It also offers the highest BPM in its category--over 30,000. And up to one pound lighter than comparable 18-volt NiCad drills/drivers, the 17618-01 won't weigh you down.
Unique, Flexible Power System
Like all tools in Bosch's 18-Volt line, the 17618-01 can be used with either a 1.3-Ah BAT609 Slim Pack battery or a 2.6-Ah BAT318 Fat Pack (two included). If you're looking for a lighter-weight option, the Slim Pack is the perfect choice. If longer runtime is what you need, the Fat Pack will do the job. Bosch is the only power tool manufacturer that provides this option.
Fast Speeds, High Torque, and Durable Construction for Reliable Results
The 17618-01 works at speeds up to 2,050 RPM and provides 650 in./lbs. of torque. Durashield housing, unibody construction, and a steel-reinforced collar help you withstand real-world conditions, like temperature extremes, rain, dirt, debris, and drops.
The 17618-01's Durashield Housing is constructed with ABS/Nylon composite, which makes the housing flexible and impenetrable. Unlike competitive tools, which use a conventional plastic housing, Durashield will not crack and can easily withstand 10-foot drops.
This tool also features unique unibody construction with three steel straps that keep the motor, gears, and clutch together. This ensures that the gears never separate from the motor, and it keeps the drill functioning even after drops.
Additionally, the 17618-01 boasts an exclusive steel-reinforced collar that protects the nose of the drill. It provides extra reinforcement in the event of drops on the chuck and prevents the chuck from bending or breaking off.
Easy Bit Changes and Balanced Design for Utmost Control
The 17618-01 comes complete with a single-sleeve 1/2-inch metal for chuck optimum durability and one-handed bit changes, as well as increased drill-bit capacity for versatility. And for maximum control, comfort, and balance, the tool boasts a newly designed handle-grip with finger support.
25 Clutch Settings for Optimum Precision
To ensure precise results, the 37618-01 provides 25 clutch settings--the highest number of settings available on any model that's currently on the market. Settings 1-20 are perfectly suited for driving small screws; settings 21-25 provide the right amount of power for large screws and large drill bits, such as auger bits or self-feed bits. To choose the correct speed, simply use the variable-speed trigger and enjoy consistent, controlled operation.
Smart Features for Easy Use
To keep operation smooth and to help you stay fatigue-free, the 17618-01's ergonomic design and two-tone, soft-grip handle provide optimum comfort and control--even during all-day jobs. And for even greater convenience, LEDs provide illumination when you are working in dark or enclosed areas.
The 17618-01 comes with the ProVantage three-year protection plan, which guarantees two years of battery protection and one year of tool protection. Under this plan, you can receive two years of free battery replacements, tool replacement for one year, and a free tool repair package for the second and third years.
