Posted by Neil Bruce - August 11, 2009
This new cordless impact wrench from Bosch has recently come onto the market and boasts :
- Compactness - 7% shorter and 11% lighter than their predecessor
- Powerful - 11% more powerful
- Flexible - Choose from compact 1.3ah or full size 3ah batteries as well as body only. The batteries used are the same as those used in all Bosch 18V lithium ion tools.
This is a 1/2" square drive impact driver and has a maximum torque of 170nM, 2,800RPM speed, 3200 impacts per minute and M6-M16 bolting capacity.
The machine weighs 1.4kg with the compact battery or 1.6kg with the full size battery.
The GDS18V-LI also has features such as a bright LED job light for use in dark spaces, electronic cell protection to avoid overloading and overheating and a belt clip for convenience.
We've tested this new impact wrench and it certainly comes out way ahead of its ni-cad predecessor. It also fairs pretty well against the competition.
The GDS18V-LI is part of a range of 18 volt lithium ion tools from Bosch which includes a combi drill, drill driver, circular saw, reciprocating saw and impact driver.
