Powerful, versatile and finally great lighting!
Great tool, very flexible with hex and large socket compatibility.
Be sure to only buy long-shaft hex bits, the short ones are too short for the tool.

When purchasing this tool, it was difficult to work my way through all the different variations out there to select the right one. This one checked all the boxes in terms of power and flexibility. The fact that only long-shaft hex bits are really usable, escaped my research, sort of bummed out by that. The great lighting makes up for it. Finally with this version, the lighting brightness and the positioning of the lights is what I expect. In previous versions, the bit section would shade the work surface from the light making the light much less useful. This one, with it's surround lighting, eliminates this shortcoming.
A Powerful tool is also power hungry - running this with a 2 Ah battery is not going to give you a lot of usable time. Consider a larger battery for the tool.

A freaking awesome impact
I won a few of these from Bosch on a Instagram giveaway a few months back and gotta say, they have changed my whole outlook on Bosch tools and batteries. This little impact has some power! Not only is it good for woodworking and diyer projects around the house, pop an impact socket on and go rotate your cars tires with it! The included 6.3ah battery is a beast in its own right. Quick charging and long lasting. The only upgrade I think Bosch should look into is adding a usb port on it.... That way batteries have more use than just powering tools. I did have a hard time going on the site and registering the drills i won for some reason, but thats ok. As usual Bosch somehow always finds a way to improve on perfection, which is why they have me for life!

I'M AN INDUSTRIAL MECHANIC AND EXTREMELY IMPRESSED WITH THIS TOOL AND I USED IT EVERY DAY AT WORK. THE 1/4 PIN AND 1/2 INCH SOCKET DRIVE, WITH THE 3 POWER SETTINGS MAKE MY WORK A WHOLE LOT EASIER AND FASTER, WITH JUST ONE TOOL. i WANT ANOTHER FOR HOME AND I'M SWITCHING OVER TO BOSCH TOOLS.

this is the third tool because i had to exchange the first two. the first two had trigger problems that did not allow me to feather the drill speed. i'm kind of expecting the third drill to eventually have the same problem so, very disappointed.

I got this from the freakNcontest and what more can I say the thing is amazing runs very smooth love the fact that I don't have to put an adapter in for sockets and to drive in a screw after drilling a pilot hole amazing hybrid tool I hope you guys update this particular variant I know you came out with a brushed version there are plenty of professionals that need more torque and Ipm I on the other hand I'm completely satisfied with the results

When Bosch came out with this impact a few years ago I knew I wanted it but the price was beyond my means. Since then the price has come down and I ended up purchasing it in the bare tool option since I already had three batteries for the companion drill. I love the features...great battery life, perfect LED placement (though I wish there was a "stay on" feature, awesome to have the 1/2 socket ready front end, and the variable torque option for small to large jobs. One gripe: None of my bit sleeves will lock into the 1/4 slot, so I'll have to get a couple with longer shanks.
