nice little drill
I use two drill/drivers often and was looking for a replacement for the corded drill. This tool has plenty of power to replace a corded drill so now I don't have to deal with a cord. It is a trifle heavy but the way I use it weight is really not an issue. When my other cordless dies I will definitely buy another one of these. Good price too, fifty bucks cheaper than I could find elsewhere for a new tool.

Customer service makes this a 6 STAR!
I own this and many other cordless bosch products. I will list just a few .. not only do I own this drill but I have a 18v impact.. 12v driver, 12v driver drill, 12v video scope and a few others.. Not only do I own them but my family does as well.. I suggested to my father he should buy one we well, so he did.. but someone told him there was a rebate for some free batteries when he bought his.. he was unable to find any rebate form online so I started looking and was unable too as well.. so I picked up the phone and called Bosch.. Told them what we were told and that I couldn't find anyone about it online.. they told me they had no current rebates at the time but would gladly send me a few extra batteries if it would make me happy.. without any arguing or anything.. All I can say.. customer service AMAZING!... I trust I spent my moneyt WELL.. and a note I replaced my 7pc 18v dewalt set with this.. I still need to replace a few tools to fully get rid of the dewalt.. but I will be for sure.. amazing company.. my saws all is the only reason I still keep my dewalts around...

Weekend Warrior Tool Guy
I'm a typical weekend warrior working on home improvement projects on my own. I absolutely love the quality and reliability I get from my recently purchased Bosch Power Tools. I am always using my Bosch cordless drill! I've owned other brands in the past, and I can say Bosch is my preference.

great drill
I bought this drill a few weeks ago and I'm astonished how good the batteries are. I used the drill quite a bit for a weekend. I let the drill sit for a couple days and I started to use it again. The batteries were like the energizer bunny, they kept giong and going

Reliable tool
I work in the oil and gas construction industry and I have seen many drills fail where mine keeps going.  I don't take it easy on my drills they have to be able to hold up when I need to drill through steel beams so having a drill that will power through and a chuck that doesn't let go makes a huge difference.

REplaced my 10yr+ Dewalt 14V
Same weight but much more power and versatile. Only wish is it had onboard storage for one bit.

The Brute Tough is best drill for the money
Bosch makes great products that stand up and do what they are supposed to be able to do. This drill is no exception to that quality.
I use mine for some drilling but it receives most use as an ice augur for ice fishing. I can drill 50 or more holes in medium thick ice without changing batteries. It has NEVER let me down and this is my third season with the drill and the batteries. I absolutely LOVE it! The drill is everything I would expect from a High quality company like Bosch. I had to take back to the store my previous more expensive "high end" lithium ion drill from another very well known manufacturer because it didn't have enough torque to operate the drill for even one complete hole in the ice. You can't go wrong with this drill

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.
