[Amazon.ca] BOSCH GSB18V-490B12 18V EC Brushless 1/2 in. Hammer Drill/Driver Kit with (1) 2.0 Ah Slimpack Battery - $79.99

New all time low on this Bosch brushless drill. Ships in a few weeks but available to order as of this post. Previous ATL was $99.99.

EDIT: Deal dead for now but this item has been fluctuating (dropping) in price over the last few weeks. If you missed it, recommend putting a price alert on 3 camels and/or adding the item to your Amazon wish list and manually periodically checking. Good chance it will drop again, at least to the $99 mark.

switched from ryobi to bosch 3 years back and it's been night and day through some reno work over the years. batteries are _actually_ reliable and don't die in the cold, even after months.

If you only need a single drill as a light user, then buy this.

If you think you may need an impact driver for other tasks and use drills a moderate amount around home, the M12 due to its small size and weight but still enough power for home use.

Considering that you already have 3 Bosch batteries, may be the Bosch is a better choice for you.

I bought the Milwaukee kit because I like the M12 fuel form factor and it has more than enough power for all my uses. For drills I keep the M12 fuel, for other tools I look into a different entire line up like ridgid / dewalt etc. Again it’s heavily YMMV based on your needs and use cases.

Interesting model, I thought it was their newest budget entry level drill given it's weak power, but apparently in UK it comes in premium pack with 3x 4.0 core batteries. Confused on where in the lineup this is suppose to sit.

Weird all of a sudden it's showing up as $79.99 for me now too, so I guess deal is still on.

It's not really that weak--almost 500in*lb and 22,000bpm--that's fairly similar to say Ryobi's compact HP hammer and Ridgid's SubCompact hammer drils.

Since it hasn't got a handle it's clearly not meant for heavy duty use, but I'm not that familiar with Bosch's lineup or what goes above/below it. But for $80 seems a great deal for a hammer drill kit in this class.

I'd definitely buy this Bosch at this price--drill will be better than the M12 drill although not as compact. Plus if you have more Bosch batteries, it's a no brainer. You'll have to get an impact driver separately if you want one of those too, of course; but pretty sure you'll be under the M12 kit price.

Only reason to go M12 would be if you want to get into more M12 stuff; otherwise, I'd stick with the Bosch 18V.

I'm pretty sure this is the weakest brushless they have. Their top model has almost three times the torque.

But yeah, for the price, who cares lol.
