Hitachi Power Tools today announced the launch of its new 18V Brushless
Motor Lithium Ion cordless products at Lowe's. As of early May, Lowe's
will offer an 18V Lithium Ion Brushless Hammer Drill - model DV18DBL
& an 18V Lithium Ion Brushless Impact Driver - model WH18DBDL.
Hitachi’s brushless motor technology delivers more power to the motor by
minimizing unnecessary energy loss through friction and heat. Managed by
a micro-processor chip that efficiently delivers current flow to the
motor, brushless tools experience up to 50% longer run time between
charges, increased power, and extended durability with essentially no
maintenance. Covered by Hitachi’s Lifetime Lithium Ion tool warranty and
2-year Lithium Ion battery warranty, the brushless tools stand alone
against other professional cordless product on the market today.

These tools are powered by high capacity 3.0Ah Lithium Ion slide type
batteries for fade free power, less weight and 3x the total battery life
of traditional Ni-Cd batteries. They feature optical trigger switches
that communicate with the micro-processor and deliver smoother motor
acceleration. Digital Control Panels located at the base of Hitachi
brushless tools offer an LED light, battery power indicator and
micro-processor controlled speed/power settings for ultimate control.
The DV18DBL Brushless Hammer Drill delivers professional grade
power with an impressive 654 in-lbs of turning torque. Its ½” ratcheting
keyless chuck is all metal for maximum durability and includes carbide
inserts for secure bit retention when hammering into concrete. The
22-stage clutch delivers 22 torque settings, a hammer setting and a
drill setting. Compact at 8.1” in length and lightweight at just 4.8
lbs, the DV18DBL comes with two 3.0Ah Lithium Ion Slide Type batteries,
a quick charger, side handle, carrying case and double sided Phillips
The WH18DBDL Brushless Impact Driver is compact at just 6” in
length and lightweight at 3.7 lbs. With impressive turning torque -
1,420 in/lbs - the WH18DBDL tackles heavy applications like tightening
and loosening carriage bolts, driving lags and sinking deck screws.
Additionally it can drill into wood, metal and concrete. The WH18DBDL
features a limited impact mode in addition to the traditional continuous
impact mode whereby the tool impacts until the trigger is released. The
limited mode electronically stops the driver after about 4 impacts,
which is especially useful when driving small or delicate fasteners to
minimize excessive torque. A ¼” hex chuck saves time as bits can be
changed quickly and easily. It comes with two 3.0Ah Lithium Ion Slide
Type batteries, a quick charger and carrying case.
Available on lowes.com is Hitachi’s KC18DJL Brushless two-tool combo
kit that combines both the brushless hammer drill- DV18DBL and
brushless impact driver- WH18DBDL, along with a quick charger, two
Lithium Ion Slide Type Batteries, side handle, double sided Phillips
Driver Bit and carrying case.
