Active Torque Control

It's about time! Over 1000 inch lbs can ruin your day pretty quick.
They could have used Bosch with torque control, but I don't think they were trying to bash anyone else, just show how it worked. They didn't claim to invent torque control. I liked that it was just a simple demo, no sales guy chewing your ear off.

Was a nice demo, I've been on the business end of the dewalt snagging like that it doesn't feel good, it's good tech and I think every drill over a set torque should have this tech, especially if your doing ladder work

One of the reasons I had ordered the Bosch HDS183 was because of it's anti-kickback feature.
I switched back to the DCD996 because I knew that I won't be doing any major drilling which might lead to a kickback situation, and the price on the Dewalt combo was just too good to be true.

I was drilling 18" of poured concrete with the big Hilti, I hit rebar and the drill spun, the handle hit me in the face and knocked me off my 6ft ladder.

I am very happy this is starting to be more popular!

As in a SDS max...?? 

Does that have a mechanical clutch?

It was a pretty old Hilti, not sure. I would assume not, given the kick after it hit the rebar.

I have to own the fact that I was not using the ladder or tool ...."correctly"....[emoji56]

Come to think of it, that's the same Hilti that split my thumb open...

Should be a requirement on large drills. Them things are powerful.
