    Brute Tough!!

    By Cujo

    from Palm Coast, FL, United States

    Comments about Bosch 18V Cordless Lithium-Ion Compact Tough 1/2 in. Drill Driver with 2 Fat Pack HC Batteries:

    I work in the construction industry, our company provides us with overpriced (yellow) tools. I choose to use my own Bosch tools instead. 3 days after I bought this drill I accidently dropped it from my boom lift... 80ft. in the air! It thumped a beam about 20 feet down and plummeted the rest of the way down to the ground. I thought for sure it was broken. I got down to the ground inspected it, NOT EVEN A CRACK! Squeezed the trigger, it worked, and so I got back to work. The day before this happened a co-worker dropped his (yellow) drill from 20 feet up and it shattered into 3 pieces. At the end of the day (when I dropped it) I told our foreman to tell the higher ups to buy Bosch and these kinds of things won't happen. Bragging rights forever. Never disappointed with Bosch.

    • 18V Cordless Lithium-Ion Compact Tough 1/2 in. Drill Driver with 2 Fat Pack HC Batteries

      Q:

      What is the difference between a 1/2" BOSCH HDS181-01, 02, or 03? I have a HDS181 3601H67110 I bought from CPO and it must have a break in continuity in the trigger. The light comes on but will not run most of the time. Would send it back but I kicked a bucket of paint and it has a lot of paint on it. Would like to replace the gun only. I see you do have them with out the battery.

        A:

        The difference is the HDS181-01 includes 2-18V Fat Pack HC Lithium-Ion 3.0 Ah Batteries with Fuel Gauge. Were as the HSA181-02 includes 2-18V Slim Pack HC Lithium-Ion 1.5 Ah Batteries with Fuel Gauge. Other than the batteries they are the both drill/driver.

    New Vs. Reconditioned

    What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

    Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
    • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
    • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
    • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.
