This one replaced an identical drill i bought 20 years ago. As good as any of the more expensive makes.

“Where have you been all my life?
, An excellent drill, it should last a DIYer for ever
Really good hard hitting drill.
A good sds drill, a bit lighter than the standard models and design is more compact.
Bought it for my son, exactly what he wanted. Good quality and reasonably priced.
This is a great drill, although rather bigger and heavier than i had expected. Replacing an old (more than 30 years) drill – don’t expect ever to have to buy another one. Nice long mains lead, nice case to keep it in. Don’t forget you need sds drill bits for it.
Great drillbought this as an in between drillbetween my hammer drill makita and heavy duty titan sds drill and its great.
It is bosch and is just great.
This sds drill is the business. Drills and chisels effortlessly. I previously had the green diy version which eventually went bang, this blue version feels more powerful and solid. An excellent drill, it should last a diyer for ever.
It’s been thoroughly abused ripping hundreds of square metres of tiles of walls, knocking out countless holes in masonry and even drilling 127mm cores out for extractors. It finally died yesterday drilling a 127mm core through concrete, you really shouldn’t use this drill for core drilling it’ll kill it. I’ve bought the model up from this one but absolutely recommend buying this as it’s lasted 5 years of constant abuse. If your a diyer this should last a lifetime. An amazing bit of kit that’s a proper bargain.
An sds drill is just a completely different animal especially when it comes to masonary. It goes through old tough engineering bricks like butter. Its simple to use, comes in a nice big storage case to keep all the bits safe and together. It’s got a quality build and feel your expect from bosch. Usually drilling for the walls in our house leave me sweaty, swearing and fed up having to pollyfill where my old drill hit the bricks and just skipped around and took half the plaster off. This drill just goes straight in the wall leaving two neat holes.
Had a heavy duty makita which went walkies , so needed a new drill asap. Have to say not dissappointed its as powerful as my old drill but a lot lighter.
This is a big drill with a lot of power and potential for big jobs. It is heavy, which is good sometimes. It is unlikely to struggle with anything the keen diyer is going to tackle. It feels rugged and pretty bullet proof. Shame that it is let down by the sds chuck. I found it impossible to find a sds drill bit for the work that i intended to use the tool on. The chuck is small and cannot take a drill bit of the size that the tool is capable of handling. However it is still a good tool for heavy work, provided the hole diameter is not too big.
Great drill cuts into brick like poking a stick into a river using makita 8mm drill bit.
I have two best drill on market.
Where have you been all my life. ? why has it taken so long to discover the delights of an sds hammer drill?. Ordinary electric drills are puny cousins of this miracle-worker. It tackles pebbly concrete like an conventional drill going through brick. I’m sure everyone out there knows that they require special ‘sds’ or ‘sds plus’ drill bits (which are all the same thickness at the chuck end) – but just in case, you are warned that you may need a new set of masonry bits as well.
This drill now makes me look very professional , i take it everywhere with me , i even taken it to my local swimming pool , i’ve also stated wearing my full metal jacket when i use this bosch drill , and i can’t stop singing ” i wanna be your drill instructor ”.
A machine of fine quality would reorder with your company any time keep up the good work regards martin.
Bought to drill into brickwork to fit some steel cabinets in my garage. Awesome, i wish i had bought one years ago. I retire soon so will try the chisel action as i have some mortar that could do with replacing.
I had the previous generation of this drill and liked it so it was a no brainer to upgrade to this version with higher impact energy. Works well and feels well made and robust.
Excellent my husband is very pleased with the drill.
Brought to replace old bosch sds 24 v cordless. This drill is smaller lighter and better than my old drill and has chisel function. This drill is made in germany.
So far really good, made drilling through some tough masonry very easy. My only very small bug bear is the depth gauge will mark your wall when it hits so i put a small rubber foot on the tip. Only had light use but so far very pleased.
