Summary: This is the 2nd one of this model I own and it is great. The only thing lacking is that no bit holder was provided for the screw driver bit. My earlier model Hitachi drill provided on board storage for the double ended bit.
Summary: This cordless drill comes with two rechargeable batteries and a flashlight you can use from one of the two batteries. An excellent drill except for the case and flashlight. The carrying case is too large because of the flashlight.
Summary: I've only used this drill-driver on one small project; but, overall the driving power and battery life are both very good. And, the battery seems to re-charge quickly. While some DIYers may want a lighter drill-driver, I wish this one were a little heavier. I guess I'm still used to the weight of a Ni-Cad vs Lithium-ion driver; the battery is a lot lighter.
Summary: I bought on voltage & battery rating. the 14.4 volts will handle all of your needs unless you use it professionally under extremely demanding circumstances. this is all a home owner or hobbiest needs.you get the power without the extra weight,HITACHI quality and guarantee. good deal!
