Both the Bosch DDS183 drill/driver and HDS183 hammer drill/driver feature Bosch KickBack Control, an integrated acceleration sensor that stops the drill’s rotation during most 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.
