Hitachi Power Tools Introduces 18V Brushless Lithium Ion Technology
Hitachi Power Tools announced the launch of its new 18V Brushless Motor Lithium Ion cordless products with a comfortable, ergonomic design, now available at Lowes.
The power tools are powered by high capacity 3.0Ah lithium ion slide type batteries for fade free power, less weight and three times the total battery life of traditional Ni-Cd batteries. They also feature optical trigger switches that communicate with the micro-processor and deliver smoother motor acceleration.
The DV18DBL Brushless Hammer Drill delivers professional grade power with 654 in-lbs of turning torque. Its ½” ratcheting keyless chuck is all metal for maximum durability and includes carbide inserts for secure bit retention when hammering into concrete. The 22-stage clutch delivers 22 torque settings, a hammer setting and a drill setting—all controlled by a single aluminum clutch ring. The user can select from 4 micro-processor controlled settings. Coupled with two-step mechanical gearing, this allows for eight different speed/power calibrations providing the user with the ability to finely set the driver drill depending on the application.
The WH18DBDL Brushless Impact Driver is compact at just 6” in length and lightweight at 3.7 lbs. The driver also tackles heavy applications like tightening and loosening carriage bolts, driving lags and sinking deck screws. Additionally it can drill into wood, metal and concrete. Other features include:
- 4 micro-processor controlled speeds: 0-900/1,400/2,000 or 2,600 RPM
- limited impact mode in addition to traditional continuous impact mode
- ¼” hex chuck
- two 3.0Ah Lithium Ion Slide Type batteries
The battery charger (UC18YRSL) that accompanies Hitachi Brushless tools will power 14.4V and 18V lithium ion slide type batteries in about 45 minutes or less. The tools are covered by Hitachi’s Lifetime Lithium Ion Tool warranty and 2-Year Lithium Ion battery warranty.
