The Bosch PSR 10.8 LI-2 cordless drill/driver is a small, lightweight, powerful tool perfect for screwdriving and drilling tasks around the house. The 10.8 LI 2 is ideal for driving in and loosening screws as well as for drilling in wood and metal. The compact and handy design allows for convenient and versatile operation. It has approximately 25% less weight and less size compared to conventional drill/drivers thanks to lithium-ion technology and compact design. Plus, Bosch li-ion products come with electronic cell protection (ECP), which protects the battery against overheating, overloading and deep discharge and therefore guarantees a long lifetime of the battery. A PSR cordless screwdriver is recommended for longer overhead applications and larger diameters. Whether it be reconstruction work, repairs on a wooden patio or summerhouse, or renovation work and repairs on fences in the garden, the range of applications is (virtually) unlimited. For optimal storage use the charging station.
The Bosch PSR 10.8 LI-2 comes with 20 pre-selectable torque settings for perfect control for optimal power for every application. A large setting ring allows easy switching of the settings. With the correct setting, the screwdriver bit is stopped automatically as soon as the preset torque (tightness) is reached. There’s a great benefit from its high performance of drilling 20 mm holes in wood with up to 6 mm screws.
The keyless chuck allows tool-free easy changing of screwdriver and drill bits. The bits click audibly into place, ensuring a secure fit. When the on/off switch is not pressed, the drill spindle and thus the tool holder are locked. This enables screws to be screwed in, even when the battery is empty and allows the machine to be used as a screwdriver. The integrated Bosch Auto-Lock ensures that the machine locks the drill spindle at standstill, making it easy and convenient to open the keyless chuck.
The PSR 10.8 LI-2 comes with a 2-speed high performance planetary gearbox with a maximum no-load speed of 350 rpm (first gear) or 1,100 rpm (2nd gear). The high power in the first gear at low speed and high speed in the 2nd gear, ensures superior lifetime, best power transfer and high running smoothness.
The run-out brake stops the 10.8 volt motor in the shortest time possible, meaning no after-run. This is ideal for driving rows of screws, as you can work without interruption up to 250 screws with one fully charged battery. The Bosch Electronic allows speed control using the trigger switch with acceleration from 0-max. This allows for smooth pilot drilling followed by rapid drilling at full speed.
In addition to the superior advantages of li-ion technology, today’s li-ion cells need to be protected against their three major ‘life-time-killers’:
Overheating: The electronics intervene and shut down the tool before the battery heats up excessively.
Overload: The tool is shut down if the battery pack is put under excessive load
Deep Discharge: Bosch ECP ensures that the battery is not deeply discharged, therefore protecting it against irreparable damage.
The forward/reverse indicator means that users are able to screw in both directions. The green direction LED shows whether the screwdriver is in forward or reverse mode when screw driving. The integrated PowerLight is a built-in LED which means the work piece is always well lit and clearly visible. The battery charge-control indicator consists of three green LEDs, and indicates the charge condition of the battery for a few seconds when the on/off switch is pressed halfway or fully. The PSR 10.8 LI-2 also comes with Softgrip for a better and more comfortable hold.
The lithium-ion technology means that the tool is always ready to use.
Tools with lithium-ion technology are ready for use practically all of the time. Regardless of whether the battery is fully charged, partially charged, or flat, you can put it in the charging station without having to worry about self-discharge or memory effect.
Bosch lithium-ion cordless tools like the PSR 10.8 LI-2 are ready for use quickly. Even after a period of 4 months on standby, a fully charged lithium-ion battery is still charged to approximately 85 per cent. This means that Bosch Power is available to you for six times longer than that of conventional NiCd batteries.
Due to the lithium-ion technology, the size and weight of the batteries are reduced by approximately 60 per cent compared to conventional nickel cadmium batteries--although they offer the same amount of power.
The intelligent electronic cell protection, Bosch ECP, protects the lithium-ion batteries against excessive temperatures and overload, therefore giving them a particularly long lifetime.
Bosch cordless tools with lithium-ion technology impress with their very compact design, low weight and very good ease of use. This saves you a lot of effort when doing those DIY jobs.
