Toolstop Challenge - Bosch GBH2-24D Performance Tested

Toolstop loves to put power tools through their paces. We can't get enough of it.

Primarily we're just the same as the rest of you. When a power tool manufacturer makes a claim of "best in class", we can't help but adopt an air of skeptism. We want proof that the power tool will do what's claimed of it.

Just like you do.

That's why we gave Jonny a Bosch GBH2-24D and sent him off in search of a builder who could put the tool through it's places.

We're calling it the Toolstop Challenge.

The big idea is simple. We take a power tool. We put it into the hands of a tradesperson. And we challenge them to challenge the tool.

There's no marketing manager on hand to step in and usher us away from any potential "difficulties" the tool may have. There's no brand manager on hand to waffle on about "best in class" status.

We reckon this is the best way to show you what the power tools are capable of, while showing you their main features and any possible benefits.

First off, before we, here's the raw spec.

So, did it live up to your expectations? Or should we have pushed it a bit harder?
