You can’t compare Bosch green tools to blue. Blue are designed for trade, green for diy. Not the same at all

Is this one "better" than the other (green) one then?

As I said, blue are trade tools, green diy. Blue designed for heavy use and more robust. Just google Bosch green vs blue. It is common knowledge with all trades.
From memory the Bosch Pro come with a 24 Month warranty unlike the green diy units provided you register them.

Brilliant bargain, these are great, and more powerful than you might think, hot!
An excellent tool. Far superior to the green version. Use one of these every day at work. Battery lasts a long long time.
Great drill for the price I have one
I bought a similar model a while ago and it was 3 year on the tool and 2 year warranty on the charger + battery

Its a good price. However, I find i used drill drivers very little nowadays.
Always end up either grabbing an impact driver or a combi drill.
But i understand not everyone wastes as much money as I do on tools I don't need.

For anyone who does buy, I'd recommned looking for a cheap bare impact driver too!

This is a combi btw.
Had this for several years and it's simply excellent.

It is and it is a quality tool but I would say it would be used more as a driver than drill. A bit of light drilling, maybe softwoods or lighter metal but don’t think heavy stone/brick/metal. Also only 1.5ah batteries. But a great driver 🏻

I just bought a Bosch PSB 18 Green combi and that came with a two year guarantee assuming I registered it.
Ordered, needed a new drill

Why the price disparity between these 2 models on offer today? The green one is more expensive, I'm just trying to work out whether I should be cancelling that order and getting this blue one? My old plastacine Black and Decker has eventually seized up - very light work I would use it for and only occasionally.

If mainly as a driver then the blue. The green may be able to handle heavier drilling tasks but the life of the green machine will be less than the blue. So the green is a proper Combi drill the blue more of a driver but can be used for light drilling.
The blue is a trade tool designed to be used everyday and will last much longer. The green a diy-er tool designed for occasional use.
So you say light work, then I would say get the blue, better quality, last years longer.
I have been after a decent quality light work combi drill for a while. Just joined prime for a month free to get this deal. Heat.

Yes.
I know the pro range are more robust than the green range but it seems to me that this particular one with the 10.8V battery may be a little under powered compared to the green PSB with 18V battery.

The green one may not be as robust but it has more torque and power than this which may be a better choice for those performing the odd DIY task a few times a year

Great bit of kit - had one for over 3yrs.

I posted a deal for one of these back then which has a lot of useful links so I have linked it below: hotukdeals.com/dea…751

The best link is the one showing how this little drill can drill into brick as long as you use the right bit:

Although the op says 10.8v the product page says 12v. As a light drill this will be ok and as a driver it will out perform the green 18v, especially in longevity. The blue will last years more than the green.
Always blue over green, there really is no contest.

It's a 3S lithium battery, Bosch used to call it 10.8v (3.6v *3) but they renamed to to 12v. It's the same thing

Yeh, totally agree (buy cheap, buy twice). Was just confused on the pricing structure, even before the discounted pricing, it "appeared" the green was the better bang for buck (being slightly dearer).

You have to completely separate blue and green, they are not the same thing. You can’t compare the two. When it arrives you will know straight away what I’m talking about. I have the blue 18v with 4ah battery, great quality.
But will it have enough power as compared to the green. It may last longer but will it do the same jobs as the green?

For example, the green has about 10Nm more torque and higher rated hammer action

But he said light use. It depends what jobs you want to do. You are comparing amature tools designed for occasional use to professional tools designed for everyday trade use. If you need heavy use, drilling big holes in hard stone or thick steel then neither of these will do. If you are say building flat pack furniture or putting a shelf up I’d still have the blue.
I've ordered this by the way. This is a professional drill not like the casual DIY stuff. As someone mentioned I'm going to keep an eye out for a bare impact driver.
Heat. Thanks, ordered this. I ordered a GUILD drill for £40 from Argos, since it included 2 batteries, 18v which work for my worx drill. But could not resist, since it's the blue professional drill. I used the STUDENT15 so got this drill for £35. Bargain. Now, I have a good selection of drills, (yeah I know, GUILD but isn't for screwing and drilling wood, not heavy drilling though), my next purchase, an impact drill but I wait, maybe, Black Friday will have a good deal on those.
Cheers
Bought this over the green 18v one. Hope I've made the right decision.

An impact driver has no chuck, it is a dedicated driver. If you were just using a driver all day maybe in assembling something then impact driver. If you were making something that required a combination of drilling/driving, maybe putting up shelves, plugging wall then screwing brackets in then a Combi, though in reality most would just have either one Combi and one impact or 2 Combi. This is simply for speed so you don’t have to keep swapping from drill to driver bits
Omg this deal is amazing!! I’ve been looking for a replacement drill for a while now and this is perfect for what I need it for!! Also used STUDENT15 and got this for £34.99!!! Heat Added for this!!! Thanks
