This is a price match to B&Q, on offer this weekend if you want to get it at this price now.

Says In stock but then 2-3 weeks during checkout

got mine today from b & q what a difference from my old one!

To the person that posted the heads up last week for b and q , thanks very much, got ours today

Great price for an excellent home diy drill. Really happy with mine. Light, easy to use and more then enough power for jobs around the home.

I also bought the bosch multi-construction drill bits which, combined with this drill, really do a fanatic job

What reasons could I have for buying this when I have a corded drill?

the fact it has no cord lol

It says £89.99+ 4.99 delivery

Good drill brought at a higher price quite small to fit in awkward spaces.

Can anyone tell me what the main difference is between the PSB and GSB models, PSB is nearly twice the weight.

The listing on Amazon will be total boxed weight with drill, 2 batteries, charger, case etc, also Amazon aren't very accurate with their listing's weights

The Argos listing for this gives the drills weight as 1.15kg

PSB is the professional range bigger battery and better torque range , probably a better motor.

ill second that

I got one of these last year both batteries are already dead/worn out and at £30 a replacement id spend a little more on reflection and get something with a decent battery IMO.

Thanks OP, I've been thinking about a new drill for a while so I've order this. There are 7 in stock at the moment with "more on the way".

How does this compare to black and decker li 2 for £50?

No it isn't - the GSB is the pro one in blue as are all Bosch pro gear. The DIY stuff is in green.

You're right way round.

I've had this a few years now and it's been used in some fairly big diy projects, really impressed with the money and stands up to some heavy use well. Would definitely buy again at this price.

Just ordered one now. Have some heat, great find. Just in time for some summer DIY!

Bought from b and q. Thanks!

It's cordless:)

Awful drill - had for 2 years and far worse than my Hitachi and Fat Max. Constantly the chuck loosens and has to be re tightened, only has a 10mm chuck too.
Battery is a sod to get off the drill and in and out of the charger. Really bad, do not buy this! Mine is going on EBay one day, will be lucky to get £40

could be a good time to upgrade my aging nicad drill.

Yeah because you have a 2yr old drill!

Don't buy it from Hollywell Tools then! click on the cheapest (Amazon) to the right....

Bargain for the average DIYer. This sort of kit is normally nearer £100. Li-ion, 2 Batteries, 18V, and not some obscure own-brand. Not for the heavy user but a good deal. Only downside is 1.5 AH batteries, but Hitachi with a pair of 2.5 AH batteries goes for twice the price. I would prefer the Hitachi, but at this price this is a steal.

Is this an impact driver as well like this … Is this an impact driver as well like this http://www.amazon.co.uk/DeWalt-DCF886D2-Cordless-Brushless-Batteries/dp/B00EQCGHWS/ref=sr_1_4?s=diy&ie=UTF8&qid=1437860827&sr=1-4&keywords=impact+driver




No this is not a impact drill, and while I generally like Bosch tools they really let the side down with this one. As others have said the batteries last a couple of years, mine failed with 4 weeks of each other. It wasn't down to use as one got used at least four times the amount of the other. The chuck is the worst I have ever had the displeasure to use. it constantly works loose, doesn't matter if you're using it for drilling or screwing every second use its loose. If the batteries had lasted any longer I was getting to the point I was going stick a screwdriver adaptor in it and lacquer up the chuck to see if that worked.

Guess that's why they are cheap. The price is good so heat for that, would I buy again, a definite no even at half this price. At least if you buy from B&Q easy enough to return for a refund.

MASSIVE ALERT GUYS For those who purchased this from B&Q today, I purchased this one too from B&Q, I went to my local Homebase, mentioned this and they gave me price match with 10% off!!

Wrong about it not being an impact drill unless you are just being sarcastic. But potentially right about the chuck, my Bosch was truly awful at staying tight, put me off ever buying again.

Agree - chuck is horrendous but you're wrong, it is an impact drill. Battery fitment is truly terrible. You'll be screaming at it to get the battery out, and also out of the charger. Truly horrid drill

So you bought two??

On a slightly different topic, can anyone compare Bosch drill with Einhell equivalent? I am a first timer and noticed that Einhell ones appear in amazon.de lightning sales more often and even with a delivery charge, they are a lot cheaper.

Got mine last year same price at B&Q you will not be disappointed get it while you can

Bought one of these last year (without the spare battery) and it's a great drill at a great price, especially with the extra battery thrown in.

Cold for me

Can't remember where I read it but I believe the earlier models had a problem with the chuck lostening however this was fixed by bosch so all currently available models shouldn't suffer from this issue anymore.

Admittedly I've only had it for a short while but so far I've not had a problem with the chuck once
