I bought this cordless drill for my father for Christmas about two years ago. I think it’s the best cordless drill he ever had before. Almost every time I see him he talks to me about how nice is his Bosch drill and that I should buy one for myself! haha!

He told me that the battery charges very fast, always about 15 minutes to get a full charge. This is quite very impressive. He likes the chuck except a little problem when he has to use on reverse. Sometimes it can loosen while in reverse. But other than this, it’s a very good tool for him.

I’ve used it a few times myself and he’s right about how nice it is. Probably not a contractor grade tool, but definitely not far from it.

We liked the carrying bag though…. most of the time, we hate them, but this one is nicely done and useful. Easy to carry around and to store the tool, batteries and charger in it. It’s former like a hard case, it’s like half way between a hard case and a bag.

This said, Bosch ranks last when you compare it to DeWALT, Makita and Milwaukee. But it’s definitely better than Black & Decker and other generic brands.

Great tool for the price. I’ve seen it as low as $99.99 on special at my local hardware store. But usually, you can find it around 120$. Don’t buy this one at regular price, which is around 200$.

You have to know that Bosch has a great Customer Service and they are always available to answer your concerns or questions. You can call them at this number: 1-877-267-2499.

You won’t be disappointed if you buy this cordless drill, I can assure you this! You’ll be able to get your job done very easily.
