The bit is ideal for drilling into areas where the drill itself won't fit (i.e. flooring studs from underneath the floor). The unique design with the starter tip dug right in and the aggressive outer spade style bit finished off the job in no time. The bit is well made and should last a long time.

Drills way too fast, gets itself stuck
With that screw tip it pulls itself in way too fast, it buries itself stuck and then reverse won't even get it out. I tried pulling back on a drill while drilling but it just takes hold and pulls itself in any way. if you tap the trigger go and inch and pull it all the way out going inch and pull it all the way out is the only way I could get it not to get stuck, but then eventually they even got stuck doing that and it burnt up my Hitachi hammer drill trying to get it out. (Not on hammer feature but it is a hammer drill) I will be taking it back if I can get it out. As you can see in the picture it's only in a few inches.

Thank you for your recent post on the HomeDepot.com website. We appreciate your feedback and will forward your comments to our Product Managers with regards to the DLSB1005 Spade Bit. The DareDevil Spade Bits have a Full cone threaded tip, so the bit will pull itself into the wood. A Forstner bit would be a better bit for fine woodworking and provides a smooth bottom. It is also recommended to use a 3 jaw chuck drill driver instead of an impact driver as it may snapped the shank of the bit. We would like to send you a replacement if you write back with your name, shipping address and phone number. I am very hopeful to hear from you and help you resolve the difficulties you’ve experienced. For further assistance, contact us at 1-877-BOSCH99 (1-877-267-2499) from Mon-Fri 7A-7P CST. Thank you for your time.

    The drillbit was great with the exception of it coming separated from the drill bit extension I bought and getting lost in the middle of my deck in about 20 inches of wood.

      Best of Both
      This bit is a great combination between a spade bit and an auger bit. It drills fast clean holes and pull itself through like an auger bit. Yes, it does require some torque, but my 18V Rigid Li-Ion had absolutely no problems delivering; even with a flexible shaft in the middle (Yeah I did that!) Great bit, did what I needed.

      Time saver
      I'm an electrician and use these bits to install disconnects almost every day and have found these bits are a real time saver. Occasionally I may hit a nail, but using a chainsaw file I can usually sharpen the flutes again and extend the life of the bit. We usually install through the wood seals from basements of older homes which can be 8 inches thick, the trick is to hold back on the feed a little bit. Works great.

        less than 1 star.
        New out of the package it was not straight. It broke in half on the 3rd hole going through 2x4 studs. Not pleased to say the least. Bosch builds good tools, but this turned me off there bits and blades. not happy. Cost me time and money to go get another one, different brand.......

          Waste of money
          Got this spade bit to drill through 2x6 deck boards. Each time, the threaded tip engaged quickly, but as soon as the paddles engaged the wood, the bit bound in the wood and could not be removed by reversing the drill. I had to detach the bit and twist it out with locking pliers. So I called Bosch customer service, who said they were unfamiliar with the problem. However, if you read other reviews on this site, you will see several others who had the same problem. Bosch suggested I use the bit only at low rpm, which I tried, but continued to have the same problem. So if you only want to drill holes 1/2" deep, this is a great product! Beyond that, a complete waste of money. I didn't get a single hole drilled.

          Home Depot is focused on ensuring complete customer satisfaction. As the manufacturer, we are very interested in supplying consumers with a quality product that delivers the expected performance. We are sorry to hear about the issue you experienced with the bit. The DareDevil spade bits have a full cone threaded tip so the bit will pull itself into the wood. These bits are designed for rough carpentry. A Forstner bit would be a better bit for fine woodworking and hardwoods and it also provides a smooth bottom. For further assistance, contact us at 1-877-BOSCH99 (1-877-267-2499) from Mon-Fri 7A-7P CST.
            Drill bit broke only about 10 inches down and now is stuck in wood. Piece of garbage.
