Product Description

The Bosch 36-volt Brute Tough hammer drill/driver gives you minimum weight and maximum run time, for a tool that powers through the toughest jobs. It won't give out before the task is finished, and it won't wear you out, either. Rugged, reliable, and ready to tackle any task, this workhorse promises a lifetime of service and strength.

This hammer drill's Brute Tough construction comes complete with Unibody Powertrain, which keeps the hardy metal gears in alignment so they won't grind, catch, or fail. It also boasts a metal reinforced collar and Durashield housing so you know it'll withstand real world working conditions. This model can even survive a 1-story drop, in case of work site butter-fingers.

Although the 18636-02 is designed to be a sturdy job site companion, it's also loaded with precision features that provide real accuracy as well as muscle. The hammer on/off ring lets you easily engage or disengage the hammer mode, and externally accessible brushes can be switched out for maintenance in as little as two minutes. This hammer drill has a 15-position clutch, and the Flexible Power System to let you match the battery output to your task.

The 18636-02 has a 15-position clutch and a ratcheting, carbide tooth single sleeve 1/2-inch chuck for easy one-handed bit changes. Its Litheon 36-volt batteries allow more battery charges and longer run times, and they're so light that they weigh less than most 14.4-volt batteries. Best of all, the included Litheon fast charger will bring them up to 80-percent of their power capacity in just 30 minutes. This model offers a no-load speed of 0-450 and 0-1,500 rpm in drill mode, and 18,000 bpm in hammer mode, with 600 in./lbs. of torque. The kit includes one double-ended bit, a Litheon fast charger and two Litheon 36-volt FatPack batteries, a 360-degree auxiliary handle, and a carrying case.

Use this hammer drill for a wide variety of heavy-duty applications. It drills and drives holes and fasteners in concrete, masonry, stone, wood, metal, and plastic. It can also be used to drill holes in concrete footings to pin concrete wall forms, or to drill holes in concrete floors to pin wall framing.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best drill on the market May 8, 2008
Verified Purchase
Great drill. Super engineering. i got the one with the larger capacity batteries and they have a really long run time. ANd the drill is designed so that the weight is not a problem. Very well designed and engineered. Pwerful and the easy to use chuck is absolutely super. I like the way you can check on the battery capacity by pushing a button on the battery. THe charger is nice, has a built in handle and it charges really fast. This is a powerful tool, and better than the others I have used in the past.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bosch 36v vs. Milwaukee V28 February 4, 2010
By ....
Verified Purchase
I'm a contractor. I have both the Bosch 36 volt 4 tool kit and the Milwaukee V28 volt 4 tool kit. Both are good kits. The Bosch saws have rafter hooks on them which are very handy. The V28 has more power and the batteries last longer per charge. I'm not saying the Bosch is weak. Bosch 36 Volt is the 2nd most powerfull cordless tool I've used. American Bosch tools have a 2.0 amphour rating. Bosch gave their Europe versions 2.6 amphours. Way to go Bosch!! The V28 batteries are 3.0 amp hours. The Bosch saws will stall out if you strain them too much. They do this to protect the battery. It's slightly annoying when 32 feet up on a ladder but otherwise a good feature. The V28 does not have this feature and my batteries have held well up under heavy use for over 4 years. The V28 drill can get hot when screwing off a large deck mid-summer. The V28 drill has a metal chuck. The Bosch 36 Volt has a metal chuck with a plastic sleeve. When drilling in tight places the chuck may rub creating sharp grooves in the chuck which will cut your hand (can be sanded to remove them). Both chucks grip bits well. The V28 drill is well balanced. The Bosch 36 v drill is a little akward when holding it but not to bad. The Bosch 36 Volt drill does not stand up well when placed on a floor as the battery has a small flat bottom. The V28 circular saw has a metal guide. The Bosch circular saw has a heavy duty plastic guide which may not be as heavy duty if dropped. The Bosch circular saw guide does work better when cutting a 45 degree bevel cut. The V28 circular saw guide gets hung up and doesn't open easily when cutting a 45 degree bevel (you have to open the guide with your hand but most saws operate like this). The V28 circular saw comes with the rip guide and it has numbers on it. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars The Bosch 18636-02 Hammer Drill Is An Awesome Tool! January 3, 2009
Verified Purchase
Bosch 18636-02 36-Volt Litheon Hammer DrillThe Bosch 18636-02 36V Litheon Hammer Drill is an impressive workhorse. It is ideally suited for heavy duty drilling, especially in concrete and heavy steel, with more than ample torque. It is somewhat heavy for the average lightweight work (I use my 18V drill for average work). Good grip and balance. Full battery charge takes approximately 45 minutes and seems to run "forever" on a charge. The charge level indicator on each battery pack is a real plus. The carry case makes it a pleasure to carry on the job.

