Bosch 18V Compact Hammer Drill – HDS182-02

Bosch just made my day.  I am a huge fan of compact drills.  Yes I like lots of power, but the fact is I don’t need large amounts of power most of the time, so why deal with the extra weight?  I have been using the Dewalt compact for a while and love it. However that is the only Dewalt cordless tool I really have.  So in reality it has been more of a pain to have extra batteries around.  On the other hand I do own multiple Bosch tools.  Before I forget, yes this is brushless.

I have been using Bosch ever since I first got into construction in 1992 right when Chicago had their major flood.   I have always owned a Bulldog.  All I can say is I really think I heard concrete cry once when I brought out a Bulldog.
