I bought this to replace my old 12 yr old Bosch 18V Blue Core hammer drill. This DDS182-02 is GREAT. It has great speed as well as strength. I recently drilled over a dozen 1.5" holes through studs followed up by 2 dozen 1" holes and it blew threw them with no problem. The battery lasted for the whole project! The other thing nice about this one is the weight. It's very easy to use for a duration of time without becoming fatigued from the weight like other drills similar to it. The light is a nice plus as well. The only thing they could improve on is adding a driver bit holder

I Think I Got a Lemon
I bought this drill a few years ago. Unfortunately, it has developed a large degree of runout. I need precision in my work, meaning very little or no runout.

Utility in a compact design
Comments about Bosch Tools Brushless 1/2" Drill/Driver Kit:
I bought this a few weeks ago, already owning an 18v Bosch drill and driver. I like the brushless motor of the DDS182 and the stubby, more compact profile is handy when space is limited. The belt clip and bit holder are nice features as is the fuel gauge on the batteries.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This thing is a beast
from Fuquay Varina, NC, United States
I bought this drill over 2 years ago and the batteries still last forever. Seriously. I recharge the batteries before they even start dying. I also have an impact drill that uses the same batteries, which is awesome. I highly recommend this drill. My DeWalt batteries died and it would be cheaper to just buy a new drill than batteries. That's what led me to purchase this Bosch drill.
Bosch DDS182-02 Cordless Brushless Drill Review
Pros: Very good torque, strong as many corded drills, can drill with 1" spade bit with ease Good RPM Very smooth motor and noise level is much less then older cordless drills Con: Drill doesn't operate after reversing direction unless switch is cycled twice, I am hopeful that this will get better with more use, this is the only reason I didn't give it a 5 star.

Tried & tested! Gets the job done & then some!
from Richmond, VA, United States
I purchased this drill for work and am extremely happy that I did. It stays charged, I have experience no power loss, and it gets the job done- every time! It can be used all day and then some. It's an extremely durable drill as well!

Best Drill I have ever owned
from Winston-Salem, NC, United States
I have owned 2 Craftsman cordless drills before purchasing this one. The power of the batteries and battery life are amazing. I really like having the built in light - it is very helpful, especially in tight spaces. I will only purchase Bosch from now on.....
Just a guy that appreciates value
from South East Texas
I continue to buy Bosch tools like this one for all the same reasons. I am just a guy that likes to work on my projects. I do not have a budget for tools nor can I justify it by saying it is for work. But I know that when I spend my hard earned money on a Bosch tool it will be with me for more years than imaginable. I have tools well over 30 years old that are still running. The only reason for buying new ones is because they work even better than the originals. For me that says it all.
