  1. Excellent value!
    I have been consistently impressed with the product value offered by Bigskytool.com specifically regarding the Hitachi(Reconditioned) tools. I have purchased several and am truly impressed with the quality and features per dollar. This drill/driver was no exception. It looked and operated like new. Just a matter of what to treat myself to next. : )

  2. Great Product
    I bought this set for my son. Last year I bought the same set for my daughter.
    3 years ago I bought this and an impact driver for myself. All the Hitachi reconditioned tools have been great. The batteries last long and work well , but do eventually need replaced. The flash light is very bright, but the bulb is a little fragile and expensive. I only wish Big sky could offer a better deal on replacement or upgrade batteries.

    I own 2 sets and just bought my dad a set for Christmas. Drill is great, love the power and long lasting lithium batteries. Quick charge times. Grade C looked almost new with every order.

  4. E xcellent drill in like new condition. Lightweight but powerful, highly recommended!
    Excellent drill, lightweight but powerful. Reconditioned but like new. Top rated by Consumer reports and I can see why. Comes with a new set of power screwdriver bits, battery charger, flashlight and spare battery. Highly recommend this!

  5. I'll probably buy another one before the year is out for one of my other sons.
    These are great drills for the money. They are built tough and strong for an 18 volt. This is the third one I've purchased over the last three years. I gave one to my son as a gift. The charge time is a little longer than what I prefer but really hasn't been an issue.

  6. It's compact does any job! I love the lite feature. You can't go wrong with HITACHI
    I have purchased 3 of these Hitachi Ds18DSL 18V 1.5AH LITHIUM ION DRILL/DRIVER SETS from BIGSKY. My last one got stolen out of my truck on a job site along with my HITACHI 18V angle Drill. It fits perfect where the flash lite goes. I LOVE Hitachi !

  7. Love the DS18DSAL
    I have bought 3 of these over the past 3 years. They perform above and beyond on what I expected. I have owned other 18 volt drills that start with the letter D and M, these drills out performs both of them. Thank you BigSky.

    love it, everything is great and your customer service is next to none. the rubber cap on my light was torn and upon emailing your customer service team, they got a new light out to me immediately even though i asked just for the rubber piece that i would fix myself. i recommend your company to everyone i know that might need tools.

    This is my second purchase of the Hitachi DS18DSAL 18V... my first was couple-three years ago with an impact drill that came with full kit. Anyway old drill is a workhorse and never had problems with it and still going strong. This recent purchase the drill looked new and the batteries had a few scratches on it... all work great. One thing I noticed about the 2-3 year old Hitachi batteries they don't keep a full charge any longer, but I think that's the technology of the lithium-ion batteries. The batteries have a short life span of a few years... whether you use the batteries or not.

    Everything I have purchased from Big Sky Tool has exceeded my expectations. This drill is no exception. It appears and operates like a brand new one but for a lot less money. You can't beat their price for the reconditioned "A" Grade tools and the shipping is very fast. I just ordered a Hitachi gas trimmer on Thursday and it was delivered Saturday. Everything is well packaged and the gal in customer service is amazingly helpful.

    got a nail gun combo with this used it all day with no recharge nothing heavy duty we have used the 3 amp version for years at work there awesome with the slide lock now. get a refurb. in my experience the new ones break just as often. batteries are good for 2-3 years with outdoor use. and will loose charge holding time in winter conditions.

    Compact drill but pretty powerful, especially for its size. Good case, two batteries, recharger--it was a very good deal for what seems to be a good product (I haven't used it much but it was highly rated by Consumer Reports).

    I purchased the class A reconditioned Hitachi DS18DSAL which is the first time I have ever purchased reconditioned tools. The package I received appeared to be almost brand new and everything worked. I have only used them for a couple of light jobs so the verdict is out on their durability. I am completely satisfied with the entire experience, including the low cost, and would recommend Big Sky Tool to anyone who wants to purchase power tools. I am now a big fan of reconditioned tools.

    I have multiple tools and I have to say this tool is the best, ( equally good is the 18v lithium impact driver). These tools are of excellent value. Like new condition, the work amaingly well, are balanced and powerful. Plus you can't beat the price. I use my tools at least 2-3x per week and they have never let me down.

