This cordless combi is tougher, stronger, lighter and more powerful than its predecessors, and incorporates many improved features. This is the first Bosch cordless combi drill of its class to have brushless motor technology. The EC brushless technology makes the tool's compact design possible. EC brushless motors are maintenance-free, producing more power and with increased battery runtime. The GSB 18 VE-EC is real deal for professionals working in the woodworking industry, electricians, plumbers and heating installers. The GSB 15 VE-EC can produce a maximum torque of up to 75Nm. Control comes from a precision coupling with an electronic control system. It detects when the coupling is overloaded and stops the motor in order to avoid over-tightening when fastening screws. This precision clutch control ensures exact screwdriving depth control. An added result is less noise and vibration, and reduced wear and tear both on the drill itself and on the screwdriver bit. The anti-kickback function gives you full control, even for the toughest screwdriving and drilling jobs. An integrated sensor detects sudden tool jams shuts down the motor within a fraction of a second. This prevents an unexpected kickback of the tool and reduces the risk of injury. A SoftGrip handle has a grooved structure, making it easier and more comfortable to hold, when working overhead or in tight, hard-to-reach spaces. This is a body only tool, you can utilise batteries from any other Bosch 18V Li-ion tool. Bosch Li-Ion battery technology is premium quality and provides the longest possible battery life and runtime. Supplied without batteries, includes an L-Boxx.

OutstandingI've had a few bosch professional drill/drivers and combidrills now, but one fault they all shared was bosch never could master a decent chuck...... Untill now, the chuck on this drill is nails yet has a smooth action perfect but also The drill is solid, shorter than its predecessor and has unbelievable amounts of torque, it will send a 150mm frame fixing screw in second gear into solid wood in 3 seconds. Still high bosch quality at a reasonable price, in no way will you be disappointed with this item.
