Bosch DDB181 Compact 18v Drill/Driver

Published on Oct 26, 2014

The Bosch DDB181 is the newest tool in their 18v lineup, and is geared to be a compact drill/driver that weighs the same as a 12v tool, with the power of an 18v one.

For everyday use or the DIYer, this may be a good solution since it is so lightweight & easy to use. It comes in right at 3lbs, and won’t make your wrist or arm nearly as sore as a full sized drill….but will still have the power you need to get the job done.

I tested it drilling through a variety of materials & with a mixture of different bits, and the drill performed great. It is definitely designed for maximum performance when drilling smaller holes (1/2″ or less), but even with the larger ones I drilled (up to 1 1/2″) it went through them with no problems at all.

Luckily since it is compatible with all the other Bosch 18v batteries, you can swap some 4.0ah packs onto it & they are going to power it the exact same way…only with much longer runtimes.
