        Drill Chuck

        By mb123

        from Undisclosed

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

        The only fault I have with this drill is that the drill chuck support is not very good (with a drill bit tightened in the check it is able to be moved up and down). This makes it difficult to keep drill bits on center. I do not use my drill for my job so it isn't used daily or even monthly at times. I have sent it in for repair twice in the past 2.5 yrs I've owned it. Apparently this is an issue that cannot be fixed. Not sure what can be done short of switching brands.

          alot of drill for the $$$

          By gangtackler

          from Wisconsin, United States

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

          Great balance of size/weight/power. Most bosch tools get these ratios down perfect. Went off of other reviews on the web and I am happy for it. This dds181 has a great feel for my avg sized hands and is really made well. The only negative is the plastic housing on the chuck. No problems here so far but it doesn't inspire alot of confidence. Holds bits well just could be a little more reinforced.

          New Vs. Reconditioned

          What's the difference between New and Factory-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 consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
          • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.
