Ready for all heavy-duty drilling applications in materials from wood to brick to concrete, the lightweight and compact Bosch HDH181-01 Brute Tough 18-volt lithium-ion 1/2-inch cordless hammer drill/driver delivers top performance with strong power and runtime to maximize your efficiency on the job site. It works with all Bosch 18-volt lithium-ion batteries, and this kit includes two Fat Pack 3.0 Ah HC (high-capacity) batteries. They provide up to 50 percent more runtime over standard lithium-ion batteries and include an electronic battery fuel gauge to ensure you have enough power for the job.
Fast Speeds and High Torque
Part of the Bosch Brute Tough series, the HDH181-01 works at two beefy speeds--up to 420 RPM and up to 1,800 RPM--and it provides a maximum of 700 inch-pounds of torque. The 4-pole open frame motor and newly developed gearbox provide exceptional power. The 25+1 clutch settings included in this Brute Tough model and a variable-speed trigger help you match the best speed to the job, so you can achieve precise results.
Balanced Design and Easy Bit Changes
The HDH181-01's Durashield housing is constructed with ABS/nylon composite, which makes the housing flexible upon impact. Unlike competitive tools, which use a conventional plastic housing, Durashield will not crack and can easily withstand 12-foot drops.
The aluminum keyless 1/2-inch keyless chuck with Bosch Auto-Lock makes bit changes simple and quick with one hand--plus, its reduced nose weight enhances the balanced feel without reducing durability. The ergonomically designed handle and soft-grip wrapped housing offer a comfortable fit for extended working time. And for even greater convenience, LEDs provide illumination when you are working in dark or enclosed areas.
Flexible Power System
In addition to the 3.0 Ah HC lithium batteries included in this kit, this drill/driver can be used with can be used with Bosch's standard-capacity batteries from its 18-volt line--including the 1.3 Ah Slim Pack battery (model BAT609), the 1.5 Ah Slim Pack HC (model BAT610G), and the 2.6-Ah Fat Pack battery (model BAT618). If you're looking for a lightweight option, the Slim Pack is the perfect choice. If longer runtime is what you need, the Fat Pack will do the job.
The HDH181-01 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.

I purchased the HDH181-01 for a specific job. I had four (4) 3/8" x 5" anchor holes to drill for a ledger at the top of the stairs and three (3) more holes into a footer half way down the stairs. I did not want to purchase a tool that is dedicated to only drilling holes in concrete, which I do very little of. The HDH181-01 appeared to be a good choice, because I could use it for a heavy duty driller also. An additional feature was the 18V Fat Pack batteries that come with the HDH181-01. The Fat Pack batteries also fit some of my other Bosch products.
How did the HDH181-01 do with my project? It was amazingly fast! It took about one (1) minute for each hole. I now use it for a heavy duty driller and it works great as a driller also.
Bosch gets an A+ for another fine product.
Tool King got me the product within a week from ordering and they had the best price I could find at $236.88 shipped to my door. A+ Tool King!
The selector switch for high torque and high speed was an easy miss at first, but now I check it every time. It seemed like my old 12v Black and Decker could drill a hole faster than this beast could, I was utterly shocked, until I found the switch on top and switched it to high speed. The rate at which I drilled through a 1/4 steel plate actually frightened me, I was through that plate before I even had a chance to react and marred the worktable surface beneath it pretty darn good.
This drill has a lot of heft to it, but it's also perfectly balanced, not too heavy up top and not too heavy in the battery, so using it in awkward positions is actually quite comfortable. The chassis of the whole drill just feels so solid. The trigger is smooth and it's easy to hit and hold the RPMs that you're aiming for. The light is perfectly positioned to illuminate the work area without getting blocked by your hands or workpieces. The case it comes in is even of quality construction, and two batteries and a beefy charger will keep you working many hours before even having to think about hanging it up for the day.
On price, it's definitely up there.Read more ›
They are all using the same batteries.
Excellent tools performance,
Batteries last a long time, and they're much lighter than ni-cad.
This Bosch is a 2 speed cordless hammer drill with trigger-based led lighting to help illuminate your drill site. Perhaps the led light could be considered dubious, but there are many times when I'm drilling in adequate light and the shadow of a drill can make it difficult to see your workspace. The led light eliminates that problem. It always turns on with the motor, and it has been very useful in my experience with it. One spec that I really liked, when comparing to my Dewalt, is that the Bosch is a lighter weight drill. My Dewalt is around 5.5 pounds, and this Bosch is just under 5 pounds. Just half a pound you say? Yep, but it does make a difference when you're slinging it around or working at odd angles. The lighter weight was a pleasure to use, and it causes me to never give thought to the weight of the drill when using it. I've done a few small home projects with the Bosch, and I have to say that I'm very impressed with the long battery life and the power. The Bosch is rated up to 700 inch-pounds of torque, which is really good for a cordless.Read more ›
