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.

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.
