Maximum Power in a Compact Size
The DDS180-02 is optimized to work at two speeds--one for high-torque applications (0-500 RPM) and one for high-speed applications (1,700 RPM). 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). The DDS181 drill body is part of the DDS180-02 kit.
Ergonomic and Comfortable
This drill/driver's Durashield housing is constructed with ABS/nylon composite, which makes the housing flexible on impact. Unlike competitive tools, which use a conventional plastic housing, Durashield will not crack and can easily withstand 10-foot drops.
The ergonomically designed handle and soft-grip wrapped housing offer a comfortable fit for extended working time. The ergonomic grip zone on this drill/driver has the smallest diameter in the market that enables improved gripping and comfort for longer jobs. In addition, the new drive train design increases user comfort because of the modified orientation relative to the handle. The DDS180-02 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
Like all tools in Bosch's 18-volt line, this drill/driver can be used with either a 1.3 Ah lithium-ion SlimPack battery (model BAT609), a 2.6-Ah lithium-ion FatPack battery (model BAT618), or a 3.0 Ah lithium-ion FatPack HC 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.
The DDS180-02 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.
