Hammer Drill/Driver with Bluetooth®

A compact tool shouldn’t mean fewer features or less power. The Bosch GSB18V-535C 18V EC Brushless Compact Tough 1/2 In. Hammer Drill/Driver and Bosch GSR18V-535C 18V EC Brushless Compact Tough 1/2 In. Drill/Driver prove a small package can not only pack a serious punch, but deliver on next-generation jobsite technology. From Bluetooth® connectivity to KickBack Control, these lightweight, compact tools promise to be go-to options in your tool bag.


The Bosch GSB18V-535C Hammer Drill/Driver and Bosch GSR18V-535C Drill/Driver combine advanced user control with a compact, powerful cordless tool. The tools feature Bluetooth® connectivity (which connects to an optional Connectivity Tool Module) that links the tool to the free Bosch Toolbox App, which is available at the Apple App Store® or the Google Play® Store. The app works with a mobile device to provide enhanced tool control and detailed tool usage feedback, including battery charge status. Users can customize the tool, which includes changing the KickBack Control sensitivity and adjusting the time the LED remains on after trigger release.


The hammer drill/driver and drill/driver offer Bosch-exclusive Kickback Control, an integrated acceleration sensor that limits tool rotation by detecting sudden movement and shutting down the motor. The feature mitigates injury risk in bind-up situations.


While the GSB18V-535C and GSR18V-535C are packed with features, they’re also powerful tools. Both offer an efficient, maintenance-free EC Brushless motor that produces up to 535 in.-lbs. of torque for tough driving and drilling applications. The tools have 2 speed settings, one for high-power tasks (0–600 rpm) and one for high-speed drilling (0–1,900 rpm). The hammer drill/driver’s no-load bpm is 28,500.


For more accurate fastener driving, reduced overtightening and less cam out, the GSB18V-535C and GSR18V-535C provide a precision clutch with 20+1 settings. Not only will the user have fewer damaged screw heads, there will be less wear and tear on the tool components. Its durable all-metal chuck stops drill bits from slipping during high-torque applications with a high clamping force.


Both feature an all-metal chuck for increased durability, an ergonomic grip zone for better handling and a longer belt clip for a more secure hold. It also comes with a 4x bit holder, 4 bit tips in addition to the belt clip. It is a bare-tool kit; the battery and charger are sold separately.
