Lightweight lithium-ion batteries and a charger (both included) save you time and energy.
Offering 44 inch/pounds of torque in a body that weighs less than one pound, the DB3DL has a better power-to-weight ratio than the competition. And with a two-speed transmission that offers maximum no-load speeds of either 200 or 600 RPM, this screwdriver fastens and pre-drills wood, mild steel, aluminum, and more.
Additionally, the DB3DL's 21-stage clutch provides both high torque and precision driving. A reversing trigger switch lets you quickly choose from 0-600 RPM for the job at hand.
Chock-Full of User-Friendly Features
In addition to its powerful motor, the DB3DL has a host of features that help you get the job done with comfort and convenience. To start, this screwdriver features a non-slip elastomer-grip handle that makes long jobs more comfortable. The handle is adjustable to two positions, allowing for a choice of straight-grip or pistol-grip operation.
For added convenience, the DB3DL includes a 1/4-inch quick-change hex chuck with bit lock for fast and easy bit changes. An added bonus, an integrated LED work light helps illuminate dark work areas.
Designed to reach places that other cordless screwdrivers just can't, the Hitachi DB3DL is compact and lightweight, measuring 9.75 inches and weighing just 0.9 pounds.
HXP Lithium-Ion Batteries Last 3X Longer and Weigh 50% Less
The DB3DL owes its light weight to two HXP lithium-ion batteries. These 1.5 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--these batteries will last approximately 500 charges before needing to be replaced. Overall, less frequent battery charges and longer battery life mean reduced operation costs for you.
The DB3DL's charger will power the tool's batteries in just 30 minutes and features a built-in Cool Air Flow system to maintain optimal charging temperature.
Every Hitachi cordless power tool is designed to the highest standards and rigorously tested for both performance and durability. Like all HXP lithium-ion cordless tools, the DB3DL comes with a lifetime lithium-ion tool warranty, which protects against possible defects in materials and workmanship. Also, the tool's batteries come with a two-year warranty and the charger comes with a one-year warranty.
What's in the Box
DB3DL cordless driver drill, 2 3.6-volt HXP 1.5 Ah lithium-ion batteries (326263), charger (UC3SFL), and case (326346).

Weight: The Bosch is about twice as heavy. I hardly notice the Hitachi in a pocket or tool belt.
Power: The Hitachi is a light-mid duty tool. It's surprisingly powerful, but the extra voltage in the Bosch enables it to rival larger drill-drivers in all but the most demanding situations.
Versatility: I like the hinged configuration of the Hitachi, enabling you to use it in a straight or pistol-grip configuration. The Bosch is pistol-grip only.
Convenience: The Bosch has a separate reversing switch like the ones found on nearly all power drills. (I frequently curse these switches since I frequently press them by accident and forget to press them when I should.) I prefer the rocker switch on the Hitachi, which is very intuitive and lets me reverse in a single operation. When doing electrical work, it's nice to be able to reverse simply by moving my finger on the trigger.
The Bosch will likely appeal to you if you're looking for something like a conventional drill-driver in a smaller, lighter package without sacrificing too much power. I own 3 Bosch routers and 2 sanders, so I can honestly say that I love Bosch tools. The quality is great. So why didn't I buy the Bosch PS20-2?
I chose the Hitachi because of it's very light weight, comfort, and convenience.Read more ›
1. Is the Hitachi driver really necessary if you already have a cordless drill/driver that you're happy with?
2. Why pick this one instead of its direct competitors?
Answer to Q1: We all know that you can use a drill as a screwdriver quite well, and for larger projects with lots of big wood screws, a 9.6 or 12 volt cordless drill is still the weapon of choice. But there are countless situations where the drill is just too big and hard to control or just plain inconvenient to get out or carry. For example, most people would opt for a hand screwdriver over a drill/driver to work with the screws that fasten the interior trim of a car (this is what I did until I got the Hitachi). The beauty of the this tool is that it's about the same size as a medium hand screwdriver, the only difference being that the Hitachi is about 1.5" in diameter for most of its length while a regular screwdriver is that wide only at its handle. Thus, this tool is really no more difficult to store, transport, and use than a manual screwdriver. Now you have a power tool that - because of the lithium-ion batteries that hold their charge while not being used - is truly no more inconvenient to set up and use than a basic hand tool. And due to the awesome automatic spindle lock feature, you can use the Hitachi as a manual screwdriver, except that you have the option to use the pistol grip as well as the straight configuration.Read more ›
- Battries last forever and are light
- LED is awesome (just wish it was white though, orange is a littel hard to see black screws under)
- Good ergomomic design, but does hinge now and then when you don't want it to
- 2 speed
- Whish it was smaller
- On Off trigger not variable speed
- To go from fast to slow you need to switch a switch
- Chuck is kind of sloppy holding bits
- No place to hold a spair bit or another format bit, I alwas seem to have the wrong bit in it and have to dig around to swap it.
