Quickly (2 hours of drilling) discovered my battery bosch, whilst ace at screwing things, was awful against mortar. In steps the Bosch PSB 500, and what a revelation, quick work was made of half a dozen holes in brick that would have taken 2 days with my previous drill.
I wouldn't expect to use this for lots of work, its a budget hammer drill afterall, but what it does for quick small jobs is fantastic. The adjustable foregrip made it super easy drilling in tight corners, and it really motors along at full tilt.
The downsides are that its quite hard to keep at a slow pace for drilling, but the hammer function worked like wild stallions at even half pace so that wasn't really a problem in the end. It also, because of the speed, threw dust everywhere, but thats my own fault for being overzealous.
Overall; Brilliant for quick drilling jobs around the place, plenty of grunt and no batteries required.
Twist chuck is good though.
I used it with a drill mount sanding wheel to remove some paint and now the drill doesn't spin perfectly straight anymore, it wobbles!
Old bosch drills would have stood up to this, but this is obviously a cheap chinese drill.
Mains powered -- No need to replace expensive batteries when they wear out.
Small size -- OK when space is limited.
Smooth and quiet.
CONs: The variable speed trigger works, but even at its slowest speed it is too fast to use as a screwdriver. This means there's
no much point in having a reverse switch.
This updated version is better, lightweight, easy to use for a left hander and has no chuck key to loose.
I chose the electric over the battery because I use it infrequently and it was much less money.
Recently I have put it through its paces drilling hanging basket brackets in various stone and brick. It performed perfectly and is great for me.
