    Okay, I know I posted on this in the NAINA section, but I am curious to hear what you guys think of this concept:

    http://toolguyd.com/bosch-18v-flexiclick-modular-drill-driver-system/

    It is really just an imitation of the cxs but is brushless, 18v, and has the rotary SDS attachment…

    PS – any chance of me wanting the festool cxs (or forthcoming TXS) is basically out the window. I know the 18v will be larger and heavier than either of those, but it is brushless and has the rotary (SDS plus) function. Pretty sweet.

    Now, if they could do it in a 12v version as well… ­čÖé

    Honestly I’m not super enthused with the options, the SDS chuck is interesting and a nice way to chuck up those bits but I don’t think the drill itself would have enough butt weight to do it much good. What I would have liked to see is an auto-feed attachment, kinda like how they make it with a corded drill.

    That would be really interesting to see as well. I approve!

    I agree looks like a take off from festool . But looks to be a good kit for someone who has nothin . One tool can do more with it then have expensive line up of tools .

    Always willing to learn .

    While it’s an interesting concept, I find it gimmicky. This multi purpose kind of tool reminds me othe Black and Decker matrix tool that you can swap a jigsaw/drill/ circular saw onto the same handle.

    Doesn’t Ridged have one of these. Been out for a couple of years. Think Dirty has one.

    Not for me i have found too many of these type tools lose something in the conversions and tend to fail much quicker.

    I think that a lot of us like the concept, but until it is available here, I will reserve judgement.

    I definitely like the concept. I thought Rigid had something similar?

    Auto feed attachment would be nice. And as I said in the other thread if it would fit on the socket ready (or at least on a new socket ready)

    And they have to be better then the festool quality (which I read is quite good)

    I think Ridgid did or does have something like it. I wasnt impressed but for some reason felt different looking at the Bosch. Im sure they made notable improvements to anything similar. It looks promising.

    John S you never surprise me with the new cool tools you find.

    I looked at the Black and Decker matrix tool. It seems to be a good concept, but I am curious how obsolete it will become and how quickly.

    It’s a niche market I am guessing but the festool guys seem to love theirs. I think they have been around for some time.

    I think I would be good for someone doing light maintenance.

    I too think it is gimmicky but interesting.

    As I was reading the article I was thinking it should have been for the 12v system instead. Until I saw the SDS head. Now it makes sense why it was 18v.

    I think the offset head would be the most useful. How many times have you tried to drive or drill close to a wall and wish you could get closer. Or had to bust out the manual screwdriver.

    I am not a pro. But I play one at home.

    some of that stuff i can see workng like the right angle.. but the offset doesnt make sense.. cordless hammer drills and sds dont have the power of a actual hammer drill so you just end up spinning your wheels not drilling in my expereince..

    good idea though

    heres a tip, dont fart in a space suit

    When/where can I buy the bare brushless kit? Will it work with all the American batteries/stuff?

    I don’t want to knock a new product because ifs foreign to me, so I feel like I should clarify my comment above. When I said it seems gimmicky…more to the point is that I think it’s too good to be true. ( think FlexSeal…) Personally, I would rather have 5 tools that perform flawlessly than one that does all of those things adequately. On the other hand, it is a Bosch, so it should be above average quality if not great.

    If the attachments are built solid and they lock on solid but come off easy this could be very useful. If you could leave the screw bit in the hex shank and snap on the drill chuck that would be very useful when pre-drilling and driving screws. I didn’t see if it had an impact function or just a driver.
