For do-it-yourselfers who want to always have their bits at hand when screwdriving, there is now the PSR Select from Bosch. This cordless screwdriver has an integrated cylinder that contains twelve standard bits. To change the bit, you turn the cylinder until the required bit appears in the viewing window, press the switch behind the cylinder to push this bit forward into the bit holder, and then you can carry on working as normal. This “Easy Select” system ensures that you will never again lose a bit and you don't have to search for the right accessory. If you want to replace a bit, you simply take it out of the bit holder, replace it with a new one and then pull it into the cylinder using the switch. That’s all you have to do to adapt the range of bits to your own needs.

Versatile and easy to operate
The PSR Select is small, handy and powerful all at once: it weighs only 500 grams, is powered by a 3.6 volt lithium-ion battery and can drive up to 90 screws per battery charge. The PSR Select is designed for screw diameters up to five millimeters. Thanks to its bit cylinder, it can store the right bit for virtually any screw, is versatile and covers all basic screwdriving applications.

The integrated lithium-ion battery has hardly any self-discharge and no memory effect. As a result, the PSR Select is ready to use even after lengthy breaks and you can recharge it at any time without worrying about impairing performance. The charging state is displayed by LED.

The built-in LED, the “Power Light”, lights up even dark work areas well. A softgrip surface ensures a firm hold and the two-finger trigger makes the cordless screwdriver comfortable to operate.

The Bosch PSR Select will be available from June 2012 onwards at the recommended price of 69.99 euros including VAT. The tool is supplied in a carrying case including charger and twelve screwdriver bits.
