Bosch IXO

Post by davemcdavidson »

I know there was an old post on here about the Bosch IXO and whether it was being discontinued. I have just read a review of it here,Bosch Ixo it sounds like it could do a good job for either assembling flat pack furniture or basic tasks where an impact driver is an overkill. I have stripped a few screw heads with the impact driver and done by hand instead. But I thought this is a nice in-between option. Does anyone have any experience of using one?

I have one and use it for assembling flat back furniture as you say. It did a good job, but not not much dlse on bigger tasks.

There are plenty of drill/drivers that will put in 80/100mm screws without resorting to an impact driver. Impact driver has its uses screwing in screws isn't one of them IMHO

I use the Bosch GSR 10.8v for flat pack stuff. I've had it about 4 years. I did have to have it replaced about a year ago but that's just because I was abusing it and too lazy to go get my 18v.

It's a brilliant wee driver.

With drill drivers so cheap and so small these days the electric screwdrivers seem like such a pointless waste of money.
