Bosch's New 1006VSR 3/8" Drill Delivers Best Performance-to-Value Ratio in Class
Pro features and durability abound on new workhorse corded drill!

Mount Prospect, Ill., September 21, 2009 - When it comes to simplicity, reliability and value, there is no substitute for a high quality corded drill. The new 1006VSR 3/8" Drill from Bosch Power Tools & Accessories delivers everything a great corded drill should and does it in a lighter, more ergonomic and more powerful package.

While the tough 6.3 Amp motor performs in even the most demanding applications, the variable-speed, two-finger trigger enables users to manage that power with authority. With the ability to dial in speed from 0-2,600 RPM, the result is precise control and incredible versatility.

Although the 1006VSR is a leader in the power department, users will also appreciate the tool's light weight. At only 3.4 lbs, Bosch's 1006VSR offers the best power-to-weight ratio in its class. The light weight, great balance, two-finger switch and a newly re-designed soft grip handle all add up to create a drill that offers users all-day comfort.

The 1006VSR features a 3/8" keyless chuck for quick and easy accessory changes and a recessed lock-on switch to prevent accidental lock-on. A durable belt clip frees up hands for other tasks. Inside the tool, upgraded components offer outstanding durability and reliability.

The $59 Bosch 1006VSR 3/8" Corded Drill will be available through authorized dealers nationwide this fall. To find out more, users may visit or call 877-BOSCH-99.
