Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best cordless product on the market [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I've built approx 25 boat docks with this screw gun and original battery, still good strong!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Diappointed I purchased this drill 3 year ago when starting a deck project. It drilled half of my anchor bolts (approx 10) then just quit. I returned it for warranty claim which turned out to not be easy or quick, after 6 months I got the drill back. Apparently it was a faulty switch and worked as intended after return. I have not used it frequently or heavily. The last time I was using it, it got rather warm and intermittently shut down. It started smoking and I have not tried using it since. I am out of warranty now and doubtful a repair would make economic sense. I also am not interested in getting it back in 6 months. Really bummed that I thought I had bought a tough, quality product but was sadly disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very smooth dill! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Amazing drill, smooth, quick, and the best part, safety that protects you from a bind. I love that sense of security.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Barely made it a year I bought this factory reconditioned, never seemed "tougher" than my 10 year old dewalt it replaced but was a nice drill. It died when I attempted to drill 4 1 1/2 inch holes through four 2x4's to run a water line. Prior to that I had mostly used it for screws and small concrete anchors. It literally started to smoke after the third hole. Of course I never registered it just incase they would extend some sort of warranty. Guess I get to fix it myself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent tool I purchased my Bosch Cordless Hammer drill/driver about 6 weeks ago. This was to replace a 2 year old model from one of their competitors. The Bosch is well balanced and fits well in my hand. These things really make a difference. We completed a small but labor intensive project over Christmas vacation and the drill/driver performed superbly. Battery life well exceeded my expectations. I compared several manufacturer's and feel confident that purchasing the Bosch HDH181X-01 Drill/Driver was a smart decision.

Felt well balanced with the large battery installed. I also installed the side handle for drilling on an extension ladder. The side handle works great. Easily adjusted with a few twists. I used this for all the smaller holes for tapcons. Mounting junction boxes. I would like to have seen a clip mounted on the base to clip to my tool belt or pouch, as the 1/2" drill/driver does. This kit came with the soft briefcase style bag, but I moved everything over to my 32" toolbox.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive Everyone needs a big Bosch chuck/hammer drill, so I bought this with the intention of having a good versatile tool to last me a while. You can tell that this thing is well made and has heft to it. It has a crisp speed change button on the top, a work light right above where the battery is located, and just feels smooth to operate - it isn't clumsy feeling. I haven't actually used it for anything other than drilling holes in all sorts of things. But I have a few suggestions though that I hope bosch will listen to: 1) The labeling of the hammer drill and clutch wheel should not be done with paint. Mine have easily been scratched off and I don't even use it that much. They should be indented in some way into the metal to make them permanently labeled. 2) This drill should come with a pocket clip, and clip bolt holes on each side of the drill for ambidextrous use. 3) Fix the wobbly/mis-aligned chuck. My Bosch hammer drill is the same way. When you are drilling, the bit (drill bit, nut setter, anything) wobbles a good amount. Now this doesn't really affect performance, but it's what separates the wheat from the chaff in terms of drills. With as impressive as your drills are, I'm surprised that your drills have this wobble. 4) Have a level on the back of the drill (I noticed a craftsman drill had this feature), which of course makes drilling straight up and down, or completely horizontal much easier. 5) Make the steadying ring (at the end of the chuck) longer and more bulky. It's too small to really be a effective. But is a great idea and should be exploited. Y'all seriously could make this THE drill for any contractor to have. It already is a ubiquitous tool with the beefy hammer drill action and active response technology, and with those features added to it, there'd be nothing else out there like it with so much packed into one drill.
