Summary: The drill does well for light duty jobs. The drive settings are well set but I found that the torque is not always high enough. Requiring the drill setting be used. I would recommend the tool for light jobs around the house. The reversing switch takes some getting used to as most drill show forward or reverse and not left and right.
The drill and batteries hold up but the UC10SFLP battery charger fails

Summary: The drill and batteries hold up but the UC10SFLP battery chargers fail. I have had two chargers fail in the couple of years I have owned the system. The first time it was replaced by the repair facility. The second time they told me to get a hold of Hitachi. I have submitted service requests twice with no response. They have no phone numbers to call either. Repair facility told me to drop Hitachi and go with Ridig. They at least have a warranty and stand behind it.
Summary: I have given this 3 stars due to when using this drill on high speed it really drains and heats up the battery. They have a heat protection built in and tool will cut off and it will not charge too. Good when you want to save the life of your battery and bad when you want to charge it right away. But over all I am pleased owning this 12v (10.8v) system I also have 1/4 driver and impact and both I them I would rate 5 stars in their class.
Summary: This product works very well as a drill but is somewhat lacking in power as a driver for anything more than small screws. I am disappointed in the slippage of the clutch mechanism even at its maximum setting. The lithium ion battery holds a charge for a long time which I like very much.
Summary: Брал этот шуруповерт года полтора назад, а может и раньше. Выбирал между Hitachi, Bosch, Makita и AEG. Тогда он стоил на 25-40$ дешевле чем другие маленькие литиевые шуруповерты.Сейчас по цене отличий нет. Хотя в Москве можно такой взять за 120$. По-этому и поставлю низкую оценку. Работаю им почти каждый день(установка мебели). До сих пор работает и держит заряд нормально. Иногда отказывает тормоз при выключении, но потом всё приходит в норму.
Pros: Эргономика. Хорошо лежит в руке. Не перевешивает верхняя часть, как у похожих моделей других фирм. Дизайн.
