I was in the same situation, I could not afford much beyond £65 so I ordered the same model from the Bosch refurbished web site for £64.79 which is for GSB 18-2-LI Plus Professional (shop.bosch-professional.com/gb/…175). It states it comes with the following:

1 x battery GBA 18V 4.0Ah
1 600 Z00 038
Carrying case
Charger AL 1820 CV
2 607 225 426


Remember my version only contains one battery (greater capacity than one on this deal) and manufacturer warranty is reduced to 12 month but is about £30 cheaper than this deal so I'll let you consider the merits and decide.

Good price
Good first deal OP, heat added.
I have this from a previous deal - excellent bit of kit, infected a couple of the guys with tool envy (again)
Would never buy a Bosch drill again, absolute junk compared to my old Makita which took a lifetime beating.

The chuck constantly loosens even with small jobs this was a problem from the start. I have the exact same drill and it's crap

Bought 2 of those and both chucks wobbled and didn't spin true
For not much more if you look about you could get 4/5 ah batteries

Yes mine was wobbly too.

I thought my Makita was bad at the time that's why I jumped ship and got a Bosch, after owning it for 2 years and doing a handful of projects I realise just how good the Makita really was.

I used to throw that thing around on the floor and every so often the chuck came loose, this Bosch I try and put 1 screw in some softwood and the pozi bit falls out

It drives me crazy, they had a nice deal in Selco for a Makita with an impact driver and multi tool for 119.99 I should go and pick up
I too have been looking at drills for up and coming easter weekend projects and came across this screwfix.com/p/d…10p dewalt with 2 batteries and charger with very good reviews £89.99. Is here much difference between these two drills?
amazon customer service? yeah i bought a drill set and somebody swapped it for a cheaper version by the time it got to me. great system they run

Is here much difference between these two drills?


That dewalt Drill looks very good, the only real difference is the torque, I have found the Bosch blue has one of the best rated torque outputs on the market, but in reality you may never notice unless you are drilling into brick all day long or driving 5” screws into hardwood.

I’ve got both, the Bosch which is great and also an older style dewalt which is good - the dewalt not being as good as the Bosch but then I knew it wouldn’t be because the dewalt is much older spec.

Other then the torque and little difference in battery life theirs very little difference between the 2 to be fair, either would be an investment if your pocket can stretch to one or the other.

Ps Amazon quote the Bosch has having 21Nm of torque - that’s the minimum for soft material - the max torque is 63Nm

If you already have Bosch Pro batteries and charger, couldn't you just sell the batteries and charger for around £80, making the drill/driver + LBOXX under £15?

First of all. Yours drill was faulty. You should get it replaced.

2. Makita is a step down from blue bosch.

3. Makita have a big problem with batteries. Check on ebay for "faulty Makita 18v".

4. This drill is a great piece of kit. I have two of them since 2013

5. I know what I'm talking about cause I have almost full set of blue Bosh 18v power tools.
2x drill, Impact driver, Planer, Circular saw, Jigsaw , Mouse sander , SDS Drill, Blower, Hoover, 8x 4ah Batteries and few Chargers

Also corded mitre saw

Not a single one of them went wrong. The drill actually had toughest life of all of them as many times I was using them to mix the plaster and tile adhesive.
Screwfix have these as standard price for only £5 more? Is it really a great price?

Makita is not a step down from Bosch, but it depends on which models you're comparing, a cheap Makita is going to be worse than an expensive Bosch and vice versa, Yes they had battery issues which hasn't been the case for several years. I don't want to get into some fanboy pointless argument crap but my Makita tools have been faultless and my Bosch have been troublesome... so it's the luck of the draw to some degree. However this deal looks pretty decent for the price.

A blue Bosch drill for under £100 is not bad at all.

Lol you can’t make your point with the argument “I own lots of Bosch so they’re amazing”.

there is a reason every single tradesman I know has a Makita or dewalt

Nah.

The real reason why I've invested in to Blue Bosch tools is because we have used (abused) them in my previous workplace.

In 5 year time not a single one of them went wrong (apart the one drowned for a two weeks)

Never had a problem with Bosch drills even though I'm now mainly on the Dewalt system, I still use Bosch's excellent 10.8/12v compact range professionally, very tough and durable. I've got various cordless tools from Hitachi, Makita, Bosch, and Dewalt and the only problem I've had with any of them is Makita batteries failing prematurely.

Can't find exact item you purchased. I looked at other drills but confused on choosing one. Would you know what GST, GSB mean?
Also any suggestions from warehouse products, may be second in your list?

Hi, It seems like the one that I purchased is no longer available. To be honest I'm don't know enough to comment on the difference between GST and GSB models.

@gridhart I rung Bosch this morning on an unrelated matter and they said the GST is normally a jigsaw.

the Bosch blue has one of the best rated torque outputs on the market


In the interest of presenting facts rather than opinion, current class-leaders of 18v combi drills have more than twice this Bosch's max torque, and there must be a good dozen or more offerings (including from Bosch themselves) with significantly more torque than this model.

Notwithstanding the above 60-odd Nm of torque is certainly very capable, and probably until a few years ago would have been the upper end, though it's fast becoming the norm now.

You are wrong - find me an 18v combi drill in the same price bracket as the Bosch blue with a higher torque.

I am not wrong. You didn't say "in the same price bracket", you said "on the market". They are not one and the same as you well know so stop back-peddling, lest I start on your hilarious comments on another post about a combi drill not being suitable for driving screws.

I'm astounded that you have the audacity to call me clueless when you regularly demonstrate your ignorance on matters, while talking like an expert. The Bosch doesn't have one of the best torque ratings on the market. It is middle of the road. That is a fact, something that you would do well to familiarise yourself with before criticising others.
You can argue the toss all you like, but you can't argue with facts so calling me clueless isn't going to change reality, nor sway people who have the common sense to verify what I say.
