Bosch Cordless Drill UK Reviews

Bosch Cordless Drills

The Bosch brand is and has always been a very popular choice for many buyers here in the United Kingdom.

They make a full range of appliances and tools for both home and garden use. So there is no big surprise to see that they make some of the best cordless drill/drivers on the market today. Now these cordless drill/drivers are at the higher end of the price point and range between £50-100 for their best choices.

The first thing to know about Bosch drills is that they make them in two different types:

  1. Cordless Drills for Home Owners - Recognised by a distinctive Green and red colour scheme on their products
  2. Professional/ Contractor/Trade Cordless Drills - A blue colour 

The professional cordless drills can of course also be used by anyone. They are more powerful, made with durability and power in mind, and as such will be more expensive.

Our Experience with Bosch Drills in the UK

Over the years we have used a lot of Bosch tools and we know that they offer high quality products. All of their drill/drivers use Li-ion batteries and that is simply a very good thing. Cordless drills with a Lithium-Ion battery will just last you far longer, are faster to charge and hold their charge for a very long time. This is what Bosch use in all their drills.

Below we have listed the Top 10 Bosch cordless drills by those that have received the highest rating. These ratings are taken from online buyers, who have bought and used the various Bosch drills.

They have then taken the time to leave a review. At least that way, you know that it is based on the opinions of a whole range of buyers, and not just the opinion of one or two people.
