Bosch Professional

FlexiClick 12V with Brushless Motor

Bosch Professional has boosted the power of its popular FlexiClick 12V cordless drill driver system by adding a brushless motor. The resulting GSR 12V-35 FC Professional Drill Driver is said to be faster, stronger, more efficient and longer lasting, as well as maintenance-free.

Top speed has been increased by 35% to 1,750rpm, while maximum torque has been raised to 35Nm for hard screwdriving applications and 20Nm for soft. Increasing maximum drilling diameter in wood to 32mm and maximum screw diameter to 8mm has also expanded the tool’s job range. The tool’s length has also been reduced by 17mm compared to the previous model.
