Warranty says one year but if you sign up for Provantage you can extend the warranty to 3 years. I just found this out when my cordless hammer drill that I bought two years ago failed after trying to drill 25 1/2" holes in concrete.

Have this same drill. Have had it for a few years. No complaints. Ive been trying to find the accompanying impact drill for a price like this but no luck yet.

I've noticed my cordless bosch 18v hammer drill not that great at drilling anymore as well. It will work, but put a lot of pressure on it (push to make it drill) and it makes a "ehhhhhhhh" almost grinding noise and won't drill (spin) anymore until pressure is taken off. Or like the clutch is weak (example: screw in long screws or drill a hole with holesaw). Don't think I'll be buying that hammer drill again since it cost $290 (came with impact driver and 2x3.0 batteries, so hammer drill prob worth $125 of that). I never really got to use the hammer drill function much either, though I guess we did drill 20 holes last fall into concrete (then used impact driver to put screws in). Probably get corded hammer drill, though I'm collecting a complete Bosch 18v lineup.

Yeah when I took it to the repair centre they said that if the clutch goes it's cheaper to just replace the drill. Did you check the 1-2 speed position switch? If it's between the two positions the clutch will not engage. The compact cordless ones, including the brushless, are entry level, so I guess we can't expect too much from them.

I ended up finishing the job with a friend's corded hammer drill. The cordless one can handle drilling holes for tapcons and that's about it.

Thanks for info.
"If it's between the two positions the clutch will not engage." Are you saying that is a way to 'cheat' or bypass the broken clutch and still get it to work? :D

Thanks for pointing that out. I thought my clutch died, but yes, you were right. It was just the speed switch.

;)
