I purchase the tool ...
from Dallas, TX, United States
I purchase the tool almost a year ago, It was not much more than the previous generation and I thought the Brushless motor would be nice, especially since i have the old one (HDS181) and it works great still, but I'm worried since it got left out a few times when we were sanding drywall and or hardwood floors, and the dust literally COATED the entire tool a few times. It works great still, and the new one is as reliable, but more powerful. we remodel old homes, and this does everything from pre-drilling holes, to boring through 2x 3x studs and joists for plumbing etc, and drywall. Anything and everything is a breeze. When boring hols on the ladder, you have to be careful, the tool has a lot of torque, and it will spin you right off the latter if you're not careful. USE THE CLUTCH and wear a wrist brace. Power is good, the light is great in dark spots, and the clutch is easy to modulate. The weight is well balanced in your hand, and the hook it came with was large and sturdy, and METAL. Have not had any issues with it outside of a random stop when i go on and off the trigger rapidly, but that not an issue rally, just stop, press the trigger again and you're off to the races again. I purchase this kit, because of the LBOXX, it was my first. I purchase the impact driver later with a molded insert, and now both tools live in the same box. Overall a great tool, it was my third Bosch, but my second cordless, i have the previous generation HDS181, and it was misplaced for a month or so, so i replaced it. I found the old one a week after the new arrived, and they are pretty much interchangeable. the new one looks nice and new, otherwise i cant tell much of a difference in everyday use.
Exceeded my expectations
from Asheville, NC, United States
I have had this drill for about 4 months and, like my other Bosch tools, it has exceeded my expectations. It has more torque than my old 18v drill and the brushless technology is great because my battery life seems to be about double what I've had with any other cordless tool. Once a battery is charged, I unplug the charger and then use the one on the drill until it goes down. I am a retired Engineer who does a LOT of building projects around the house -so I use this tool almost every day. I have dropped the drill by mistake and it shows no wear not malfunction. Well made!
from California, United States
I have had this drill for about 7 months and it is one of the best hand tools I use. I have used it to build a deck, home maintenance projects, and many other jobs. I have my own landscape and maintenance business, and I tell everyone it is one of the best investments I have made. It is powerful, reliable, easy to use, and charges quickly.