I am impressed at the quality and incredible well built Bosch drill. From the first experience of drilling hard wood, you quickly understand the difference of this heavy duty drill vs. the cheaper built drills out there. The bit will not slow down and will remain at the same constant speed! The battery packs are devices within themselves. Button to check the battery level, temperature working light. They are heavy and the drill is overall heavy with the battery, but its not your average drill.
Finally, the service Bosch provides is non-negotiably superior, I have tried them in past and all I can wish for is that they continue the A+ service.
I would recommend it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Heavy Duty Drill March 21, 2009
Verified Purchase
I think this Bosch 36 volt drill is very well made. I have been drilling holes in brick for both lead anchors and for plastic anchors, with great success. The only faults that I have with it are: 1. It is top heavy and tends to fall over. I think the batteries could have been made flatter, and 2. the chuck is hard to keep tight, which can be very annoying when you are drilling something. Other than that, the battery lasts for ever, the drill itself works hard and it is a pleasure to use

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Drill November 30, 2008
By Mud Dog
Verified Purchase
This is a wonderful drill. The first drill that always ran true (no wobble in the bit during use)! As light as my old 18v Ridgid hammer drill. Incredible power! The best drill I've ever owned! Bosch has also created a wonderful case for the drill. This is about the same price as many 18-volt hammer drills, is better quality than nearly any other cordless hammer drill, light weight, more power and Bosch quality! What's not to like? I resoundingly recommend this drill!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Powerful November 25, 2008
By Joe
This drill is amazingly powerful. The battery is the heart of the system. The newer Lithium Ion batteries, such as this one, have no memory effect and can be charged early or at the dead state. This battery rocks! Lots of power all the way up to its long long end of charge.

I've had this Bosch rechargeable drill (with hammer feature) now for over a year. Usually after a bit of time using a tool I can think of several changes I'd like to see implemented, but not this time. Simply stated, this is a virtually perfectly designed and executed tool. I purchased the kit that includes the charger and the two larger-capacity batteries, highly recommended. This drill is so powerful it can be dangerous ... the instructions make a point about always using the detachable side handle due to the high torque this baby can produce. For convenience, I sometimes ignore that advice but on it's highest torque settings this tool could do a real number on your wrist.

The keyless chuck works like a champ and even though this is a hefty tool it is well-balanced and a pleasure to use. Torque settings and selecting drill or "hammer" is easily accomplished by turning two large, well-marked, aluminum rings just behind the chuck. I've had no problem using this tool dangling in a bosun's chair 60 feet up the mast of my sailboat. The battery packs have a handy red "test" button that you can push which lights up a three-element LED display to show the state of charge of the Li-ion batteries. The reversing switch is well-sized and very conveniently located so you can easily reverse the direction of the drill while not repositioning your hand on the trigger grip. The handle, rear of the motor housing, and both ends of the battery packs are coated with a tough dark gray rubber material that is very easy to grip. Replacing a battery pack is literally "a snap" but as the drill seems to run forever on a single charge you won't be using the big red top-mounted battery release button very often during a job.

Performance wise, you wouldn't know it was cordless. It is solid and feels like it was built well. Has no trouble running 1.5" spade through oak.
