For a couple of years I have said that the next time I need a right angle drill I am going to buy one. Finally that need came up and I started reading reviews.

Bosch 1132VSR-It’s Larger than it Appears

The Bosch 1132VSR is a substantial drill-slightly over 4 lbs, a 2 X 3 obround cross section and 12 inches long, in the Amazon picture it looks more like a toy (needs something in the photo to judge the scale).

Good size and power but the switch.

Most of my power tools are bosh and all my work buddies have heard me rave at least once about my positive Bosch experiences..

Plenty of power

This is a good sized, hefty drill, though the nose piece is tight, just what you want in a right angle drill. The variable speed works pretty well and you can dial in your max speed. The trigger is a bit hard to use with it’s ‘pull back first’ safety mechanism, hence the 4 stars instead of 5. I’m guessing their lawyers said “make sure this thing can’t turn on unless someone really really wants it to”. Even with the aggravating trigger it’s the best right angle I’ve owned.

Typical Bosch Quality

I bought this drill because it had lower RPM’s than the Makita and Hitachi giving it more torque than the other two. Most of the time I do not need speed but to just be able to do the job with an ample amount of torque. When the drill arrived I got a pleasant surprise. Mine was made in West Germany. In the picture it appears to have a large head but mine will get in between about 3″.

Trigger is hard to activate. Not enough power for drilling with a spade bit through studs.

I am a huge fan of Bosch tools and buy almost exclusively Bosch. I usually love them but this one is a real dud. I bought it to drill holes through studs for wiring and plumbing. I find it is fine if I use it with a simple drill bit but it doesn’t have enough power to drill a spade bit through a stud. The motor heats up very hot. I have to start and stop and start and stop to let it cool down.

I also have a Milwaukee close quater drill. This one is a lot more robust in construction. It also has a metal encased gearbox, which should be very druable. The on/off switch could be a little easier to operate, but I think Bosch designed it this way with safety in mind. Overall, a quality product.

I used this drill for an entire weekend, drilling holes for electrical wires in a large home addition. It performed flawlessly. Most of the holes were 7/8 inch (using a spade type bit), and this drilled handled it fine. The on/off trigger takes some time to get used; you have to pull down then in to operate the switch, but a great safety feature. I have used other right handle drills that didn’t have this and I ended up with banged up knuckles. This is a great little drill, with powerful performance, and excellent quality.

I already had a Milwaukee 3/8in close quater drill that workes very well. I got this because I wanted it, not needed it. It seems a step up in quality from the Milwaukee, and was 25 bucks more. Worth it. If I had to do it all over again, I would only have the Bosch.

Good Product, But a Bit Underpowered.

This comes in handy, but could use a bit more torque. I would buy it again as its very durable.
