Hi. Come here and share which new Bosch Brushless Power Tools going to be in the market.
Bosch 18V OMTSeptember 17, 2013 at 6:19 pm #42031
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 have some pictures of European 36V Brushless and 12V BrushlessSeptember 17, 2013 at 6:56 pm #42038
I am thinking we are going to get an industry wide brush less revolution.September 17, 2013 at 7:03 pm #42044FLAUERProMENOMONEE FALLS, WI
Have t made the brushless leap yet. What are the major benefits to the design?September 17, 2013 at 7:11 pm #42046
I noticed increased battery life and more power per volt. Also, you don’t need to worry about your brushes getting burnt out.September 17, 2013 at 7:23 pm #42051jdw1865ProDewey, OK
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.September 17, 2013 at 7:27 pm #42052PaulRobertsPro
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.September 17, 2013 at 7:43 pm #42054jkirkModeratorhalifax, nova scotia
bosch was advertising for their bruhsless stuff right on the website a while back but it never really launched.. not sure why
heres a tip, dont fart in a space suitSeptember 17, 2013 at 8:12 pm #42063
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?September 17, 2013 at 9:52 pm #42075
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 .September 18, 2013 at 6:05 am #42110September 18, 2013 at 6:27 am #42114jkirkModeratorhalifax, nova scotia
im not too sure about the waterproof thing on the bosch brushless. i know makitas are but thats because makita put extra seals on theirs.. ive seen it demonstratd in person.. the rep woiuld dunk it under water and pull hte trigger

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.September 18, 2013 at 7:20 am #42126FLAUERProMENOMONEE FALLS, WI
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.September 18, 2013 at 9:08 am #42138redwoodPro
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 BrushlessSeptember 18, 2013 at 12:21 pm #42174
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
