Hitachi DS18DSAL Lithium-Ion Cordless 18-Volt Compact Driver Drill with Flashlight, Carrying Case and Rechargeable Batteries

Amazon.com

Powered by a long-lasting 1.5Ah lithium ion slide battery, the Hitachi DS18DSAL 18-Volt Compact Pro Lithium Ion Drill/Driver packs a powerful punch. Efficient and easy to handle, this variable-speed tool provides professional power in the most compact, lightweight, and ergonomically designed body currently available. For added convenience, it comes with Hitachi's UB18DAL Lithium Ion Flashlight.



The powerful DS18DSAL features Lithium Ion batteries and a comfortable grip.View Larger.


At only 3.5 pounds, the compact frame is well-suited for overhead work.View Larger.


The clutch has twenty-two driving stages, allowing you control over torque and precision.View Larger.

The kit comes with a flashlight, battery charger, Phillips Driver Bit and carrying case.View Larger.
Compact Design Minimizes User Fatigue Without Sacrificing Performance
The first in Hitachi's compact Pro Series of cordless tools, the DS18DSALmeasures only 7.7 inches in length and weighs 3.5 pounds, making it easy to hold and use all day without stress or strain. The compact design also provides the power and performance of a pro-grade 18-volt tool, making operation as efficient and dependable as it is comfortable.

Variable Speed and 22-Stage Clutch for Versatility
This impressive driver drill features a variable speed trigger to set speed from zero to 350 RPM or zero to 1,500 RPM so you always match the right speed to the job. Additionally, the clutch has 22 driving stages and a special mode for drilling, allowing for both high torque applications and precision driving.

First-in-its-Class Torque for Heavy-Duty Jobs
With unmatched torque in its class, the DS18DSAL powers through even the toughest jobs. 460 in./lbs. of torque gives this easy-to-handle model the necessary boost to take on hardwoods, masonry, and other heavy-duty drilling.

Belt Hook, LED Light, and 1/2-Inch Ratcheting Chuck for User-Friendly Operation
The DS18DSAL comes with a convenient metal belt hook and an LED job light to illuminate your work surface. It also features a keyless 1/2-inch ratcheting metal chuck that accepts a wide variety of bits, giving you greater flexibility. Finally, externally accessible carbon brushes allow you to easily and economically replace the brushes when they are worn, thus ensuring longer tool life.

Lightweight 1.5 Ah Lithium Ion Slide Battery for Long-Lasting Power
This driver drill is powered by a long-lasting 1.5 Ah lithium ion slide battery. Designed without the vertical chamber of a post-style battery, this battery glides easily into place and allows the DS18DSAL to have an ergonomic handle. And because this Lithium Ion battery weighs roughly half as much as a NiCd or NiMH battery, you can work longer, with better accuracy.

Steady Stream of Power for Precision and Consistency
As with all of Hitachi's lithium ion batteries, the tool receives a steady stream of power for the duration of every battery charge, from the moment the trigger is pulled until the charge cycle is exhausted. And with up to three times the number of charge cycles of traditional batteries, you won't have to waste money on costly replacements.

Included Lithium Ion Flashlight for Added Flexibility
As a bonus, the DS18DSAL comes with Hitachi's UB18DAL Lithium Ion Flashlight. Adjustable to five lighting positions, this flashlight stands alone while you work and can be aimed where you need illumination. A shoulder strap makes for easy, comfortable carrying, and a low-battery indicator light helps ensure that you don't run out of power mid-use. And because the UB18DAL runs on the same 18-volt slide batteries as the driver drill, it shares the same lithium ion benefits of long battery life, lasting power per charge, and lightweight convenience.

Warranty Information
For even more value and peace of mind, each of these tools is covered by Hitachi's 10-year lithium ion tool warranty and two-year lithium ion battery warranty.

Update: 03/02/2015: Well, After more than five and a half years of good service, I finally did it. I dropped the drill from a 14 foot ladder onto a cement basement floor. The fall broke the edges of the flanges that hold the battery so that the batteries will not stay solidly seated. A little jury-rigging with some Velcro does fix the problem. Amazingly, the drill still works fine... but I am not fooling around. I just ordered another one.

