Thanks to the Push&Go function, the new PushDrive cordless screwdriver from Bosch offers DIY enthusiasts convenient handling without the need to press a switch: Simply position the tool with the screw against the workpiece, put slight pressure on the cordless screwdriver and it’s ready to kick off powerfully. The PushDrive is ideal when you need a compact screwdriver for your large-scale project. Just slightly larger than a classic manual screwdriver, the cordless screwdriver fits easily into your trouser pocket and is therefore always at hand.

Neat results thanks to torque selection and neutral position
The torque selection feature of the new cordless screwdriver ensures more control while working as well as consistent screwdriving results. It will help DIY enthusiasts to optimally adjust the power required for the screwdriving process according to material and application. A total of six different settings are available. The PushDrive provides additional control with the middle position of the rotational direction setting switch. If this switch is set to the middle position, the bit holder becomes locked so that the PushDrive can be used like a classic manual screwdriver. This way, DIY enthusiasts can fine-tune the screws by tightening them manually – therefore avoiding over-tightening, wear on the screws and damage to the surface of the material.

Compact and always ready for action on large-scale projects
Whether you are implementing a project, carrying out small repairs or working overhead – with the new cordless screwdriver, Bosch is providing experienced DIY enthusiasts with the perfect tool to quickly drive in a screw or access a tight corner. Its design makes the compact and convenient PushDrive especially suited to making screw fittings from bottom to top, such as when fitting worktops or wall-mounted shelves. If the guide rails for a drawer need fitting at the back of the dresser, DIY enthusiasts can also use the cordless screwdriver comfortably by pressing it to the workpiece. Thanks to tried-and-tested lithium ion technology, the cordless screwdriver is always ready for action – without battery self-dis¬charge or memory effect. The practical micro USB charger allows for quick charging times and flexible connection options. For example, the PushDrive can be easily charged using a smartphone cable.
