I’ve been looking for an impact driver for a while and after deciding that 18v (and £200 once you’ve bought batteries and a charger) was probably overkill for a hobbyist went for this blue professional Bosch 10.8v (marketed as 12v in the US) which has got some amazing reviews and plenty of plaudits from professionals.

The bare unit is £50-80 from most other shops (and the new brushless – and less powerful – is £130) with extra batteries £20-25 and the charger £25-30 so this is a bargain.

I threw in a spare battery and a set of impact bits to make it up to £100 and get ‘free’ delivery.

If you need a drill too then amazon have a good deal on a set amazon.co.uk/Bos…ver

But as I have plenty of drills (none of which have comparable drivers) this was a much better deal for me.

I've been using the screwdriver and impact driver for over 5 years. Quality kit, well worth it.

Same here. Well worth the money.
The power off this is impressive for such a small gun, bought the twin set a while back
Are all drills also drivers?

Sounds silly but wondering why some are called drill drivers. Was shopping for one earlier and wondered what the score was.
quality kit, used on sites daily without many issues.

If you have 3 mins, then this short video may help:

However, the long and short is that you can get:
Combi (Hammer) drills - provide hammer impact for drilling into masonry
Drill/Driver - essentially just provides rotational force - i.e. I wouldn't want to drill into a strong wall with one!
Impact driver - completely different beast. Provides considerable amounts of torque (more than a typical combi or driver drill). Used purely for driving screws, by providing longitudinal impact - i.e. down into the wood, and also with a lot of rotational force.

Hope that helps!
These are great, tempted to get a GSB 10.8 bare unit now to with this and the GSR
I am an occasional user of impact driver, have mixed bag of tools so the batteries are all different and this mains powered impact serves me well (just as an alternative) toolstop.co.uk/mak…829

This is just soooo stupid on so many levels, to pay £79 for a CORDED!!! impact driver when you can get for £60 cordless makita with 160nm instead of that parody of 100nm.
seriously who thought that a corded impact driver is a good idea?
Even in the factories where they assemble cars and run them all day long everyday all they use is cordless.
Love mine, been using one all day today battening down multi-foil sheet insulation in a loft conversion.

I do not assemble cars or work in a factory and for my use the cable is not an issue.also have no makita batteries so their £60 impact would serve me with 0 nm.

I don't work in a car factory either but I am fairly sure they would use air driven drivers and ratchets.
bought the twin set. good quality drills
