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.

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.

A powerful drill, fits well in your hands. I used it for hours to strip paint off a galvanized steel garage side. The battery would last 20 minutes, and re-charge in an hour. Is this a problem? Not really, since my hands need a rest too. I would rate it a 5 stars, but the charger is a bit dated, the only indicator it has is a blinking (or steady) green light. It is possible to be sloppy, and put the battery in without full engagement (and it doesn't get charged). The chuck works well, and so does the clutch (which has continuously variable settings at which the motor will disengage). At the price of can $150 this is a fantastic deal.

I have several Bosch products and have faith on their product reliability. I possibly made a wrong choice to buy this product for winter tire replacements.
I was expecting more torque from 18V product.

I received the drill extremely fast as far as I was concerned (three days). The drill is very light and therefore convenient to use especially when working when you have to hold the drill above your head. I used it working on my eaves troughs and dropped it from the extension ladder onto a cement sidewalk. The drill was not damaged nor marked at all. It handy to have two rechargeable batteries which are included. I haven't had the drill for very long but so far I am quite happy with it.

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!

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.

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.

Haven't had a great deal of use of it yet, but my initial reaction is quite good. Very lightweight and compact for a half in drill with lots of torque. The batteries seem to have good life so far and recharge fairly quickly

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