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.

As for power the drill has effortlessly done everything I've tried so far. It doesn't have a lot of torque at lower speeds however. The only complaint I have about the drill is the little rubber bit holders are entirely useless-everything falls out right away.
The Impact driver works great. Somehow the way it works it is a lot harder to strip the screw heads and when I went back to a drill I was stripping them like crazy because I was used to how the impactor works. I really like the belt clip although it could be a little longer. When I was trying to put some 1/4" thick 3" lag bolts in it kept breaking them! (Not really a problem you just have to take it easy on them but it shows the impactor's power.) However the specs about the impact driver having three times the torque of the drill seem a little unreal. The drill seems to have as much or more torque than the impact. For example I was trying to put a screw through a deer antler which is really hard and it got stuck and the impactor couldn't move it any more but then I tried the drill and it did it.
The only complaint I have about the impact is the noise - it's really loud. I feel like I should wear hearing protection whenever I'm using or near it but all impacts I've used are like that.
Batteries are light weight and small (1.3ish amps) and proportionately short on battery life.Read more ›
On a shipping, note. Bosch does not package their stuff well. The drill had the battery already attached and was loose in the box. Also, the bits were loose and the impactor is in a box that looks like it is fastened with scotch tape.
I spent a long time researching/looking for a new drill. I am quite happy with this combo and how many accessories that bosch provides.
One more thing. I did not get the reconditioned version. Mine were new.
After having used both the drill and impactor for some time, all I have to say is WOW. I used my old dewalt to screw some shelves and it stripped every screw. The Impactor worked great, drove the screws with very little effort and didn't strip any of them. The kit has worked great. It's light and the batteries seem to last forever.

So yea it's there. It's about a 1/32" wobble on the drill, and upwards of a 1/16" on the impact driver. How is this ok? My Makita drill, which I left a review for years ago on Amazon, was recently stolen at a job, so I wanted to try something new, and for the price, this drill was hard to beat. This was my train of thought during the pricing and purchase process.
I don't think I want this drill. I am not sure whether I will return it yet or not, as I really need a drill ASAP, and have been lugging around a monster hole hog, which is corded. It does not work for tight spaces, about 18" or smaller, so I need this drill.
Also, other things I noticed, is yes, the bit holder on the drill is useless. I already almost lost the bit after moving the drill, not even carrying it. It just falls out. And why is there no belt clip on the drill, but the impact driver has one for right and left handed people? Seriously... I can see myself dropping this thing off a ladder because of this. I can always jerry-rig one up, but I expected more from Bosch I guess. Also, the light does not stay on for a brief moment after the trigger is let go. That really sucks. I'm always in a crawlspace and depend on my drill for a light, which Makita was great for. I don't like using my headlamp as it is filthy, and my forehead is usually sweaty. The light will, on the other hand, stay lit, if you ever so lightly press on the button.Read more ›
