Asked by: Margie
Thank you for your question. The DDB181-02 drill driver has a brushed motor. It is the DDB182 that is brushless. For further assistance, contact us at 1-877-BOSCH99 (1-877-267-2499) from Mon-Fri 7A-7P CST.

I've gotten the new one. I have 2 batteries, but How do I keep one from dead for using later in the furture.

Asked by: diyman
There is no problem storing one of the batteries in the charger. Rotate the batteries if not being used for a long period, unknown of duration.

It is for my daughter's apartment, and I wanted to get her a good drill, but not pay and arm and a leg for one. I'm familiar with Bosch tools, and I know they are quality . This kit is no exception. The kit comes with (2) 1.5ah ( not 2ah) batteries. I also like the soft case as opposed to the moulded plastic case. No frills. There is no fuel gauge on the drill or batteries. But your paying $89 for this kit. I did a little test with this drill. It sank #10x3" screw into a 4x4 with no pilot hole on low and high setting. I then tortured it and had it drive a 5/16"x3" lag into a 4x4 with no pilot hole on low speed . It stalled with about 3/8" left, not bad at all. What does this say. This drill is designed for home use vs construction type work, but it is a very capable drill. This is an affordable drill in the Bosch line. It seems solid, and there is no slop noted. This drill should serve my daughter well.

In preparation for building a deck, we ordered what we thought was the same thing. Love that it has a storage bag and extra battery but it just doesn't seem as powerful as our older drill. The grip is a little smaller so it quickly became "my" drill and the husband uses the old one. It got the job done. Just different!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best value around for a 18v lithium compact I purchased this drill for home use. I recently used it to polish and wax a car. Batteries lasted about 40 minutes and had a recharge time of 40 minutes so the two battery combo works well. Drill is constructed very solid. Great ergonomics and lightweight. Nice LED lamp for illumination and a motor brake. Milwaukee makes a better drill but it is about twice the price for a brushless motor which has two additional years on the warranty. So for the money I went with this one and am pleased with the value and design. It has a smarter charging system than older drills (Makita) that won't overcharge and the batteries hold for 18 months in storage from a full charge. Fantastic value for moderate use. Be sure to sign up online to extend the warranty to 3 years.
