      Bosch those concrete posts with ease

      It gives you 800 watts of power, or up to 900 rpms, and is about 380mm long, from handle end to chuck, (no bits in), and about 210mm high at both the back and front handle, and about 80mm wide, weighing in at almost 3kg.
      It had two handles, the one at the rear having the trigger on is, giving you the control and also allowing you to get your body weight behind the power, which helps the bit do it's job sometimes. Then there's the front handle which gives you that little extra stability when it comes to those really stubborn concrete blocks. This front handle can be used anywhere around the drills circumference, so there's no worries for left or right handers.
      It's needs a chuck key in order to open and lock the chuck, which holds the drill bits

      It's not only great for power drilling, it also has something call a rotation stop, which means that it can be used for chiselling too, for such things as chiselling plaster off the walls, as long as you have the right drill bit that is.
      Unlike many corded power drills this one has a reverse function, using the button at the handle of the tool, push down for forward and up for reverse.
      There's a dial on side nearer the front which gives you a selection of speeds, including the hammer function, so there's nothing this one can't blast through.
      Also near the front there is a depth gauge holder, which means that it is a small hole that allows you to slide a measuring rod through it, locking it on place, to give you the exact depth you want to drill.
      The noise coming from this drill is pretty good, for the power, but once you start drilling into things the noise will get worse as the motor does what it is supposed to do.
      The vents do a cracking job in keeping the motor cool and you don't feel much heat on your hands.

      This drill has the power of the corded drills yet the versatility of the cordless drills...
      And the price..? about £120 or so, which is a good price for what you get.
