Bosch Compact Reciprocating Saw GSA18V-083B

Talk about a great addition to Bosch’s already great 18V lineup, the compact reciprocating saw is great.  As you can see this saw is more compact than the traditional reciprocating saws.  This makes it great as you can use this saw with one hand and have your other hand free to hold the piece3 of work you are cutting.  Also, you may notice this looks like some other compact saws on the market. Even though this is compact, don’t let that fool you as this is a beast and will keep up with anything you throw at it.  The tool...

Bosch 5″ Corded Grinder GWS13-50

When it comes to grinders, Bosch is one of the top manufacturers.  When I was a labor back in 1992, we had a ton of grinders on the jobsite and beat the heck out of them.  The one thing I can say about Bosch, is rarely will you ever see a tool fail.  These tools are design to be abused under the heaviest conditions.  That’s why we are going to take this over to Bodes place and let him use it while he builds his next box truck for tree hauling.  So for today, I just wanted to let...

Bosch 12V Impact Driver

Bosch may not have the largest 12V line on the market, but the tools they have out for the 12V line, well let’s just say they rock.  I am a huge fan of Bosch power tools, but I think they make the most comfortable 12V tools.  For me, I think it is the highest quality 12V tool you can buy.  Well, it may come as no surprise to you, but this 12V impact driver isn’t any different and Bosch didn’t disappoint.  The PS42 should be your next buy if you are looking for a 12V line.  No, they don’t...

Bosch Hammer Drill HDH183 and Drill Driver DDH183

If you have been following me for a while, you know I am a huge fan of Bosch.  In fact, people have accused me of being a Bosch fanboy.  I am not really sure how to answer that.  When a company makes great products, how can you not appreciate their products?  I have been using Bosch ever since 1991 and have never had any issues with their products.  We have been beating them up over the years and they last.  A buddy of mine leaves his drill in the bed of his truck.  Doesn’t matter if it rains or snows,...

Bosch Laser Review – Self Leveling Cross Line Laser GCL 2-160

Yes, another laser from Bosch.  One thing I can say about Bosch is that their laser division is jamming with new and innovative lasers.  I feel like we have tested every single Bosch laser they offer.  With all these lasers we have tested, they all have one common theme, quality.  All these lasers seem to be top quality with incredible accuracy, obviously, these two attributes are the most important with any laser.  Yes, there are other companies who make lasers, but in my personal opinion, no one comes close to Bosch lasers.  When we heard Bosch was releasing a...

Bosch Green Laser Review – Cross Line Laser GLL 100 G

When it comes to lasers, Bosch is hard to beat. They have been in this game for a long time and have experience with creating lasers. Now I am not saying I don’t trust other companies when it comes to lasers, but when you look at Bosch, it’s hard not to pick them as your top choice. They have a huge line of LDMs, levels, and laser. When you see a company get this involved in measurement tools, you can see they want to dominate. In order to dominate, you not only have to be innovative, but you have...

Bosch Work Light – 18V and 420 Lumens

Over the past year, it seems like every manufacturer is coming out with LED lighting solutions.  Not that I am saying this is a bad thing because we all know its great to be able to see.  All I am saying is I think it’s great seeing more and more LED lights coming to market.  Remember the old incandescent light?  They would get hot and if you drop them, you better have another bulb ready or you will be in the dark.  So speaking of LED lighting solutions, Bosch has an 18V light available.  A little over a year...

Bosch Compact Drills – 18V of Power in your Hand

Drills have come a long way over the years.  We have gone from tool-less chucks to cutting the power cord.  Batteries have increased in power and motors have become more efficient over time.  So with that said, it’s only natural that with all the technology, companies would start creating more compact drills for those who need a fair amount of power, but don’t need a ton of power that is offered with the bigger drills.  So here is the complication, they need to create a tough drill, that is compact, but not too small.  The drill has to have...
