Great Drill!

S. Carpenter, Amazon
20 December 2014
  • Summary: I have owned this drill for 3 years now. It is the best drill I have ever used! I used it as I finished my entire basement. From electrical, to drywall, to finish work, it has performed wonderfully. This was my first Hitachi product, and I will definitely buy others.

Revised...Hitachi stands by their warranty

Jared Mader, Amazon
29 March 2014
  • Summary: I've owned three contractor grade cordless drills. Out of the box, the chuck was 1/8" out of true. Less than 6-months of ownership resulted in a seized and inoperable clutch, and finally, after two years, the entire housing has broken just about the trigger.

Great Drill, But?

CKMAGIC, Amazon
14 January 2014
  • Summary: This is an awesome drill. Great power, good battery life but, the area where the handle meets the base has broken on me twice over the years I've owned it.

A Horse in Ugly Colors

William Murphy, Amazon

  • Summary: OK- no beauty queen. But this driver drill is a horse when it comes to performance. I rebuilt our deck posts, using this to back out 10" rusted cleat bolts. Worked beautifully, impressing the contractor helping.

5 years so far and still happy

Jeff Adams, Amazon
7 October 2013
  • Summary: I've had my DS18DL for 5 years. It has had moderate amount of use - I am a 'homeowner' (vs commercial user) but have a large property and some rentals and some friends that are good at roping me into projects so it has seen what for most homeowners would probably be 10 years of usage.

Good for drills only..

Pine Nut, Amazon
3 April 2013
  • Summary: Although there are different settings for different sizes of screws, it does not work as a driver. Much smaller impact driver does a better job. I would not recommend it for using it as a driver.

Great Drill

Frank, Amazon
6 March 2013
  • Summary: I bought this drill about 5 years ago. I abused it. I use it almost daily. I built a dock with this drill. Several times I sort of dunked part of the drill into the water. This drill has so much torque that it can rip out of your hands if you don't hold it tight.
