* Bosch has released a newer 18v Li-Ion compact cordless drill – the Bosch DDS181-02.
We gave the Bosch 36618-02 18v cordless drill an 8.8 overall rating. This is the highest rated drill on Amazon with a 4.8 out of 5 rating. Out of 131 reviewers not even 1 gave this tool a 1 star rating, while only 1 person each gave it a 2 and 3 star rating, which is almost unheard of.
This is Bosch’s compact 18v lithium-ion model. It weighs only 3.7 pounds while still delivering an above average 500 in-lbs of torque. Also the price is reasonable at around $170. It is a very good cordless drill for the money.
Taking everything under consideration, we highly recommend this drill for everyone from homeowners up through professionals.
