1/2 inch cordless drill driver
I used this item today to drive some wood screws. It certainly has the power/torque to drive 2" screws

When order tool from this company, you hope and pray it works otherwise they give you so much run around, create so much headache for you and at the end still scam your money.

Works Hard; Rests Comfortably
I'm about to turn 70, with a 175 year-old house and have finally retired a Wen ("Made in Chicago" drill bought with the house, 38 years ago...it smelled funny. Being a Teutonic fan (BMWs, Volkls, Braun, etc.) I automatically gravitated to the Bosch. And I'm glad I did. I charged one of its batteries 7 months ago, have used it several times for driving big screws and other repetitive chores. Just now, I checked that same battery and it's still "Full".

It's very comfortable to hold and run, it is easy to adjust power, the lighting is great, the batteries hold their charge and the case does a good job of holding two bit cases, the extra battery and all but the charger. In sum, I'm persuaded that this will be my best and last drill.

What is the ampere hour rating on the slim pack batteries, or how long do they last before needing recharge? Thanks for your input.
A shopper on Dec 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The battery pack is marked 2.0Ah. I've had mine since july only doing a few light projects I haven't had to recharge it yet and this is mid Dec. If you are building a deck and putting in thousands of 4in screws you'll get at least an hour on a charge depending on the weather. This is based on my last Bosch drill, they do hold a charge for a very long time.
How much is drill and battery weigh?
A shopper on Dec 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Model DDS181-02 weighs 6.90 lbs.
Probably the the toughest job I would ask of this drill is removing and replacing deck boards. Is this drill adequate for that?
Need a drill on Mar 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No, this would not be adequate for removing deck boards
