Good Value Drill
06-Aug-2014
By

"Comes with a decent case which also holds the charger and three batteries.
I used the click and collect service which worked well and picked up the drill within minutes.
Instructions are fairly comprehensive and although the English is a little awkward in places they were easy enough to understand. Batteries charged rapidly although there is a warning not to charge more than two consecutively, presumably because the charger gets quite warm.
The drill worked really well on the first few jobs I used it on, mostly the hammer function.
Haven't had it long enough to check reliability but it seems well made.
At the price offered it represents great value for money.

"A huge step up from my previous cordless drill - lighter, better balanced, two speeds, but, most importantly so much more power for so much longer.
The batteries re-charge very quickly, and snap in and out just as they should.
I'm just a DIY-er, but this feels like a proper professional tool, for a very reasonable price.
Very pleased."

"Have owned several Hitachi products including 2 similar drills. One of those was nicked (kind of a positive review, I suppose) the other lasted more than 5 years of continuous work, till batteries died (replacement more than new drill- bad point - but common to all manufacturers). If this one does half as well, I'll be very happy. Feels good so far!
Hitachi generally seem to be one of the best, most reliable of makes.

Reliable as ever Hitachi

"I switched back to hitachi as I find that other main players were not as reliable as promised . Having used my hitachi electric drill over 26 years now and still performing it far outlasted anything Makita or DeWalt could deliver. Only matched by my Atlas Copco SDS drill for reliability and My Hilti Sds. Don't be seduced by expensive alternatives whereby you are paying for the name brand only. Trust in Hitachi.The three battery option should be standard on all drill/drivers for us tradesmen."

"After using this drill for 3 years now, I have nothing but praise, it has never let me down on any material. I use it almost every day.
Granted that it uses a lot of power when on full torque, but no tradesman would use it that way all the time, and with 3 batteries not a problem.

"I rate myself as a serious DIYer not a Tradesman. This Drill was adequate for my needs but if you are a Tradesman I would suggest that you spend a bit more and get yourself the Lithium Ion Battery model to ensure you don't run out of Battery power. If your going to be driving serious sized screws for an eight hour day you need to guarantee power if you want to earn money. No Power equals No Work equals No Pay!!!
That said it keeps me going on my DIY projects for a day due to the benefit of having three batteries. Previously I have brought cheaper drills that don't have the build quality"

"Bought this drill on the Screwfix £99.99 offer, used it to build a kitchen, and haven't regretted it for a moment.
The Hitachi is joyously light, compact and powerful compared with my old drill. The batteries - THREE of them - last a lot longer than some people here are suggesting, or at least mine have done so far. Time will tell.
I particularly like how well the keyless chuck grips the bit without having to draw blood when tightening the collar.
At under £100 you can't go wrong."

Hitachi cordless drill great

"I purchased the Hitachi DV18DVC2/JD 18V 1.2Ah Ni-Cd Cordless Combi Drill to replace my old cordless drills.
The reason for the Hitachi is because it came with two spare batteries which meant that I did not have to worry about stopping to recharge the battery or pay out for a spare battery.
The drill itself works very well as both a drill and screw driver.
I am glad I opted for this model.

"Had this drill/driver for a few years now and have used it to finish off my last house and to start on the new house.
I tend to use it for everything from drilling into masonry, metal and wood and mostly for anything needing a screwdriver throughout the house.
It always works faultlessly and I find the features great - the collar to set the torque/drilling action has a lovely light feel, espcially compared to my old B&D driver.
The standing angle is ideal for putting down between actions, and the overall weight is good without being too light/heavy.
The standard bit it comes with has had some hammer from me but is still spot on.
Would buy another in a shot."

"But concerned over battery life. As a DIY'er I expect longevity from my tool purchases. I have concern over the length of time that the batteries will last. I bought a similar model some time ago but the batteries are now useless. I have noted that this new drill which I bought this week (4-6-2014) was manufactured in 2012, will the batteries last. My main reason for buying the drill was to get new batteries as at £44 each I got 3 for £90. The reliability is for the drill not the batteries, the only thing I have found against the drill is that it won't penetrate Welsh stone."

"Only 1.2Ahr , I've got 10+ various 9.6 - 18v Makitas, & is just as good & a relative cheapy too .
Hasn't quite got the toque grunt of 1.3Ah Makitas, somehow , but 3 batteries makes it very attractive & its 22 torque settings are a lot more sensitive .
Hammers good too
