HASH(0x9ac9cac8) out of 5 stars Did my homework. Hitachi drills were the right purchase... May 5 2009
By Wes - Published on
Got this combo kit last Thursday. Used the impact drill to drive (7) 1/2 X 4 inch lag screws into a 2X10 ledger. Then used the power drill to drill various 2.5 and 3 inch deck screws into the ledger/joist hangers for a deck extension.

Then used the power drill with an auger attachment to pre-drill my 16 inch wide by 16 inches deep holes in the ground for my deck footing piers. Drill did not die. Just backed out of tree roots and then kept going. Started at 7am and the power drill battery died on me at 6:30pm. Switched to the impact drills battery and kept digging holes. Charged the dead battery, but by quitin time (8:15pm) didn't need to change the 2nd battery.

This is exactly the type of performance that I wanted. Though I'm by electricity, I did not want to hassle with corded tools (other then my handy chopsaw). Got the circular saw and reciprocating saw coming enroute through Fed Ex tomorrow. After the rain passes by Wed of this week, I should be able to test the way the batteries last with the circular saw/sawzall. Got some 6 X 6 posts, 2X10X12 & 2X4's to rip.

Judging by how the batteries performed with drilling the holes for the piers, I'm expecting them to allow for quite a number of rips. I think I'm getting my monies worth ouot of the drills, that's for sure.


The 3 inch deck screws went into the treated lumber like it was slicing through butter. REALLY.

The battery life is AWESOME. I wanted the Makita tools. After reading up on Hitachi and now having used them, I don't regret passing on the higher priced Makita tools.

HASH(0x9ac9ced0) out of 5 stars Hitachi... Worth it?... I think so. Dec 10 2010

I compared the Makita, Milwaukee, and this Hitachi. All were Li-ion, all are 18volt, all were combo sets. For the drill, what I found was the Makita had 450in-lbs torque. The Milwaukee had 400 in-lbs, and the Hitachi has 560in-lbs. The Impact driver for the Makita has around 1270in-lbs and the Milwaukee has 1400in-lbs. The Hitachi has 1330. The Hitachi also has a "power" button on the grip. Push up to get the full popwer of the tool, push down to "S" and you'll save battery life. What I've noticed is that the rpm's are slower. It lacked nothing on torque for what I was doing (driving Tapcons).
At the time I purchased this, the Makita was around $300 (+/- a few bucks) and the Hitachi was $284. The Milwaukee was $199. I chose the Hitachi for the increase in torque over the others.
I've used the Makita at work and I like it as well. Both the Hitachi and the Makita have led lights to help out in dark corners. The Hitachi has an orange color and the Makita has a bluish white color. The Makita turns on automatically when you depress the trigger and stays on a few seconds after you release it. The Hitachi has a small button you use to enable the light on or off. I don't recall reading that the Milwaukee had a light, it may, but I'm not sure.
Any cons with the Hitachi? A few, just enough that I didn't give 5 stars. These are just "picky" problems and take nothing away from the abilities of this drill.
One... it weighs a bit less than the Makita and feels "slightly" less durable. The Makita has a bit more rugged feel to it.
Two... the charger takes longer than the 15 minute charger for the Makita. I've not timed it exactly, but it's between 1/2 hr to 45 min to recharge.
Three... This is just a bit of a nuisense, but according to Hitachi's description page, it's a drill protection thing. When the drill needs recharged, it flat out stops. I'd finish driving one screw and the time it takes to place another screw on the bit and pull the trigger... it won't run. This can be a buggar depending on what you're doing.
Four... I'd prefer a hard case instead of a bag, but that's just me.

I would definitely recommend this combo kit. I'm a carpenter and it does whatever I throw at it. Also, on Hitachi's description page it let's you know that there is a 10 year warranty on the drivers and a 2 year on the batteries.

HASH(0x9addc324) out of 5 stars Best Drills!! Look No Further March 11 2008
By Eli Saravia - Published on
Bought these a few months ago and they are wonderful drills. The impact wrench has AMAZING power. It's hard to believe how much power that little thing can put out. I used an older Hitachi impact wrench at work until it went missing over a weekend. It must have been the one tool with the most demand at the work site. I replace it a couple of days later by buying this two-piece set here at Amazon. I would advice you to consider buying the two separately, that way for only $70 more you end up with 4 batteries and 2 chargers (each one is worth over $100!!) In the set you only get 2 batteries and 1 charger. Either way the drills are just amazing!! Be prepared to have everybody at work coming around trying to borrow them! Enjoy!!

HASH(0x9addc2f4) out of 5 stars Well..... I suppose that it could have been less expensive Nov. 22 2010

But really the only thing that might have been is a bit more available in Tulsa. We had to mail order to get it but we understand that there is local warranty service.

We went out to buy Rigid because of a friend's recommendation on his purchase of a drill and impact combo but soon found out that though it's on Rigid's web site that combo is -no longer available-??? Rigid is now sold exclusively through Home Depot and they have no interest in anything that won't sell in massive quantities. It was a VERY irritating experience finding that out.

The Hitachi kit arrived in 2 days, just what we ordered. Both Drill and Impact Driver have incredible power, start at VERY low speeds, speed up easily, and stop on a dime. With the two included batteries and charger as long as you start with a full battery and the other in the charger it's virtually impossible to run out of power. Also we really like the canvas bag rather than a molded plastic case that the snap closures break too soon on and are almost guaranteed not to hold some accessory that you decide to try to carry in it.

These tools are a bit more expensive (and heavier due to the 3AH batteries) than the homeowner models but the added power in the motors and the longer run time from the batteries far more than make up for it.

Bottom line - after a month or so - it was a great choice.

HASH(0x9addc36c) out of 5 stars Great Value Nov. 8 2009
By KZIWarrior - Published on
I won't attest for "professional" use but for you above average home-owner (or Ranch hand) these drills are great. Received this combo last week and started putting it to work on misc jobs around the farm. Finally decided to put the drills to the test putting a 2x8 border around a small horse arena. Both drills have loads of power and could easily drill 3.5" screws through the 2x8s and into the heavy creosote (i.e. dense, hard) posts. Even with the "save" mode the drills had no trouble and care had to be used to ensure the screws weren't pulled through the 2x8s (no pre-drilling needed). Battery life is excellent and both drills lasted a full day (5-6 hours) of continuous use with no noticeable loss of power. Only advice is to get a kit with a quick-change bit for the larger drill but these drills are perfect for medium to heavy use. The only downside is the cordless charger is a bit on the loud side (it has a fan to cool the batteries when they charge) but it's worth the occasional noise considering how long the batteries last and the quick charge time (hasn't taken more than 30 mins to fully charge the batteries).
