This is the strongest toughest cordless drill I have ever ...
5 February 2015
Summary: This is the strongest toughest cordless drill I have ever owned. Lasting many years lots of falls from ladders etc. and it is 1/2 inch capacity. The small ratcheting drivers are giving it a run for driving big screws but for drilling the brute is a winner hands down.
Summary: I have been building a two story building with screws. Not a hammer on the site. I finally wore out my chuck on my Bosch 36v drill and decided to purchase a new drill instead of the chuck. Result. The new drill is half the weight. The batteries are half as thick. But! The power is just as good!
Summary: ESP like the LiIon batteries in these drills, 4 years and still going strong. I made the mistake of lubing my old bosch with WD40 inside, bad idea. To repair the old Bosch was $100 more than the new drill(Silly).
Summary: This extremely heavy drill is not for driving screws. The 18V Makita impact is for driving screws. I bought this drill for power. A few holes here, a spin there. Little jobs so that I don't have to use and extension cord.
Summary: I just want to say how satisfied I am on the 36v drill model # 18636 that I purchase four years ago. I used this drill in numerous projects around the house. Let me tell why this drill is so amazing. I have a house in Cap May county, NJ. It is located 1500ft from the bay which is salt water.
Was extremely helpful in building terra steps. the 6x6 lumber was a breeze to drill.

Summary: We built the steps in our back yard with about 45 foot of path. 12 steps and 45 foot with 6x6 on either side. only needed to change the battery once. Glad my husband likes to buy me the most powerful tools for me. His philosophy is to buy the best you can afford its pays off in the long run!!
Summary: I've been using Bosch Drills for drilling through metal in car doors for a long time. Whenever I have had a problem I overnight it to the Service center in Miami and receive a package back 2 days later. Sometimes they repair the damaged drill, often they simply replace it with a new one.
Summary: I've had this Bosch rechargeable drill (with hammer feature) now for over a year. Usually after a bit of time using a tool I can think of several changes I'd like to see implemented, but not this time. Simply stated, this is a virtually perfectly designed and executed tool.