Unfortunately, it comes with a hard case (worthless to me -- the drill is always out on its own shelf for quick access ... and for other out-of-our-home work, I throw it in tool carrier with the rest of the tools I'll need for the job. Also, that (so-called free ... nothing is free) external light, which is a battery-eating halogen, needs one of the Hitachi batteries to operate. Your better off with a decent led work light with bulbs that last about 100,000 hours and have a ten hour - fourteen hour continuous battery run time using AA's. Wake up, Hitachi.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Update: 8/9/2014: We just completed a ten panel lattice fence requiring 56 lath screws per panel with the framing.

This drill is still going strong and has never been serviced in any way... and it has been dropped from three to seven feet on to concrete numerous times ... damage ... twice a broken drill bit.

However, after five years, the batteries last a long time, but not as long as when they were new.

This tool is my first foray into the world of Hitachi. What attracted me most is the feel of the grip and the way the tool doesn't cant forward or backward very much when using it. It's well-balanced, and the motor housing is short which is helpful in tight spaces. The design is different from most other drills. The battery doesn't project into the handle, but instead, slides in like a sled. I do like the "press and drop" battery design of other tools, but this "press and slide" design is easy to get used to. The clutch settings do seem a bit lighter than other drills, but on the other hand, the lighter settings on the drill are very nice for doing delicate work like setting #6 pan head screws to 1/8-inch oak plywood without imbedding the pan into the plywood. I haven't tried driving #10 screws into oak without a pilot hole. Personally, I like to drill a pilot in hardwoods so I don't risk breaking the head off of the screw. A #10 of any length will go in hardwood just fine with a pilot hole drilled first.

Positives: light weight, small for tight spaces, ergonomic, lithium ion batteries, ease of drill bit lock-up in the chuck, LED work light, and a very nice carrying case.

Minus(?). My only concern is to echo a previous review...I had no idea when I bought the tool that it is the only one Hitachi makes at this time with this battery design. It is new. Though lithium ion batteries last a long time and they have no charge "memory," at some point (1,000 charge cycles or so) they need to be replaced. It would be more comforting if the battery was universal to the product line.

One more thing...why the flashlight? The carrying case could be made smaller without it.

I have owned this drill for over one year and am very pleased with its compact size and torque. I have drilled 3/4" holes through some tough 2" X 10" joists and loved the torque. My problem is with the batteries, I have had one fail in less then 5 months. If you have read other reviews on other sites you would see that this is a common problem. Because of the batteries I had to give the package only three stars and at that I thought I had been quite generous.

Verified Purchase
Great product! I received my drill just in time for the meat of my bedroom and bath addition. In a few short weeks I've put this drill to the test, charging and recharging the batteries for 12 hour+ days. I've used it for sheet rocking, extensive hole drilling, under the house work and everything else. It's been roughed up and still drills like a charm. I especially like the light weight. If you're going to do a lot (or even a little) work with your drill - light weight is the way to go. I've given the light minimal use but it seems to work just fine.
I know there's higher end drills with more torque and speed on the market but for a much higher price tag. If your a do-it-yourselfer, this is the drill; plenty of torque and speed. By the way, I've never taken the time to review a product before but felt strongly enough about this one to put in a good word. I did the research on the online blogs and on consumer reports before purchasing. This drill measures up.

Had to buy a new drill in the middle of putting up 5 tiers, 4 sections, warehouse wood shelving. The Dewalt 14.4v, which I liked, went up in smokes after 5 yrs. Bought this Hitachi without any research, and was not disappoint. This drill is very compact and light, lighter than my 12v Dewalt. The battery came out of the box already charged, ready to go, which I appreciated cause I didn't have time to wait for initial charge-up. Each 1.5A lit-ion battery lasted about the same as a Ni-Cad, but much lighter and slimmer. Recharged takes 15-20 minutes. At 460in-lb, it easily drives 2 1/4 screws and sometimes 3in ones I was using, and 2 1/2 masonry screws pre-drilled. Was initially very skeptical of the belt hook but turned out to be a very convenient feature and didn't drop the drill through a lot of movement up and down the ladder. The led light gives a good added feature to work under low lighting conditions like under the shelves.

The extra flashlight is something I don't plan to use and seems a useless extra that could be taken out of the package to save buyers money. The case is ridiculously big. I had to put out a little more money for a bag to carry the drill and charger.

The green color and the stupid design on the drill make the drill look like a toy, but the performance is far from being one. I highly recommend this drill for extensive use. It lessen the wrist fatigue with its light weight and gives you very good driving power.
