Good price. I got mine for about 45 or 50 on Amazon on BLACK Friday sale with 2 batteries but haven't seen it anywhere near that price again. Hot.
Good price, shame the chuck is a bit rubbish. I had to get mind refunded after 3 exchanges. Looking on line, there were a lot of people complaining about the bit coming loose, because the chuck wouldn't hold the bit

Same here bought mine on Amazon on black Friday with the extra battery for £66 not had any problems yet with moderate use
Got mine on Amazon black Friday for £30 with an extra battery (and using a gift card) and it's stellar! Not had an issue with it not being able to drill or screw anything yet. Corded drill go eat your heart out.
If it had two batteries I’d bite.

The amazon one was the PSB which is a hammer drill so more flexible than this, was £50 as I got one.
Good price , thanks
"tough and demanding drilling" LOL,
i tried drilling in dense brick and given up after a few minutes.
plugged in mains one and hole was done in 3 seconds.


the cordless bosh is good around the house but not for any "tough" jobs

DOH! My bad, I didn't notice the R, yes, my one was the PSB which had the problems and everyone online complaining about it. It didn't stop it drilling, but after every 1 or 2 holes, the bit would come loose

I have a Bosch cordless hammer drill too and the power is not comparable to my old no mark corded. But it's nice to have the option of both and the cordless one is good for wood projects.

This isn't a hammer drill though. Just a cordless screwdriver with ability to drill?

I've heard this time and again, but never had significant problems with the mine. YES, if it's not tight enough it will work loose but in years of use this has happened to me a handful of times and all of those times were my fault.

I've found the PSB 18 suitable for punching holes through double brick walls with 10+ mm drill bits, so for all but the heaviest work it's totally fine. Note the "new" PSB 1800 is more compact and has half the torque. Don't know the PSR but suspect that without hammer action it's not going to be that useful as a drill.
For the jobs around the house, is it something acceptable or is it too expensive and there are cheaper options? Voted hot nonetheless
Ordered. It's the case that swung it, essential extra to keep organised.

I did the same. Drills solid walls quite easily. I always thought id need 2 batteries from comments. But one is all i would have ever needed.
I have a bosch cordless drill driver with non lithium batteries from a few years ago. After about a year both batteries would only hold a charge for about a day without use (extremely rapid self discharge), and after a couple more years they won't even take enough charge to do more than one screw. This is with light infrequent domestic use.

I know batteries deteriorate over time and use but can I expect much better from the lithium version?

I generally like Bosch as a brand, and have several corded Bosch tools which work great without issues.
This is not the PSB hammer drill
Got the hammer drill version of this and overall it’s been pretty good. Chuck does come loose on occasion. Would still recommend it.

That was the original PSB 18, they have made a new PSB 18 with a new chuck. They also make a PSB 1800 which is smaller and less powerful.
However this model is a PSR which an even lesser model and is not a hammer drill.

I owned the original PSB 18 and although a very good drill the chuck was a bit of a pain. I now own both the new PSB 18 & PSB 1800 plus the impact driver and 4 batteries, this covers all my needs..

We get the same story and confusion every time a Bosch cordless drill is put on HUKD

I have this drill and i struggle sometimes to get through masonary and also another downside with it is the screwdriver bit isnt magnetic and neither are the Bosch drill piece kit which goes along side this

You will, as others have said this is not a hammer drill! Don't really understand why this is getting so hot, unless voters are mistaking it for the PSB.

Yes, the Lithium batteries work as well as you would achieve from a modern smartphone/laptop. Charge them once and they are usable for months and months, and they will last years.

The old NiCd batteries were awful - that was just the state of the art at the time and we've moved on.

But I still wouldn't recommend the PSR drill, get the hammer action PSB instead. If you want the compact one get the PSB 1800 but if you need more power stick with the PSB 18.

Mines got hammer drill setting. Seems ok for first bit of masonary but then it starts to struggle. Post is quite misleading actually as i first thought it was the PSB. maybe should state in description just so people dont get mixed up

Thanks for the very useful feedback.

I do have a (very) heavy duty corded SDS hammer drill which I use for pretty much anything masonry related, but it does weigh an absolute ton.

I guess it would still be handy to have a smaller hammer drill that can be picked up without a weight lifting back support, especially for use on ladders etc...
This one or the Aldi one for 49.99??

Thanks
Just paid this amount for a higher capacity replacement battery and charger

I have a 10.8v (hammer) drill for small jobs and screwdriving. Much more portable than either, and actually still has a good variable speed control and plenty of torque for all but the most ridiculous screwdriving. I don't see the point of getting a non-hammer action drill when the hammer ones are barely a pound dearer, barely 100g heavier, and barely 10mm larger.
Bought this a few months ago with 2 batteries for £49.99
