Best Drill I Have Ever Used
I have used or owned each of the other big brand names in drills. The Bosch 36V with Fat Pack batteries is in a class above any of the competition.

The weight is about equal to the NiCAD 18v cordless drills but you get exceptional run time and high torque not possible from any other brand of cordless drill.

This drill is the first one I have found that the bits run true and don't wobble when running. Important when trying to drive stubborn deck screws or stainless screws into hardwood flooring so you get the head into the countersunk position without rounding out the drive slots in the screw head.

The speed adjustments are perfect for driving screws or drilling pilot/countersink holes in hardwood. The trigger is smooth and does let me bring the speed up gradually.

The power is great! I have mixed Thinset with this when 1/2 inch corded drills couldn't handle the torque needed.

I have sold my other cordless drills once I got this and saw how versatile and better quality the Bosch 36v drill is.

Very powerful drill motor
I use this tool in a custom cabinet shop and in the home when installing cabinets. A very good tool, although a bit heavy, but that is expected in a quality tool

The Envy of Any Worksite!
I have never loved a tool this much! So glad I bought it. The 36V fat-pack batteries charge super fast, the tool retains full, amazing speed and power till the battery is fully drained, and once recharged, the batteries hold their charge for a really long time when not in use. Six months later? Full power. So nice! The only caveat is that it's a bruiser. Smaller-framed users might want to select a lighter-weight option.

My first Bosch Tool and I love it.
This was my Bosch trial run tool. I was trying to decide on a power tool manufacture to go with when it came to my standard handheld and bench-top power tools and this drill was the deciding factor . I am very particular when it come to my tooling purchases. I was extremely impressed with the power this drill has and how it is an adequate corded drill alternative. If there was any area of concern it would be in the mounting and securing methodology of the motor and drivetrain. My reason is upon inspection of the unit's construction I discovered the drivetrain assembly is held in its orientation to the case by the form of the injection molded casing. Instead of that being the only medium of security they should secure the motor and drivetrain by using either the already used case screws to act as alignment pins and/or used a similar configuration to the HDH181-01 were the gear box is in a fixed position to the case. This will prevent cases from splitting due to the motor and gear box from rotating within the casing as has been an issue some times with past cordless drills (Non-Bosch.

Lasts like I used to!
I have now owned this drill for 5 years. It is used almost daily for drilling through steel, wood, concrete, granite, glass, my list can keep on going almost as long as the drill has been. I did have it rebuilt about 2 years ago for about half the cost of a new one. It has been used as a hammer drill for hours on end, one day, drilling over 60 holes in 5,000 psi concrete each one 3/4" x 10" deep. It did all that with about 3-1/2 batteries! Its been dropped from ladders and stairs and still performs like a pro linebacker! It's not the lightest tool in the box but its worth every ounce.

powerful beast that lasts forever
I bought this powerdrill to frame studs in the basement. It takes no power on my part to drill a 1 inch hole through 2x4's. Anchoring on the concrete floor takes time but still gets the job done. The 36V battery lasts forever.
