Bosch Blue 18V Brushless 3 Piece 2x 3.0ah Combo Kit $230 @ Bunnings


Similar to the other deal posted here: https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/534500

But this one is much better value in my opinion, especially if you use the tools more than a couple of times a year to hang a picture. The difference between brushed and brushless in very noticeable in terms of power (I can't speak for this brand, but definitely in others I've used).
Plus you get a work light with it, that seems to be of reasonable quality.

Don't forget the free battery that you may potentially be eligble for: https://www.boschbluecrew.com.au/Promotions

This Bosch Blue Kit includes:

1 X 18V Brushless Hammer Drill GSB 18V-60 C
1 X 18V Brushless Impact Driver GDR 18V-EC
1 X 18V Worklight GLI VariLED (420 Lumen)
2 X 18V GBA 3.0Ah Batteries

  • I've had a good look at the Bosch website, the above $230 kit (0615990J6N) does not qualify for the promotion 0615990J6Y
    Please correct me if I'm wrong

  • I just picked this kit up from Bunnings. I think its a great deal, I am glad I didnt buy the Dewalt for over $300 last week.

    I got one of the last ones in stock. There was another guy leaving with one as I arrived and a staff member took one right in front of me for a click and collect order.

    Presented very nicely and looks like pretty good quality.

  • Yes OP this is a great deal and I upgraded from an earlier Bosch 18V-LI brushless kit to brushless last year with the https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/457984, although that one had a beefier hammer drill - the GSB 18V-85 C which really does replace corded (except for mid/large masonry - I use a corded mini-SDS drill). The brushless GDX/GDR 18V-EC impact driver rocks and is a big improvement on the brushless driver. The driver in this kit is the GDR which doesn't have the combo hex/1/2 socket driver but you can use something like this when you need to drive a socket https://www.bunnings.com.au/irwin-impact-pro-performance-3-p..., and in someways that is better as you can get the GDR in places where the longer GDX won't go.

    Once you have your serial numbers don't forget to use the site https://webapp.bosch.de/warranty/locale.do?localeCode=en_AU to get your 6yr warranty certificates.

  • Bought 1. Good value. Thanks.

  • What a tool.

  • Just in time for mothers day

  • Got one from the earlier thread but thanks anyway!

  • To bad there is no redemtion offer. Usually they have.

  • This is a great combo deal. I bought the light alone last year for $60 and whilst the batteries have been superceded, they have been durable and resisted a lot of drops.
    I can definitely recommend it. It's almost worth it if you needed two new batteries alone!

  • http://projectsuit.com/bunnings_checker.php?store=6428&item=...

    That site is usually accurate with stock but doesn’t show much stock for this item.

  • Tossing up between this and the other deal, b the time i decide they'll all be gone probably. Both sets are $169 off, so i guess you are paying the full price for the light and a bit extra for brushless. The extra $80 seems worth it if you have any use for the light imo.

    • Save ur money if you need drills for DIY only ocassionally and get the other deal.

      • If you use it for 4 hours a year or more, I would definitely get the other set. It would then cost you $2/h over two years.
        Plus you get a work light that may make some jobs faster.

        • Doing a reno of my investment property so they will get a work out, and light very handy.

          • @JamesLucas: You're going to be spending thousands of dollars (or more) renovating where you'll be using the tools for hours. And your purchase would be tax deductible.
            Whether to spend the extra $80 it not, a very tough decision indeed! ;)

            Coming from a fellow property investor and renovator, I honestly have no idea why you're even debating it.

            • @spludgey: You can claim personal tools used for a reno? This is news to me, might get a new set of festools

                • @spludgey: I'm not sure it's not B&W, depending on how you interpret "help earn your income" to a tradie it applies, but if your occupation is scientist and that's what your getting taxed on I don't think so

                  • @Dezeption: I've done it before, but then I'm not a scientist, but an engineer.
                    It's my interpretation that you can. If you can't and you get audited, you would just have to pay it back, no fine, as you have a reasonable defence.

