    GCM12SD NA model to have the same options as the UK version. IE: Swivel handle and built in laser guide.

    As others have mentioned, quicker NA marketing of their UK tools.

    That’s what irks me, it’s not like a new version has to be engineered, everything is ready to go but just removed from the NA model.

    Those things,,,,Man why do you even need the say anything??? You put that with a tools and forget about selling and more.

    As I’m only invested in the Bosch 12v line, it’s even HARDER to find the rapid charger. I have one…and two of the slower version.

    I have the 5412 miter saw, and it has a laser guide. I never really pay any attention it though. It comes on automatically when the saw starts.

    The 4100 table saw. Dust management is a joke on that thing. I’m usually using it outside, so I don’t hook it to a shop-vac, and I don’t care where it goes, but the whole underside fills with sawdust, which is almost impossible to remove.

    I posted about this issue a while back, and I learned that they rolled the plastic base inwards in order to strengthen it. However, it’s open at the top, so it just collects dust. I’ve heard of some people using spray foam to fill the gap.

    That would be nice. Along with a multi battery charger.

    The grip on the 18v brushless socket ready impact is PERFECT!!! That grip should be on all of there drills and impacts.

    One handed bit insertion on all the impact drills

    bit holders on all the drills/impacts

    so far just the EC models come with the mountable bit holders right?!
    would be definitely great if they would include one for each tool.
    the impactor’s have a tiny bit storage

    Gee I see ya found another pic off the web somewhere, My brushless impact doesn’t have that. It came with another design that screws on the side, That one looks molded in. Wonder if that’s even available in the US? The drills come with the side mount too, They attach with the same mount as the belt clip. But they’re not very handy. At all!!

    My Milwaukee fast charger has 12V & 18V charging capabilities. That charger is a few years old already.

    @madman_us 25618 is that the one on the far left, not sure if that’s the number, I thought the 25618 was different

    Ok see now with real life pics we can actually learn something, And I did. Much to my surprise my socket ready impact and brushless drill do have a hole for bits back there, Just like the first two left ones in your pic. I’m not sure what you mean by a smaller version though on the 25618, I will be taking my side mount off today. It’s a pita anyway

    @Boschmanbrian
    i dont have a 25618. i know that he has one because i looked at the tool in store several times.
    items in the picture from the left:
    IDS181, IDH182, DDS181, DDS182

    @Dabbs
    i knew that my impactor has that storage in the back. and i was just not in the mood or lets call it lazy, to go in the cold garage to take a “real life picture” 😛
    so the impactors have that bit storage but not the drill/driver.
    the brushless drill/driver come nowadays with the side mounted storage (which you can see in the far left on my IDS181)

    i get you another internet picture for the bit storage version.
    because i dont own the 25618

    and i just seek for help on the internet when i down own that tool, product.
    like with the recip saw blades i showed Boschmanbrian in the other thread how they look like

    Ya can’t be lazy on here, I’ve made many trips out to my shop in the cold to take a pic LOL. My brushless drill/driver does have the built-in holder plus it must have came with the side mount too, I got it from somewhere. It’s possible it came with something else though, But I know it didn’t come with the non-brushless drill. They didn’t have them yet

    I did that at the beginning, went in the garage at night but got no response to those pictures. but i guess now i depends on who wanna see the picture 😛
    anyways; was at lowes today and guess what. the DDB181. that compact bargain drill/driver for $99 has that bit storage in the back of the handle too. like the impactors. no picture taken because my phone was dead. just google Bosch DDB181 and you will see it.

    Nice that I’m not the only dedicated one to do those kinds of things for the sake of clarity and thoroughness.

    Thumbs up!

    The 12v Vacuum would be nice if it had more suction. The switch needs to be redesigned as you continuously turn it off while using it.
