At a Glance
DDS180-02 Compact Tough Drill/Driver
The Bosch DDS180-02 is powerful, ergonomic, and versatile (click to enlarge).

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.

ProVantage Guarantee
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.

I purchased this drill at Lowe's. As of June 5th, 2011 They must have an exclusive because no one else stocks it and it is not even listed on the Bosch website (US) as I write this review.

Details not listed on the web: Max Torque: 600 in/lbs., Speed: 500/1700 rpm, Chuck: Rohm brand plastic ratcheting single sleeve (1/16-1/2" capacity), Accessories: Metal belt hook not shown in product photos (same as the impact driver belt hook). Case: Hard plastic (Not the L-Boxx). Made in Malaysia like most other Bosch cordless tools.

Of the four Bosch 18v lithium drills I own, this is my favorite design so far. It is very compact (7" long), well balanced, and powerful. It seems to weigh slightly more than the Bosch 36618-02 18-Volt 1/2-Inch Compact-Tough Litheon Drill/Driver with 2 Slim Batteries. When comparing the two, the DDS180 seems only slightly more powerful than the 36618. The DDS180 is faster in second gear, and seems to have more power. The 4-Pole motor has a higher pitched whine to it than the 36618, and runs slightly warmer when pushed hard. The new motor is an open frame design as opposed to the can type motor on the 36618. The cooling fan is very efficient and pushes a large amount of air through the vents.

As with other Bosch cordless drills, the electronic cell and motor protection shut the drill off when/if the bit jams or the drill begins to overheat. This has saved my wrist numerous times when turning large auger/self feed bits. It will easily turn a 1-1/4" Irwin Speedbore, and even a 2-1/8" forstner bit.

Bosch DDS180-02 18-Volt Compact Tough Drill Driver with 2 1.3Ah Batteries is the real deal. Researched long and hard before making a decision and was glad I ended up with the Bosch. It is extremely rugged and well built and fits the hand nicely and does not fatigue the hands under heavy constant use. The lithium ion batteries are a huge improvement over the old Ni Cad one that I was formerly using. They last longer and charge faster and are smaller and lighter. I highly recomend this drill.

I had two cordless DW drills that did a decent job, but were so heavy to use. I dropped one and decided to get another one. I did a lot of research and the prices for cordless drills was all over the place. It made me wonder what the main differance was between them. After looking at performance instead of price. I discovered that the Bosch DDS180 had the most in ft lbs (over 600) of torgue of anything on the market. So the fact that this Bosch came with two 18V Lithium-Ion batteries, fast charger and hard storage case sold me. This drill is awsom. It will drive screws like nothing you have ever used and the battery doesn't seem to go down. You can't go wrong buying this drill.
And the best price I found on the net was at Amazon. When checking prices make sure you are comparing prices for the drill, 2 batteries, and hard case. Jim Sanderson, Erie PA

Great drill. Unfortunately, I missed that Amazon is selling the newer version, the DDS181 for less. The 181 comes with better batteries and, as of now, is 20 dollars cheaper. Check it out before you buy this one!

The Bosch DDS180-02 arrived as stated; on time and ready to use. It was put to test quickly as we were
constructing a deck. It was remarkable in handling and in amount of time that the battery worked. The weight of the driver
was light but tough as we worked with it for several days. I am highly pleased and would recommend this tool highly.

Have not had long, but so far this thing is a jewel as far as tools go. For the power, it's lightweight and very well balanced. The reason I got this instead of a Dewalt was because this is so evenly balanced in your hand. The Dewalt was very front heavy. This one has great power and torque. The battery life seems long so far, and I love that it comes with 2 batteries so you can just swap out. The slimline battery saves a ton on weight and bulk. Granted, I'm coming off of having a BD cheapo drill for the last 10 years, but I am thoroughly impressed with this drill. I will not be able to go back to a lesser drill.

The Bosch DDS180-02 18volt lithium ion drill is great. After years of nickel cad battery drills losing charge while stored, it's nice to pick this one up multiple times during the first month for small projects and have it ready to go. Comfortable to use, powerful, light works great and charge holds. Still using first battery charged 30 days ago. Granted I haven't built a deck yet but it is ready when I need it. Very happy.

If you need a powerhouse drill as a handyman, this is the one. It's compact (with it's short barrel) to get into tight spaces and will loosen most any bolt when in full torque. I am 64, have had a lot of drills, and this is what I have been looking for. Whatever the project, the Bosch is there.
