Summary: I chose this tool based almost solely on the reviews on amazon, boy do I feel like a sucker. Absolutely no power even on low, and very disappointed in the battery life. I only use it to remove and install 1/4 and 5/16 head screws. I would love to get my money back.
Summary: I purchased the product mostly because of the value and the positive reviews. However, after i put it to use i was very disappointed with the lack of power, the fact that it would pinch my hand when i switched the hinged body from angle to straight, poor lighting of the target unless the drill was oriented within a 45 degree portion of the 360 degrees.
Summary: I bought this on sale. It took forever for Lowe's to finally secure one. I heard it got great reviews. The power is not very good, regardless of setting the torque. It doesn't sit comfortably in your hands. My chuck doesn't lock the bit in place. I didn't notice till it was too late to return to Lowe's. Trying to do Warranty Repair with Hitachi is close to useless.
Summary: I received the tool, i used it on my 1/10th scale rc car on setting one but that wasn't tight enough so i put it on 2 and then it just slipped would not get any tighter. The torque will only tighten to 1.
Summary: I have the original, not DB3DL2. It locked up on me the 2nd time I used it. I wasn't even working it hard. I got it as a gift and registered it, but because there's no proof of purchase I'm stuck!
