One of my favorite tools- hands down- is the Bosch Freak. It is the type of tool you can’t help but love because it takes two very useful tools and combines two very useful tools. Let’s dive into what we know about the updated model in the New Bosch Freak.
New Bosch Freak – Standout Features

The Bosch EC Brushless Motor provides enhanced electronic controls for maximum performance and protection.
Compatible with Bosch’s 18V CORE Battery line, Bosch combines incredible technology for longer run time and enhanced performance while keeping your tool light for comfort.

New Bosch Freak – My Thoughts
The Bosch Freak made waves in the power tool world for its combined powers as an Impact Wrench and an Impact Diver. For me, I loved how it could easily tackle two tasks without sacrificing performance as most combination tools tend to do. I am a huge fan of my Bosch Freak- it has a special spot in the center console of my truck and has gotten me out of many difficuly positions.
Professional users love this tool for its ability to save space in their tool boxes, but also for the impressive technology and perfrmance Bosch never skips in their tools. With the new generation offering even more torque and some impressive features I think it will be a great update to the original model that I love so much!
