Top customer reviews
I'm a homeowner, not a pro, so I needed something for mostly small jobs, but the occasional bigger project. I don't need hammer function. Many of the smaller drills didn't have the power I wanted, but many of the 18V and higher models were heavier than I wanted, or were outside my price range. This drill fits my needs perfectly. Build quality is good and it's not too heavy (thanks to the Li-Ion batteries). It has loads of power for its size and the batteries last a long time. I don't notice any chuck wobble. The ratcheting chuck tightens easily with one hand and holds bits securely. The trigger and all switches are easy to operate. Contrary to one internet review, I did not find the LOW-HIGH switch difficult to move.
One feature that I REALLY like is the charger. It takes about 45 minutes to charge a battery from dead to full, and it has a built-in cooling fan. Many other brands include rapid chargers that work in about 15 minutes or less, but I don't trust them. The faster you charge a battery, the more heat you generate, and too much heat can kill a battery. So I really like that Hitachi took a more reasonable approach. The charge here is fast, but not too fast, and the fan helps to keep the batteries cooler and in good condition. It's safer for the batteries and will help them last longer, meaning that I don't have to spend a load of money on replacements any time soon. Who wants to spend money on new batteries for a drill? Not me.
Minor disadvantages - Don't count on the manual to explain things well. It's fairly easy to accidentally turn on the work light, and since this is powered by small batteries inside the work light they can run down pretty fast. The drill's surface material gets dirty easily and is hard to clean. The latch on the case falls off easily when open.
Although Hitachi's web site claims a 10 year warranty on lithium tools, the warranty is listed here as 5 years, and that's what is stated on the warranty card.
An update: I have now owned it for over a year now and everything is still working great. I haven't had a chance to really use the drill until now. We tore our deck apart and put new boards down. I drilled screws non-stop for hours at a time. The drill has plenty of power to handle job. As the battery wore down, I put in on the charger and it was charged up by the time the second battery wore down so I am pleased about everything for this drill.
