Pros
Lightweight
Unexpectedly wonderful!
I confess! I originally bought this drill for the 2 batteries and charger. It was cheaper than buying the two batteries and charger separately. I had ordered a Bosch 18V vacuum that comes w/o the batteries, hence the need for batteries. The drill came way before the vac, then the vac that was sent was a 14.4v! Of course, the battery would not fit. I reordered the vac, but in the meantime, I started using the drill. It is lighter than my husband's B & D, easier for my 65 year old arthritic hands to use. I especially like the multi speed trigger; I can start slow and then go faster as needed. I unscrewed the fan for cleaning, fixed a shelf in the camper and other small jobs. My husband likes it, too. The only 'con' I could find was the included bit; both sides had a Phillps Head. I would have thought one side would be straight...?? The batteries seem to last a long time and charge quickly.

Great Tool
The tool is awesome. The 18v provides plenty of power for an assortment of projects around the house...big and small.

I recommend Bosch and especially CPO!

Replaced the old 14.4 volt drills
Great tools for the cost. I keep one in the shop and one packed with varied tooling for service in my old 14.4 rigid case to carry more accessories. The soft case is too small for the number of bits and extras I like to have in combination with the machine.

Does DDB181-02 18v come with 2.0 amp hour or 1.5 amp hour batteries - copy states both contradictorily
per11911 on Feb 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I received my set near the end of June, 2015. It came with two 1.5 ah batteries. I was very pleased since I was primarily going to use the drill with my pocket hole jig. I am an avid hobbyist so it will not get that much use.

John on Mar 28, 2016

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.
