Tool Ideal for Close Quarter Drilling and Screw Driving
Atlanta, August 22, 2012 – Bosch Power Tools is expanding its right angle drill lineup with the new Bosch ADS101 18-volt Cordless Lithium-ion HC Right Angle Drill. Delivering best-in-class chuck capacity, performance and ergonomics, the drill is designed especially for electricians, plumbers, installers, carpenters, remodelers and HVAC professionals who need a high performing, high capacity 18-volt right angle drill.
The ADS181 offers the largest chuck capacity in cordless right angle drills with its 1/2-inch ratcheting auto-lock chuck. This feature allows users to tackle the maximum range of applications from drilling to driving, and supports an expanded range of drill bits, including 1/2-inch mandrels, forstner bits, step drill bits, auger bits and the full range of drill index bits. Professionals will find many uses for the drill, including heavy-duty outer shell roughing and framing, standard-duty internal layout and installations and basic-duty finishing work.
The ADS181 also offers the most powerful motor among 18-volt cordless right angle drills to deliver 40 percent more torque – up to 160 inch-pounds – for increased tool performance and longer tool life.
High capacity Lithium-ion batteries power the tool through 42 percent more runtime than competitors. The ADS101 runs on the Flexible Power System of Bosch batteries, including both the 3.0-ah FatPack (ADS181-101) or 1.5-ah SlimPack (ADS181-102). Superior ergonomics are provided via a slim, soft grip design and an extended position trigger for comfort and control while in use. A compact head length of 4.6 inches allows for drilling and driving in close quarters, while an LED white light illuminates works areas from the base of the tool.
The ADS181 is constructed to survive real jobsite conditions and features all metal gear design and DuraShield housing to withstand accidental drops and heavy-duty applications. The tool also comes equipped with intelligent electronic protection to increase motor life (electronic motor protection) and battery lifetime (electronic cell protection). This maximizes tool and battery performance, runtime and lifetime.
The ADS181 is available now through authorized dealers nationwide for a suggested retail price of $199 for the ADS181-102 with SlimPack battery and $229 for the ADS181-101 with FatPack battery. To find out more or to locate a dealer, visit www.boschtools.com or call 877-BOSCH-99.
