Hitachi DV18DL Lithium-Ion Cordless 18-Volt Hammer Drill with Case, Charger and Rechargeable Batteries
The lightweight and tough Hitachi DV18DL 18-volt 3.0-Ah lithium-ion cordless hammer drill with 1/2-inch chuck powers through wood, metal, and aluminum with its class-leading 570 inch/pounds of turning torque. Ideal for professional use, this hammer drill is backed by a lifetime warranty and features 18-volt lithium-ion batteries that boast three times the runtime of traditional batteries, yet weigh 50 percent less.
Included side handle installs easily on top of the tool for better leverage.
Lightweight lithium-ion batteries and a charger (both included) save you time and energy.
The DV18DL's two-piece rare-earth magnet motor produces 570 inch/pounds of torque to power through brick up to 5/8-inch thick, as well as the toughest wood, metal, and aluminum. And with its 22-stage ratcheting clutch and two-step switch, you can select between four speeds for ultimate control: 0-200 RPM, 0-400 RPM, 0-900 RPM, and 0-1,800 RPM. This hammer drill has an impact rate of 0-21,000 for hammer applications.
Chock-Full of User-Friendly Features
In addition to its powerful motor, The DV18DL has a host of features that help you get the job done with comfort and safety. To start, this hammer drill features a soft, ergonomic grip that makes long jobs more comfortable; an included side handle installs easily to provide leverage for drilling through dense materials.
For added convenience, the DV18DL includes a five-position belt hook with an integrated LED work light and two bit holders. Additionally, a spindle lock automatically blocks the spindle when the tool is not in use, enabling convenient bit changes and providing safety. Finally, an externally accessible carbon brush allow for quick and easy maintenance.
The Hitachi DV18DL is compact and lightweight, measuring 9.95 inches and weighing just 4.9 pounds.
HXP Lithium-Ion Batteries Last 3X Longer and Weigh 50% Less
The DV18DL owes its light weight to two HXP lithium-ion batteries. 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!
HXP lithium-ion batteries operate within optimal voltage limits, protecting both the tool and batteries from damage. Protection circuitry built into the included batteries and charger monitors the charge and discharge for each battery cell, resulting in peak operating performance.
Additionally, 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 are backwards compatible with all Hitachi 18-volt DMR, DVF3, and DFL tools. These batteries come with a two-year HXP lithium-ion battery warranty, which protects against possible defects in materials and workmanship.
Quick Charger Powers Batteries in 45 Minutes
The DV18DL's charger will power the tool's batteries in just 45 minutes and features a built-in Cool Air Flow system to maintain optimal charging temperature. The DV18DL's included quick charger will power lithium-ion, NiCD, and NiMH batteries from 7.2 volts to 18.0 volts.
Hitachi offers a one-year HXP lithium-ion charger 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 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.

The one thing I will watch for while continuing to use this tool is to use the attchment handle in high torque situations. I took back two of these at work where the contractor used only the handle to control the torque and the handle cracked. They both admitted to used oversized bits at the time the handle cracked. Although a little heavier that a standard 1/2 inch drill the hammer drill has the higher torgue for deck screws and the option of clicking on the hammer drill when sinking extra large screws or lag bolts.
I've been very pleased with the performance and like the five year warranty that you easily register on line. Good perfomance at a good price make it a homeowner best buy and should be seriouly looked at by a discerning contractor.
Power - it has tons
Build quality - every bit as good build and materials as MKE
Batteries - full size 3 amp hour not the 'slim' you see on a lot of others
Charger - universal for all battery types and uses a fan to force air through the battery to keep it cooler during a fast charge
The 'speed' switch on the side of the unit really just limits how far you can pull the trigger.
The fan on the charger is noticeable in quieter environments
Batteries don't have a power meter or wear meter ala lap top batteries. I am sure that would add to the cost a bit it would be helpful.
