Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why use anything else! I bought a cordless drill/saw combo kit, and got this with a rebate. I thought sure, I will try it. When it came in the mail I thought, what a cute little homeowner tool. Well serves me right for judging from sight, this tool is simply the best drill/driver I have ever owned, and I have owned probably twenty or more. From tight spaces, to stripped out screws, this tool simply does the job, without delay. The only drawback is the amount of dust my other tools have accumulated from non-use. I work this tool HARD, everyday, and there is never any doubt as to its dependability. I own ten Bosch tools, and eventually all my tools will be Bosch.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great drill except for the chuck I bought this drill and wanted to return it but I already got it dirty. The chuck doesn't allow for quick changes because the bit holder gets crooked. The tips of the three chuck teeth have a little tip in the middle that no other brand has. I love Bosch tools and have plenty of them but this is the first and last cordless drill I'll get from them, back to Milwaukee. this tip thing is aggravating. Other then that it's well built like all of their tools.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good, dependable drill I've owned the Bosch 12V model for 7 years and used it regularly for my work and now the batteries have finally gotten to the point where they just won't hold a charge so I decided it was time to invest in a new drill. I bought another Bosch strictly because of the service I got out of the 12V drill. I haven't used the new one a lot yet but if it is half the drill the 12V one was ill be more than happy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bosch user for years First Bosch Drill I owned was a old 14.4 volt. witch I got back in 1999 . two months ago the First of two Battery Packs just went bad. the Drill still works Great so I thought I would pass it down too my son. It drove anything up too 3'' Tapcons all day long with no trouble at all. Bosch has made me a customer for Life. Bottom line is ! You want your money's worth. GET A BOSCH. Greg.
