Powers Through the Toughest Jobs with Precision
The DS18DVF3 Driver Drill has a two-piece magnet motor that offers class-leading maximum torque of 400 in/lbs, so you can power through even the toughest jobs. And two-speed transmission is controlled by a one-touch speed knob that lets you choose the right setting for your job–either 0-400 RPM or 0-1,200 RPM.

Also, a 22-stage clutch offers easy adjustments for high torque and precision driving in wood, plastic, steel, and aluminum. And with tool-less clutch adjustment, this drill handles precision fasteners, such as drywall screws, without damaging walls.

Compact, Ergonomic Design for Easy Handling
The DS18DVF3 has all the power you need and is still lightweight and compact enough to provide superior handling. At just 7-3/4 inches in length and weighing just 4.4 pounds, this tool reduces user fatigue and can be used on a ladder or in tight spaces where larger cordless drills can’t reach. An added bonus, a non-slip elastomer grip provides comfort and safety.

Adding to this drill’s easy-handling features is a 1/2-inch keyless chuck that allows for easy bit changes, as well as a belt hook–with two bit holders–that saves time and adds convenience.

Everything You Need in One Package
The DS18DVF3 Kit includes more than just the cordless driver drill. It also includes a high-quality flashlight and a seven-piece bit set to get you started immediately. For further convenience, a protective carrying case stores it all for easy portability from job to job.

Long-Lasting NiCD Batteries Charge in 35 Minutes
The DS18DVF3 kit’s driver drill and flashlight run on 1.4-Ah nickel cadmium (NiCD) batteries (included), which offer longer runtimes and fewer charges than traditional batteries.

The kit’s quick charger fully charges the batteries in just 35 minutes, and you can expect about 300 charges over the life of each battery. An added bonus, the charger is compatible with other Hitachi tools that use NiCD rechargeable batteries (up to 18 volts).

The Hitachi DS18DVF3 Driver Drill Kit with Flashlight is backed by a five-year warranty.

What’s in the Box

A lot of bang for the buck Although the batteries do not seem to last very between charges, there are two of them in the kit along with a quick charger. The specified torque is impressive, but I think that it may be slightly exaggerated. The ergonomics, weight, and overall dimensions are nearly ideal. The box and Hitachi website indicate a 5-year warranty, but the warranty card itself indicates only a one-year warranty. The chuck is pretty cheap, and the trigger doesn’t seem very well-made. The design of the…

don’t drop it! good torque, reasonable battery life for a medium duty drill, charges quickly. the compactness lets it get into spaces many drills won’t reach. down side: cheap plastic housing, doesn’t fit standard holster, attached belt clip won’t hang securely on hammer loop. I dropped mine about six feet and the housing broke completely in two where the handle meets the head. No parts are available yet for this model, so I had to epoxy the housing. If you need a compact drill for the tight places this is…
