Ever want to tell Bosch what new tools you’d like? Here’s your chance. One of our friends over at Bosch called us up and asked us to pass on a question to you, and since we have a lot to say about the matter — and know you do, too — we decided to oblige. The question: What would you like to see in the Bosch 10.8V Litheon line? Remember, Big Brother Bob (Bosch) is listening.
We’ll kick things off. First of all, we love the 10.8V line. The I-Driver, Pocket Driver, and Impactor are great tools. We own one of each, and we use the crap out of ’em. We hope that Bosch continues the line, as it fills a niche that no one else is addressing — at least not successfully.
But there are two tools we’d really like to see in the line, ASAP: a light and a mini-reciprocating saw.
Black & Decker’s Handisaw is a great deal at $40, but its usefulness is dramatically limited by its low-budget cost-cutting design. We’d love to see a pro-level tool in this form-factor, and the 10.8V line is the perfect home for it. Keep the general shape and jig-saw blades, but add removable li-ion performance and — most importantly — variable speed, and you’ve got a home run.
And we’d kill for a 10.8V-powered work light. Hell, we’d buy one today.
I’m sure you’ve got even better ideas, so let us (and Bosch) know in comments.
