    My Bosch 18v GSR Professional impact driver started smoking and stopped after 9 years of hard work this week. The Combi that came with it got mistreated and lasted 4 hard years. An independent tools repairer had told me the Combi's motor was no longer obtainable. Anyone out there happy with their current Bosch models.

    I’ve just sold my 24V GBH Bosch SDS to Cash Converters for £25.
    Purchased it second hand for £150 in 2002/3.

    If they don't have one , try elsewhere , that was the first one that came up. I have repaired dozens of tools for the lads and been lucky up till now getting the parts from the net.

    Many a time I’ve thought that my combi was gonna give up, the way I was treating it but with a 20 second, no load spin and a few nice words of encouragement, it always comes back stronger! I like the kit and it serves me well THOUGH I haven’t tried any other brand extrensively.
    The 18v SDS with hammer only function is a winner.

    Got a lot of Bosch gear and very pleased with it all, owned over the past 5/6 years and haven't had any issues with any items.

    Wouldn't mind a DAB radio though!

    Most of my tools are Bosch and had very few issues. Only one that died on me was an 18v combi drill (through misuse by me though). It was one of their cheaper combis so I just bought the better quality metal chucked bare drill to replace it. My 36v SDS and corded planer are still good after 10 yrs. Day to day I use a 12v Milwaukee and 12v Bosch drill driver. I have found the Milwaukee poorer in terms of ergonomics, and that it is more prone to jamming when switching between settings. Although it does have some grunt on it. Bosch are generally very good, think their batteries are a bit overpriced and naff though.
