  1. Horrible battery life
    I purchased to, basically get batteries for another one, that I purchased to get batteries for yet another one. Blue sky would not return emails to their customer service about buying batteries, so forget their customer service. I am not a contractor. Episodic use red lied in batteries that last at best a year. I doubt I have 50 charges before they expire. Anyone want to buy old drills? Old chargers? I like hitachi air tools, but their batteries are worthless.

    The drill was in pristine condition and works like a champ. I had a fairly trusty corded drill that I thought was powerful, but nothing compared to this! Big Sky delivered fast, and what a great price.

    Great drill motor, my third of the same model. I dropped one in the lake, recovered it and let it dry out, still working today. Lithium-ion baterries are great, light weight, fast charge, long life, head and shoulders better than NICAD. Excellent service, I have recommeded to several friends. I have multiples so that I am never without a drill motor.

    Own a few hitachi products range from leaf blower, weed eater, to tools (cir. saw, drill), overall very please with the products. The same experience with this drill, it looks like new and works like one, so far. The Lithium Iron battery performs exactly as described (fast charge, last long and steady power through out).

    Great product for the price. Unit works as advertised and I really don't care if the unit looks a but dinged up. It works great. The bulb in the light accessory didn't last more than 2 minutes however. Cost me $9.00 for two replacements.

    the item I purchased arived in a very timly manner and was in excellent condition. However, one of the two batteries were faulty and would not charge. I called CS and they, without question or hassel, sent a new replacement the same day. To me that diserves 4 stars. I would say 5, but the bum battery right out of the box was a disapointment. Thanks for asken. Jim

    I was very pleased with first drill. The product looked and worked as if new. I was so pleased that I ordered a second one a few weeks later. The second looked and worked the same with exception of one battery will not charge. I would have contacted you earlier, but have only recently used the second battery. I would like to return the battery but I am not sure of your return policy. Please let me know. Steve Ballard

    The drill driver I ordered was shipped very fast, and when I open the box I could not find one cosmetic blemish on the drill. The batteries were fully charged and I started using it right away.

    Okay at best. One of my two batteries died with in about 6 months of receiving it. A replacement is around 90 dollars- so I am functioning with one battery. (two is preferable.) I thought it dying was a little fishy. Other then that its a fine drill.

    At the time I bought it, I was shocked at the US-Canada taxes and brokerage fees. The drill unit itself has been an excellent tool for me. I have since bought other Hitachi tools because I liked it so much. I wish the batteries were a bit higher capacity, but they came as advertised.

    I LOVE the drill and the lithium ion batteries. Charges fast and is light weight. The only problem I had was: one week after the 1 year warranty expired one of the batteries would no longer accept a charge. I was told "Sorry" when I contacted Reconditioned sales. They would not do anything to help.

    I have nothing but good things to say about the reconditioned Hitachi 18v Li Drill I bought almost two years ago. I have used it on deck projects as well as smaller home projects and have yet to run into a problem. The drill holds a consistent charge until the battery is dead. No discernible drop off in power near the end of the charge. I would definitely purchase another one.

    drill works fine but batteries die all at once. May be just the nature of this new type of battery? batteries recharge very fast so not much of an issue. Hopefully the drill will last me a few years. If so i will be completely satisfied with my purchase.

    I picked this drill up to use while my other Hitachi had some warranty work done. The DS18DFL doesnt' have as much torque, but it was also half the price. This is a great second drill to keep in the bag and have ready for multi-drill action. I could hardly tell it was reconditioned when it first arrived.

    Drill works as advertised for 2yrs now. Used for med/heavy work; constructing decks to metal roofing installation. Condition was llike new, great torque and batt. endurance. Assembled 40 bar room chairs: 16 #8 x 1" screws per chair, driven into hardwood with one battery used. Can't remember price paid but was about 40% of best home improvement store price.

    This is another fantastic tool from Hitachi! Great feel, good rubber grips, ergonomic layout. Every button is exactly where is supposed to be. Rugged and the battery lasts forever! Runs hard until the last bit of electricity is used. I really like the quick draw belt clip. The only IF i have is a really small IF. The impact driver has a light incorporated into the belt clip, IF it had that it would be another perfect tool. A permanent Hitachi / Reconditioned customer. My Advice ! BUY IT! There is no better price! Definitely no better tool for the job.

    Works like a new one. I use it for volunteer work and it has worked flawlessly. The lithium batteries charge in about 15 min. making it a real work horse. When everyone else has run out of battery it keeps on going. I have driven thirty three inch screws into treated lumber with one charge. Well satisfied.

    The price was half as much as I was seeing for comparable products at the time and when one of the 2 batteries failed to take a charge, the customer service was first rate. The drill has been my steady workforce for almost 2 years now and is a fully transparent tool - meaning, it just works and is a faithful extension of my hand. If I ever have to replace it, the only thing I would change would be to have it be a bit lighter and more compact.

    The Hitachi DS18DFL 18V 1.5Ah Lithium Ion Driver Drill works great when it works. The batteries and charger that came with my unit never give or get a proper charge. I have had it serviced under warranty locally but they just gave me the unit back as is. They did however replace the chuck with an aftermarket one for some reason telling me my original one was faulty and since I hadn't hardly used the drill I couldn't argue with them, I have howver found the new chuck not to my liking.

    The product was in a pretty bad shape when I got it, one of the battery was barely holding charge, and the other was dead on arrival, it was so old, can not be recharge. I was highly disappointed with the product, it was just a worn out drill, should not have sold it to anyone. I have not bought anything from this site since then.

    The drill works great, but the batteries that came with both died, one under warranty,and one out of warranty, so that is disappointing. If not for the battery issues, I would give it a higher rating.

