  1. It looks like Bosch is outfitting their new drills with metal chucks now. The model number for this is the DDS181A-02. If you are familiar with Bosch, you know that there is a DDS181 already (with a plastic chuck). I can only assume that the same modifications will be made to the Brushless model which is currently the DDS182. Sadly it does't look like the new Brute model is out yet but I can assume it will come later this year. Can't wait to get my hands on this http://www.amazon.com/Bosch-DDS181A-02-Compact-SlimPack-Batteries/dp/B01CQP9QBA/ref=sr_1_8?ie=UTF8&qid=1461371945&sr=8-8&keywords=bosch+drill
  2. Specs: 0-600/0-1900 rpm 1/2 inch chuck size 3.7 pounds Length of 0.56 Height of 0.8 (it be tiny ) I think the most important spec that I can see is that sticker that says brushless (woot) I converted most of these measurements into Imperial standards but if you want to see them for yourself, here you go. http://www.bosch-professional.com/gb/en/gsr-18-v-ec-39071-ocs-p/
  3. Ladies and Gentlemen, keep your wallets open because we have a new contender for 2016! I sure am excited for this one
  4. I love Bosch but they need a compact drills with a full metal chuck. I got nothing wrong the the plastic sleeve but a metal one just makes it feel more sturdy and because of that, I wouldn't mind a few extra ounces. It would be interesting to see a drill that could give the Dewalt DCD790 a run for its money . Also, welcome to the forum man!
  5. All the suggestions are great and it has really lengthened my list of possibilities and the personal insight is great! The next step is to decide what platform to invest in. From what I've seen so far, the best option for the time being are Bosch, Dewalt, Ryobi, Makita, Milwaukee, and Rigid (since those are the ones being recommended). If I don't go through with going with a festool (likely as of this point), which one of these platforms should I start with?
  6. Thanks for all the super great suggestions guys but just wondering if anyone has experience with the Metabo drills. I've heard things like the clutch activation issue but to me, it seems more like something that could be worked around upon learning how to use the drill masterfully. I'd just like to know how people that perhaps own or have great knowledge about these drills feel. I'm very willing to expand my list of possible drills if you guys have more suggestions. Thanks!

  8. Hey guys I'm new to this forum and I would just like some insight from people who have or know about drills. I'm looking into something for basic around the house maintenance. I'm not gonna be doing anything major just simple things like driving. I'm looking into something like the Festool CXS and maybe a Metabo but I'd like to hear what people that actually have these tools think of them. All suggestions are welcomed and I hope to talk to you all soon (if there is a certain thread I should look at or if this was talked about already, the redirection is welcomed)
