Powerful Drilling, Driving, and Fastening
With enough power to rival professional automotive wrenches, the WH18DL has an industrial-grade two-piece motor that features heavy-gauge copper coils for maximum power and long-lasting performance. And you know the WH18DL will pack a punch: it delivers an impact rate of up to 3,200 BPM, a no-load variable speed of 0-2,600 RPM, and up to 1,330 in./lbs. of torque. For ultimate control, a unique two-step speed switch allows you to select between two power settings: Power Mode (0-2,600 RPM) and Save Mode (0-2,000 RPM).

With all that power, you have to keep things cool. Thankfully, Hitachi's unique cool flow technology sends a steady stream of air to the motor, which enables the impact to run harder and longer than most impact drivers without risking burnout.

Full of User-Friendly Features
Like all Hitachi tools, the WH18DL is full of features that were designed with the user in mind. To start, a non-slip Elastomer grip keeps you in complete control of the tool and provides comfort for all-day jobs. What's more, the driver weighs only 3.5 pounds, so it is extremely easy to maneuver and transport. A patented five-position belt hook with integrated LED offers easy portability, as well as illumination in dimly lit areas.

For further convenience, the WH18DL features a quick-change bit system that makes changing drill bits as easy as can be. The 1/4-inch hex chuck requires no tools for bit changes--simply pull out, insert the bit, and release the chuck. An added bonus, integrated storage right on the tool holds two additional bits.

Additionally, the WH18DL is fitted with externally accessible carbon brushes and replaceable armature for easy maintenance and longer overall life.

HXP Batteries Last Three Times Longer and Weigh 50% Less
The WH18DL owes its light weight to two HXP Lithium-Ion batteries (included). These 3.0-Ah batteries weigh half of what traditional NiCd or NiMH batteries weigh. In fact, tools featuring HXP batteries are on average one pound lighter than tools using traditional batteries.

Additionally, HXP batteries last three times longer than their competition. Where NiCd and NiMH batteries could be used for up to 500 charge cycles, HXP Lithium-Ion batteries can be used for up to 1,500 charge cycles! An added bonus, the included quick charger replenishes the battery power in just 40 minutes, so you have less down time.

HXP Lithium-Ion batteries operate within optimal voltage limits, protecting both the tool and batteries from damage. Protection circuitry built into the batteries and charger monitors the charge and discharge for each battery cell, resulting in peak operating performance.

And if a surge in power is detected during use, Hitachi's Over-Current Protection technology will temporarily shut of the power to protect the batteries and tool from being damaged. This feature allows the power to return to optimal voltage, thereby extending battery and tool life beyond any competitive lithium-ion products.

HXP batteries come with a two-year HXP Lithium-Ion Battery Warranty, which protects against possible defects in materials and workmanship.

The Industry's Longest Lithium-Ion Tool Warranty
Every Hitachi cordless power tool is designed to the highest standards and is rigorously tested for both performance and durability. All HXP Lithium-Ion cordless tools come with a Lifetime Lithium-Ion Tool Warranty, which protects against possible defects in materials and workmanship.

One of the best tools I have ever owned.
Michael S. Neat
The impact driver is also shorter (in the direction of the drill bit) so that it is much easier to fit it into tight spaces.
Kenneth Boyd
Screws drive extremely fast, and without stripping.

Style Name: 1330 in/lbs torque
First of all, if you're new to the world of impact drivers you have to get on board. It's just as simple as that! But seriously, if you're still driving screws/lag bolts/whatever with a drill or a ratchet, you're just working too hard. The torque is astounding, and this unit nearly matches the big beefy pneumatic impact drivers in a much nicer package. So when you see those giant lag screws you need to attach that deck ledger with you will not even sweat putting them in.

I think the bigger advantage is that, unlike a drill, the impact action means that the torque is in bursts so it doesn't crank the drill around. With a drill you are usually doing just as much work as the drill (though with a bit of mechanical advantage). Even screwing in a bunch of smaller screws requires you to counteract the twisting force. Not so with an impact driver. You can virtually drive small and large screws alike with two fingers (the way you'd hold a wine glass).

Now about this tool in particular... This tool is meant to drive screws more than large bolts. I have a beefy impact driver I use for most of those applications simply because the tip of this driver is for a "standard" hex shaft bit with a ball-detent. I'm sure the driver has the power to drive them if you have the right bit. I've been using it for over a year now (I got it at a trade show the week it was released but before it was in stock). The battery life is outstanding. They hold their charges well between uses, and have survived banging around the back of my van for a while now.

The fit, finish, and features are all excellent.

Style Name: 1330 in/lbs torque Verified Purchase
Bought this back in Feb '08 and have used it a number of times for smaller projects, though my big projects are ahead. Impressed so far and I give it 5 stars for build quality, value, performance, and general coolness (I like the look that some find toyish).

One area that I'd like to see improved is the grip. (This is entirely personal, and not major enough to detract from the overall rating of the tool) I have smaller hands and find the lower portion (ring, pinky finger) of the grip to be slightly larger than I like. For reference, try out the Makita Impact Drivers (Makita BTD140 LXT 18 Volt Lithium-Ion Impact Driver Kit, Makita BTD142HW 18V Lithium-Ion Cordless Impact Driver). They have the most comfortable grips IMHO. But this does not detract from the Hitachi which has more torque, faster RPMs, etc. (Exception being Makita's new BDT141 which has 1330 lbs. torque)

Battery life has been outstanding. I have not drained the first battery yet, seen absolutely no loss of torque/RPM as happens with standard batteries. My 18V Black & Decker 18V drill cannot hold a candle to the WH18DL.

Another buying point for me is the little white (red on some) switch on the handle that allows you to slow the RPMs. Handy when you don't want to drive too fast. Makita does not have this option, fwiw. In the fast mode you get from 0-2600 RPM and in slow you get from 0-2000 RPM - and it makes a big difference. The Makita models go fro 0-2300 RPMs only. So for me, the Hitachi allows for more nuanced work.

Style Name: 1330 in/lbs torque
This little machine is incredible. It is my most used power tool. I am a remodeler, I wasn't sure if I should believe the hype about impact drivers, but I gave it a try anyways. I have never looked back. As a professional this doesn't take the place of a Drill/Driver But for most applications it is faster and easier. (For a homeowner it would be a much nicer tool to have than a drill)

Power. It has loads of power. The speed is very good, especially when it isn't impacting. It takes less effort to use than a drill because of the impacting you don't need to push as hard on it to grip the screw. It also does a nice job with a drill bit, or even a speed-bor.

It does look like a toy, but it is one of the nicest tools I have

The first reviewer stated that he could not regulate the clutch on this driver and that the clicking was kind of loud - um, it's an impact driver - that's how they work, it's not a clutch that ratchets, that is the impact mechanism working - that's why there is twice the torque in an impact driver as in a standard driver-drill... This impact driver is stronger than almost all other brands, and actually is not as loud as most other brands.

Style Name: 1330 in/lbs torque
I've used my cordless impact every day at work for the past two months. It's lighter than my previous Hitatchi 14.4, and has way more power. The battery charges in around 45 min, might take longer now that the weather is getting warm. The only drawback I've found is when the battery dies... its dead, you can't squeeze one more screw out of it like you could with the old style batteries. It's like someone flipped a switch full power to no power when the battery dies. This could be problematic when working off a ladder or scaffolding, but with a 3.0Ah battery and a 45 min. charge time, just grab a fresh one before you head up. Highly recommended.
