Love the impact, but not the drill
from Calgary, AB, Canada
Comments about Bosch Tools Bosch Kit With Drill/Impact Driver L-Boxx2:
I really love the impact wrench. Good power for it's small size. It is great for lighter automotive work. The drill is not that good in my opinion. It seems to have a poor self-protection mechanism. Under typical load at low speed, it quickly cuts power. I would expect it to cut power if under high load and the motor was prevented from spinning, but this cuts power too soon. Also, every so often, I get no power at all when I squeeze the trigger. A few pulls later and it will come back. This happens regardless of amount of use, so it is not overheating or anything like that. I tried both batteries and cofirmed the connections were clean and all looked fine, but every now and then, no power... convinced this was a bad drill. I just exchanged for another today. I took 4 screws out of a wall mount bulletin board, and then on the 5th squeeze, no power! Two or three squeezes later, back to normal. Bosch, is this normal? Is there any know issues with this drill? I'm finding this drill very inferior compared to my older model Hitachi HXP drill, which is unexpected. I've had very good experiences with Bosch tools. I don't feel that exchanging again is going to get me a better drill, so I may be resurrecting the old Hitachi. All in all, buy the impact. It's great. Maybe don't get the set as this drill doesn't seem up to par.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Solid construction, light weight, workhorse.
from Ottawa, ON, Canada
I use the impact on a daily basis and have been very impressed with the torque, speed, smoothness and responsiveness. The power is there when you need it.. The driver / hammer is great also. If you are looking to compare to the other manufacturers, one thing to keep in mind is that Bosch has the leading edge on the technology in terms of battery they won't freeze and will run properly at very cold temperatures the battery gauge is great for how much of a charge you have left. I haven't used the 1/2" chuck yet but it's a great feature to have built in.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Combo kit is awesome. The drill gets the job done, but the impact driver is amazing. Plenty of power, light and batteries last forever. Feels good in your hand and you can tell it's a quality product the moment you pick it up. Plenty of little things that they got right with this product. Even things like the case are better than my previous set from the competition. Handles on top and sides, more space inside to carry a set of bits, tape measure, etc. and that's just the case, not even the tool itself. Quickly becoming a Bosch convert.
