A powerful 18 volt cordless combi drill which uses different adapters to master virtually any task: With the AdvancedImpact 18 and three matching adapters Bosch offers for the first time a cordless combi drill system for DIYers. Its field of application ranges from conventional screwdriving to drilling into wood and metal as well as impact drilling into masonry – and the QuickSnap adapters make the tool even more versatile. If they wish, DIYers can combine the AdvancedImpact 18 QuickSnap with a drill chuck, an eccentric or an angle screw adapter, allowing them to work precisely even in hard-to-reach areas. This includes, for example, loosening screws and screwing close to edges of cabinets or drilling in tight spaces.

QuickSnap: Simply click into place and you're good to go!

To fit an adapter using the AdvancedImpact 18 QuickSnap, DIYers only need to push it into the QuickSnap interface on the combi drill. It then automatically clicks into place and is ready to use right away. A ring, marked in red, helps to change the adapter just as quick: It simply needs to be pulled forward to release the adapter.

A cordless combi drill system for virtually any task

The AdvancedImpact 18 QuickSnap has a magnetic bit holder and can be used for screwdriving, even without any adapters. Torques of up to 19 newton meters for screwing in wood and 38 newton meters for screwing in metal ensure a fast work progress. Anyone who wants to drill holes, can turn to the drill chuck adapter. It can be used for round-shank drill bits of up to 10 mm in diameter and enables DIYers to powerfully drill holes into masonry thanks to the AdvancedImpact 18 QuickSnap’s impact function. For any application that does not require the use of an impact drill, such as drilling into wood or metal, the drill chuck adapter can also be combined with the angle screw adapter. This allows DIYers to screw and drill holes around corners, and it can be locked in eight different positions. When using the AdvancedImpact 18 QuickSnap with the eccentric adapter, DIYers can screw precisely as close as 10 mm from the edge. Like the angle screw adapter, the eccentric adapter can also be locked in eight different positions and has a hex socket as well as a magnetic bit holder.

A smart combination: “Power for All” from Bosch

The AdvancedImpact 18 QuickSnap is part of the ”Power for All“ battery system, which comprises DIY and garden tools. Twenty different power tools, from grass trimmers to rotary hammers, can currently be operated using the same 18 volt lithium-ion battery. This eliminates redundant batteries and chargers and saves DIYers money, too. A ”Power for All“ logo on the packaging indicates which tools belong to the system.

The AdvancedImpact 18 QuickSnap will be available from autumn 2017 onwards. All prices are recommended retail prices including VAT. Subject to change.
