Bosch DDS183B Cordless Drill Review

Last Updated on June 2, 2023 by Tyra Miller


This was our #1 pick for the best cordless drill. It is much more compact and lightweight than anything we have tested in the price range. We love the feel of this drill and its ergonomic design, which makes it really easy to handle.

Bosch DDS183B Product

The whole thing weighs only 2.6 pounds, and the short head makes it easy to work in inaccessible locations. Don’t let its small size fool you, this Bosch drill is the most powerful drill in its class, delivering just over 500 in-lb of force.

The Bosch DDS183B 18v Cordless Lithium-Ion EC Drill uses an efficient brushless motor that provides a longer battery life and a longer overall tool lifespan.

This drill features KickBack Control which causes an immediate stop in case of blockage or a potentially dangerous torque reaction. This kind of attention to detail is what really sets the tool apart from the others we tested. You can just feel the quality difference between this drill and lower-end drills.

The DDS183B Compact Tough 1/2-in drill is suitable for any handyman, amateur, or semi-professional contractor.


In our opinion, this is the drill to get. The Bosch DDS183B is the top-rated drill in the market, and it is priced better than many of the other so-called “better models.”
