Adapt with Socket-Ready Ease
The Bosch IDH182-01L Socket-Ready impact driver provides the operator with the best in adaptability – and eliminates the hassle of broken socket adapters. Quickly and seamlessly switch from a 1/4-inch quick change hex and a 1/2-inch square drive chuck for sockets, for two tools in one package.

The motor also requires no maintenance. It also has intelligent electronic cell and motor protection to help prevent overheating and overloading.
Hammer and Anvil System
The Bosch-built hammer and anvil system delivers maximum impact endurance and increased tool performance in wood and metal fastening applications. To complete tougher applications with maximum efficiency, the Bosch IDH182 delivers 1,650 in.-lbs. of torque, making it the most powerful impact driver in its class. Adjust tool speed and torque with a push of a button to maximize power or minimize fastener damage with the Bosch Performance Control System. It includes a variable speed trigger for even more control.
Power and Control
The Bosch IDH182-01L is powered by the two included FatPack batteries, which provide up to 50 percent more runtime over standard lithium-ion batteries, and a lithium-ion charger. The battery system is compatible with Bosch 18-Volt Lithium-Ion battery and charger. The impact driver is designed with the smallest grip diameter, for impressive ergonomics, and it is lighted by a three-LED design.
Top Customer Reviews
If you compare the two drivers, you should buy this. Here's why:
1. More torque. 1650 in-lbs vs 1350 in-lbs. The older tool promotes the lower torque as a benefit...it won't snap small screws as easily, but come on...neither would something powered by a couple of D-cells.
2. Electronic speed control. The IDH 182 has three variable speed ranges, selected by a button on the base. The IDH has one speed range.
3. Light switch. It's a minor thing, but the IDH has a on-off switch for the LEDs. The IDS's turn on when you pull on the trigger. That's better than not having them at all, but you really need the light when you can't easily see what you're doing and trying to get the tip of the driver into the screw slot. A switch makes more sense.
4. 1/2" square shaft. You can always use a 1/4" hex -> 1/2" adapter (or a 1/4" -> 3/8"" adapter, for that matter) in the IDS, but it just isn't the same. A direct 1/2" drive is much more reliable.
Any negatives? Just a couple...
1. Cost. The IDH is more expensive. If you rarely need to use a 1/2" socket, the IDS with an adapter works fine. And right now, if you already have some 18v Bosch batteries, the battery-less version is an absolute bargain. (Bosch Bare-Tool IDS181BL 18-volt Lithium-Ion Compact Tough 1/4-Inch Hex Impact Driver with L-BOXX-2 and Exact-Fit Insert Tray)
2. The 1/2" shaft lacks the ball that fits into the detent in the socket.Read more ›
The "hybrid" or "dual use" chuck is one heck of a great feature, whomever at Bosch thought of it; good on you (or them). Now, to be clear this tool is NOT an impact wrench, it doesn't have the torque to bust loose lug nuts or tighten structural bolts. However, eliminating the need for an adapter is great, and this tool has no problem driving lag screws up to 1/2" diameter even without a pilot hole. I always drill a pilot hole to prevent splitting of the wood, but tested this tool with and without one. Without a pilot hole took longer of course and the tool had a little more trouble, but still I was able to drive 1/2"x3" lag screws into fir.
I also tested this tool on alder, a soft hardwood and it had zero problem driving in deck screws (#9x3.5" w/ type 17 point). It drove standard drywall screws of various lengths as well without issue. Without and with pilot holes. I tested the power by tightening a grade 2, 5/16" bolt against a piece of steel with a nut and kept going until the head sheared off. So, for me, this has enough power for the jobs I'll use it for.
What else is great about it? The lights can be turned off via a switch at the base and the power can be varied there as well. The 3 settings allow you to match the power and speed to the job at hand. The belt clip is great and a handy necessity. The fact that it has a brushless motor means more power, better efficiency, longer life, and no maintenance.Read more ›
I confess though, this this is really great. I'll mostly use it for driving screws in my workshop and it will allow me to have my two drills set up for drilling pilot holes and countersinking, which I do often. Despite being an 18v class driver, this tool is quite light, short-nosed and maneuverable. It can get in tighter spots than the little Bosch 12v lithium drill I use most of the time, which is about half the size of one of the older style 18 volt drills.
I'm a fan of the L-Boxxes already and use them for carrying fasteners, nailers, and the of course a couple of Bosch tools. There's a lot of extra room in the Lboxx the driver comes in. If you wanted to carry 1/2" sockets I suppose a good size set could fit in there too. I should note that I am a woodworker of the most serious class of craftsmen and when I am working out of a truck I want to get in and out as quickly and neatly as possible. Stacking storage boxes help with that. I like the L-Boxxes with some reservations in relation to the similar Tanos/Festool Systainers because the L-Boxxes are both larger and cheaper. Overall, Bosch offers more tool for your dollars than Festool, except where Festool has one of its many superior patent positions.
I have held off on investing in Lithium-ion tools. At this point, I'll have to say that this latest brushless iteration from Bosch is a mature technology and if you're looking for an 18v lithium platform to commit to, this one is impressive.Read more ›
