  1. Magnificent Addition to My Tool Arsenal Review by deejay104

    Its sturdy construction and easy-to-use bit management makes this drill a welcome addition to my tool chest. I don't know how I did without it for so long. The battery life is superb and the housing takes a licking. Best value I've seen in a long time. But then again, Bosch is know for making great products. (Posted on 9/26/2013)

  2. Bosch rocks! Review by drm22

    This product rocks. Bosch is invented for life and it shows. (Posted on 9/26/2013)

  3. Wonderful size, extraordinary battery life Review by Woodie

    This is a product that is perfect for the home handyman. With its light weight and balance, it is the tool I grab instead of a screwdriver or a wrench. It has sufficient power for everything I need, including my woodworking. Its size makes it so easy to use, especially in those awkward positions. It goes "forever" on a charge. I have recommended this tool to friends and family. (Posted on 9/26/2013)

  4. Great Drill Review by ChrisQ

    I have had this drill for about 3 years and it's been great. The light needs to be brighter but other than that it works great. Make sure you have an extra battery. (Posted on 9/26/2013)

  5. the light on it is the perfect thing for people to see in dark areas Review by lovetools

    i bought this drill for my husband, and he really loves it, he said was better that the Dewalt Drills that he has, great product, and good for the money (Posted on 9/26/2013)

  6. Must Have Tool Review by ECOFUNSCOOTERS

    Our shop currently has 5 of these amazing drills. We purchased our first Bosch drill 4 years ago when we started the scooter shop. Over the years the drill has probably uncrated nearly 200+ scooters and is still working flawlessly. The drill does everything that we need it to do. It is truly remarkable how long lasting the drill is even though the strain it goes through on a daily basis. This drill is a must have for any small shop or definitely at home.

  7. Battery died after using it 2 times Review by norton712

    I wish that the batteries would last longer. like the driver a lot but will wait and see how it will be handled by Bosch (Posted on 9/26/2013)

  8. Great drill Review by luckenbac

    This drill is great. Excellent power,durability, and features. Price is higher than other lower end drills but you get what you pay for, except this drill has more to offer than other similar priced items. (Posted on 9/26/2013)

  9. Powerful, light, durable Review by MasterTRL

    This drill is much more powerful then other 18V Liion drills I have used. (Posted on 9/26/2013)

    Feels good in my hand and powerful enough. I like it. (Posted on 9/26/2013)

  12. The best cordless drill that I have owned Review by RLSINT

    I have owned several cordless drills. This one is the beat of any of them. My friends have dewalt, craftsman, etc and are amazed at the power this drill has. The battery charge lasts a long time and the complete charge time of 30 minutes is great. I liked it so much, that I bought another one that came as a combo with an inpact driver. (Posted on 9/26/2013)

  13. unstoppable Review by Andy

    This drill has been used and abused. Even after the crew dropped the drill into wet cement, the drill continued to work flawlessly. Excellent product by Bosch! (Posted on 9/26/2013)

  14. This product is a good for different projects Review by parker

    This drill is durable,reliable and long lasting. It is a powerful tool for multiple jobs. I dropped it from the top of a 2nd story house and it still works as good as the day I bought it. (Posted on 9/26/2013)

  15. Best drill I have owned Review by rd001

    This drill has excellent power and smooth operation. However
    after only a year, one of the batteries has failed to charge, which
    makes it rather expensive in terms of maintenance. (Posted on 9/26/2013)

  16. Durable Drill Review by JohnQPublic

    This drill is very tough. The batteries run time is surprisingly long and their recharge time is fast. The drill can handle any task you throw at it. (Posted on 9/26/2013)

  17. This product is very durable Review by phil

    This drill is light, durable and the batteries appear to last quite a while. I got it for a great price at Home Depot and was pleasantly suprised with the case, charger, etc. They are all light, work well and are nice looking.
    I don't use this drill very much but I am 100% satisfied with it. Whenever I use it the batteries hold up well and have not been disappointed with the performance.....lots of power! (Posted on 9/26/2013)

  18. durable tool after almost 3 years Review by millwork89

    bought this drill in 2009 and have never looked back. i am a cabinet maker and a hobby mechanic i use this drill all day everyday and have dropped it plenty of times. with a full charge the torque is comparable to a corded drill at half the weight and ten times the mobility. my only grievance would be with the battery life but that is an unavoidable factor if my line of work. however i have purchased two extra batteries and with 4 total i can work for a solid day and a half without needing to charge any of them. all in all awesome tool and it reminds me every day. (Posted on 9/26/2013)

  19. Bosch above all Review by boschuser

    This product has been the most vital to my everyday operation and more importantly, in this sense, has been and continues to be put through the works with constant drilling, driving and beating yet continues to produce results of a high quality. I would not recommend changing anything in this specific model. (Posted on 9/26/2013)

  20. Love it! Review by howard

    I bought two of these to use one as a drill and the other a driver and hardly ever need to change batteries. I found the light to be a lot more useful than I thought it would be when I first discovered it was there!

