Excellent little drill this - no brainer at this price.
Amazing bargain, these are great, get one !
This is a very handy drill. It's compact, but surprisingly heavy and powerful for its size. It's usually about £20 more than this.

However, somebody is bound to ask "I need a drill. Should I buy this?" The answer is probably no. This will accomplish 95% of your drilling tasks, but the trouble is that you'll also need something more powerful in reserve.
Is it brushless? Don't think so..
At this price, this is fantastic value. Highly recommended. It's one of those tools that's always handy to have, although I agree with an earlier comment, that if it's your only drill you will probably want something a little more powerful.
Any decent bare tool offers for this?
I have the older version of this. I've had it about 4-5 years and it's been brilliant. Bosch blue are excellent products.

The same will be true if you buy an 18v cordless though, if you're a DIYer there will still be jobs you need a mains drill for.

I own one of these 12v drills, a Bosch pro 18v hammer drill and an SDS drill, I hardly ever use the 18v these days and could easily live without it altogether.

Great little drill for quick jobs that don't require the brute force of a bigger (18v/240v) drill.

For bigger jobs or when faced with drilling a lot of holes into brick or concrete, something more substantial will be required, but for drilling a few holes into wood, brick or concrete at a time, this will be fine as it has a "hammer" function.

As "Argyll68" says, "Bosch Blue" stuff is great gear.

I got one during "Prime day" a while back @ £58ish, so this is an even better deal............while it lasts.

Go get one!

I’m the same, 12v with the rare use of the SDS still. Try not to use the 18v.
I have the green one, Easy Impact 1200, with the fixed battery and have to say I love it, I DO NOT NEED THIS..... do I?
Edited by: "Donkii" 22nd Aug
I have a blue 18v drill and an impact driver, but they take up a lot of room. This looks like I could probably fit it into my main bag instead, is it really as small as it looks?

Sorry I was meaning extra tools to buy on top of this
I bit the bullet and got one. Im tired of using my extra heavy worx hammer drill and it takes ages to charge i hope this comes in handy or will it just collect dust on the shelf lol

Well, I don't agree. Sometimes with 18V hummer drill drilling takes more time, but you will do what you have to do around the home. At some point, I even placed SDS drill into my 18v drill and I drilled through the wall.

I caved in too!
Just returning the one I bought last week for £82 to repurchase at £55, lucky I was too lazy to get around to the job I wanted it for! Amazingly good quality, 2 batteries and since you’ve got the batteries, at this price, order the impact driver as well!
New to DIY (just bought first house).. Would this work for putting up curtain poles into solid brick walls? Cheers

Yes. Good as a drill driver. Wouldn't want to be doing lots of drilling brick walls
This drill is old. Get the newer one which is smaller, with battery indicator and light and not a lot more.
:-( too late, showing £78.99 now.

Got a link? Assuming you mean the GSR it's nearly twice this price if you want the batteries and charger?
Don't forget to register the warranty. 3 years for the drill, 2 for the batteries. My charger has no info on it so couldn't register that?

webapp.bosch.de/war….do
@tek-monkey Any chance you could do me a small favour bud?

Could you check the case to see if it has a Bosch part no. stamped or marked on it and advise.

I need a case for my drill and want to see if this one would be compatible as I have the previous (10.8v) version - I think my drill will fit but think they have made the newer chargers smaller so my charger may not fit.

Cheers.
Can't see anything I'm afraid, there's a smooth panel on the bottom which looks like it should have something there, but just like the charger it's blank.

No worries - thanks for checking.
