Summary: Disapointed with this drill as everytime I want to use it the batteries are flat!! Even after a couple of days. I own other Bosh tools - a screwdriver and some electric pruners which hold a charge for months on end but the drill does not. I have to use my corded drill instead.
Summary: My first (and last) cordless drill. Maybe I got a bad one but I was very disappointed with the NiCd batteries - long time to charge, don't hold the charge if unused for even a few days. Also the cost of replacements is more than getting a new drill (around £40 each). Don't bother.
Summary: I've bought 5 of these 18v drills from Amazon when upgrading from my pair of Bosch 14.4 drills. I only wanted two, but 4 have been faulty with the same problem - the chuck is jammed and just can't be unstuck. The one 18v that was OK is, well, OK.
Summary: Received the drill ok, trouble was the charger was rated at 7.2 to 14.4 volts and the battery would not fit in it anyway. Disappointed also with the speed of the drill, size of the chuck and the fact that the battery charger did not turn off when the battery was fully charged?
Summary: As it seems with all DIY grade tools they are actually being reduced in quality! Bosch DIY tools now lack the ability to tell you when your battery is fully charged. This is neccessary as overcharging any battery is a bad thing, let alone ni-cad's.
Summary: bon modèle bien connu. Mais les batteries ne sont pas les mêmes que le quasiment même modèle vendu en France ! Mais surtout, les batteries sont manifestement déjà anciennes à la vente, et ne tiennent pas la charge !
