The Bosch DDS183-02 18V EC Brushless Compact Tough 1/2 in. Drill/Driver Kit has a drill with KickBack Control, Bosch's integrated acceleration sensor that automatically shuts the tool down when a potentially dangerous rotational torque reaction occurs in a bind-up scenario. This reduces the risk of sudden tool reactions in binding conditions.The drill was engineered with an upgraded, heavy-duty all-metal chuck that allows for increased robustness and great torque transfer. Its efficient EC Brushless motor provides longer tool life as well as great runtime. One of Bosch's Compact Tough designs, the drill has a short head-length and light weight but plenty of muscle. It delivers a powerful performance, with 531 in-lbs. of torque, two drilling speeds (0 to 1,900 RPM for high speed and 0 to 600 RPM for torque) and 20+1 clutch settings for reduced fastener damage.This tool provides an ergonomic grip zone and Bosch's Electronic Motor Protection and Electronic Cell Protection, to protect the tool and batteries from overload and overheating. The kit includes two 18V 2.0 Ah SlimPack batteries and a charger, as well as a long belt clip for a secure hold.

Great Product
Does exactly what it needs to do, and does it well. The batteries last a long time. It's the perfect drill to have in the house.

I own 5 Bosch drills and this is my favorite! The brushless motor powers through anything I put in its way! Great purchase:

This is the best for me! I own several 18v battery platforms and after using and trying out several different colors of compact drills I have chosen this one and never looked back. I would buy again in an instant. I LOVE the new handle. I found another brand's handle grip I liked equally as well while shopping but this drill has a much better head angle in relation to the handle. The drill is so light, small, powerful and has an amazing chuck with zero slop. I mostly use my 12v Bosch drills and drivers in a professional atmosphere but there are times when I need more power. The variable speed trigger has extreme control, especially when in 1st gear but 2nd gear is really nice for slow turning fasteners as well. The clutch on this drill is the best I've ever used. The drill stops driving about 1/10 second after the clutch engages and gives very consistent results from what I've experienced. I love that its fast and powerful enough for self drilling metal fasteners in thick steel and also has a really great clutch sensitive enough for small fasteners in soft wood. I've had my hand broken from a powerful drill binding in tough material so I really love the anti-kickback feature on this as well.
