Any reason not to buy a refurb Bosch from CPO?

None that I can think of.

All Bosch tools that are refurbished are like new. Maybe some surface blemishes.

Thanks Mike. Surface blemishes make them look pre-loved. I can handle that.

I have bought a lot of refurbished tools from CPO, and they all look brand new and never had one fail, still using them.
