Bosch IXO IV
Advantages: small, very easy to use, nicely presented
Disadvantages: some would say its a little expensive and really its for light work
Me and my partner i recently bought our first home and we have millions of diy jobs to do so the more tools you have the quicker you can get stuff done and this little screwdriver is probably the most used.
When we bought our bosch cordless screw driver it came in a fancy metal tin rather then a drap card box which was a change from the normal tools you get from the diy shop. i seem to remember that it retailed at 29.99 on offer which we thought was a good price and as we had 20% store discount to come off that aswell we got a good deal
when we got it home and took it out of the tin it came with a pack of different types of heads and a charger. it had foam padding in the box and the instruction book aswell. but to tell you the truth it really doesnt need any instructions its so simple to use
we pluged it in and sat the screwdriver on the charge stand - no need to faff with cables or wires which is great . I think your meant let it chrage for 12 hours maybe but we needed to use it fairly quickly so i think it was only on charge a few hours
quailty - the quailty it really good it gets chucked about, chucked in the tool box left in the mess that all diy projects make and its never broken this is the same with the charger. The screwdriver its really compact and u can get a good grip of the handle which makes you feel like you have alot more control. its quite weighty without being heavy too.
Good points - theres lots with this product so here goes - its small, its well presented, its never broken, its easy to use, doesnt take long to charge, has extra screw head ends, it has a light on it to see in dark corners, it has forward and reverse motions very handy
Bad points - ok so theres always some bad points to everything you and with the screwdriver its the extra ends you get (flat, cross, star etc) do round off after a while and to be fair to bosch its standard problem across all diy products not just this one also this item its great for flat packs and light work (it didnt like it when i was trying to undo a screw caked in paint on a door hinge) but to be fair we had to get a crowbar to get it off but still its a little bit of a light weight
over all its a very good product and a really good idea it made super light work of putting our kitchen together and its used all the time for no end of jobs i would recomend this to anyone thats has trouble with there hand or just wants to make a job that little bit quicker
Summary: great little tool perfect for all those flat packs. great for people with dexterity issues
