Bosch GBH 36VFLI

First make sure you buy the vFli not the vli model as the F includes the changeable chuck engineered how Bosch used to! The vli model only has a SDS Plus chuck.

Now this is a flipping expensive tool not getting away from that, currently £549.97. I normally go for Makita but when I got this one they best they had was a 24v drill which I tried and wasn't up to the job. I've now had it for a little over 6 months and it's amazing. Sounds quite weedy until you realise the amount of work it's doing whilst sounding like a fart in a thunderstorm. Comes with 2 batteries, a rather large fast charger and a decent box. Handling is good, well balanced and built really well. Makita have since bought out a 36v which I've tried but I preferred the handling of the Bosch.

Highly recommended.

Hello! Unfortunately I have the first model, the one with the sds chuck. After 2 years of working with it, it`s still in a good shape. One of the battery i think it`s seem to have some problem because it doesn`t charge at 100%. Do you have any ideea if i can buy a new one?

You'll probably find one on eBay. Might be worth ringing Bosch to check the battery warranty first though.

After two years? I don`t think so. Anyway I guess it`s pretty expensive.
