FTC Disclosure

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

Hitachi DS10DFL2 12V Peak Li-Ion Cordless Driver Drill with 2 Batteries and Quick Charger

This drill is very user friendly.  It is substantially smaller and lighter than my current cordless drill.  It came with two lithium batteries and a charger with a nice carrying case for less than $100.00.  That is a pretty good value.  The lightness of the drill enables you to use the handy hook that accompanies it to hang it on your belt without danger of the infamous plumber's butt. (no offense to any of you plumbers, it is merely part of the tool belt culture's humor.)  

A nice set of assorted screw driver bits accompanies the drill.   There may be a difference in performance between the 12 volts of this unit and the 18 volts of my older drill particularly when comparing lithium to lithium.  The old ni-cad 18 volt battery was easily twice the weight of the new 18 volt lithium.   With that said, the 12 volt Hitachi is still much lighter and easier on the wrist and shoulder, particularly on overhead work,  than the older 18 volt unit.   More power is frequently needed but for general purposes, this Hitachi should meet the needs of most people.   Contractors will probably find uses for both and if you have deep pockets by all means, invest in both 12 volt and 18 volt units. 

From the Vendor:

Powerful 300 in-lbs of torque to handle tough jobs in tight spaces
Two-speed gear setting to match the appropriate speed to the application
21+1 stage clutch delivers 21 torque settings and a drill mode for ultimate precision and control

If reviewing a product, it may have been received free of charge. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
