"I usually buy cheaper drills, but this time I decided to buy a more expensive model (cheap by professional standards), I am glad I did, the quality is great, the feel of the drill is great, I can't complain about this drill at all . The best prchase I have made in a long long while. Oh and the warranty is superb."
"this is my second cordless drill I have an hitachi mains drill that I have had for 25 years I had a battery drill of a different make that only lasted a couple of years as the battery failed so I went for an hitachi as I am satisfied with the mains one I have and I am not disappointed the quality is excellent and it does what I want so if its as reliable as the mains one I will be completely satisfied."
"Great item, quality feel to it, battery life is excellent and the 40 minute charge is an added bonus + you get 2 battery's with it!, Drills through metal and brick with ease, good torque settings, fan cooled and comes in a sturdy carry case. what more could you ask for!! 4 stars for reliability as only had it a week but comes with 3 year guarantee"
"Have not had it long enough to write a full review so can't give five stars all the way.Nice and light ,plenty of power and really comfortable to hold. Service and advice excellent, can't see me having any problems. Best drill i have owned to-date."
"I decided I needed to buy a decent well known make of drill as I have previously bought unknown names and they are a false economy. couldn't believe it when I saw this Hiatchi for sale on Screwfix with 2 Li-on batteries for under 90quid. I have to say that it is awesome and will fully recommend it to friends. the batteries last a very very long time and charge in no time. coupled with the 3year guarantee this is one of the best buys ive had from Screwfix. Cant comment too much on the reliability as ive only had it for a short time, hence the 4 stars."
"This is the second hitachi drill I have bought from screwfix which in itself speaks volumes. I was so pleased with the performance of the first one and the value it represents. It more than compares with more expensive drills in power and weight and balance. I would thouroughly recommend this drill to anyone."
"This drilling machine is so good that I bought a second one. The batteries also fit my bare Hitachi impact gun so I now have 4 batteries across 3 drills. Remember to read the instructions and do not drain the li-on batteries like you did with ni-cads because it reduces the battery's life."
"Bought one a year ago for a project and its still going strong.
Built a log cabin garden room 6Mtr x 3Mtr x 2.5Mtr used about 2500 gold screws over 100mm. Not once when drilling holes or driving screws did the drill cut out through overheating. Batteries also great when one battery went flat just inserted spare started charging the other and kept going. Drill and batteries in constant use for a minimum of 8 hrs a day. Also had to drill some 12mm holes through four layers of 100mm x 50mm timber to make lintels, again no issues at all. Highly recommended"
"Well balanced in the hand, and easy to work most controls. Charger works in the 40 minutes it says. Chuck is good, clicks around items, and has good grip. Minor critiscms: - only one screwdriver bit supplied with the drill - seems a bit mean! - no electric brake so two hands needed on chuck - not a complaint because that is how it is described; - screwdriving torque control is a good range, but from low to high is almost a whole turn - just takes a bit more time - the payoff for a good range! NB: Reliability not known as not had the item for long enough."
"After a lot of browsing and comparing I chose this drill for its well know name and value for money, batteries can be purchased from the internet which was a consideration as not all makes have this after sales service,the drill is very well made and does the jobs required of it, Really good price too at Screwfix."
