This is an exceptional drill/driver for the price.

Summary: Lots of pluses and only one small negative for this great, lightweight power tool. Good value at the special sale price. The lithium battery does a good job and gave me lots of usage before needind recharging. The extra battery and work-light are nice extras.
Summary: My Hitachi cordless drill has exceeded my expectations. I was afraid because it was less expensive than comparable competitors models that it wouldn't measure up, but I was wrong. Long battery life, plenty of power, feels good in your hand and even the styling is pretty sharp. Can't go wrong owning this one!
Summary: I am extremely pleased with the power and dependability of this cordless. For the value it was a great purchase. I would highly recommend this product. I have great success with all their products.
Summary: I have had the 12v impact driver since 2006 and the NiCads still work. I can't say the same for the18v lithium, lost 4 3ah. batts in 2 years, 2 1.5 ah. in 1-1/2 years. Whats wrong with your lithium batteries?Am I going to be stuck with this entire set (9) of 18v tools and useless batteries?I also own all of the 10.8v tools, have not had a problem with those batteries, only the 18v ones.I only use these 2 to 3 times a month so they are not being abused.
