Summary: I've had the Hitachi WH18DSAL for just about a year now; I love this tool. I'm a finish electrician & beside my t-strippers, its my most used tool. The company I work for supplies Bosch tools, and this impact is just as powerful, battery last just as long, but this impact is lighter & more comfortable to carry & use for 8-10 hours.
Summary: One battery wouldn't hold its first out-of-the-box charge. The second one died 2 months later. I'll be returning it to Hitachi this week. I can't comment on the tool itself because it was usually out of service.
This product hs the right price and good features.

Summary: I take this drill every where I go. Light weight, And has power to spare. I do a lot of wood working and it will put the screws in the toughest wood. I would recommend this drill to any one who need the extra power to do there work. The price was right.
Summary: this is the first impact driver i have owned.when i bought it i really didn't know what to expect.i have used this tool to help install windows on an old house trailer that require about 40 nut headed screws per window. nine windows required 360 screws. the hitachi handled the chore with ease and made the job go quickly.
this product has plenty of power,performence and durability