    The drill itself still works great and I have one good battery. One of the batteries went bad after just a few months which until I decide to purchase another battery renders the drill pretty much useless for any big projects.

    On the basis of almost a year's experience with this drill, I can confidently say it was a great buy, with one exception. It has plenty of power and flexibility -- easy speed, torque, and direction change -- long lasting battery charge and quick recharge. The exception is that the chuck has a tendency to slip; it has to be tightened extremely hard to minimize that tendency. Also, the case is not well designed to hold the drill, extra battery, and bit set --maybe it isn't even the right case. But the drill basically does very well what it's supposed to do so it's a great buy for the price.

    It is a great drill/driver for the money! It has never let me down. Charges fast and mine came with two lithium batteries so you never run out juice. Heck, it even looks good!

  138. Big Sky Tool Reviews
    This has been a very useful tool for me. It is far superior to any others that I have had. The only draw back is that it is difficult to get the chuck to hold tightly to small drill bits. The hand tightening chuck is a real convenience but an optional chuck key way to tighten would probably solve the problem mentioned above.

    The drill is a good one. Still going, although not used it heavily. However one battery died quickly (within 6 months). A battery costs as much as the drill did. So although the drill is pretty good (not as good as panasonic or miulwaukee), their batteries do not last long.

    This drill replaced a 12 year old high end Makita NiCd Drill for me. I have had it for about a year and still love this new drill. The lithium battery is much superior to NiCd because of the excellent discharge rate. I use to have to start our every weekend project by charging my battery. This one holds a charge for months. Only problem is that the keyless chuck is impossible to get tight enough to hold a round drill bit. Overall, it is an excellent drill and value.

    Worst drill I have ever owned. Chuck wobbles too much. Tried to get warranty repair at authorized repair center. Took 4 months. Couldn't get parts. Replaced many parts.

    Very lightweight batteries compared to the old NiCad ones I'm used too. The drill iteself is as good as the $300 big name models. I don't know much that you could improve on the drill itself. I really like this drill for around the house repairs etc. I was a bit skeptical about buying reconditioned but after a year of using it, it turned out be as good as buying a new drill except it cost a lot less buying reconditioned. I've recommended this site and drill to my dad who also purchased a couple of these drills for our business.

    Battery charger doesn't work as it should nor did I receive a user direction as to how to use this charger. Batteries do not hold a very long charge even when just doing the simplest of tasks. My old 9V Makita holds a longer and better charge than this reconditioned Hitachi DS18DFL. I have wanted to but a small impact driver, but I think I will wait for a new one to come on sale. The gentleman I spoke with during the initial sale of Hitachi DS18DFL was hands down the most personable person I have had the pleasure of doing business with in quite some time.

    When it works, it works well. It has some kind of battery circuit breaker that stops the tool from working when it draws too much power. It is then useless for some minutes, which can be quite frustrating. The charger does not indicate when battery is full, still blinking after 12 hours.

    Pros: Long battery life, quick recharge, and a lot of torque. Cons: Bits keep falling out (needs a locking device), and the clutch started slipping after the warranty expired. In general, it is a good drill for the money. If you use it on a daily basis, you might want to spend more ant buy the Makita. It comes with a bit lock and a built in LED for dark areas.

    I resisted cordless drills for years. On a whim in 2006 I bought a brand "X" NiCad drill. I was impressed for the first year, then the NiCads started to go. By now I was sold on the cordless idea, but learned to hate NiCads. Along came the reconditioned DS18DFL Lithium Ion Hitachi. I am in love. Would I do it again? You bet. One of the best buys I have made in 20 years. Now all I want is Lithium Ion tools. When is Hitachi going to introduce a Lithium Ion set of grass shears?

    By

    Posted on

  226. Big Sky Tool Reviews
    It arrived with faulty batteries, but you replaced them upon my request. Buy even the new Lithium Ion batteries are still the weakest link with this drill motor because of their short duty cycle. I'm planning to replace them with NiMh or NiCad. The chuck is also not well suited to smaller bits, which tend to slip. The drill motor has good balance, fits the hand well and has plenty of torque. This was my first Hitachi. My previous DC drill motor experience is with Makita, Milwaukee, Bosch and Craftsman. I'll try DeWalt next.

    Total loss of time and money, the batteries shipped with the unit lasted only 5 minutes each and would not recharge an more than that. I sent the unit back right away under the warranty and what was returned was no better, batteries still went dead in 5 to 10 minutes and would not recharge any better than that. If you would like to have it back for any refund of any amount I would take you up on that deal...total loss for me...Jerry James, 514 Pioneer Lane, Anderson, SC 29625 Phone: 864-617-2759

    Very poor quality the chuck will not hold a bit, one battery lasted only 2 months. This drill was used very little only around the house. It was not abused. The power the drill has is very good. Feels good in your hand.

    AS FOR THE Drill. it works perfectly. My only down fall is it did not contain any bits with the drill. Could not recommend anything better.

    Basically a good drill. The only week area is the chuck, which has a tendency to allow the drill bit to slip. This happens often enough to be annoying, even on small bits.

    excellent product with exception of drill chuck design. chuck does not retain drill bits securely.

    great drill, light weight with the 1.5 batteries. One went bad, wouldn't take a full charge but ReconSales was great in sending out a free replacement and not making me deal with Hitachi. I am a happy camper...

    This has replaced a Milwaukee 14.4v and I love it. It's just as powerful but lighter, more compact, the batteries last longer, there's handy spots for bits. The 1 minor drawback is that a low battery will just cut off, there's no finishing a screw or hole slowly.

    It's a good price for a drill that's just like new, batteries just like new. Really fast shipping, came right to my door and I'm a happy guy.
