    What exactly are you asking, and for what specific tool?

    Battery or corded - that makes a big difference on manufacturer!

    i was in a local branch last week and the bosch blue lith ion on offer looks and feels like a toy in my opinion. It may be a great bit of kit but personally i wouldnt buy it as it felt cheap

    ch427 after much deliberation i purchased the bosch drill from screwfix,
    its advertised as being lightweight hence the toy look i have been boarding out my loft and doing some masonary fixing and the drill seems fine , perhaps they dont have to weigh a ton to be of any use :!:
    cheers mark
