  1. Excellent tool with long battery life Review by WoodSenseiMark

    I have been using the Impactor 18V for a variety of jobs, from deck framing to timber framing. The tool exceeded my expectations in its ability to drive long timber bolts in such a compact unit. The long life of the battery pack and quick recharge makes short work of virtually any project. I highly recommend this tool when the job requires a lot of long screw applications. Now, if someone could produce a bit that would withstand the requirements the tool is capable of and not wear out. (Posted on 9/26/2013)

  2. Not very good Review by BoschElectrician

    This product is in no way as good as my 14.4 ni-cad impactor. I had to use two batteries to complete a small project where I used to charge a battery once a week. The power is no way near what the old products had. I am a bosch man but this is disappointing. This would be acceptable for a home owner or weekend warrior who do not know better.

  3. great in a cabinet shop and on cars Review by millwork89

    i mostly use this as an alternate to my 1/2" air impact. while it doesn't quite match up on the torque the mobility and convenience can't be beat. in the cabinet shop its hands down the most useful tool in my box. ive been using it for 3 years and haven't looked back. (Posted on 9/26/2013)

  4. Compact with loads of power! Review by DIYGUY

    I got this Impact Driver 25618 in a set and love it! It is powerful with a great form factor. I also really like:
    A) That it feels very balanced in your hand with a Fat Pack Battery. (Some other brands are not balanced at all!)
    B) The handle grip is perfect size (for me anyway) compared to other brands with a large grip (say for Goliath hands)
    C) It has a perfectly placed LED that is usable as a light (been there) with a slight squeeze of the trigger)
    D) And did I mention the size? The compact head lets you get in places you wouldn't think you could

    All in all a great design! (Posted on 9/26/2013)

  5. This thing is efficient Review by canehdian

    I can't attest to its longevity as I have just recently purchased this tool, however, this driver seems very solid, it has rubber protection in all possible drop impact areas. Its fast. I've never driven 3.5" screws this fast with this little effort. It is also way easier on the wrist over long periods of driving screws then ANY drill, its well balanced. Once you use one of these things for a day doing a deck you'll see what I'm talking about. Battery life is outstanding, with two batteries and a 30 min fast charger you will never have down time. No more breaks for you !! (not sure if thats necessarily a good thing) (Posted on 9/26/2013)

  6. Good addition to my compatible 18v Bosch Drill Review by Jack

    I bought the bare tool to go along with my Bosch Drill which takes the same 18v battery. I used it to drive cabinet screws for wall cabinets that I added to my laundry area. It had plenty of power to get the job done. (Posted on 9/26/2013)

  7. Loads of torque Review by justferfun1

    I've gotten this impact driver in a combo kit with the drill/driver and a bonus third battery and I have to say it was the best purchase I've made for cordless power tools.I had to replace aluminum posts for a 50 foot section of railing on a deck and the posts were held down by 3 inch lag bolts. The impact driver took them out and reinstalled them with hardly any effort. Even where there was a couple posts where they have missed a couple of lag bolts where I had to install new lag bolts, the impact drove them in with ease. Amazing amount of torque for such a compact size and being so compact, made maneuvering the tool around railings easy. Also great run time on the batteries. (Posted on 9/26/2013)

  8. This impactor was well thought through for the user. Review by BJ1

    I have been using my new impactor for only a week and I love it. The details really help me get my work done faster and with more precision. The variable speed control is sensitive enough to allow for slow action as well as torque. The long battery life allows me to charge less, and the durable shell keeps the tool from being damaged on tough job sites. Thank you Bosch for making my job easier and more efficient.

  9. Best you can find for the price Review by doorman

    Purchased last fall with a drill in a kit use both almost everyday has plenty of power for any job I've had
    I install garage doors for a living and even with the 1.5ah batteries supplied both tools work fantastic (Posted on 9/26/2013)

  10. This is a great tool Review by Gary

    Reliable tool that is easy to use. Has a good amount of power and makes driving easy especially longer screws and even lag bolts. (Posted on 9/26/2013)

  11. Everything I wanted Review by djoseph

    I was looking for something to use for both drilling and a driver (screws) which was more compact than a multi-purpose cordless drill. I got it all and then some (power) with this tool. I would buy this again, even if it was not on sale. (Posted on 9/26/2013)

