The GBH 36V-LI Compact Professional is the first professional Bosch Power Tool to be driven by a brushless EC (electronically commutated) motor. This technology results in a low abrasive and maintenance free motor that makes carbon brushes unnecessary. Its higher degree of efficiency (80-90 per cent) compared to a standard DC-Motor (70 per cent) makes the GBH 36 V-LI Compact Professional one of the enhanced cordless SDS hammers in the world.

Review for Bosch GBH36V-EC 36V Li-ion Compact Brushless SDS Plus Rotary Hammer Drill by Ewelectrics
10th June 2020

Amazing. Best SDS I’ve used by far and at half the price of Milwaukee. Eats through stone walls like nothing. Only issue is no hammer only function, I get it might be overkill for this lightweight 36v and push the wall over but would be a good feature

Just the job, excellent quality and built to last. Have had mine a while and it certainly has a hard life! Batteries charge quickly and last long - drill is half the weight of my last sds which is great as I do a lot of heights work off of ladders its comfortable to use and has plenty of power - 100% recommended

Hands down, the best brill I've owned. More powerful than my 110v bosch and lasts along time in between charges. If you need to use a hammer drill daily this is the one to get.

On my second now, originally brought the first as a spare when I sent the big 36v in for repair. It hits harder and faster than the big brother. 2 years drilling up to 35mm holes no bother. Great drill for £250

What a drill, the power is just right and with the right drill bits goes through concrete and brick like a knife through butter. The 36v batteries are robust and keep going, had mine now for over 4 years and the only thing that's broke is the charger! The drill itself is easy to handle even one handed up a ladder, the hammer mode and rotary only mode make it versatile for all jobs. Will never change to any other hammer drill after having this one.

Great to use and can be stored away in tool boxes and bags, great to keep in the van. Would even be handy for use at home when needed.

It's always been a struggle choosing between Bosch, DeWalt and Milwaukee and clearly price is always an issue! For better or worse, I settled for Bosch and I've never been disappointed.

Eats through bricks like a knife through butter, only downside is the batteries don't last long. I've had one years and its really been put through its paces from drilling and chiselling to coring holes through hard brick walls.

This cordless sds from Bosch is a great bit of kit. It has all the power you need for a cordless sds but is hassle free with no cables trailing in your wake as you punch through brick, block or concrete. Its great value for money although the 36v batteries can be higher priced than youd expect if buying seperately. This is obviously due to the fact its a 36v battery though. For a decent ah you pay more. All in all a great bit of gear i have every faith in.

Happy with the 36v but compared to the 18v not a massive amount of difference. Fights it's way through tough materials but is quite heavy.

Good build quality, reliable, and pretty powerful. Make sure you get the bigger Ah battery with your drill and a spare!! Goes through walls with a 25,30mm bit no problem. Quite a big drill to lug around though if your just using for light fixing. There are lighter models on the market that would do those jobs.
