Bosch GSB 18-2-LI L-Boxx 18V 3.0Ah Li-Ion Cordless Combi Drill with L-Boxx
The 4 years reliable service I received from my previous 18v Bosch combi induced me to replace it with this detritus. It has had hardly any usage and certainly nothing like the abuse I gave to its predecessor and the gearbox has failed. This kind of failure costs me money as I rely on my tools to perform as the manufacturers promise they will. If YOU are professional then buy something else.

Broken from the get-go
I originally purchased the "GSB 18V-LI" "brushless", but swapped it for this model "GSB 18-2-LI" when I discovered that the former was not actually brushless and the latter came with a free spare battery.
To my dismay, the -2- in the model number is critical here!
A quick "hold the chuck firmly and pull the trigger" test made a horrible squeal from the gearbox and next to no torque. (Yes, it was in drill mode!).
The staff at the local screwfix counter were excellent and polite despite me being in and out over 3 days to swap and refund.
I will write a review for the GSB 18V-LI separately, but so far it is looking much better built than the GSB 18-2-LI, despite not living up to its brushless advertisement.

Bought 5 of these for my Joiners when free battery offer was on!
Joiners are over the moon with the performance of this piece of kit and I saved over Â£300 to boot!!!!!!
