    its the fancy one with the red bit on the end too. Has been cheaper deals but still pretty good price - love mine.

    Can screw anything into anything.

    •  

      Can this drill and screw to brick?

      •  

        Also interested, not really sure how to drill into brick. My blue Bosch can't haha, it's the 'BOSCH 12V 2.0AH DRILL DRIVER KIT 0615990L63'

          Wrong drill for the purpose. You need a hammer or rotary drill, not a drill driver. I wouldn't even expect that to drill thru any sort of serious steel, mostly wood.
          Hammer drill is fine for brick, if you're drilling concrete or doing a full time masonry then I'd recommend rotary for sure.

        Impact drivers are more suitable for timber applications.

        What you're after is a hammer drill, which essentially does little hammer vibrations whilst driving into brick.

          If you are drilling into brick often, get yourself a SDS drill and a set of SDS drill bits. They will drill holes like a very hot knife through butter.

          I have six SDS drills and many drill bits, and when I put up my gate (drilling into the brick wall and concrete footing), it made my work easier. Also worked wonders drilling into the ground to secure 2.4m racks to the ground.

          •  

            @t25: I agree SDS is awesome, but six drills sounds a bit over the top! Different one for every day of the week except Sunday I guess.

            •  

              @FrugalFreddy: If I told you I got them for pennies in the dollar, it would justify it. I literally paid $80 each that a plumber had bought (Panasonic SDS drill) used less than ten times and literally gave it away with box/papers/receipt and remainder of new tool warranty because he wanted something different. These are still in current production and run north of $400 each.

              I have that many drills with seperate drill bits so go small, and slowly enlarge to get the right fit without having to swap bits out. I also have a couple of impact drivers so I can have different attachments without having to swap them around every 10 minutes.

    Pretty sure I got the similar one with the drill and two batteries from Bunnings.

    The ½" anvil is so convenient for taking wheels off and when assembling racking together. Plenty of power and not a bad size to lug around all day.

    I find my impact bit keeps getting stuck in it

    anyone else have the same ( i mean really stuck )

      That's one she hasn't said yet….

    •  

      do you have this exact model?

  •  

    Hmm pretty keen, noticed you can get the skin only for $179 on eBay with free shipping:

    Seems like a good deal.

    I’d need battery and charger though. I’m in the Dewalt ecosystem at the moment. But I have an old Bosch green drill and it’s great.

    •  

      Done, ordered! I saw that the batteries are worth $169 by themselves. Considering the skin goes for $200-300 on its own, this is a good deal.
      I noticed that there is also a GDX 18V-200 C version as well which seems to have superseded this one, hence maybe the clear out.

      •  

        I believe the C designates that it has "connectivity" so you can connect it via Bluetooth to their app to monitor the tool's performance. Otherwise they're the same spec.

        •  

          Cool, that’s just a waste of battery for me then, I got the right one. Thanks for that info 👍

          They put Bluetooth in everything now, even toothbrushes. I don’t see the point.

          •  

            @GeneralSkunk: You can fine tune a few settings to personalize the tool to your preferences but yes, I think it's a waste for most people.

    Oh no. This site was designed to save me money. But every time I log in I end up spending on something. What the hell is wrong with me.
