Frasier's review of Bosch CSB 550 RE


“A good advert for Bosch. I wish modern Bosch tools...”

Bad Points
The rubber holder that holds the key chuck key split after about 10 years. Poor show.

General Comments
A good advert for Bosch. I wish modern Bosch tools were just as good.I've had this drill for nearly 20 years. I've abused it. There is a review here that says theirs didn't last. I've used this for tasks way over its spec since it was the cheapest drill in the Bosch range that has all the top of the range features I needed (reverse, variable speed & hammer). It drills 15-20mm in steel and any kind of masonry. It only lets me down where I can't use muscle when I resort to a DeWalt SDS which makes light work of anything but costs £350. Every year I expect this baby to burn out but it's still going. Its a very fair tool. It cost be £30 20 years ago.
