Bosch Power Tools has introduced a new 12v stick-style drill/driver, with a unique articulating head that locks the chuck in five positions between 90 and 180 degrees. Powered by lithium ion, the PS11 Max Angle Drill/Driver features a 3/8 in. keyless chuck and variable speed trigger.

With its narrow profile, pivoting head, and light weight (less than 3 lbs.), the Bosch is ideal for driving and drilling in tight spots, say, for installing drawer slides.

The Max Angle also has two convenient LED lights that pivot with the head, ensuring that the light is always aimed at the business end of the tool. It also has a built-in battery gauge, so you can see when you're almost ready for a recharge or new battery.

You can buy the 12V Max Angle Drill/Driver for $149. The kit (model No. PS11-2A) includes two batteries, a 30 minute charger, and a soft case. To locate a dealer, visit www.boschtools.com. We'll be taking a look at this tool in the coming months.
