Warranty / Certifications
Bought this drill driver yesterday and already love it. I have put my old drivers (Craftsman and B&D) in storage at the barn for yard sale later on. After purchasing the impact driver last month and saw the quality and durability of Bosch, I went yesterday and bought the drill driver to go with it....
I was surprised at how effective this drill is! Weighing in at just over 2 pounds, and having a length of 7" makes this drill not only easy to use in tight spaces, but incredibly easy, and a pleasure to use overall. There are a sufficient number of clutch setting to tackle most any task.
Great size and feel love the batteries and bosch is a good company who will stand behind if any problems great warranty on it to.
This is an awesome drill. Used it regularly on projects on the house. Very compact, yet powerful enough to get any job done.
This drill is great, I dont do heavy duty jobs so for me it cant be beat. Great power, speed, and the battery life is excellent.
I have used this drill for various handyman type projects and could not be happier. The battery life is terrific and having the batteries in the handle makes it much easier to use. It is like a cordless screwdriver with the functions and power of a drill. It is so easy and fast to change from dri...
I am an HVAC technician/plumber and this drill/driver is my primary. I use it heavily every day for everything from driving 1/4, 5/16, 3/8 screws on cover panels to drilling up to 1.5 inch holes with step bits and even 3" deck screws for securing 2x4s and other items to wood/siding/rafters e...
Very nice compact drill. Had more power than I expected, and excellent battery life.
Excellent hand drill. Small in size with enough power to get most any job done. The perfect match for the driver. And Yes, 12V is plenty of power.
I have 2 of them for about a year & a half now & love them both. They are used in my business for the manufacturing of pasta sauces. They are the the drivers in stirring my thick heavy sauces (5 gallon pot, 6 to 8 pots at a time, 6 to 12 hours at a time cooking, stirring 4 to 8 minutes at a time non...
I am impressed with this light yet powerful tool. I have plenty of extra batteries and use it all day. The fast recharge is amazing. I intend to purchase all the 12v tools.
I needed a drill and when I saw this one I decided to give it a try. I have an old cordless battery operated one that does not do the job so I was hopeful that this drill/driver would work for my needs. It is absolutely perfect, lightweight, easy to hold, silent when running, accurate and powerful....
I'm impressed with this little drill. It's small and lightweight (2lbs) but it's as powerful as the 18v drill I bought 4 years ago. It's impressive that Bosch can put so much power into such a small package. I used this to install a few ceiling lamps and had no problems with it. Never got tired and...
Drill has enough power to do the job, even though it is battery powered. Also comes with a lot of accessories.
Hands down best design, very comfortable to hold, light weight and lots of power.
This drill/driver is compact, powerful, & long lasting. It comes with a soft case, charger, 2 batteries, a belt clip, magnetic bit holder, flathead bit, P2 bit, T25 torx bit, & a SQ2 square bit. It has a battery life indicator on the left side of the drill & a light above the trigger. The grip has a...
the drill is fantastic for small to medium size jobs. much better than an older drill that i owned that was very heavy. this drill is compact & lightweight, along with being very balanced in your hand. includes a nice belt clip and driver bit holder. This is nice for working on a ladder without the...
Compact, powerful for home use, good balance in hand, easy to use... Soft case okay for around house. I have not experienced any chuck wobble. I would recommend this drill.
I'm always pleased with Bosch tools. They are sturdy and do their job. This drill is smooth and works well after many uses.
I used this drill with an auger bit to drill through multiple layers of 2x4 in a dark hot and cramped attic. This drill had more than enough power to do a difficult job my old faithful craftsman could not. I am really satisfied with this drill and the included parts. The extra battery is perfect so...

How long will the batteries hold a good charge while not in use (standby time)?
Thank you for your question. The Lithium Ion Batteries can hold the charge for months without needing a charge. It will depend on the storage temperature as well. For further assistance, contact us at 1-877-BOSCH99 (1-877-267-2499) from M-F 7a-7p CST.
I have set my drill aside and not gone back to using it for almost a week and still had 3 full bars of charge. It definitely holds a charge for a length of time when not in use.
Why do my bits fall out so easily? Do I need special bits or is that part of the design?
I haven't had any problems with them falling out. Maybe some oil or lube got into the holes that hold them.
Perhaps the bits you are using are a bit smaller than the hole. My bits have never fallen out and they all fit tight and remain in.
Thank you for your question. The PS32-02 Drill/Driver accepts both round and hex shank bit. It also has the chuck capacity of 3/8". If you continue to have issues please contact us at 1-877-BOSCH99 (1-877-267-2499) from Mon-Fri 7A-7P CST.
