About the DDS181 Drill/Driver
This 18-volt Bosch drill operates with fast speeds, high torque, and durable construction. It 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.
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.

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 SlimPack battery (model BAT609), the 2.6 Ah FatPack battery (model BAT618), and the 3.0 Ah HC FatPack battery (model BAT619G). If you're looking for a lightweight option, the SlimPack is the perfect choice. If longer runtime is what you need, the FatPack will do the job.

About the 25618 Impact Fastening Driver
Bosch has developed a new line of impactors that have faster performance for increased productivity. This driver is part of that new line, and attributed to the lithium-ion batteries, is up to 27-percent faster than comparable cordless impact drivers and impact wrenches. In the demanding world of metal fastening and serial screw driving applications, the increase in speed means a significant boost to productivity. The Bosch impact driver is capable of driving a 3-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. The driver also has a dynamic torque with variable speed trigger for optimal control. The 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 (125 feet-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, so it won't overtax arm or hand muscles. At 5-3/4-inches long and 3-1/3 pounds, this impact driver is one of the most compact on the market. It is also incredibly user friendly to help save time and reduce fatigue, rather you are a professional or novice user. In addition to its compact size, the driver features a spring-loaded impact mechanism to reduce user fatigue. A 1/4-inch hex drive makes for fast, easy bit changes, while externally accessible brushes make replacements easy. Also, to help out in dark corners or other low-light areas, the driver provides a built-in LED light for instant illumination.

Bosch’s HC Lithium-Ion Batteries
Bosch is known for their revolutionary state-of-the-art lithium-ion HC batteries. The CLPK232-181 combo kit comes with two lithium-ion HC batteries that provide extended runtime. Bosch’s HC lithium-ion batteries run up to 50-percent longer than competitor batteries. They can also perform in harsh temperatures as low as negative 4-degrees Fahrenheit (negative 20-degrees Celsius). Besides being long lasting and optimal performers in cold weather, these lithium-ion batteries also work smarter with the integrated battery fuel gage.

The Bosch 18V Max 2-Tool Combo Kit provides everything that you would want in a rechargeable drill/impact combo.

- High quality build - The construction looks and feels very solid. The drill features steel gearing and seems to have a solid internal clutch. It is tough to comment on dependability of a tool within the first 5 years of ownership. My expectation is that the Bosch was built to last.

- Quick charge battery - it takes 30 minutes or less to fully charge the battery.

- Indicator on the battery to show how much charge remains. This is a pretty cool feature, and one that if used properly will help extend battery life,

**** quick comment on lithium batteries. Do not run the batteries completely down, and in fact, stop using the and recharge the battery once you begin to notice the charge to wane. Also, do not leave the battery on the charger for extended amounts of time.... it takes 30 minutes to charge the battery, so plan to remove the battery after 30 minutes.****

- Battery life is listed at 6 hours - which is quite good for the 1.5Ah battery.

- The drill/driver is variable settings (high/low) and the overall speed can be dialed in for the proper speed.

- The "Impactor" impact feels very good in your hand - very well balance. It offers plenty of power and is a perfect tool for driving in screws. On small jobs and decking type jobs I switched from a cordless drill to a impact a few years ago, and it was a decision that I never looked back from.

- LED - the Impact has a light that shoots straight down the screw head, but for some reason the drill/driver has a n LED that shines *up* from the battery pack. See the video... I am not sure why Bosch decided to do this.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Well, I have to admit that I'm very hard on cordless drills, although I'm not really sure why since I'm just a DIY'er and I take very good care of my tools. I used to treat cordless drills as an almost disposable item - I would just use it for 6 months to a year and then buy a replacement when it broke.

After a few years, I decided to move up from Ryobi and Black & Decker to a better quality brand in hopes that it would last a bit longer. I tried Ridgid, with not much better results than the previous brands, and also burned out a DeWalt cordless drill in less than a year...

I finally discovered the Milwaukee M18 Tools, which has given me a solid set of cordless tools that I just can't seem to break. I've had them for nearly 3 years of fairly heavy use. The reason for that brief history is to show that I tend to judge these tools mostly based on long-term reliability; and, also to show that my benchmark for reliability is currently the Milwaukee M18 tools.

At this point, I've been using the Bosch combo for about 2 weeks while I've been completing the final stages of my new workshop. This is the stage where cordless drills and drivers see heavy use since I've been building shelves, benches, installing wall systems, etc...

Now that I've had a couple of weeks, here are the things I like about the Bosch drill & impact driver:

1) The ergonomics of this set are absolutely amazing! The grips are comfortable and the drill angle is perfect for reaching weird angles (a definite improvement over the Milwaukee for me). Both tools are also just a bit more compact than the Milwaukee tools I'm used to.

Verified Purchase
Gave my Milwaukee 18v cordless drill to my son ... it was "too much" for the amount of use I give it, and he just bought a house (fixer-upper). So, I needed a set for myself.

DeWalt gets a lot of promotion, and it's a good company. Buying DeWalt, IOW, is a matter of shopping very carefully to make sure you don't get burned. Ryobi as a brand ... well, that's typical Orange Box stuff. Did someone say plastic gears? A little better than Harbor Freight, perhaps. But then I saw my corded drill, a Bosch, and remembered all the things I liked about it: Small, lots of torque, always reliable. So after checking all the reviews here & elsewhere, I went with the Bosch 18v cordless drill & driver combo.

What a great choice! Both the drill and impact driver are a few ounces lighter than the Milwaukee, and there's ample battery for everything I've thrown at it so far. The LED light on the drill is in a little funky place -- see other comments here -- but it's something that grows on you quickly. (Having the illumination offset like that is better for viewing in a lot of cases.) And as far as specs go, both the drill and driver have MORE torque power than the Milwaukee. The battery life is rated less (than Milwaukee), but you can buy extended-life rechargeables that snap into the same places on the tool and charger. And replacement/spare batteries are a lot cheaper than the Red tool.

So: if you're a homeowner, this is a perfect set. If you're a contractor needing serious reliable equipment, consider this ... if a Milwaukee is "1" on your scale, this is probably a "1.05", and the cost of ownership over its lifetime is maybe 40% less.
