    A good product in general, but the received reconditioned drill has a chuck wobble with small drill bits. Will be returning it - it's easy to see how this was missed in reconditioning - be sure to check on receipt.

    Best drill I've ever owned...good high speed for drilling and plenty of power for 3 1/2 inch screws. Lithium batteries last a good long time. Have to get used to the drill not fading in power, just shutting down when battery reaches a specified voltage. Work light comes in handy when working in cabinets or other dark areas.

    when i first used this drill, it was great. Tons of power, light weight and manageable size. 1 month into use, it fell off the work bench (3ft) and a little piece of plastic broke off where the battery clips in. now the battery wont stay locked into the drill. 1 month later i was drilling a 3/4 inch hole with a paddle bit. the bit caught a nail and snap...the case broke in half right where the trigger is. now its a boat anchor. might be a good drill for driving screws close to the ground, but if your looking for a tough drill, look else where

    Strong running product. I own 2 now and the first one was dropped shortly after it's purchase and busted the clips on the battery retainer clips. This was very disappointing, but to be expected I suppose from plastic parts. I'd hoped the company would repalce the housing, but did not.

    Great price. Initial impression was that it has good power. It bogged down and the chuck came out while drilling in a 4"x4". I was only applying moderate pressure, so not sure if that was a safety mechanism. Chuck went back in fine. Motor sounds a little more "loose" after that. Batteries seem to have a good life.

    great screw gun lots of torque. If the light ran off the 18 volt battery instead of it's own battery I would of gave it 5 stars...

    This model has been the most dependable drill since the first one I purchased in 2007. I use it everyday in a demanding environment. The only weakness is the shell is prone to breakage, but is inexpensive and easy to replace. Tried every other brand, like this one the best.

    The drill works well and I was going to order another one, but I was disapointed to see that the price has increased. I guess I should be happy with the first one.

    What a drill/driver! I now have the sense of feeling like a professional craftsman after using this tool. The only thing that could be better about this drill is, if it were made in America.

    This was to replace my cordless hammer drill and I am glad I got the wrong model number. It is a much lighter tool and even though my hammer drill fell 3 stories from some scaffolding, I was able to recondition it yet again with just a little epoxy,metal splints duct tape and some electrical tape. It probably qualifies as a "D class".

    I have always ran a Hitachi drill in the contracting field professionally. When my older model took a 10 ft. fall it snapped in half. I have since been using the newer model and have nothing but great things to say about this drill. It's power is amazing, and the battery life seems never ending. A great feature about this drill is the built-in hanger. It comes in handy more than I realized. I will continue to run Hitachi drills on all my job sites.

    Product seems like the batteries are not equal to a new one. Also on high speed it is slower than my DEWALTS. I think the charge time is to long. Would still buy DEWALTS 18-volt drill, more power and better battery life and lots more torque. They seem to run faster on high when drilling kreg jig holes.

    Reconditioned and appeared to be like new. Drill is everything I imagined and more. Very versatile and powerful, battery life is impressive. For the cost of some battery packs, you could own one of these and throw your old drill away as I did. Will definitely use recon sales again

    Very happy with the amount of torque this drill has. The batteries have held a long and sustained charge for my drilling and driving use. I'm glad I invested in this drill and hope for years of dependability.

    For me these recons are an excellent value. I can't see paying 20-25% more for new when the item is as good as this one is. As expected this drill model is balzy..I've pops holes in masonry, bored through 6"x6"s and used it to crank down some serious lags. No sweat! Although I must add that you need to expect some extra weight with this kind of serious power. So if you're looking to drive small screws into finish woodwork you should be looking at one of the lighter weight (recon.)models. Hitachi recons have been good to me!

    The Machine shop crew has endorsed this product. They do a considerable amount of drilling and tapping and wear out lighter duty drills pretty quickly. It has the torque they require, weighs less and is smaller than competitive units, 4 speed ranges are a handy feature. It has been a couple of months now and if proves as durable as we hope the DS18DL 18 will likely become the mainstay and more units will be added as other brands wear out.

    It's great now. I had to return the first unit because of a problem with concentricity, but the replacement is fine and it is an excellent product. Reconditioned Sales was very good to work with on the replacement and left me well satisified. I would purchase from this company again.

    Somewhat heavy, but nice balance and grip. Lots of power - use with care on smaller screws, or set torque level down. Chuck is the best feature: a smal twist and the bit is locked in tight. I happliy recommend this to any serious worker.