    I also like the positive-locking chuck (Posted on 9/26/2013)

  21. A real 'Work Horse' Review by BobBlasz

    I've used this drill to construct a 11 x 21 elevated Deck. It drove more than 6 pounds of 3" and 3 1/2" deck screws plus numerous pilot holes.
    I have even used it to drill pilot holes on 64 Marine Pilings while out on a Kayak. Yes, both me and the drill got a little wet, but never submerged.
    This is the best / most durable portable drill I have ever owned.
    The 18V Batteries are long lasting too. (Posted on 9/26/2013)

  22. It is easy to use. Review by Denton Miller

    I love this drill! It is the best drill I ever used. (Posted on 9/26/2013)

  23. Incredible Battery life Review by John O

    I nearly completed screwing deck screws into a medium sized deck before the battery checked out. My son insisted that I had changed batteries when he wasn't looking. Best drill on the market. (Posted on 9/26/2013)

  24. Favorite of the 6 drills I own Review by Bill

    Lightweight, compact, powerful, durable. Excellant battery life and the 30 minute charger is convenient too! (Posted on 9/26/2013)

  25. Good tool - great size Review by Gary

    Easy to handle - good power. The light is a nice feature and battery life is good (Posted on 9/26/2013)

  26. Best Drill on the Market. Review by Andy

    I'm using this drill at work, and I'm absolutely impressed by the built quality and battery life time of this drill. Don't get misled by the little capacity of the slim pack batteries - because this drill is very energy efficient so they are still lasting longer as their 1.5Ah counterparts from the competition.
    I like also the sensitive approach of the speed trigger, which allows to use speeds down to 10rpm.
    And last but not least the locking chuck - it really holds the drill bits tight - so no turning and damaging of your bits when the drill bit gets stuck.
    I tell all my friends: forget orange, yellow or red - go blue ;-) (Posted on 9/26/2013)

  27. Most powerful drill Review by Bruce

    I bought one of these drills about a year ago. It has been so awesome, I bought one for my son when he moved out. The batteries hold their power charge long after they are put away. Last fall the drill really showed its strength and power. My friends and I were putting a corn feeder bracket high up in a tree. A hole had to be drilled through the tree which was about 13" thick. my friends tried their drills but none would go through the tree with the auger bit. Finally they asked for the Bosch drill and it was able to drill through the tree. It took three other drill failures to show me just how powerful the Bosh drill really is. (Posted on 9/26/2013)

  28. Nice drill/driver! Review by jonswriter

    I had to replace my older 18v drill/driver with this model following a car break-in a few years ago. It is a better tool than the Bosch 18v drill/driver it replaced on all counts. Ir is tougher, better-balanced, more powerful, easier to use, and it has both a 1/2-inch chuck and better Li-ion  batteries. And all of these improvements for almost the same price as the drill/driver  and jigsaw combo that it replaced. 

    Although the home--and the remodeling work for which the original 18v tool combo tools were purchased--are both now behind us, I use the new 36618-02 often and still appreciate its capabilities whenever I need a drill or driver. (Posted on 9/26/2013)

  29. Good Drill Review by Sueiey

    We bought this drill and it works really great. I like the two batteries they add value and allow for increased using. (Posted on 9/26/2013)

  30. Value Review by MountainArtisan

    Good torque in light weight, agile form factor, at an excellent value compared to other cordless on the market. Best cordless that I ever owned. (Posted on 9/26/2013)

  31. another good one Review by boschmanbrian

    I bought the older model the blue core, along with the 23618 impactor, great drill, battery lasts long. (Posted on 9/26/2013)

  32. Powerful and Compact!! Review by JSCOTT

    My DeWalt 14v cordless drill burned out in less than 2 years. I purchased this Bosch 18v cordless drill due to the fact that my 18 year old Bosch 9v cordless drill is still in operation today. The drill is compact and can fit into close quarters easily and it's very powerful. The batteries charge quickly (unlike my previous DeWalt drill). If it last as long as my Bosch 9v cordless drill, it'll be with me for many years to come. (Posted on 9/26/2013)

  33. Great Drill! Review by Grant

    I have enjoyed using this drill at home to do many projects. (Posted on 9/26/2013)
