Bosch 18V Bluetooth Ready Brushless Compact Tough Drill GSR18V-535C And Hammer Drill GSB18V-535C

Bosch announces a new set of bluetooth ready brushless compact tough drills with the GSR18V-535C drill/driver and the GSB18V-535C hammer drill.

Although they have new model numbers, they’re essentially bluetooth ready versions of the DDS183 HDS183 brushless compact tough drills I reviewed years ago. You can check out my review on those by clicking here.

I mention these are bluetooth READY versions because out of the box they don’t include a bluetooth module and you have to buy the bluetooth module separately which adds to the cost of ownership. Once you purchase the optional bluetooth module, you can insert it into the handle of the tool so that you can get enhanced tool control and detailed tool usage feedback, including battery charge status. Users can customize the tool, which includes changing the KickBack Control sensitivity and adjusting the time the LED remains on after trigger release. You can check, view and change settings via the Bosch Toolbox app on your mobile device.

Other than the bluetooth ready feature, they feature all the same specs and features as the DDS183 HDS183 brushless compact tough drills including kickback control, same height and length, same RPM speeds, BPM and gearbox and 1/2″ metal chuck ratcheting chuck. Torque is similar but now is rated at 535 in-lbs torque which is only 4 in-lbs torque more than previous models. I’m sure it’s the same motor, gearbox and same torque as before but now are rounding the torque number up as 535 probably reads better than 531 in-lbs.
