“A compact design doesn’t mean less power, at least as far as the Bosch IWMH182 is concerned,” said Tim Truesdale, product manager, cordless, BOSCH POWER TOOLS. “This is a tough tool with the power to meet tough jobs. But that compact size comes in handy when angles are difficult or space is compact.”

The Bosch IWMH182 is equipped with an EC brushless motor that requires no scheduled maintenance and delivers up to 2X longer motor life versus a standard motor. A three-LED light design provides maximum illumination of the work area without shadows; a slim-diameter, soft-grip handle gives users more comfort with less user fatigue.
