About the 25618 18-Volt Lithium-Ion Impact Driver
Tackle professional tasks or home projects with the combined power and precision of the 25618 impact driver and the 36618 drill driver (click each to enlarge).
The Bosch 25618 18-volt impact driver features a lightweight design for increased maneuverability in tight spaces and extended comfort. Boasting a high-performance motor and all-metal gears, this versatile tool is rugged enough for professional jobs and user-friendly enough for weekend workers. Bit changes are easy with the 1/4-inch hex drive, and a built-in LED provides extra light when needed.
The impact driver's robust motor and all-metal gears deliver 2,800 RPM or 3,200 BPM for fast results. For driving force, its hammer and anvil system produces 1,500 inch-pounds of dynamic torque. Thanks to a variable-speed trigger, it's easy to match the correct speed to the job. All this power comes in a lightweight package that fits into tight corners and won't overtax arm or hand muscles. At 5.7 inches long and 3.8 pounds, the 25618 is one of the most compact drivers on the market. To help out in dark corners or other low-light areas, the driver provides a built-in LED light for instant illumination.
This Bosch driver is capable of driving a three-inch all-purpose screw into a pressure-treated 4-by-4 in about one second, and can drive a 3-inch by 1/4-inch lag bolt into a pressure-treated 4-by-4 in less than four seconds.
About the 36618 18-Volt Lithium-Ion Compact Tough Drill Driver
The Bosch 36618 18-volt 1/2-inch compact tough Litheon drill driver is a durable, powerful, and compact tool for high-quality results. Up to one pound lighter than comparable 18-volt NiCad drill drivers, the 36618 won't weigh you down. It's ideal for a wide range of drilling and fastening jobs, from hanging curtains to building a deck to making automotive repairs to installing cabinetry.
The 36618 works at speeds up to 1,600 RPM and provides 500 inch-pounds of torque. Its sturdy Durashield housing and a steel-reinforced collar help you withstand real-world conditions, like temperature extremes, rain, dirt, debris, and drops. The 36618's Durashield housing is constructed with ABS/nylon composite, which allows it to flex on impact and withstand tough job-site conditions. 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 36618 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. And to help out in dark corners or other low-light areas, the drill driver provides a built-in LED light for instant illumination.
About Bosch’s Litheon Lithium-Ion Batteries
These tools are powered by 18-volt batteries from Bosch's Litheon line of lithium-ion batteries: 1.3 Ah slim pack (BAT609), 1.5 Ah slim pack HC (BAT610G), 2.6 Ah fat pack (BAT618), and the 3.0 Ah fat pack HC (BAT619G). Slim pack batteries offer the lowest weight option while fat packs offer the longest run time, and they all boast Electronic Cell Protection. (Two BAT609 1.3 Ah batteries are included with this set.) This battery pack design protects both the battery and the tool by preventing the three main causes of battery failure--overheating, overloading, and deep discharging. The results are optimal battery life and performance, 35 percent more run time, and up to two times as many recharge cycles.
