Metabo HPT (formerly Hitachi Power Tools) launched its new 18V Brushless Driver Drill (DS18DBFL2QB) & 18V Brushless Impact Driver (WH18DBFL2QB). These models offer affordable Brushless tool options to get anyone powered up for the holidays. Why the all black tools you ask? Why not! End users love them, and we listened. Now listen to this: just before Black Friday, starting November 27, 2019, check your local Lowe’s, lowes.com and retailers across the country for incredible deals on these models and others, just in time for the holidays.
Metabo HPT’s Brushless motor technology delivers more power to the motor by minimizing unnecessary energy loss through friction and heat. Brushless tools experience longer run time between charges, increased power, and extended durability with essentially no maintenance. The signature ergonomic design for the tool bodies makes them extremely well-balanced and comfortable for extended use. They are covered by Metabo HPT’s Lifetime Lithium-ion tool warranty and 2-year Lithium-ion battery warranty.
These tools both come with a 1.5Ah Lithium-ion battery pack and are compatible with all Metabo HPT and Hitachi 18V slide-type batteries, as well as the MultiVolt battery packs that can deliver 5.0Ah or 8.0Ah of runtime (sold separately). The feel of the brushless tools in hand reflects Metabo HPT’s detailed attention to balance, grip and pressure points, making these tools extremely comfortable to use.
