Awesome Product
I had borrowed this Drill from a friend recently and after using for a couple of days decided I had to have my own. Long Battery life, and tough... this is an excellent choice for hard remodels or simple household repairs.

This is constantly at my side in the workshop and carried to my garage when a household or automobile needs something installed or repaired. The high torque and adjustable speed always meet or exceed the repair requirement

Bosch quality, great deal!
I have two other drills plus 1/4" impact driver from Bosch and they're all great quality. Same battery pack across the board (kudos to Bosch for keeping the same battery design!) so I will never run out of batteries. The task light is located in a great spot so you can always see your work. The clutch and hammer action are top notch, with easy switching.
Great product!

Can the hammer drill function be turned off so the drill can operate regular?
Scott on Apr 27, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the selector ring allows the tool to be set for various drilling/hammer drilling applications.
1) Is this product an all-in-one drill compared to the combo kit Bosch CLPK232-181 18V Cordless?

2) Which one do you recommend for non-professional use?

3) Does the HDS181-3 come with a hard case or soft case like the Bosch CLPK232-181 18V ?

Thanks you.
Andrea on Nov 13, 2015
