Key Features


2,600 RPM Motor

There are key factors you need to look at as a customer when you want to buy a drilling machine. One of the fundamental considerations is power. The drilling machine should have the capability to drill different surfaces quickly and faster.

One of the reasons why I say that the Bosch 1006VSR 3/8-Inch Keyless Chuck Drill is the best because it has around a 6.3 amp variable- speed motor that delivers up to 2600 rpm. The rpm gives it the high power for impressive drilling performance.


Over-sized Two Finger Trigger

One may think that the purpose of the design to have over-sized two finger trigger is accommodate those who have big sized fingers. No, that is not true.

The over-sized two finger trigger of the Bosch 1006VSR 3/8-Inch Keyless Chuck Drill is one of the important unique features has. Before I had an experience with the drill, changing the speed of the drill while drilling was truly hectic.

I believe those who have done drilling before can testify that. The over-sized two finger trigger of the Bosch 1006VSR 3/8-Inch Keyless Chuck Drill increases comfort when frequently changing the drilling speed.


Lock-on Switch Design

As you working with machines is in itself dangerous. It can be more dangerous when the design of the device itself exposes you to more danger. Safety during any machine work is paramount.

Therefore, a good machine should be safe when using. I once saw a colleague of mine almost dead just because there was accidental activation of one of the machines.

The Bosch 1006VSR 3/8-Inch Keyless Chuck Drill takes your safety into consideration and that is why is has the lock on switch. The improved lock-on switch design of the drill is recessed to help prevent accidental actuation.


Sturdy Belt Clip

Drilling for a long time can be tiresome. For those who have gone through, such experience will agree with me that at this a point you wish you could get a robot to a machine so that you just command it to continue doing drilling operations.

The reason is that of tiredness. There are also times during drilling that you want to do other operations but you cannot since the design of the drill does not accommodate that.

For these challenges that the Bosch 1006VSR 3/8-Inch Keyless Chuck Drill come in handy. The drill has a durable, sturdy belt clip which makes toting the handy drill smooth and hand free.
