got one of these drills earlier in the year to replace an old dewalt that packed up. Never really thought it would be much good, but it turned out to be a good addition to my kit. Good drill and good price.

in our store they are £189.99 and that was on the SPECIALS SHEEET! heat added

Really excellent tools. Would recommend these to anyone. Very lightweight but incredibly powerful.

As far as I know, they have a ten year guarantee too. (Tool only, not battery or charger)

I bought an hitachi to replace my dewalts about 18 months ago and i have to say they are rubbish .
Ok i bought the ni-cad version but the batteries are all dead .
Now replaced it with a panasonic wow this is a different class .

I wouldn't take much notice of how much they "normally" are. In my experience, prices of Screwfix power tools yoyo all over the place. They're trying to flog the Makita 8391 and two batteries for supposedly £100 off at £100, when a couple of Christmases ago it was £80 with THREE batteries - I know, I have it and it's a great drill. The only disadvantage with NiCd with power tools is that they are heavier for the same capacity.

Ten years is a looong time, so Hitachi obviously have confidence in the build quality.
Well no, it's not as clear-cut as that: it's all down to marketing. If they can sell a lot more of these because of the guarantee then it may make them bucket-loads more than the cost of replacing the very few that people actually bother to claim for when they fail. Most will just buy a new one, especially if the batteries are starting to fail (which they will, way before 10 years is up) as we all know how expensive batteries on their own cost.

This along with the 3.0 Makita we've got on at £149.99 are sparkling deals.
Plus we've got Scruffs fleeces at £11.99 - they're pretty cool too.

That's may be true, but when i originally bought mine, there was no mention of the length of the warranty on the B&Q product description and there's no mention of it on the Screwfix description either, so as far as marketing goes, the warranty isn't being blatantly used to increase sales volume. You actually have to look on the Hitachi website to discover how long the warranty is. For me it was an absolute bonus, as I'd have been happy with the standard two or three years you get with other brands, considering the quality of the tool.Replacement batteries about £45 I think, so far more cost effective to keep replacing them than buying new drills.Either way, it's genuinely a superb tool, and everyone who's used mine at work has been impressed by the power, weight and battery life. If you're needing a good combi drill / screwdriver suitable for prolonged heavy use, at this price you really can't go wrong IMO.

Would this be metter than my 18V Makita... ?
My Makita is good don't get me wrong, but it's Ni-Cd and not especially lightweight...

Doh! Just noticed the driver isn't an impact driver... That's a pity.
Would have thought it would have made more sense to package a drill/driver and an impact driver.... ah well.

This is a good deal. I just bout the Makita LXT combi and impact driver kit but i pay more than twice what this hitachi is going at. O and i know another company in the signage trade that use only these Hitachi Li tools, they absolutely love them for their reliability.
#11
I've got this drill driver and bought it on the B&Q deal some months ago - as said, it's a great bit of kit after the many dewalts and makita's I've been through.

Li-ion is the only way to go these days, and even if they only last a few hundreds cycles, the weight saving when using above shoulder height really does make the difference.

Voted hot for the quality and lightness. didn't know about the 10yr guarantee, but not surprised by their confidence in the product.

Well, technically it is a cordless driver/drill and a cordless impact driver drill, so should satisfy your needs.

It would feel incredibly light compared to your NiCd Makita and personally I'd have the Hitachi Li ion every time.

Thanks shakeyjake66.
Just googled the product numbers and you're absolutely right, one of them IS an impact driver - the description on the Screwfix page is woefully bad. It didn't look like the usual stubby impact drivers I've used, so didn't recognise it. Very, very tempted now to take advantage especially as Screwfix have just mailed me a £10 off voucher.

Just checked the actual products and the first one isn't a combi drill, does that mean no hammer action and no drilling into masonary?

"drilling capacity in masonry 13mm" - that's for one of them. The other isn't hammer action.

Okay i think they are confusing referring to that drill as an "impact drill driver". Not sure what that is supposed to be as it certainly doesn't look like a normal impact driver but it definitely drills into brick so I bought the set.

Great value!
#17
Thought I'd just add my tuppence worth after searching for reviews...

Just bough the Hitachi 18v li-ion combi drill DV18DCl2/JC (two batteries) for £99.98 from B&Q.

Here's the link, but you can easily find it via their website. CLICK HERE FOR B&Q HITACHI

Hope it helps!!
