Bosch vs. Ronix – Which Brand Makes Better Tools?

Bosch is definitely one of the best names in the industry. It has been around for many years and is highly trusted by DIY-ers, woodworkers, home-builders and other professionals. RONIX on the other hand has been present in the industry for more than a decade now. It has gained the trust of users inside its birth place and its entering countries beyond the borders fast.

Choosing between them can be a challenging task for many reasons. Hopefully, I can at least attempt to simplify your decision-making process by reviewing their history and power tools.

A Little History on Bosch

After being around for 130 years, it is easy to say that Bosch definitely has a deep history. Its history begins in Stuttgart, Germany, where Robert Bosch created the “Workshop for Precision Mechanics and Electrical Engineering” in 1886. Here, they entered the business world with their birth of the spark plug and better ignition systems.

From then until now, Bosch has had their hands in a multitude of different areas of the business world, from the automotive industry to Telehealth. To list all of their innovations could take pages, but a few examples include a round electric fridge, the first mobile hydraulic lift, three-way catalytic converters, electronic antilock braking systems for vehicles, hybrid vehicle technology and eBike drives.

Today, the Bosch group includes four business sectors: mobility solutions, industrial technology, consumer goods (which includes power tools), and energy and building technology. Specifically, Bosch’s power tool division was started in 2003. Most of their products are made in Malaysia, Mexico, Taiwan, and China but there are still some products manufactured in Europe; specifically Germany and Switzerland.

Ronix vs. Bosch Quality

To compare the quality of these two brands  you need to be nonjudgmental, to say the least. Both companies have a good reputation and have been trusted by their consumers. I will do my best to point out a few pros and cons of each, based on two similar drills each has out on the market currently.

Bosch DDS180-02 cordless drill driver

The cordless Bosch DDS180-02 is both a drill and driver that can be used in around the workshop or home. Powered by an18-volt, 1.3 amp-hour lithium-ion battery, the tool delivers a maximum speed of 1700 rpms and up to 600in-lbs of torque.

Speed

Coming with two speed variations, a task that requires more torque is best suited with the 0-500 rpm range while the 0-1700 maximum rpm is effective on applications that require more power.

Battery

Although the drill comes with two 18V, 1.3 Ah batteries, and it is also compatible with a range of chargers as well as Li-on batteries.

The 1.3 Ah (slim Pack) is light and best for light duties, the 2.6Ah (FatPack) is ideal for more demanding tasks, while the 3.0Ah (FatPack HC) is the most powerful. At least you have choices.

High Torque and Power

With a maximum torque output of 600inch-lb, and 1700 rpm Max, the Bosch drill can handle a variety of needs. This is further improved by the Optional Flexible Power System (FPS) that allows a user to select between minimum weight and maximum run time.

Price

The price of bosch products are really high, which may be important to many users. Like this drill which will cost you around 120$.so it may not be the best choice price wise.

The design of the 10mm full metal keyless chuck in Ronix 8618N ensures high durability in tight workspaces. Loosen the chuck to remove a bit, and tighten it again to secure the bit before using it. As this chuck is keyless, make sure to use enough force to tighten it right up.
