I have only used it once and i may be entirely wrong due to the time i charged it but my impression at least was that the battery would not last a very long time. Maybe 20 mins of continual drilling.
Arrived may 24th, thank you.
Bosch Professional GSB 12V-15 Cordless Combi Drill (Without Battery and Charger) – Carton
- At 189 mm it has the shortest design in its Class for optimum handling, especially when performing drilling and screw driving applications overhead and in tight spaces
- Unique Bosch premium lithium-ion technology for 400% longer lifetime and unbeatable battery runtime
- Practical battery charge level indicator with 3 LEDs
The drill very well built, no chuck wobble whatsoever. Feels very well balanced and just the right weight. Powerful impact feature that drill thru with ease on my walls even though my concrete drill bit is quite old. Just got the drill so can’t test the battery endurance just yet. All i can say is bosch never let me down once. Everything works and looks great.
Great to handle and though as to be expected, not the most powerful, it’s ideal for working with wood and is lightweight, compact and comfortable to use.
Brilliant little tool for the lighter jobs on site or in the home.
Bosch Professional GSB 12V-15 Cordless Combi Drill (Without Battery and Charger) – Carton : This top of the range in bosh power tools deserves high praise: good weight, balance and useful battery life from the miniscule power unit. The second battery, holster and proper bosh storage case addition make it a great set.
Powerful, balanced, and compact. Was trying to decide between cordless screwdriver or this and am very glad i chose this. Put together ikea bed with full charge still left on battery.
Awesome drill, tiny with oodles of power an charge, also the smallest hammer action drill i have used.
I recently bought the matching impact driver which really impressed me. I have a problem with arthritis in my wrists and hands and this is why i bought the 12v drill. It’s small and light, yet it is surprisingly powerful.
Bought this to accompany my gsr – great little tool.
Compact and handy for those tight spaces.
Needed a replacement as i use mine every day and it gets proper use. Just what i needed and very very good price. Nice little box it comes in also and it fits my charger aswell if i ever needed to take it anywhere.
Got it’s size this is an amazing drill. Yes it is a little more expensive but what you get is a top quality product, i cannot recommend it enough.
Yes am very pleased with it the only thing i would query is that the packet stated it was 10. 8 volt for which i have batteries but on the drill driver it says it’s 12volt. Its a really nice bit of kit.
Bought as a mobile tool which is proved invaluable – excellent quality from bosch.
Bosch brand top life works well.
This purchase is a follow up to an earlier purchase of the gsr ( non-hammer) variant. Not had a chance to use the hammer yet but these little low volt (10. 8) bosch’s are amazingly torquey for their size. Had a job last week (diy) drilling through joists, microbore pipes on top and barely 50mm space on each side, these drills will get through this gap and as the body is the thickest part no problem compared with battery drills with the ‘club’ battery at the bottom of the handle. This gsb is approx 20mm longer than the gsr due to the hammer section. I would suggest bigger batteries if you have the original 1. 3ah type for a masonary drill, i ordered a 2. 0ah to complement my original pair of 1. 3ah’s and maybe will add another. Now with 90% of home jobs covered by these, might consider updating ancient 400w bosch hammer to sds for anything requiring real muscle .
I have the older model and have done for years and it’s still as good as new. I see no reason why this model shouldn’t do as well. Comes with two 2ah batteries and sturdy case (although the latter’s a bit over the top). Ergonomics and balance are spot on.
I bought it mainly to use as a power driver. First used it to assemble a set of ikea office furniture and it did the job perfectly and the battery was still showing full when i’d finished. Slightly bulkier than i would have liked just for a power driver but i couldn’t find anything better at a reasonable price and of decent quality.
Added this to my growing collection of bosch professional 10. As a retired engineer i am slowly ‘miniaturising’ my comprehensive kit of heavy duty mains and battery tools which have served me well for many years. I have have found this bosch system very light and comfortable to use, and extremely powerful for the size. Well able to cope with 90% or more of the jobs i now tackle. Excellent service from seller too.
Very good service, it arrived on the 18th january 2016. I’m very pleased with the cordless drill and it’s accessory’s. I have since added the bosch gdr impact driver to fit in the nice case supplied with the gsb cordless drill. I’m very pleased with the case full of equipment.
I already have the non hammer versions and have found then excellent to use. Light weight and remarkably powerful and with a decent length charge. Really good to keep in the tool bag as are small, but very effective. I think this new one will be as good.
