Watch out- this isn't the hammer drill version that people are talking about on this thread. This has no hammer action so won't drill through brick
This is PSR version without hammer action and this price is not really a good price for it.
you better get the PSB version with hammer action,for general household / diy jobs.

Yes absolutely brilliant drill, got one few years ago.
They also have the PSB version with two batteries - which is an extra £20

The one you have is PSB version which has hammer action but the one of this deal is the inferior PSR version without hammer action.

Ahh my bad
Yes i got it with 2 batteries for £50 off amazon
I bought the PSB version with 2 batteries a couple of years back too. Very pleased with it. I keep looking out for the matching impact driver, but that never seems to be on offer. :-(
Can anyone link the hammer version please?
Is £80 a good price for the hammer drill? Is it better to add more money and get the £150 de walt drill from screw fix?

It depends.

I have the PSB version, and it's more than adequate for all the jobs in my house, with the exception of drilling into our really hard brick. Saying that, most entry level 18v drill will probably struggle (including that DeWalt).

I would say the best route is to buy the PSB Bosch, and use the money you save to buy a corded SDS drill (you can get one for around 70-80 pounds). That way you can tackle anything (although you will need to invest in 2 sets of bits)

Hey , for DIY household duties the PSB 18 has the vital hammer action. It often drops down to 50-60 on Amazon and comes with two batteries. For house use one battery is probably enough. I mixed a 20kg self leveling concrete with mine the other day and still had 50%+ power from an aged 1.5ah battery. I also like the fact that it is made in Hungary.

If you fancy a DeWalt , the entry level 18v dcd776 is a little faster , slightly higher torque and seems to hit slightly harder with the hammer action. This one also has final assembly in the UK. Can be found occasionally from 65 to 75 with a single battery. It is heavier than the Bosch and a bit bigger which is noticeable in confined spaces.

I have both and a German made corded SDS. Either of these cordless will see you right. They usually have demo models in at bnq so you can see how they fit your hand .

Definitely worh paying the extra for the PSB, but be aware that both of the Robert Dyas deals only come with 1.5Ah batteries.
I have the impact driver version and its absolutely fantastic. I have used it extensively for about 4 years and never let's me down. I personally prefer it over the dewalt as its small and light. The battery is small but lasts pretty long.
B&Q has this as well, website under maintenance now so I can't check, but it is £55 full price delivered. Free delivery if you spend over £50.

Same here, which means this is a pretty rubbish deal if it’s only a single battery / no hammer action.
Better off with psb model
6yrs ago I got this with extra battery for £65. I'd definitely try find one with extra battery. It's a great help. Charge one while using the other

The hammer action is ok, but doesn’t really go into our house bricks. I have the psb version and use it all the time, pictures, shelving, flat packs, fencing, decking, but I also have a £20 corded hammer drill for the odd time I need to drill into brickwork.
I can definetely confirm this is £5 cheaper at B&Q. £55 and free delivery.

What's the difference between this and the PSB 1800? Paid £30 on black Friday for the PSB with 2 batteries (may have been 40 but with £10 off Amazon deal)

PSB has hammer action. £30-40 with 2 batteries was an absolute bargain.

This one isn't the combi version, so doesnt have hammer action, so is not as good
The Makita one advertised yesterday much better value.
The PSB (hammer action) which can often be found for £50-60 with 2 batteries is a much better deal

£50!?
If you are investing in the Bosch power4all system you should also bear in mind that there are now two types of batteries. They both work on the green tools but require different chargers. The other drill being recommended in this thread is a great piece of kit & a much better buy when it's on special. Steer clear of this one.

Yeah checked mine, and I did pay £30, but that was with 2x £10 off offers that were flying around at the time.

Looks like £50 was a very good price for the PSB, but also looks like it occasionally drops to £60.

Wow that’s ridiculously cheap! So drilling into brick is fine?

I've only ever used it on brick for drilling, and for screwing things in and it's been perfect
I found this drill struggled with solid compressed wood. I had on 20 torque setting. And the hammer looking icon in the selection rotary thing

Wasn't this drill then
The right bits & the right setting for what you are drilling make a big difference.
