The LED is the best I've seen. It illuminates a large area. The light comes on with slight preessure on the drill switch without activating the chuck.

High Quality Drill/Driver
My first use was to cut some holes in wood with a serrated tooth hole cutter. The Bosch put my old drill/driver to shame.

Very powerful. Will replace my Bosch impact driver for everyday use.
I have many Bosch products from Table saws to pocket drivers. Love the durability, ergonomics and smart precision design. You pay a little more upfront but get that little extra in engineering and material that make a significant difference in hard everyday use.

Looks new, works like new
This is the fourth Bosch reconditioned tool I have purchased and I have had no troubles with any of them. They look new and perform like new. The only downside is sometimes the selections are limited but keep watching and what you want will soon appear.

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.
