Good price for this drill/driver set. Have never used the impact driver but the drill is very good and surprisingly powerful for it's size, can do anything my Bosch green 18v drill can do.

Set includes:

1 x GSB10.8-2-LI Professional Combi Drill

1 x GDR10.8V-LI Professional Impact Driver

2 x 10.8v 2ah Li-ion Batteries

1 x Charger

1 x L-Boxx

Good price. I'm on the hunt for a decent combo at the moment. Any other recommendations? budget circa £250

Thanks

just voted hot but i somehow completely missed that these were 10.8v , not a bad deal but not a mega one like it first appeared to be.

Are they not as powerful as others?

10.8v is weak.

10.8v tools are less powerful than 18v tools, the two reasons for choosing 10.8V over 18V are smaller size and price, the 18V equivalent of this set sells for over £200.

One thing to bear in mind is this set is part of the Bosch blue range aimed at professionals or serious DIYers and is of better quality than cheaper tools intended for casual DIY. This is what I was getting at when I compared the drill in this pack with my 18v Bosch green drill (their cheaper DIY range). Although in theory the 18v green is more powerful, I found no difference in performance between it and the much smaller 10.8v drill here, both went through wood, plasterboard and breezeblocks with ease but didn’t cope well with brick.

The DeWalt 10.8v set is excellent. Light weight, will stand on its base (which these won't) and will do most jobs that don't require a hammer drill or getting through thick steel.

Just noticed the same retailer is selling this through their ebay store. The price is the same but you can get both cashback via TCB and Nectar points when buying through ebay.

Comparing this to an 18v is like apples and pears. This is a specific tool for specific job. Those in the trade will know what im talking about, most DIYers can get away with the cheap B&D drill that will get used once in a blue moon. This is a good deal however and I do have a lot of the Bosch blue 10.8v range. It does crack me up when I see some DIY fan dust off their professional tool to use and it's in immaculate condition, save the money if you don't use it every day like us in the trade.

Im a serious DIYer with some commercial use. I have this set and a cheaper 18V set. The Bosch 10.8V is great and dont be fooled by its lower power. The drill will easily go into red brick and i have had no problem driving 100mm screws into wood for framing with the impact driver. Dont get me wrong the 18V is better but you dont always need that much grunt!
The reason i got them was due to weight saving over the 18V stuff. Im very happy with them and would recommend to anyone.

That's a bit condescending. I'm not "in the trade" but I prefer to buy good, durable and effective tools rather than cheap stuff. A good tool is a good tool, whether you use it once a month or every day. If longevity was the only issue, then you might have a point. I bought a cheap SDS drill, because it was only likely to be used for a single job, but all my other kit tends to be DeWalt. And not just because I like the colour. Oops, sorry, I mean the colour doesn't enter into it.
