Bosch Professional GSB 12V-15 Cordless Combi Drill – This small drill meets almost every specification it got.

I not long ago acquired the matching influence driver which genuinely impressed me. I have a problem with arthritis in my wrists and hands and this is why i bought the 12v drill. It’s tiny and light-weight, nevertheless it is astonishingly strong.

Additional this to my escalating selection of bosch professional ten. As a retired engineer i am little by little ‘miniaturising’ my thorough package of weighty duty mains and battery resources which have served me very well for many yrs. I have have identified this bosch technique pretty gentle and relaxed to use, and extremely impressive for the measurement. Effectively able to cope with ninety% or extra of the employment i now tackle. Superb provider from vendor too.

I have the more mature model and have performed for decades and it truly is however as superior as new. I see no rationale why this model should not do as perfectly. Arrives with two 2ah batteries and durable scenario (despite the fact that the latter’s a bit around the leading). Ergonomics and balance are place on.

  • Compact and versatile tool
  • Bosch Professional drill
  • Yes am very pleased with it the only thing I would query is

Essential a substitution as i use mine each and every day and it will get suitable use. Just what i wanted and quite pretty very good value. Pleasant minor box it will come in also and it fits my charger aswell if i at any time desired to get it anyplace.

I acquired it generally to use as a electrical power driver. First applied it to assemble a established of ikea workplace furnishings and it did the work completely and the battery was still showing full when i might finished. A little bulkier than i would have favored just for a power driver but i could not uncover anything at all far better at a fair selling price and of first rate excellent.

Features of Bosch Professional GSB 12V-15 Cordless Combi Drill with two 12 V 2.0 Ah Lithium-Ion Batteries – L-Boxx

  • At 189 mm it has the shortest design in its class for optimum handling in applications overhead and in tight spaces
  • Newl 2 speed planetary gearbox for powerful screwdriving and drilling in wood and metal, impact drilling in masonry
  • Professional quality 10 mm Auto-Lock drill chuck
  • Practical battery charge level indicator can be used at any time to find out how much energy is left in the battery
  • Bosch Electronic Cell Protection (ECP): protects the battery against overload, overheating and deep discharge

I have only made use of it at the time and i may perhaps be fully improper thanks to the time i billed it but my impression at least was that the battery would not very last a very extended time. It’s possible 20 minutes of continual drilling.

Compact and powerful, my drill of decision now.

This invest in is a follow up to an previously obtain of the gsr ( non-hammer) variant. Not experienced a possibility to use the hammer nevertheless but these small small volt (ten. eight) bosch’s are incredibly torquey for their sizing. Had a task past week (do-it-yourself) drilling as a result of joists, microbore pipes on major and hardly 50mm room on each aspect, these drills will get by means of this hole and as the system is the thickest part no dilemma compared with battery drills with the ‘club’ battery at the base of the deal with. This gsb is approx 20mm for a longer period than the gsr due to the hammer portion. I would recommend bigger batteries if you have the original 1. 3ah variety for a masonary drill, i ordered a 2. 0ah to enhance my initial pair of one. 3ah’s and probably will increase a further. Now with 90% of dwelling work opportunities protected by these, may possibly consider updating historical 400w bosch hammer to sds for just about anything necessitating actual muscle mass .

I already have the non hammer versions and have identified then outstanding to use. Light fat and remarkably effective and with a first rate length charge. Truly excellent to maintain in the instrument bag as are compact, but pretty successful. I imagine this new just one will be as fantastic.

Great tiny device that packs a large punch.

Terrific to take care of and although as to be envisioned, not the most potent, it is really perfect for working with wooden and is lightweight, compact and snug to use.

Brilliant drill, tiny with oodles of electric power an demand, also the smallest hammer motion drill i have made use of.

Fantastic small tool for the lighter employment on website or in the home.

Highly effective, well balanced, and compact. Was making an attempt to come to a decision amongst cordless screwdriver or this and am extremely happy i chose this. Set alongside one another ikea bed with comprehensive cost even now still left on battery.

Got it is really dimensions this is an incredible drill. Sure it is a very little a lot more costly but what you get is a leading good quality solution, i are not able to recommend it ample.

Fantastic drill,nicely produced spot on for most employment 10/ten.

Purchased as a cellular instrument which is proved priceless – superb top quality from bosch.

The drill quite effectively built, no chuck wobble in any respect. Feels incredibly effectively well balanced and just the proper pounds. Impressive affect characteristic that drill through with relieve on my partitions even nevertheless my concrete drill bit is fairly old. Just obtained the drill so can not examination the battery stamina just however. All i can say is bosch never enable me down the moment. Everything operates and seems good.

Necessary a tiny portable drill with hammer motion and this suited my needs exactly, even drilled into brick less complicated then the mains run drill that i was earlier making use of.

I am a professional flat pack assembler and it is effective nicely.

Compact and helpful for all those restricted areas.

Certainly am incredibly pleased with it the only thing i would question is that the packet mentioned it was ten. eight volt for which i have batteries but on the drill driver it suggests it can be 12volt. Its a seriously nice little bit of kit.

    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.

    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.

  8. 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.

    I had to return the first for a replacement and returned that too for a refund. Both had the same main issue – bits wobble significantly – so significantly i would estimate the business end of a 10cm bit draws a circle around 1 – 1. That defect obviously makes it extremely difficult to drill any kind of tidy hole in just about any medium, not to mention the likelihood of breaking bits. I did try a range of bits and tried tightening the chuck varying amounts with no change in the wobble.

    I got it and used it for about two weeks. I’m not happy with it because the chuck has a slight wobble. I thought i could live with this or that this was part of the precision engineering but it has started to break my fine drill bits and no matter how carefully i place the drill bit or tightly lock it it still has wobble and keeps breaking drill bits. I’m going to have to return it or have it repaired.

    1. Its a nice drill, well balanced and comfortable to hold. While i appreciate its only a 10. 8v tool loses a star as in my experience struggles drilling holes into concrete.

  17. A brilliant drill/driver, robustly manufactured, with good battery life and power even though it runs on 10. I bought this to replace an old dewalt drill and wanted something compact for lighter drilling tasks and use as a driver, and this is more than up to the task.

    1. This small drill meets almost every specification it got. Only the drilling performance in masonry seems to be weaker than stated. Therefore i give it 4 and not 5 stars. The tool is pleasant to use and due to its small design and light weight, you can also use it over a longer period with your weak hand.

    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.

    1. Does not come with battery, had to order battery separate, not drill bits, not ready to use as i thought.

  22. Better than expected at both drilling into brick and general screwing work including furniture. The small size suggest something sluggish, but don’t be fooled. This is not designed to replace your sds for concrete, but for general jobs around the house, excellent very highly recommended.
