In the coming months, we’ll add to our 18-volt lithium-ion brushless arsenal with a hammer drill, impact driver and impact wrench, with more on the horizon.
Grand Rapids, MI (PRWEB) March 15, 2012
Hitachi power tools are a prominent topic of discussion among the ToolSelect community, and with Hitachi’s entry into the brushless market with the new 18V lithium-ion brushless drill driver, that discussion is poised to increase.
The cordless drill driver uses a microprocessor to manage the motor, which Hitachi says increases battery life by up to 50 percent. Hitachi notes the lack of having to replace brushes and the elimination of traditional wear on the trigger switch and armature when saying the tool is essentially maintenance-free.
“This brushless drill driver gives users professional-grade power in a cordless tool,” says Chuck Azotea, channel manager with Hitachi Power Tools. “In the coming months, we’ll add to our 18-volt lithium-ion brushless arsenal with a hammer drill, impact driver and impact wrench, with more on the horizon.”
Hitachi claims 593 in-lbs of turning torque and 1,800 RPM combine with improved ergonomics make it a durable, powerful tool for many different jobs. The drill driver comes with a lifetime warranty and the batteries come with a two-year warranty.
Eight speed settings, along with a 22-stage clutch, are intended to help users maximize precision and control across jobs of all sizes. The drill driver features a ½” keyless metal chuck.
“Cordless drill drivers are one of the most popular categories in our community,” says Gerry Barnaby, Director of Excitement with ToolSelect. “As more companies release brushless motors, we’re excited to see how our members react to the growing number of options.”
