The PSB 1800 is a fantastic combi drill for general home use but if you need a little more power then you should consider the Bosch PSB 18 LI-2.
Optimum power for every task 3-in-1 system that can be used for screwdriving, drilling and impact drilling. It also features 20 torque settings for screwdriving in different materials I would highly recommend this tool as I would always advise to be equipped with middle-range products for everyday use. If you can afford and have even more use than I have go for top range. This product carries a full 3 year manufacturers warranty covering both faulty materials and faulty workmanship, it does not cover general wear and tear or damage, batteries, blades, bulbs and other consumables. In the unlikely event of a fault the item returned is subject to fair wear & tear and must not have been used beyond the scope of it's design. Please note that cordless products will normally have a shorter warranty of just 1 Year for the battery and or charger supplied.
The controls are easy to use and highly intuitive. The forward/reverse switch is coupled with a handy forward/reverse indicator at the top of the drill, so you’ll always know the direction setting. If anything, the grip is a little on the small side. I’ve got large hands, and the bottom of my palm started rubbing on the battery release button surround almost immediately. I don’t know how comfortable this will be over time, and I don’t think it would be great to use with gloves on. Supports the same batteries as the rest of the Bosch range, offering to swap batteries about with other tools in the range.
The noise rating of this cordless drill at full speed is 98 dB. Roughly equivalent to the sound levels you experience when riding a motorbike, proper hearing protection is essential. If you’re just driving in screws at low speed, the noise levels are obviously much lower. There’s plenty of control when it comes to torque settings on this cordless drill. Bosch have called it ScrewControl, but it’s the same principle. You get 20 different settings that control how much power you can put into a screw, to help save the surface of delicate materials you’re working on. Very happy that new drill is identical to my old one [except it works!], so very satisfied with offer & delivery from Tooled-Up.The overall feeling I got from this cordless drill is that it’s all a bit underwhelming. The design is unremarkable, and the grip isn’t the best. There are a couple of little features like the direction indicator that look good but don’t add to the performance. The drill isn’t very responsive, and the uninspiring drilling speed makes for slow work. Easy to use, even for the beginner, the PSB 1800LI-2 is an ideal choice for all home DIY tasks. It is also lightweight, comfortable to handle and well-powered with its dual Lithium-Ion batteries.
