Comment:
I bought this to replace a Dewalt 14.4 volt XRP as I could not find replacement batteries for it. This drill outperforms the Dewalt hands down...50% lighter in feel and just as much power and torque. Dewalt is much heavier due to the battery and after 10 years of use needs new brushes.<br />Only problem with the Hitachi was one of the batteries that came with it would not charge after a few cycles...bought a bigger battery and never looked back. <br />This is an excellent tool...you will not regret purchasing it!

Comment:
It's small size and weight are great when working off the ground or overhead. Also good in tight spaces. Has enough power to run in 3 1/2 screws. Sure larger tools with longer battery life are good but half an hour into the job your arms are falling off! Small enough to stow in an apron pocket with the screws. One Con is abrupt shutdown of battery, so carry a spare in the other pocket.
