    Poor quality.Your better waiting for a milwakiee deal, they do get posted


    Hitachi pro power tools are NOT poor quality.

    I have a selection of their kit going back to the early days of lithium batteries - 10 years old maybe more - and the drills are still going strong. Only the batteries have lost some of their capacity.

    2x 18v combo drill and 1x 18v sds.

    I also have drill, impact driver and sabre saw from their 10.8v range and you can't fault them either.

    The only thing that has made me move away from them is the cheap availability of Bosch Pro 18v kit when compared to the expense of new batteries for the Hitachis

    Quite possibly true, years back tools were built to last.

    I have used Hitachi and they are ok for general jobs, but they lasted less than a year with heavy trade work.
    Bosch Pro were better all round, and worth having.
    Milwakiee 18v are in a different class as many in the trade will agree.
    It just depends what you are using it for, home or trade.

    But you didn't say that in your original post. You just said poor quality, meaning all Hitachi products.
    Got these for £120 in Costco with a case a 2x batteries, they’re awesome.

    Yep, they are fantastic bits of kit.
    Agreed great stuff but still annoyed with them changing the battery shape a few years ago and being forced to junk the old ones
    Great price.Had my drills, impact wrench and driver for a couple of years now. Fantastic power tools, done every job I've thrown at them with ease. The two 3.0Ah batteries alone would cost you £80. There's a three year warranty too, if you register your purchase on the Hitachi website.

    FFX do the same set with 5ah batteries for £30 extra, a lot better deal than this one
