screwfix.com/p/b…60g

Is it worth gaining the 1 amp hour on the battery and gaining 50 quid to buy the Bosch GSB 1800 18V 3Ah Li-Ion Cordless Combi Drill (8160G) for 99 quid from screw fix mmmmmm

Milwaukee gear is loads better than Bosch (doesn't help that Bosch blue produce some low end trade tools now). As this is a trade product I can't see the point in such a small 2 Ah battery, and I would also always go brushless now.

In my experience the best drills are made by Porter cable.

We had load of battery drills on trial in our factory and everyone agreed the winner was this drill. They are superb and knock spots off Makita / Bosch / De Walt etc that we have used on the past

Screwfix are selling a second battery for 49.99 so 6ah of battery vs 2 for same money.

No brainer.

Bosch blue is quality kit - i have the 18v die grinder and its the mutts nuts.

Totally agree on the 6ah bang for your buck but I have a feeling the batteries will out last the drill itself.

If I buy the Milwaukee i can abuse it for 2 years and buy another battery and get anther 2 years.

Comment above made me think if its not brushless should i just stick with the bosch throw the lot out whe its knackered and buy again in 2 years (that how long my drills usally last dewault and makita previously.

I've had plenty of Bosch blue professional tools that have been heavily used and they've stood up very well, my old 24v SDS drill is still going well after 9 years of site work and believe me it's had a very hard life

Not a bad deal on a good brand of drill. Just bought the £99 quid one from screwfix (link in a post above). Fantastic drill for the money and a good battery. Been putting it through it's paces sorting out joists and fitting new flooring. Very, very happy with it!

Only thing to watch is that Bosch do a less stellar one that looks almost identical and has an almost identical name. The £99 Screwfix deal one is high quality though.
