Differences GSR and GSB
Bosch GSR and GSB cordless drill driver differ as follows
The GSR model is a cordless drill driver
. It is suitable for working without impact on materials such as wood, metal and plastic. It is also suitable for screwing and unscrewing screws and is particularly handy, which makes it easier to work overhead or in tight places. Among the small cordless screwdrivers, the [url="https://amzn.to/3oYYQX3",name="GSR 12V-15FC",title=""] often comes off as the comparison winner. Those who like it even handier can also take a look at the [url="https://www.amazon.de/dp/B08CHDMB64?tag=produck-21",name="Bosch IXO",title=""] and [url="https://www.amazon.de/dp/B08KQJFSKG?tag=produck-21",name="Bosch GO ",title=""], which are suitable for DIYers who only use the tool infrequently and for light screwdriving or are looking for a supplement for hard-to-reach places.
The GSB model, on the other hand, is a cordless impact drill driver
, i.e. the machine exerts vibration-like impacts on the drilling material in addition to the rotary movements. This makes it easier for you to work on harder materials such as stone, concrete or tile ceramics. You can adjust the torque and the percussion drilling function via a rotating ring on the tool. The percussion drilling function allows you to work in masonry up to 10 mm, in wood with a maximum diameter of 35 mm, in steel up to 13 mm and for screw diameters up to 10 mm.
As you can see from the diameters for masonry, you should bear in mind that a cordless percussion drill is no substitute for a real hammer drill, but is well suited for simple work on stony material and in this case saves a second device. It is usually sufficient for domestic use.
Many buyers accordingly opt for the domestic use for the [url="https://www.amazon.de/dp/B07FWTKXJM?tag=monstec-21&linkCode=ogi&th=1&psc=1&language=de_DE",name="GSB 18V-21",title=""] (soft: 21Nm / hard: 51Nm) or a little stronger [url="https://www.amazon.de/dp/B07XBRKX5Y?tag=monstec-21&linkCode=ogi&th=1&psc=1&language=de_DE",name="18V-55",title=""] (28 / 55Nm) resp. 18V-85C (47 / 85Nm)
as an absolute all-rounder. The high level of satisfaction with the GSB 18V-21 on Amazon with 4.8 stars from over 6000 reviews shows that you can already master most challenges in everyday life with the small model, even hard concrete. Those who want to save time and regularly use their cordless impact drill for hard concrete or reinforced concrete should rather go for the [url="https://www.amazon.de/dp/B01N2V898X?tag=produck-21",name="GSB-18V-85C",title=""] or even the [url="https://www.amazon.de/dp/B07DFRWFCR?tag=produck-21",name="GSB 18V-110C",title=""]. On the other hand, those planning larger projects (house renovation) or daily use often tend towards the Bosch Professional GSR 12V-15 as a lightweight tool and combine it with a GBH hammer drill as a solo version
, e.g. the [url="https://www.amazon.de/dp/B07WGQ8PYC?tag=monstec-21&linkCode=ogi&th=1&psc=1&language=de_DE",name="GBH 2-28 F",title=""]. Ultimately, it is also important not only to have the right tool, but also to use a good and suitable drill head for the material in question.
All models are available in various combinations
from Amazon. Packages that include the charger and batteries are usually worthwhile compared to the solo device. In addition, the devices are often on offer at Amazon. So a regular look at the pages is worthwhile ? .
