Bosch DDH183 18V Brute Tough 1/2" Drill/Driver and HDH183 18V Brute Tough 1/2" Hammer Drill/Driver Deliver Power, Jobsite Durability and User Protection
Bosch-exclusive KickBack Control meets high performance motor and rugged design
Las Vegas, Nev., January 17, 2017 – When the job calls for more power and maximum reliability, professional users can’t miss with Bosch’s latest 18V drill/driver and hammer drill/driver offerings. Both the Bosch DDH183 18V EC Brushless Brute Tough 1/2" Drill/Driver and HDH183 18V EC Brushless Brute Tough 1/2" Hammer Drill/Driver pack more features than their predecessors, including injury-mitigating KickBack Control and an improved ergomonic design.
With both the DDH183 drill/driver and HDH183 hammer drill/driver delivering 663 In.-Lbs. of torque at two speeds (0-2100 rpm high speed; 0-480 rpm for high torque), professionals can pack serious power in a lightweight, cordless package.
That’s why both Brute Tough models feature Bosch-exclusive KickBack Control, an integrated acceleration sensor that virtually stops the drill’s rotation during bit bind-up situations. This feature helps reduce the risk of user injury, and a new LED light shows when KickBack Control is activated or the tools overload protection is activated. In addition, the new drivers offer 25+1 precision clutch settings, which provide driving accuracy for reduced fastener and workpiece damage.
“Professionals today expect the power and longevity of a corded tool in a cordless package,” said Mats Stellnert, group product manager, Robert Bosch Tool Corporation. “The Bosch DDH183 drill/driver and HDH183 hammer drill/driver deliver the power our users demand while including advanced features like KickBack Control and the precision clutch. It’s these incremental benefits to the user that set Bosch tools apart.”
Advanced user benefits continue with DDH183 and HDH183 power, which is driven by an efficient EC brushless motor that provides 2X longer tool life than a standard motor, longer runtimes and virtually no maintenance. The Brute Tough design also ensures a shorter head length and a lighter tool with no reduction in power. That’s combined with an upgraded all-metal chuck that delivers durability and strong bit retention. The Bosch-exclusive Durashield housing adds to overall tool durability for the toughest applications and jobsites. In addition, improved handle geometry offers a comfortable grip throughout the workday.
The Bosch Flexible Power System is one of the most versatile Lithium-ion battery platforms available. The system offers complete compatibility by allowing 18V FatPack and SlimPack batteries to be used with any tool. And Bosch 18V batteries feature CoolPack technology, which offers a heat conductive housing to keep batteries cooler for superior runtime and up to 2X longer life. All Bosch batteries provide cold weather performance to -4°F, as well as an integrated fuel gauge.
The tool includes Bosch-exclusive Electronic Cell Protection (ECP) that protects the battery against overload, overheating and deep discharge for longer life. Likewise, Bosch Electronic Motor Protection (EMP) protects the motor against overload with integrated temperature management.
As with all Bosch cordless tools, the DDH183 and HDH183 come with Bosch ProVantage, a protection plan that extends coverage against defects to three years (expanded coverage in the first 12 months of standard warranty), plus two-year battery coverage.
