The new Bosch Blue GDX 18V-200 C is one powerful Impact drill that will surpass any expectations you have from a drill in this class.
The Powerful EC brushless motors produce a massive (no load) speed of 3400 rpm and a max torque of 200Nm! It also delivers a high impact rate up to 4200 rpm so it will easily drill in those massive coach bolts and tighten/loosen extremely tight nuts. The variable speed function allows you to select the speed you need from 0-1,100/2,300/3,400 rpm, to choose the best speed for the application with ease. We were impressed with this impact drill as it offers a significantly improved range of applications with the addition of the two in one impact wrench feature.
The Bosch Blue GDX 18V-200C latest feature of the 2 in 1 bit holder for all your hexagon drill bits/screw bits and also ½ inch nuts. Great for quick changes between screwing in batten screws to tightening up coach bolts or Dynabolts. There is no need for adapter bits or additional drills – this all-rounder can do it all.
We put the Bosch Blue GDX 18V-200 C through a tonne of applications and it didn’t disappoint. The comfort when using the drill across a range of applications was great and the 3-speed selector added the perfect level of control to the impact drill. It felt well weighted, and as much as we have gotten used to the addition of Bluetooth, it is a very nice extra to a tool of this purpose allowing even further control and customisation across a range of tasks.
Brand New Bosch ProCORE18V Battery Range
Let’s also take a look at what’s powering the Bosch Blue GDX 18V-200 C. The brand-new Bosch Blue ProCORE18V 4.0Ah and 8.0Ah battery range is fantastic and a big part of the performance of all new Bosch Blue 18V tools. They are Bosch Blue’s most powerful batteries yet, with the addition of their compact 4.0Ah, which is up to 39 per cent smaller than comparable batteries in its class, so they are great for drilling and screwing applications where the lighter weight is a bonus.
The ProCORE 18V batteries now also come in an 8.0Ah – the perfect balance of power and weight in a double layer – and a 12Ah for ultimate runtime applications providing power comparable to corded tools up to 1600W.
The new 8.0Ah, when compared to the GBA 18V 6.0Ah, will provide you with+30 per cent faster material removal with a grinder, +70 per cent more holes into timber with a drill and +151 per cent more holes into masonry with a rotary hammer drill. That’s a massive improvement on productivity!
The tech behind the batteries is all part of their success. The COOLPACK 2.0 technology allows the batteries to keep cool and heat is perfectly channelled to the outside, which also doubles its useful life and extends its runtime!
