This is a great value. Most bang for the buck out there!
Ed13, Hitachi Power Tools
1 December 2014
Summary: I bought this tool on clearance at Menards. I already own the impact gun, drill, and saw-zall. This would have been a great deal for just the high capacity batteries and new charger but the value goes well beyond there.
Summary: I had a previous Hitachi Li-ion drill and it worked well for years. The handle cracked and I had to get a new cordless drill. The packaging for the new drill had what looked like the same Li-ion battery which is one of the reasons I bought it so I could use the older Hitachi drills still good power...
Summary: Only used on my ice auger to drill 6 inch holes thru 20+ inches of ice. Works well and battery lasts longer than some drills at twice the cost. I am sure it will serve it's intended purpose just as well.
Summary: I bought this tool to start a push-mower. Worked fine for four months but won't turn it over now -even after buying new battery. Worked great on disaster response projects, installed tin on 2000 sq ft bldg., built , and 300 sq ft deck. Charger fan is very noisy.
Excellent but charger gives it overall mediocre appeal

Summary: Well balanced and plenty of power. It is excellent for drilling in light concrete and bricks. LED colour is dark yellow so no much help out of it. I wonder howmuch white LED would cost ... a penny more? Charger is unreasonably huge, I mean outrageously bulky.
Summary: This is my fifth Hitachi cordless tool. I work in a major hardware retailer and see the returned tools prior to being accepted. The Hitachi tools have a good track record and have specs/performance that that make them a better buy. The batteries are consistently better in the lithiun-ion area.
Summary: This unit was one of the few that offered full size Lithium Ion batteries for a reasonable price and it delivers on nearly all fronts. You can't touch this unit in terms of price in any of the other pro models; even the Sears consumer units cost a lot more and deliver much less in terms of build and...
