    Yeah the brushless is better for sure and this has the newer NAINA 2.5 ah batteries as well. I thought about using a 4ah batt but it would take away the compact size I love.

    Oh you have the 2.5Ah batteries too. I take it the size is comparable to our 12V battery with a bit more capacity. Wonder why Bosch does not release them here?

    Correct..almost identical in size to the 2ah batts. Like everything NAINA…we seem to never get a straight answer from anyone that really knows…all speculation on our part.

    Similar to the 6ah 18v… Even though it is listed, nobody sells it

    Im beginning to realize WE are the experts on what works and where to buy for Bosch- we get rewarded with the toys, and Bosch press releases tell the public to come here for more info

    @bethepro I’m starting to think it would help if we got releases posted here as soon as they can be publicly available. We could ask questions and it would align with press releases telling people to come here for more info. Might even be a good way to pick up some new members.

    That does sound like a good battery,, I like to call that size battery pellet batteries.

    That is a great idea, although the press releases from Bosch are infrequent they do give great overview of technical information. I will try to get PR’s as posts on BTP in the future. But when it comes to actually using the tools, you (the members of this forum) are the real experts.

    Thank you BTP, maybe a sticky thread would help so they will all be in one place.

    This would be really helpful to see a sticky thread from Bosch including a heads up when these tools become available here.

    Has anyone tried to fasten a screw into wood using this screwgun ?

    Yes…me..the first time I used it. It did fine.

    Wow, am I late to this thread. I love it Andrew, though I’m kind of used to the Dura Spin collated screws. I get finger cuts whenever I use straight drywall screws.

    That’s why they have the MA55 adapter Mark, for guys who prefer collated. It works with this screwgun, the 18v, amd the 110v models.

    Never really dawned on me, but I guess we are. Never thought I’d enjoy so much being a ‘lab rat’ so to speak.

    I love the pellet size batteries too. The ones I use real 2.0Ah.

    dawned

    What kind of wood did you drive the screw in ? Softwood or Hardwood ? I am just wondering how much torque this screwdriver has.

    #391403

    @rylim
    I secured two pieces of Type X drywall onto an I joist just fine, the depth stop kicked in before I ran out of torque.

    Its definitely not torquey like a driver or drill but it’ll surprise you with a twist if you use it on something that’s got the screw bottomed out or stuck. It’ll do that well enough that the camming action on a phillips bit will bump the screwgun first and that’ll disengage the clutch before you realize it.

    That’s what I figured based on Andrews comments about it.

    There’s a lot of 12 voltish tools nowadays that can do the majority of tasks needed for tasks now whereas years ago this caliber of tool would have to frequently be supplemented by having a big brother within reach.

    So nice using a 12V versus an 18V for long durations and also for practicality. Those 12V drivers don’t need hooks or be carried in seperate containers necessarily. I tuck mine in my BlakLader pants pockets quote frequently movin around.

    #391408

    Since I was curious too:

    On a 2×3 cutoff with a 2″ #8 drywall screw without the depth limiter or any predrilling. It was a pretty dry piece.

    At first, I thought it wouldn’t have a good torque as it doesn’t have a sophisticated gear box. It seems like I have a wrong assumption on it.

    It is slightly underpowered when driving 1-5/8″ into yellow pine

    @reflector @overanalyze
    So how are your guns holding up? Are you using it a lot?
    Did you regret the purchase or still happy with it?

    Just asking because I’m thinking about to buy one.
    Because how it looks like we won’t get that gun in NA.
    Andrew you said in the other thread that the gun is a bit under powered.
    Do you still think that way or has it changed? 😀
