    Hi. Come here and share which new Bosch Brushless Power Tools going to be in the market.

    Bosch 18V OMT

    Per Jeff, sounds like there will be 18v brushless impact drills soon as well.

    And I think some 12v brushless tools are in the works as well.

    I am thinking we are going to get an industry wide brush less revolution.

    Have t made the brushless leap yet. What are the major benefits to the design?

    I noticed increased battery life and more power per volt. Also, you don’t need to worry about your brushes getting burnt out.

    Brushless also makes the head of the driver shorter front to back. Gives easier access in tight spaces. And in my opinion makes the whole driver balance better in the hand. Puts the weight of the head and the battery in a straight line right through the hand.

    Between Lithium-ion batteries and brushless motors there is hardly any need to hang on to corded tools. The technology is proven, they have been running them in high performance applications for years. I made the mistake of going cheap on my latest set of dill / nut driver. Should have spent a little more and just gotten the brushless.

    I haven’t bit the bullet on the brushless stuff yet but will. Christmas is coming. Extended battery life and more power have been the advertised advantages. Glad to see that’s your experience Jason. You using the 12v or 18v Milwaukee’s?

    I am still curious to see if the other benefit of ‘less repair’ (from not needing to replace brushes) holds true

    I think brushless made the tool waterproof too .

    No Kidding, I had no clue that anyone made waterproof drivers. Can’t say I have a huge need for it but when working in in climate weather there is a huge advantage.

    Wow, thanks for all the input. Just bought a 12v “brushfull” kit last year. May have to look into the 18v brushless models. Weather proofing is an outstanding idea.
    Eric, I will never let go of my Milwaukee GOD (Good Old Drill). Not sure how old it is but it is an all metal corded drill. Only problem I have ever had with it is it has too much torque sometimes. A real wrist snapper on tightening lags and bolts with sockets.

    I have that drill Brenden. I found it to be a wrist snapper drilling holes. It’s pretty much been retired, for gentler drills. Mainly cordless.

    BRENDAN. You may look for Metabo 18V Brushless

    I’ve always needed a waterproof drill for all that building-while-scuba-diving that I do 😛

    Then Brushless drill is an ideal for you.

    I saw the video of Panasonic Brushless Drill working in water before
