Bosch’s proprietary Kickback Control helps protect users in bit bind-up situations
When drilling gets tough, it’s nice to know you have one of the best drill/drivers for the task – a tool that’s rugged, compact and brings the added advantage of technology designed to help reduce wrist/arm injuries. The Bosch DDS183 18V EC Brushless Compact Tough™ 1/2 ” Drill/Driver and HDS183 18V EC Brushless Compact Tough™ ½” Hammer Drill/Driver deliver all of the performance professional users expect in a go-anywhere design combined with best-in-class safety technology.
Both the Bosch DDS183 drill/driver and HDS183 hammer drill/driver feature Bosch KickBack Control, an integrated acceleration sensor that virtually stops the drill’s rotation during bit bind-up situations. This capability helps reduce the risk of user injury. The Bosch drill/driver also boasts an efficient EC brushless motor that provides longer tool life, great tool runtime and no maintenance. The Bosch Compact Tough design ensures a short head length and light weight. A built-in LED offers improved visibility in dark work areas.
