque IIRC. It will eat through bits though.

The day you have some stuck screws or a job with a load of large screws you will be happy you had it :)

Always use impact driver bits, I have a PZ2 and PH2 made by Wera and use a Wera Impaktor Tri-Torsion Bit Holder with them, all still in top condition :)

fair enough you have ​your opinion, but im coming from the guy who would consider this but doesn't have another 10.8v bosch system. so I would need the full package at £85 therefore for me a better deal would be the 18v which is better and isnt actually that big or heavy compared to other 18v combis.

No one would be considering this Bosch unless he/she were after an IMPACT driver. It does NOT drill holes. It drives large screws at high speed, effortlessly through thick timber and considerably faster than the drill driver you keep going on about. It has twice the torque. Anyone in the market for this Bosch would already own a decent 18v/10.8v drill.

Always use impact driver bits,

I've used them all, and they do not last. The fact is, hardened screws and the posi/phillips profile are not design for impact driving. The bits suffer prematurely whatever the impact bits marketing blurb says.

But I know it's a fashion thing to use an impact driver. It's my least used from the otherwise excellent Bosch 10.8 range

​I only paid 85 for the combi drill 2 2ah batteries and the l-boxx think I'll wait until somewhere does a more tempting price

This deal has expired at Amazon (now nearer £50 with delivery as not available with Prime either). However, the link mentioned above at FFX has it as £36 if anybody was still looking for it.
