"Bought this set early 2012 as my builder recommended it. its been used alot. The drill driver is just handy but the impact driver is the real star, never had one before, but my oh my, how have i ever done without one to put all types of screw and bolts in. It may be small and light, thats an advantage anyway but it does pack a punch, easily does upto 75mm screws, reaching limit when doing 4" screws. See the builder regularly and his set has just given out after 7years continual use. Since bought other Hitachi products as so well made."
"bought this drill back in June because I was starting a kitchen extension so was expecting to use this drill a lot and believe me it has had some hammer from roof fixing to drilling out on wood and driving 4inch screws, it has been tested to the max and has never let me down charge time is quick although at times I could have used a extra battery as it was being used continually. overall this drill has been used and tested to the full and would recommend to anyone."
"We have several drills, all with NiH batteries. We use them intermittently and the batteries are always flat if unused for a day or two. The Hitachi kit fits our needs exactly and with Li batteries will be avaialble immediately when needed. When not required the kit tucks away very conveniently for storage or very handily for an off site job.
We have not had the kit long enough to assess performace properly, let alone reliability!"
"Was on the hunt for a replacement for my trusty Dewalt drillls and was in the local Screwfix store in Aberdeen. My natural inclination was to go for new Dewalt drills. However, a great benefit was being able to handle all the drills on display. You got a really good impression of how the drills would handle in your hands - the weight and balance for the jobs you plan to undertake. Also for me was the recharge time and this Hitachi was a fast 40 minute fast charge. The holdall bag was a bonus. I've now been using the drills for 3 weeks and the usage Vs the battery life is superior to my Dewalts. Very pleased with the performance. I have changed the battery packs after 30 or 40 minutes and they always seem to have the full charge, Torque and hammer drill work to their stated operating performance guidelines and when using the hammer drill function, I noticed that the battery never struggled when tackling some hard concrete drilling. Absolutely chuffed with my purchase and would recommend to any DIY'ers"
"Fantastic value for money LION twin set. Very light and easy to handle with plenty of punch. Weighing these up against much more expensive drill/driver and impact driver sets i'd say that this was a fantastic purchase. I've never had problems in the past with Hitachi tools and would recommend this product to anyone."
