Excellent drill/driver for serious DIY

A. Maceroli, Amazon
20 October 2015
  • Summary: I've had this tool for a couple of months, and have used it on a number of projects, including building an outdoor shower, and a garden arbor. The tool has plenty of power, and the battery has pretty good life. I built the whole shower (4 by 6) on one charge.

Charger burned out after a month

T. Barta, Amazon
20 July 2015
  • Summary: I really like the balance and weight of this drill. I've had a Hitachi cordless drill before in a lower voltage and it lasted me 2-3 years with fairly hard usage. After a month this battery charger has burned out. Just contacted Hitachi about a replacement.

I absolutely love this set

Evan, Amazon
15 July 2015
  • Summary: I absolutely love this set. The impact is a real workhorse. Powerful and light weight. I always reach for it to deal with any fastener. Drill is nice, though not overly powerful (I prefer a corded drill for most drill applications where I need a little oomph).

  • Summary: I have two sets of 18volt lithium ion Makita drill and driver drill. I love them. The Hitachis don't feels as high a quality as the Makitas. That being said, the Hitachi works just as well in every respect. Plus the Hitachi warranty (lifetime) puts the Makita two year to shame.

Great, great drill

GTJ, Amazon
6 March 2015
  • Summary: Great, great drill. Nice balance, lots of power. Had a 14.4NiCad cordless drill for years until it finally wouldn't hold a charge (I think it was 8 years...). This one is a bit pricier than others but the drill/light/2-batteries combo is absolutely worth every penny and I expect the batteries will...

Comfortable ergonomics, light weight

Robert Hills, Amazon
25 December 2014
  • Summary: Comfortable ergonomics, light weight, excellent power, super bright flashlight included. And phenomenal value at $130. Unless you are using a 2" spade bit in rock maple, or need to be A Real Man, this drill makes far more sense than the super-duty Milwaukee and Dewalt offerings that weigh and cost...

Great drill

Marek, Amazon
9 December 2014
  • Summary: For usual houses in CA (with wooden walls), it's a great drill, which works reliable and fast. Have not tried to drill into harder surfaces than wood yet. For my purposes (occasional drilling) the battery life is good, I have to recharge it 1-2 a year.

Has held up for 4 years

OKStateCIVE, Hitachi Power Tools
2 December 2014
  • Summary: This drill (or its predecessor, for it looks very similar) was given to me 4 years ago as a wedding gift. My brother gave it to me because his business used Hitachi drills.