  12. Excellent tool. Review by Hosemanralph

    I've been using my 18-V lithium ion impactor for about two years in the HVAC field. It gets used every day and the battery lasts all day. (Posted on 9/26/2013)

  13. This tool will get it done Review by Ed Keating

    I've used smaller impact drivers and there are some jobs where they aren't able to do the job. This driver is the big gun that gets it done. Note: this isn't the quietest driver out there, but with 1500 in-lbs ti can drive home that lag bolt that the other drivers can't budge. It makes quick work of the job and the battery is a good balance between excess weight and tool run time. This tool is short enough to get into difficult places. Led light illuminates the target which has become a necessity for older eyes.
    This was part of a combo kit with a 3/8 in drill which makes for a good pairing with a cloth bag. I'm liking the cloth bag over the older plastic cases as they fit better when transporting tools to the job site. (Posted on 9/26/2013)

  14. Pound for pound can't be beat. Review by chizel

    I fell in love with this drill the first time I tried it. I was working 2 years ago on some newly built military barracks in FT Stewart, GA. I had bought the 12V Impact drill, and tried it setting some 5/16 inch head screws through red iron, to mount some hanging straps for duct work. I knew it was a task that this little impact drill wasn't designed for, but pushed it to it's limits because I had another name brand drill which was so heavy, so out of convenience I chose to use the 12V Bosch impact drill. The 12V impact drill was like "the little train that could," LOL It pushed and chugged, but managed to set the screws in the red iron. I had to charge the batteries a few times per day, but it did get the job done. I was so impressed with this little power house that I decided to get it's BIG brother #the 18V Impact drill I'm reviewing now#. I bought the 18V impact drill that came in a hard case with the fat pack batteries, and the 30 min charger. I'll tell you what it was like night and day in comparison to my heavy and slower other named brand cordless 18V impact drill with Ni cad batteries. I used the Bosch impact drill all day setting hanging straps in red iron ALL DAY without charging the battery one time. It set my 5/16 inch head screws in the red iron without even flinching. The drill was so light as well. When I first pulled out the drill out it's case, and felt how light it was I said to myself "there's NO WAY this thing is going to match my other branded cordless drill in speed and durability." Boy was I wrong. I've had this impact drill now 2 years, and still am impressed anytime I lift it. I've bored holes in 4 X 4 wood with it, set lag screws in 4 X 4 wood, and done so much with it without ever regretting it's purchase. One of my co-workers on the FT Stewart, Ga job tried it for one day, and felt so in love with it he wound up asking me to go online and order one for him. No lie, I would argue with him because his drill had failed so I loaned him my other name brand drill to use till his Bosch came in the mail. He would come to me during the day and say "Hey I have to set a few screws in a tight space, can I use the Bosch." We would swap drills, and after about 2 hours I would have to track him down on the job site to get my Bosch back from him because he wouldn't want to return it ,LOL. My cousin is a foreman for a drywall company, and he asked to use the 18V impact drill on a weekend, and after using it for just the weekend he wound up buying the Bosch cordless drill that same week due to the longevity of the fat pack batteries. He couldn't believe how long the batteries stood up after using it. The other great thing about this brand is the warranty. I had an issue with the light mounted in front that had failed, so I contacted the service department, and after about 10 minutes on the phone I had another drill in the mail as a "NEW" replacement. My other name brand drills variable trigger function failed after about 14 months #2 months of actual tool use, because I have many cordless drills#, I contacted the warranty department of my other name brand drill, and even though they brag about a 3 year warranty they would not honor the warranty because they said "it's past the 1 year mark so the tool failure is caused by normal wear and tear and not caused by manufacturing defect." From that point on I never purchased another tool from them after being a loyal customer to that brand for over 15 years. As a HVAC contractor for over 20 years I highly recommend this drill.

  15. awesome Review by Marcos

    Don't have time to write a very long review because I'm at work, but just had to say this is the most awesome power tool I've ever owned.  Should you buy one you won't be disappointed.   (Posted on 9/26/2013)

  16. Very good quality and performance for the price Review by Garry

    I have used it a few times already since I bought it and it has proven to be a very good purchase. My friends recognize the brand as a quality product and therefore are trying it and most probably upgrade to this product. Also, your warranty ( provanatage ) is an added bonus.
