Hitachi D10YB 4.6-Amp Reversible Right Angle Drill with Chuck Key and Side HandleThe Hitachi 3/8-Inch Right Angle Drill is built with a powerful 4.6 Amp motor and comes with a dial-in variable speed control, allowing you to maintain your selected speed from 500 to 2,300 RPM under load. The right angle design and low profile, 3-1/4-inch head of this drill allow you to easily reach tight corners and odd angles, making this versatile tool especially suited for plumbing and electrical applications.

Weighing only 3-3/10 pounds, this drill is lightweight and compact for increased comfort and ease of use, while the small grip circumference provides increased maneuverability. The slide switch with lock-on trigger feature offers more comfortable continuous operation, and the removable side handle improves operability and control. The contractor-grade cast-aluminum gear housing is highly durable and efficiently dissipates heat. The drill has a maximum torque of 106-1/5 inch-pounds, with a 7/8-inch wood capacity and a 3/8-inch steel capacity. It includes a heavy-duty industrial 3/8-inch chuck and chuck key and is backed by a 5-year limited warranty extended to the original purchaser.

Smooth Operator I wish my car ran as good as this drill. This is my first Hitachi tool and its the smoothest running drill I own. And I have lots of different brands. Plenty of power, enough to drive 3″ screws into pressure treated lumber with ease (while being in a tight space). The controls took a little getting used to. It has an on/off switch with a speed dial at the bottom. But it’s very easy to shut off, just tap the switch. It’s got the old fashioned keyed chuck, but after going over it, you…

Hitachi excellence and attention to detail! First of all, I want to clarify something in another review of this product. The type of switch on this product is for tight space! It is impossible to maintain a firm grip (control) on a power tool and operate a paddle switch at the same time. I have used tools in both construction and automotive all of my working life. For example: the old Snap on air ratchets had a index finger (trigger finger) switch. The other inexpensive tools have a paddle switch that all of us in the business call,…

Nice, but………… I bought the Hitachi mainly based upon price because I don’t intend to use this drill on a daily basis. There are some times that only a right-angle drill will do. It is well built and a solid performer but the slide swith is a real bummer! Mostly you will NOT want the drill to run continuously. I whittled away the small catch on the slide (good-bye warranty) and find a much better drilling experience. I now control when the drill runs. But for the switch I would have given it 5 stars.
