Default Crazy price for some 18v lithium ion Bosch drills

We ran this special last week, and now have access to 10 and only 10 more sets. I really do not want to bring them in so I am just basically giving them away at cost. I figured I would give you guys first crack at them. I think the cheapest I saw for the 25618 online was $229.90, so you are basically getting the lowest price around and the 1/2" for $20.00

You guys can take $100 off the prices listed on the links below. Both links take you to basically the same page.

Bosch 36618

Bosch 25618-02


These sets are coming from elsewhere so it might take a couple of weeks to ship if you order one.

Just put electriciantalk in the comment box when ordering. It will look like the site is billing you the full amount (349.80), we will adjust it $100 before it bills ya.

$249.80 to electriciantalk members. Our coupon system is messed up on our site, so sorry for OP verbage. Otherwise I would just make a $100 off coupon and post it here.

Edited it a little, so hopefully it is a little more clear. Both links are the same exact set.

I just wanted to update this thread a little, since we have had quite a few responces on it with questions. Yes we can still get these, finding them is another story. That is why such long shipping times of 2-3 weeks.

They are brand new in the box (bag), not refurbished or used in anyway. And they are not demo models. 100% brand new.

so i bought one of these combo kits and received it today. it's a nice combo set. the 18v drill driver is only a 2 speed, the 18v impactor is a impactor. Both items are a good buy at $250, about $125 each tool including 1 battery per tool and a 30 min charger. comparing the two items to my 18v hilti impactor and 18v hilti 3speed drill driver hammer... they owned the bosch.

Oh man garage sales can be the best as far as value goes. Ive seen many a wives put their husbands tools out on the table because of divorce, he doesnt use them, still in their packaging from the 90's, or hes not home and they just had a fight. I got a perfectly working craftsman skill saw for 10 bucks. Back when craftsman was still good.

I honestly don't see the need for anything more than a 2 speed drill.

Torque, and speed.

Anytime I use a dewalt with 3 speeds I jump from number 1 all the way to 3, who needs 2?

Just pull the trigger a little lighter.

Slowforthecones,

If you have any buddies out there that have Bosch 18V Litheon tools, you might want to see if any of them can let you use the BAT618 vs the BAT609. The slimpack batteries that combo kit comes with are nice for weight and slims down the tool a little, but they only produce 1.3 a-h. The standard battery is 2.6 a-h.

The 618 will fit both the tool and work on the charger.

You can also check out aftermarket battery manufactures for any power tool. Generally the manufactures will only put out batteries that are 3.0a-h at the most. Aftermarket manufactures will produce batteries all the way up to 4.2a-h that I have seen. They are also generally cheaper than the tool manufactures battery. Any company that makes a power tool, sells more batteries than they do the tools. My brother in law is a plumber and said he buys a ton of Dewalt batteries vs the tools themselves. I would image it is the same for you guys as well.

JJ
