18-Volt Compact Tough Lithium-Ion Drill/Driver Bare Tool (Tool Only) is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 34.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice drill/driver! I had to replace my older 18v drill/driver with this model following a car break-in a few years ago. It is a better tool than the Bosch 18v drill/driver it replaced on all counts. Ir is tougher, better-balanced, more powerful, easier to use, and it has both a 1/2-inch chuck and better Li-ion  batteries. And all of these improvements for almost the same price as the drill/driver  and jigsaw combo that it replaced.  Although the home--and the remodeling work for which the original 18v tool combo tools were purchased--are both now behind us, I use the new 36618-02 often and still appreciate its capabilities whenever I need a drill or driver.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most powerful drill I bought one of these drills about a year ago. It has been so awesome, I bought one for my son when he moved out. The batteries hold their power charge long after they are put away. Last fall the drill really showed its strength and power. My friends and I were putting a corn feeder bracket high up in a tree. A hole had to be drilled through the tree which was about 13" thick. my friends tried their drills but none would go through the tree with the auger bit. Finally they asked for the Bosch drill and it was able to drill through the tree. It took three other drill failures to show me just how powerful the Bosh drill really is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Drill on the Market. I'm using this drill at work, and I'm absolutely impressed by the built quality and battery life time of this drill. Don't get misled by the little capacity of the slim pack batteries - because this drill is very energy efficient so they are still lasting longer as their 1.5Ah counterparts from the competition. I like also the sensitive approach of the speed trigger, which allows to use speeds down to 10rpm. And last but not least the locking chuck - it really holds the drill bits tight - so no turning and damaging of your bits when the drill bit gets stuck. I tell all my friends: forget orange, yellow or red - go blue ;-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from durable tool after almost 3 years bought this drill in 2009 and have never looked back. i am a cabinet maker and a hobby mechanic i use this drill all day everyday and have dropped it plenty of times. with a full charge the torque is comparable to a corded drill at half the weight and ten times the mobility. my only grievance would be with the battery life but that is an unavoidable factor if my line of work. however i have purchased two extra batteries and with 4 total i can work for a solid day and a half without needing to charge any of them. all in all awesome tool and it reminds me every day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must Have Tool Our shop currently has 5 of these amazing drills. We purchased our first Bosch drill 4 years ago when we started the scooter shop. Over the years the drill has probably uncrated nearly 200+ scooters and is still working flawlessly. The drill does everything that we need it to do. It is truly remarkable how long lasting the drill is even though the strain it goes through on a daily basis. This drill is a must have for any small shop or definitely at home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful and Compact!! My DeWalt 14v cordless drill burned out in less than 2 years. I purchased this Bosch 18v cordless drill due to the fact that my 18 year old Bosch 9v cordless drill is still in operation today. The drill is compact and can fit into close quarters easily and it's very powerful. The batteries charge quickly (unlike my previous DeWalt drill). If it last as long as my Bosch 9v cordless drill, it'll be with me for many years to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is very durable This drill is light, durable and the batteries appear to last quite a while. I got it for a great price at Home Depot and was pleasantly suprised with the case, charger, etc. They are all light, work well and are nice looking. I don't use this drill very much but I am 100% satisfied with it. Whenever I use it the batteries hold up well and have not been disappointed with the performance.....lots of power!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A real 'Work Horse' I've used this drill to construct a 11 x 21 elevated Deck. It drove more than 6 pounds of 3" and 3 1/2" deck screws plus numerous pilot holes. I have even used it to drill pilot holes on 64 Marine Pilings while out on a Kayak. Yes, both me and the drill got a little wet, but never submerged. This is the best / most durable portable drill I have ever owned. The 18V Batteries are long lasting too.
