DDS181AB 18V Compact Tough 1/2 In. Drill/Driver (Bare Tool)

18V Compact Tough 1/2 In. Drill/Driver (Bare Tool)

Product Description


The Bosch DDS181A Compact Tough 1/2 In. Drill/Driver features Bosch's efficient, lighter canned motor, an innovation that gives the drill/driver the same power with lighter weight and a more compact design. It delivers powerful performance, with 600 In.-Lbs. of torque and two drilling speeds (0-1,900 RPM for high speed and 0-500 RPM for torque). The heavy-duty chuck allows for increased robustness and greater torque transfer, and the keyless auto-lock feature allows for one-handed bit changes. This cordless drill was engineered with the Bosch Compact Tough design for the shortest head-length in class (7.5 In. long) and a weight of only 2.6 Lbs. This is a durable and beefy drill that can power through the toughest materials, and it has an Electronic Motor Protection system to protect it from overload. It's built with an LED for visibility in hard-to-see areas. This kit is a bare tool offering; the battery is sold separately.
