Is that a Lbox you get with it?
I’ve got this. It’s great!

It's an L case, it stacks on top of Lboxes but doesn't have the locking handles.

Check with screwfix though, I bought the twin pack of this drill plus the impact wrench and it was advertised with this case but came with an Lboxx.

Great drill, very lightweight.
Probably a really daft question but would this be any good for putting up shelves etc.?

What do people think between the offer in the above link and this one for a very casual DIY user? Bosch warranty is one year versus 5 years for the JCB drill, I realise the bosch drill is brushless whereas the JCB is not

Warranty is 3 years on the drill and 2 on battery charger if you register it within 30 days

Anyone know what the difference is and which one is better?

The Amazon one has a brushed motor which is less efficient and doesn’t last as long as brushless. Also the Amazon one has 21nm of torque and this one has 55nm, so it’s more than twice as powerful. The Amazon one does have 2 batteries rather than 1 though.

...the Amazon one has 21nm of torque and this one has 55nm, ...


The 21Nm is for soft start, the Amazon GSB 18 V-21 is also 55Nm on hard start. There is also the Hitachi posted yesterday to consider. hotukdeals.com/dea…786 Picked the Hitachi up today and although I've not used it in anger it seems well made and runs smoothly.

for casual diy just get yourself something cheap. id recommend aldi/lidl drills with their good warranty and low cost.
bosch blue tools are for tradesmen.
The one thing this is really missing is a second battery.

After using my Bosch blue BRUSHED drill for over 5 years, if the battery dies in the middle of a project, I just put the spare battery in and carry on, whilst putting the flat one on charge. With one battery, if it goes flat, I would have to stop work.

I'd rather have a brushed motor & 2 batteries than a brushless motor and one battery.

There’s also a 2 battery version for another £20:

Isn't this the less powerful 50nm version?

Yeah but I very much doubt you’d be able to tell a difference of 5nm of hard torque when using it

You'd probably be better off using brackets, but this will drill the holes and drive the screws in fine.
