"had this since they come out and its the best there is, batterys last forever and hold charge very very well! tonnes of power. I use 30mm masonary bit straight off no probs, can go on kangooing a whole channel up wall for built in shower. Built well and quality. This is something worth paying the extra for 100%"

Excellent piece of kit
1 Jun 2009
By THEMAN
, Surrey
"Have had one for about 3 years now and it has been well used. It has chisseled off wall tiles, floor tiles and chanelled in walls. I regularly use it with a diamond core set and have drilled 5 1/2" (127mm) holes through concrete block, roof tiles and brick. The ordinary sds drilling is much better than a 2Kg mains machine and although a little heavy the side handle is good and can be put at any angle you want..good in confined spaces"

excellent tool

"Have had mine for 2 years now and have never had any problems at all ( Larger masonary drills do tend to jam at times but apart from that no worries. 2 xLi-ion batteries are enough when you consider you can charge a battery for 5 minutes just to drill a few holes when its flat (no memory so no ruining batteries). Most of all its got rotostop so is brilliant for chasing and chiselling. Spend the extra quids on this and you wont be dissapointed."

A pleasure to use
20 May 2008
By Hmmm
, Bolton
"This is one of those tools that is simply a pleasure to use because it does what it was designed to with ease. They claim that this tool can match a 2kg corded equivalent - they're not exaggerating!
This will drill your wall plugs holes in literally 1-3seconds, and can even handle core drilling up to 68mm diameter holes. I've used it to drill holes for bath/shower waste pipes, and thought it would struggle, but it didn't.
As a plumber I have to work in areas where there frequently isn't a nearby plug, therefore cordless items are all the more useful to me, and of all the cordless tools I've bought this has definitely proved itself to be the most useful.
Battery life is good, but don't think that it'll last for ages just because it's 36v. However it definitely lasts longer than those with lower voltage batteries.
If you register the product on-line you can get a 3 year warranty (takes about 5mins), which is very reassuring.
This is very expensive, but if you can afford it and if having a cordless tool is more than just a nicety for you - then get it. You won't be disappointed."

like a hot knife thru butter!

"Got this beast 2 months ago. It will drill through engineering bricks in around 10 secs. I got the version with 2.6ah batt's and the quick change chuck. Battery power a little less than I expected but will not leave you high and dry half way through a job. Gave 4 stars for reliability as only had 2 months, no probs so far. Solid build, 3 year guarantee, excellent performer! All for 470 squid!"

Good but prefer 24v Bosch
16 Sep 2008
By clive369
, Windsor
"I've just sold the 2.0Ah VF-LI version . Why? Well, the drill IS very good. Very well made and very capable. However, at 4.3kg it's very heavy which is OK for the odd hole but tiring for prolonged use, especially above your head. Also, and this is the main reason, the batteries are no where near large enough - they simply don't hold enough juice. 2.0Ah isn't nearly enough for a drill delivering as much power as this. I'd be interested to try the newer 2.6Ah Li-On which may be better. Given price + weight issues I'd recommend the 24v machine with 2.6Ah Ni-MH cells."
