The Bosch SDS cordless hammer drill is a compact, light weight powerhouse! I recently had the opportunity to bring this drill out to some job-sites and put it to work.
The Bosch SDS Cordless Hammer Drill RHH180-01 has 360 in./lbs. of torque in a 5-2/3-pound body, making a no brain-er tool for tight spot or overhead drilling. Installing overhead electrical metal conduit comes to mind….. my shoulders just ache thinking about it.
The Bosch RHH180-01 hammer’s is a no nonsense tool that is designed to work and be productive. Bosch designed this hammer to be compatible with both Bosch SlimPack and Fat Pack lithium-ion batteries, and it comes with a 30 minute charger.
I let my brother, a plumber use this tool and he had four words to describe it, “This tool is awesome!”
Thoughts on the Bosch RHH180-01 SDS Hammer Drill:
I have used lots of rotary hammer drills but have never used a cordless SDS hammer drill. I thought it was light weight for a cordless (it felt approximately the same weight as my other corded rotary hammer drills of the same size).
It was extremely powerful. I couldn’t tell any difference in power between this cordless drill and a corded type drill. It was ergonomically correct and comfortable to hold and operate.
A tool free bit changer was easy to operate and a nice touch. The handle is adjustable 360 degrees and it has a drill bit depth gauge if needed.
The trigger was my favorite. It’s a variable speed trigger and is controlled and adjustable by the touch of your finger for better control a feature that helps considerably when starting new holes.
Sometimes setting finish in a new remodel or new house there is no power readily available yet…so it’s nice not to have to set up and drag a cord around just for a few holes!
This tool is built rugged and definitely powerful and durable enough for professional tradesmen to use on a regular basis. Of course the do-it -yourself-er will love it too!
My ONLY negative about this tool is that the LED light is lacking in usefulness. This tool doesn’t even need a light! In it’s current position, the LED light shines more up onto the tool than the work space and it is not bright enough. This wouldn’t deter me from buying it at all!
