Hitachi’s brushless-motor drill

Hitachi Power Tools has announced the launch of its new line of 18-volt brushless-motor lithium ion cordless products. Hitachi’s DS18DBL 18V Lithium Ion Brushless Driver Drill is the first in the series.

The DS18DBL delivers 593 inch-pounds of turning torque. Its 1/2-inch ratcheting keyless chuck is all-metal for maximum durability, and the 22-stage clutch delivers 22 torque settings and a drill setting. Unique to the DS18DBL is an electronic speed control switch. Coupled with the two-step gearing feature, this allows for eight calibrations.
