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.
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.Read more ›
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.
This Hitachi is similar to the Milwaukee. Only time will tell about build quality. I've learned through the years that a little flex here or there in a tool does not necessarily mean it won't last. This drill has a little more flex than the Makita or Milwaukee, but it still seems well-made. What I like about this drill (as with the Milwaukee and similar Makita) is the compact size. I am a woodworker and often must put screws in tight places (cabinets). This drill/driver has great power to weight/size ratio. I checked out all the brands and this one is the shortest 18V from front to back and top to bottom. Another important feature for a a serious woodworker is a smoothly funstioning ratchet. This one is consistent and smooth. The chuck also works very well.
I totally agree with what others said about the light and case. Skip the light, make the case smaller and put a bit holder on the drill.
About the charger: I've had several different brands of drills and never really needed all the fancy indicators. A light for charging and one for charged is all I need. It would be nice, as one reviewer stated, if the light was on the front so you could tell at a distance when it's charged. On my Milwaukee, I thought I would use the battery level indicator, but I never actually used it. In the real world, you use the battery until it dies and then swap out.Read more ›
