      I generally use it for quick jobs involving drilling into wood and installing screws and bolts. Works very well and I like the ability to select the torque when using it as a screw driver.

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

        I own more than a few Bosch tools,cordless and corded power tools.Bosch has a reputation in the pro/contractor world of being the best and there is a reason for it and that is the same reason I own Bosch tools.
        Their customer service is outstanding,the quality,life span and craftmanship is the best.
        I own Porter Cable,Dewalt,Sears,Ryobi,Makita and Milwaukee tools and I put Bosch ahead of all them.

        The Bosch recondtioned tools I recently purchased from CPO are like new without the new price from the big chain stores, 5 stars for CPO.

            These reconditioned units are really a great value. My drill looked brand-new in every way and with full factory warranty. Instead of waiting for a summer sale or Black Friday deals from the large box stores I decided to give a reconditioned unit A try from CPO. Glad I did.

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

              I am using this drill for an extensive remodelling project involving framing, plumbing and electrical work. Have used this drill with 4" hole saws, driving 3" deck screws and in tight spots between floor joists. It did not disappoint! Light in weight but rugged with plenty of torque when needed. Easy to change drill bits that did not slip in the chuck. The battery life is exceptional. Would highly recommend this drill for the pro, the serious DIY or the "weekend warrior".

              New Vs. 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 accessories or consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
              • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by CPO’s Money Back Guarantee;
                New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.
