Missed tool shop-but-passed by Homebase full of junk tools-but- saw a 600
watt SDS Bosch hammer drill PBH2200RE- compact- fairly light- plastic looks
ok-how tough is it ie will it survive a fall 10 feet onto my concrete
solum.The brickie dropped my brand new Makita jig saw off the scaffold- just
bent the blade- which he straighened with his hammer and carried on
Is the Bosch brickie proof!.
The PBH 22000 RE is from the Bosch DIY range, all the models prefixed with
"P" are DIY. If you want a pro quality Bosch SDS drill go for a model
prefixed with a "G". The pro models will out-last most other SDS drills on
the market and are as good if not better than Makita. If you want the best
buy a Hilti and that will probably out live you.
Not really in the Makita league I'm afraid. One problem with modern Bosch
tools is they seem to overheat a bit more.
However biggest problem is servicing. Bosch service department used to be
the dog's whatsits but is now the dog's doodoos. I only buy their stuff now
when it's really outstanding - which currently only means jigsaws I think.
