DDS181-02 use

Fast Speeds, High Torque, and Durable Construction

The DDS181-02 has two optimized speeds--one ideal for high-torque applications (0-500 RPM) and one ideal for high-speed applications (0-1,700 RPM)--and it provides a maximum of 600 inch-pounds of torque. The 4-pole open frame motor and newly developed gearbox provide exceptional power for such a compact drill/driver. The 18+1 clutch settings included in this Compact Tough model and a variable-speed trigger help you match the best speed to the job, so you can achieve precise results. It can drive 500 screws per charge using the BAT619G 3.0 Ah HC battery (not included).

Balanced Design and Easy Bit Changes

The ergonomically designed handle and soft-grip wrapped housing offer a comfortable fit for extended working time. The DDS181-02 comes complete with a single-sleeve 1/2-inch auto-lock chuck for one-handed bit changes, as well as increased drill-bit capacity for versatility. And for even greater convenience, LEDs provide illumination when you are working in dark or enclosed areas.

Flexible Power System

In addition to the 1.5 Ah HC lithium batteries included in this kit, this drill/driver can be used with Bosch's batteries from its 18-volt line--including the 1.3 Ah Slim Pack battery (model BAT609), the 2.6 Ah Fat Pack battery (model BAT618), and the 3.0 Ah HC Fat Pack battery (model BAT619G). If you're looking for a lightweight option, the Slim Pack is the perfect choice. If longer runtime is what you need, the Fat Pack will do the job.

The DDS181-02 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great drill! Nov. 29 2013
By Josh

This drill works great! My father and brother are both in trades and swear by Bosch tools. When I came across this on sale, I couldn't resist! Has excellent torque and power. Batteries last plenty long for the average home user. Has a good rugged feel to it and is t overly heavy. Very satisfied!

5.0 out of 5 stars Like it a lot!! Dec 3 2012
Verified Purchase
This is just a great tool. The batteries are so light and compact, and the drill is easy to get into and use in tight spaces. Lots of power right up until the last turn, well almost, And when the battery is about to be exhausted and it stalls, if you wait for a couple seconds, there's enough recovery to get the screw in, or a bit out.

4.0 out of 5 stars Like it, but it does have wobble March 8 2014
Verified Purchase
This drill is great for the average DIYer. Battery life is good and it recharges fast. It's nice and compact. Bit change is easy, and I've had no problem "centering" the bit as another customer has. The one small bit included seems a little silly, but the main thing that keeps it from being 5 stars is the evident wobble that occurs when drilling. I'm still able to drill the holes that I need, but there is a definite wobble while drilling. I've noticed a few of the customers on the American Amazon site have the same complaint.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lots of torque Feb. 25 2014

Chuck holds bits tighter than most drills. Lots of torque, enough to turn my 8inch ice auger thru 3 feet of ice with ease.
