For drilling and screwdriving with large diameter bits, the PDC 18 cordless hammer drill delivers high power and speeds with its robust four-gear metal gearbox.

You can perfectly adjust both the torque (in 12 stages) and the speed to your job requirements. If the preset value is exceeded, the electronics switch the device off.

The EC-TEC motor not only provides maximum power, it also adapts to the working conditions. Special power electronics only ever generate enough energy for the relevant application, which means they save energy and increase battery charging intervals significantly.


  • Highly powerful new generation brushless EC-TEC motor
  • Four gears for every working situation, from screwdriving with 60 Nm torque in first gear to precise drilling at 3800 rpm in fourth gear
