About the DDS181 Drill/Driver
This 18-volt Bosch drill operates with fast speeds, high torque, and durable construction. It has two optimized speeds–one ideal for high-torque applications (0-500 RPM) and one ideal for high-speed applications (0-1,700 RPM)–and 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. The ergonomically designed handle and soft-grip wrapped housing offer a comfortable fit for extended working time.The DDS181-02 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.
In addition to the 1.5 Ah HC lithium batteries included in this kit, this drill/driver can be used with Bosch’s batteries from its 18-volt line–including the 1.3 Ah SlimPack battery (model BAT609), the 2.6 Ah FatPack battery (model BAT618), and the 3.0 Ah HC FatPack 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.
About the 25618 Impact Fastening Driver
Bosch has developed a new line of impactors that have faster performance for increased productivity. This driver is part of that new line, and attributed to the lithium-ion batteries, is up to 27-percent faster than comparable cordless impact drivers and impact wrenches. In the demanding world of metal fastening and serial screw driving applications, the increase in speed means a significant boost to productivity. The Bosch impact driver is capable of driving a 3-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. The driver also has a dynamic torque with variable speed trigger for optimal control. The 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 (125 feet-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, so it won’t overtax arm or hand muscles. At 5-3/4-inches long and 3-1/3 pounds, this impact driver is one of the most compact on the market. It is also incredibly user friendly to help save time and reduce fatigue, rather you are a professional or novice user. In addition to its compact size, the driver features a spring-loaded impact mechanism to reduce user fatigue. A 1/4-inch hex drive makes for fast, easy bit changes, while externally accessible brushes make replacements easy. Also, to help out in dark corners or other low-light areas, the driver provides a built-in LED light for instant illumination.
