The Bosch IDS181-02-RT 18V Compact Tough 1/4 in. Hex Impact Driver with 2 Lithium-I High Capacity Batteries features an ultra-compact design, while delivering best-in-class application control. The IDS181-02 ft.s compact head length and lightweight design deliver the best balance and control for 18V small to medium duty applications. Optimized impact performance provides the best runtime compared to similar in-class competitors along with 15% less torque and 10% more speed for the best application control.

The new impact drivers also feature an intelligent electronic protection system, including electronic motor protection which increases motor life by protecting the motor in overload and stall situations and electronic cell protection, which doubles battery life. A durable belt clip offers users quick tool storage between applications.

My "go-to" impact driver when I need that extra power
I normally use a small 12v impact driver for most jobs just because it's lighter and can handle the majority of what I need. On bigger jobs, though, this is my go-to. I haven't met a project yet this unit can't handle. The Bosch batteries have tons of power and if weight is a concern the slim pack batteries cut a few ounces off the scale. Battery life is great, and with a 30 minute charge time you can minimize downtime even with only one battery pack. It's always smart to keep a spare or two around, and that way you'll never have to stop. A+ all arund.

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.
