Powerful, brushless screwdriver and drill with a multitude of additional uses, this tool is part of the Bosch FlexiClick System with a fast change chuck interface. Firstly, there is a quick change locking hex bit holder and if you need a chuck just add the supplied FlexiClick GFA 13mm Auto-Lock chuck. There are also other accessories available separately: angle driver head with 13mm chuck and offset head for corners etc; following on soon will be the SDS+ rotary hammer head. Being brushless, this machine requires no maintenance and gives low battery drain for a long runtime.
Part of the Bosch 18V family, supplied without battery or charger. It is supplied in a Bosch L-Boxx case.

Nice piece of kitI got this one a few weeks ago.

Neat bitta kitI haven't bought this...yet. I spotted this at Toolstation - the Milwaukee M12BDDXKIT-202C. It has an offset drill/drive attachment and a right-angle chuck attachment. This all comes as a kit. The Bosch I chanced on at Axminster. Like all Bosch stuff it's a remarkably well presented tool. I managed to work out how to remove the chuck to reveal the hex driver head. It's twist and pull system - feels very solid and appears very well engineered. Problem is, where the Milwaukee has everything in the box, you have to buy the offset and right-angle attachments separately. Buying the Milwaukee is around £155 at cheapest - the Bosch plus accessories at Axminster is around £220. The Bosch is 18v whilst the Milwaukee is 12v. They are both convenience tools - useful but not essential - although I can think of situations I've encountered when an offset is bloody useful - when you angle a pilot hole and are left with an untidy c/sink or when you take a layer off the chuck surface trying to get tight to a corner. So I would buy the Bosch and the offset, but eschew the right-angle chuck - if I had the cash to spare.
