The newest addition to the Bosch drill/driver product lineup, the PS130 features a two-speed gearbox that lets users quickly choose between high-torque (0 - 350 RPM) or high-speed (0 - 1,300 RPM) operation for powerful screw driving and drilling applications in soft and hard wood, and metal materials. Providing 265-inch-pounds of max torque, the PS130 can generate up to 19,500 beats per minute (BPM) for drilling in masonry.
The 20 + 1 clutch settings and two speeds allow users to adjust the tool's torque for optimal and precise screw driving and speed drilling applications.
For quick and easy accessory changes, a ⅜-inch auto lock chuck conveniently clamps drills and bits alike, clicking to notify users when items are secure for use. Additionally, a Mode Selector Ring allows users to switch between drill/driver and hammer modes to complete multiple functions with one tool and finish jobs more efficiently. 
Some additional tool features include:
    •    A soft grip for less user fatigue during extended-use occasions
    •    Electronic Cell Protection for longer battery lifetime
