A built-in LED light illuminates the workspace for optimal visibility.

Great tools
After using my boss's DeWalt for a couple weeks, it is so nice to get back to my own Bosch drill. I do so much work stretched out to either side of the ladder when I install, and the lighter weight of my Bosch makes such a difference. The only issue I have experienced so far is a slight hesitation in the trigger. This is my first brushless tool, so I don't know if that is because of being brushless or maybe the contact points on my old battery.