                  • @Dezeption: I avoided a tax return for years, trying to ensure I claim every last thing I can, after selling mine.

                    3 or 4 times I dredged it back up with my accountant (40yrs exp).
                    She grew more frustrated each time, bewildered how I thought any of these things would qualify. I mentioned every thought & angle. I still think it's within reason, and not taking the piss.

                    She highlighted that I'd already made money from negative gearing. And that I can't also get the government to offset my attempt to sell for more.

                    She green lit tools, as I'm a tradie… But NOTHING else.

                    She printed a lump of paperwork, saying here it is, somewhere in this, if you don't believe me.

          • @JamesLucas: @JamesLucas: In all honesty if you are going to be using the tools a lot go for Milwaukee tools. They cost more though are well worth it if you will be using it a lot.

  • is this bosch's best drill and best impact?

  • Can these batteries be used in other Bosch lawn mowers?



  • What should I buy to use it 2 or three times at year? Any suggestion?

    • The other one. Unless you really want the light.

    • That amount of use you might be better with the cheaper one

    • just remember Power is Key…
      you may only use a few times in a year, but if it does not have the power you need, then your toast.
      I haven't looked at the power specs of these, but its just a thought.

      Ive got the Ozito 5 piece kit from when it was 199, so obviously no comparison to these.
      SO while they are great for home use etc, they are not proper DIY due to lack of power and they can cut out easily.

      I also have a corded B&D 400w hammer drill and an AEG 750w hammer drill with a nice 4m cord..

      Even the AEG only just scrapped by while fixing rails to the posts of a retaining wall.
      If I had of gone to the bigger (larger) size, power would be a non issue, but size then becomes the drama when there isn't much room.

      • Are you saying this is better than the other one (it should be right as if has more power)

        Or don't get this and get a proper corded one

        (I know it depends on what it's being used for)

        • I do not know which would be better, havent looked at either. There is a place for cord and cordless, which is why i have both, cordless is just so handy. Now that I've had the Ozito pack for a while, if i had the time again, i would check the specs, there can be quite a variance, may have made me spend more on a more trade like brand rather tha diy.

  • I need to drill a hole on the floor to get a CAT6 cable down to basement. Would this drill work with a right drill bit? I saw on another day an electrician did with his Bosch so I just wonder

    • What's the floor made from? If concrete, I wouldn't think so, you'd want a rotary SDS drill for that. If it's wood, sure!

    • That won't look so good unless it's within the wall you drilling down through…. Have yoh considered place the wall plate against a external wall. There you won't need tk drill can just get some yellow tounge and feed it through

      • ^ this.

        Drilling holes through the floor is not the solution.

        On another note, checkout powerline ethernet.

  • Brilliant deal mate. Snagged the last one in Rydalmere. Thanks!

  • Any good deals about for a rotary hammer drill, something that could do 20mm holes in concrete? Cheers

  • panic bought one

    this is good for the covid right?

  • Just picked one up. (There are 2 left at Smithfield)
    Was going to get the $150 but already have an old brushed Bosch so this will be an upgrade.
    With plenty of time now, I might get motivated to finish off that arcade build.

  • thanks. just ordered. will be a nice upgrade from my fatmax which i only have one battery for.

  • My heart says Bosch but my wallet says ozito :(

    • Ozito brushed are fairly rubbish, but I really like my brushless ozito tools. Really good value for money when ALDI have them on special and Bunnings price matches.

      • ozito brushless are great for the money …. but if you need bigger skin selection its makita (I have makita and ozitobrushless) , bosch or dewalt.

        • Yes, ozito seems to have one or maybe two of each type of tool, whereas Makita has very nuanced tools, particularly drills and drivers. Comes with a price tag a few times that of ozito though.

  • CnC'ed one from Delacombe. Perfect timing for me. Thanks op!

  • Anyone know if the hammer drill is better than the Ryobi One+ R18PDBL-0 hammer drill? Have it and just wondering if it's worth getting this deal.
