Hitachi 18V Lithium Ion Brushless Driver Drill
March 15, 2012

Hitachi Power Tools’ 18V Lithium Ion Brushless Driver Drill (3.0Ah) – the DS18DBL-  offers brushless technology that is delivered via a micro-processor chip that manages the tool’s motor, resulting in up to 50% longer run time between charges, increased power, and extended durability with essentially no maintenance. Hitachi’s ergonomic design for the DS18DBL tool body makes it extremely well-balanced and comfortable for extended use. Hitachi’s DS18DBL 18V Lithium Ion Brushless Driver Drill is part of a series that also includes a hammer drill, impact driver and impact wrench. Powered by a 3.0Ah Lithium Ion slide type battery for fade free power, less weight and 3x the total battery life of traditional Ni-Cd batteries, Hitachi  optimized the design of the tool. Since the new slide type Lithium Ion battery pack eliminates the vertical battery cell chamber, it permits the handle to be ergonomically designed, resulting in improved comfort and greater control.
