Since the ps20 arrived on the scene a few years ago it has been the measure by which we judge the sub-compact. It’s well balanced, powerful and durable. Bosch says the new ps21 is all that the old model was and more. Of course, they always say that. We thought it would be better to find […]
This week Milwaukee announced the first product in their new 12V sub-compact line: a tiny, high-torque driver aimed directly at electricians and other pros looking to put their mid-size drivers on a diet. Of course, with this launch Milwaukee clearly draws a bead on Bosch’s successful PS20 — offering the first competition in the still-brand-new sub-compact […]
If you’ve been waiting for pricing on Bosch’s PS20 “Pocket Driver” to hit bottom, your wait may now be at an end. This morning we discovered the PS20-2 kit for $107.35 at Toolup.com. (It shows $113 — also a good deal — but discounts to the lower price when you add it to your cart.)
I thought it worth mentioning that when I was checking Amazon pricing for the last post I came across some pretty good deals on the Bosch PS-20 Pocket Driver. If you’re in the market for one, Amazon has them for $118 new, and factory reconditioned models run just $100 — about $10 off […]
We were talking to a Skil insider today and heard that this fall Skil will get a line of 10.8V lithium-ion tools. As you can imagine, our first thoughts jumped to parent-company Bosch’s 10.8V-li-ion-powered I-Driver and PS20.
We’re big fans of the PS20. If you don’t have one yet, shame on you. Go get one […]
From the (virtual) mail bin: “Have you seen or used the one-handed reciprocating saw? Home Depot and Lowe’s both have one, and I was wondering how well they work.” Indeed we have. Read on for details.
Rockwell is set to offer a 16V lithium-ion line, starting with a drill and an impact driver. Why should we care? Well, a few years back Bosch kickstarted the compact market with the PS20, reminding us that a) we don’t necessarily need to use the biggest possible drill for every job and b) small […]
Ok, so maybe it’s more of an evolution than a revolution, but Black & Decker seems to have definitely discovered how valuable a cheap, simple cordless screwdriver can be to the average user. Back when the original SmartDriver came out, we saw lots of press comparing it unfavorably to the Bosch PS20 (which cost […]
Though a lot of people we’ve talked to don’t like the PS10 form factor — many seem happier with the drill-like PS20 pistol-grip style — I’ve always been a huge fan. The Bosch PS10 is hands down the best tool I’ve found for general light assembly and disassembly around the house and shop. For […]
Take Skil’s cheap little iXO 4V lithium-ion driver, cut the pistol grip off it, and glue it to the front of a standard tubular flashlight, and you’ve got Skil’s #2350-01 “2-in-1 cordless screwdriver and flashlight.” Yes, it looks a little funny. But I won’t get bitten the same way I did when I expressed […]
