Product Description

From the Manufacturer

The entire system of the Bosch 1199VSR is designed to outlast the competition. It just keeps drilling! The Bosch-built high-output 8.5 Amp motor on this model along with the 1/2? 3-Jaw chuck are ideal for rugged hammer drilling applications. The dual-mode selector easily converts from rotation only to hammer drill mode. A patented rotating brush plate provides equal power in reverse to easily back out bound-up bits and doubles brush life. The pistol-grip handle is compact and ergonomic its soft-grip. The variable-speed reversing trigger allows accurate bit starting, as well as removing fasteners or bound bits. with the 2-speed gear box the user can select high-speed or high-torque applications. for a range of movement along with consistent drilling depth, Bosch has added the 360-Degree auxiliary handle with built-in depth gauge. An ambidextrous lock-on button helps reduce fatigue for both left- and right-handed users. A 12-Feet power cord has been added for user reach and convenience while the integral slip clutch helps minimize torque reaction.

First off, I like this drill. It does everything I need it to do. No, it's not fast and smooth when drilling concrete like a rotary hammer drill, but for occasional use it's just fine. It's a brilliant drill for wood and metal, mixing paint/drywall mud or lime mortar. I've owned and used mine for right about 5 years now in the realm of more than a normal home owner but less than a dedicated trades person (I own rental houses and am accumulating more).

Anyway, This set of reviews comes up fairly high on google search when looking for repair information. The drill itself is quite robust when it comes to the big/major parts. What's burning out is a stupid little $2 connector (Bosch 1614465012). When you run the drill hard, this connector will overheat and pop like a fuse. I repaired mine with a spare connector I had on hand (from my motorcycle wiring supplies), but the part is available and used in several models of Bosch drills.

To repair, unplug the drill. Remove the 3 T20 torx screws on the back of the grip and slide the grip apart. Disconnect the 3 wires that lead from the trigger assembly to the motor (green and black on top, white just above the trigger), remove the trigger assembly and set aside. Next, remove the 3 T20 torx screws that hold the 2 halves of the drill together. You'll want to do this over shop towels as there's grease inside. When you separate the 2 halves, take care to remove the drive gears from the motor side And the washer that fits between those gears and the housing. Remove and set aside the gasket that seals the 2 halves as well. Next, the rotor (center part of the electric motor that turns) will pull straight out ~ mine also came out with the black plastic dust shield, if yours doesn't that just pulls straight out.

I don't understand the negative reviews about this drill, except, perhaps, the only people commenting are those who have problems.

I purchased this drill about five years ago and have used it regularly.

I'm a framing carpenter . . . well, actually, now a RETIRED framing carpenter . . . and I use this drill to punch holes in concrete (fresh and old); 6X6, 4X6, 8X8 timbers; stacks of 2X lumber; and God-only-knows-what-else.

I have never replaced a single part on the drill. I throw it around, pick it up by the cord, drop it, leave it out in the truck. And now my grandson is bugging me to give it to him.

I purchased this drill form Lowes and only used it twice. Unfortunately the second time I used it was 2 months past the one year warranty and it just stopped working. Do yourself a favor buy a Dewalt form Home Depot. I talked to a local Bosch Repair Shop and he said the forward and revere switch burns out on them all the time. This drill sucks!!!

I bought this drill a couple of years ago and drilled 6-8 1/2" holes for concrete anchors. I went to use it today to drill some 3/8" holes in my garage floor and within 10 seconds it stopped working. I took the back plate off and checked it for current. No issue there. I looked online and it looks like these drills are notorious for burning out the fwd/rev switch. Nice, a Perfectly good drill stops working the second time you use it. I'll be buying DeWalt or Milwaukee from now on. These drills are garbage.

Adding to B. McCoy's very helpful review, which I used to guess at the issue and make the repair successfully. I let the drill overheat the second time I used it and it burned out. Bought both pieces mentioned in the review for $4 (plus much more than that in S&H!). Turns out it was the switch contact that melted - all works fine now. Helpful hints:
(1) You need to remove the brush plate, which is the piece that you rotate to reverse the drill (google for a parts diagram) - the switch contact is a curved piece of metal that sits behind it - pops out fairly easily. To remove the brush plate, stick your fingers in the front end of the casing and push the carbon brushes apart, then use your other hand to pull the brush plate out.
(2) I'd recommend reinstalling the brush plate after you put the stator and rotor back in, as you will need to hold the brushes apart to get over the end of the armature (I used a couple of bits of wire to hold the brush springs back once I'd got it onto the central plastic housing, then pushed).
(3) Minor point - the stator on my drill was secured by T10 torx, not T15.
