Cordless tools are some of the greatest inventions ever for the handyman, home owner, or the maintenance or construction professional.  Without the need for a cord hanging around their neck, an operator can feel free to roam anywhere a tool is needed to fasten, saw, rip, drive, drill, or drill.  Bosch cordless tools have progressively taken cordless tools to higher levels with improvements like more power, more durability, advanced electronics, reduced size and weight, and increased efficiency.

When you buy one of the many Bosch cordless tools, you know you will be getting a tough, reliable precision tool designed for the demands of constant use in punishing environments and with the features you need to get your job done faster, with less fatigue, and better results.

Bosch cordless tools can be purchased in three ways.  You can buy each tool as a “bare” tool by itself, you can buy it in a kit that includes the batteries, charger, and sometimes a case, or you can buy them in a combo kit with one or more other tools, a case, and sometimes other handy accessories.

Bosch Cordless Tools Bosch CLPK224-181 Li-Ion Cordless 2-Tool Combo KitWe recommend that you always buy Bosch tools, if possible, in a combo kit because of the value it provides.  Combo kits almost always save you money over buying bare tools alone and often come with additional accessories that increase the value of the combo kit.

If you decide that a combo kit is the way to go, which one should you buy.  Of course, a Bosch combo kit needs to include the Bosch power tools you need for your particular job, task, or operation.  What are some of the popular Bosch combo kits tool mixes that are available as a combo kit?  First, the most popular combo kits by far are the two-tool kits.  They offer additional value over single toolkits and they are less expensive than kits with more tools.

Bosch Cordless Tools Bosch CLPK234-181 18V Li-Ion Cordless 2-Tool Combo KitBy far the most popular Bosch cordless tools combo kits include one of their potent drill/drivers or hammer drill drivers with a powerful Bosch impact driver.

What about battery power?  When it comes to Bosch drill/drivers and impact drivers, you have a choice between 12V and 18V models.  The 18V models are more powerful, but the 12V models typically weigh less and are less expensive.  As battery technology evolves, the higher voltage models will shed weight, but for now, if you’re planning to do a lot of overhead work that doesn’t require the extra power of an 18V tool, or your tasks keep you holding the tool for long periods, you might choose a lighter, 12V combo kit.

 

 

When you buy Bosch tools you get an industry-leading superior service plan that includes 3 years of tool coverage, 2 years of battery coverage, and one easy number to call to reach their service team.

 

Take a look at our choices of the top-rated drill/driver and impact driver Bosch combo kits and see if one of them is the best combo kit for your needs!
