Summary: I haven't used my drill very much yet. My old drill, about 20 years old had bad batteries and it would have cost as much to replace them as it did to buy a new drill. It worked great for the small amount of work I did with it. The power seems quite good, so I gave it a 5 star rating.
Failed me in two ways. Hitachi isnt a mid tier brand anymore.

Summary: Dont bother with it, there are other better products out there comparably priced. I am on my second one. Originally I would have said it was a good value. Got it at a decent price. Had enough torq to do most of what I asked of it and the battery was pretty good. Then about 2 months prior to the warranty going out the motor smoked itself. just on basic screws too. That took me back a bit.
Great drill with accessories,and a terrific bargain

Summary: This drill and accessories work great, and represent a terrific bargain. In fact, I have an older Hitachi modfel, which I loved, but Imade the mistake of using it until the battery lost the charge. I needed new batteries and purchased a whole new system for a little more than the price of two replacement batteries. Recharge before the batteries are drained and they will last a long time!
Summary: Love love love my new drill. Bought it while I was on vacation for some projects and the fit is good for a woman's hand and light enough to handle. Would highly recommend to everyone and the flash light that came with it was wonderful. Was able to stand it up and tilt the light to just the right spot I needed it. Great product.
