Enormous Power for Smaller Size
The Bosch DDS181-02 Compact Tough Drill/Driver provides operators with a small head and light weight, but this cordless drill/driver delivers when it comes to muscle. With two speed settings – one for high torque (0-500 rpm) and one for high drilling speed (0-1,700 rpm) – this dynamo is perfect for installers and construction workers who need performance in both drilling and fastening applications. It has a four-pole open-frame motor and 18+1 clutch settings, making this cordless drill a multitalented machine for heavy-duty drilling applications in materials ranging from wood to metal.
Great for Cramped or Overhead Work
The Bosch DDS181-02 Drill/Driver has a 7.28-inch head, the smallest in its class, helping it fit into the tightest spaces. And at 3.4 pounds, this tool is ideal for overhead drilling – especially into studs or metal. This electric drill comes with a slim-grip handle and a variable-speed trigger to provide additional user comfort. The 1/2-inch auto-lock metal keyless chuck allows for convenient one-handed bit changes, and it has LED lighting to for illumination in confined, dark work spaces.
Dynamic Torque in a Lightweight Package
The Bosch 25618 1/4-Inch Hex Impact Driver combines a short head with a large amount of torque for an impressive amount of muscle in restricted areas. The head length of this tool is 5.7 inches, and the motor produces 1,500 in.-lbs. of torque, enough for remodelers or electricians to do the job in tight conditions. This cordless driver provides has 2,800 rpm and 3,200 bpm for performance; it can drive a 3-inch by 1/4-inch lag bolt into a pressure-treated 4x4 in less than four seconds.
These two tools feature electronic motor and cell protection, which stops overheating and overloading by controlling the discharge current and the temperature of the battery pack to preprogrammed limits. This extends tool life and runtime and increases battery lifetime by more than 400 percent. The tools are constructed from Durashield housing, an ABS/nylon composite that makes the casing flexible on impact. This housing is proven tough, having been tested to endure 25 drops from 12 feet high onto solid concrete.

- 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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
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.
