If you are planning on buying this set, you should seriously consider spending about $70 more and buying them separately. Why? Well in the set you only get 2 batteries and 1 charger. If you buy them separately, you end up with 4 batteries and 2 chargers! A set of 2 spare batteries and 1 charger goes for $250, see this link:

I actually wish I would have figured this out before I ordered because I would love to have a couple of extra batteries and another charger, although it has not been an issue yet. The batteries actually hold up very well. But for ony $70 more, I would defenitely buy them separately.
I was first introduced to a Hitachi cordless impact drill at work a few months ago. Sadly during a weekend somebody walked off with it. It must have been the most used, and most barrowed, tool in the whole workplace. That was an older 12V version of it. I honeslty had never seen an impact wrench so small and so powerful. It took a couple of days for us to realize our beloved drill was not coming back.
I had already realized that at one point I was going to end up getting one of these for myself, so I had already done my research. I had decided that when the time would come I was going to get the WH18DL Impact Wrench which is the New 18V version of this wonderful little work horse. I had already started to like this set of two drills, which include the DV18DL Hammer DrillHitachi DV18DL 18-Volt Lithium-Ion 1/2-Inch Cordless Hammer Drill and also the Hitachi WH18DL 18-Volt Lithium-Ion Cordless Impact Driver.
Well, the time came when we realized our baby was gone and whoever took it was not planning to bring it back. Could we blame that person? Thief!
I looked online and found the best price (by about $30) at another online store. However, their shipping charges came out to about $120, and they did not specify how long it would take for my order to be processed. I figured it could take a week before my order even ships out. I did not have 7, 10 or more days to wait for my tools to arrive.
Well I ordered it from Amazon. I paid $30 more for the drill set, but I saved about $70 dollars on shipping charges. Even better, I received them the following day at the worksite! The other online store was charging about $120 for UPS Ground. Amazon charged me about $50 for Overnight delivery. Not bad at all!
The drills have been used quite consistently. If I'm not using them, usually somebody else is. I should start renting them out to my co-workers.
The drills are loved by everyone who uses them. Everyone tells me how impressed they are! And of course, they all say they are going to go out and get one of their own. Get your own and stop bugging me! I am telling you, be prepared to have everybody coming around all the time trying to borrow them!! They are a thing of beauty.
Showed combo kit to job site workers and they loved it, maybe because it was brand new or looked a bit like it came from a Transformer movie. One Heavy equipment operator tried it and declared the Hitachi as Contractor Grade performance and quality, ready for heavy duty use. I agree. Did not have chance to use the Impact Driver yet, I don't think I will be disappointed after my initial use of the Hammer drill.
Hitachi does hammer it home with impact in it's latest iteration of this Hammer drill.
I received this kit and started using it right away. The hammer drill is very light and easy to work with. I use this drill most of the day and my arms never get tired. Once nice feature of this drill is the easy acess to change the Carbon burshes, very easy.
The impact drill is also very light. This is a great impact driver and use it a lot for attaching metal studs to each other.
I have only had this kit for a couple of days and will come back in a mnonth or two to give a better update to see how this kit holds up.