    Great product and awesome value. Dollar for dollar there's no better choice in the 18v Li-Ion drill market. I abuse my tools and my first one lasted several years of very hard abuse. Dropping from ladders, overheating, aggressive self-feed drill bits, mud, dust, etc. Ironically, the clutch on my first one died just about the same time the batteries reached their end of life. Conveniently timed so I just bought a new kit.

    I own this product and the sister impact driver. They both look and operate like brand new. I'm not using them in a professional manor,right now, but I keep breaking the grooved heads off the Philips head. The power and battery life is just what you would expect from the specs. My project right now is a deck refurb!

    This is a great drill. I have one for my business and one for home use. Its relatively light weight, powerful, and fast. Plus, I never knew how helpful it was to have an LED light on the front of a drill until I bought this one. The carry case is very large, so there is plenty of room to hold all the parts and different drivers. The flashlight is a nice add-on, however I can't say I've had much need for it.

    This 18V lithium battery drill is far superior to old 14.4 that it is replacing - MUCH more power and longer lasting charge. Impossible to tell that the item was reconditioned. Item was a steal at the price I paid.

    I haven't used it much so far. It seems awfully weak for a 1/2 inch drill but it's my 1st LI powered product so I'll reserve judgement for now. If not better, it'll be going back. I like the feel and contrary to some reviews, the belt hanger is useful.

    Such an awesome deal for the quality of tool. Both the flashlight and the drill worked right out of the box. I have used them everyday for a month now, no problems whatsoever. I upgraded from the NiHm 18V, totally worth it. Much lighter, more power, and the charge lasts forever. Also, charges in less than 20 min. I bought my previous drill and flashlight more than two years ago, no issues at all. Looking forward to more years with this new set. Big Sky Tools rocks!

    I was a little nervous about this drill being marked in such a way that it was easily recognizable as reconditioned, especially because it was a gift. But that was not the case. It was hard to tell from a new one. If I were shopping for a drill for myself, this is where I'd go

    The 18 volt lithium ion drill has some awesome torque! I have purchased many tools from your company in the past, and as always I am extremely pleased with my purchase! Tools at a great price and always shipped quickly! I've used the drill for several projects and it has performed perfectly! Thanks again.

    I have used the drill a couple of times now and it is working fine. I would recommend this to anyone looking to buy or replace. This was an economical buy as a replacement battery for my Black and Decker 18V drill would have cost me $65. Thanks again!

    my husband has used this drill several times now and he LOVES it! It has lots of power, the very first project he did with it was drilling a 3/4" hole through a solid walnut floor 2" thick in our 1890's farmhouse. This is a great and powerful drill

    Excellent power and battery longevity. No issues at all with refurb vs. new; you will not notice a difference. Four stars instead of five due to: 1) doesn't have a magnet to hold screws. 2) it is difficult to get the power low enough for delicate jobs. However, getting these things in a drill would cost a lot more.

    Yo- Drill operates GREAT and lives up to its Consumer Reports #1 rating over all comperable cordless drills. One star knocked off for crap left floating around the case and red Sharpie markings by the vendor on the outside of the case. which forced me to keep the drill for myself rather than give it as a Christmas gift *(darn!! ;) )

    I was getting tired of buying poor quality 19.2 Sears ni-cd batteries and didnt want to spend the ridiculous amount of money they wanted for just 1 Lion battery and charger so I came back to Big Sky and found this excellent drill with 2 batteries, light, and case for about the same amount of money. The drill arrived quickly and looked new.

    By

    Posted on

  168. Big Sky Tool Reviews
    The drill has excellent torque. The highest setting for screwdriver is not high enough in my opinion. (We ordered 2 and both are similar, so I think it is more product related than BigSky releated.)

  169. Big Sky Tool Reviews
    It is an excellent drill and was very well priced. I first thought that I would never use the flashlight that comes with the drill but have found it very useful around the shop and a good way to use the second battery. Having lithium ion batteries is such a big improvement over the nicads especially for the DIY homeowner where the tool can sit for long times between use.

    Reconditioned tool looks hardly used. Tool is very clean and easy to use. Powerful unit able to drill and screw long screws without difficulty. I am very pleased with the unit and plan to add other 18 volt li-ion tools to my tool box. The fit and finish on this tool is outstanding and the rubberized cover on key portions of the tool make it easy to clean and difficult to scratch.

    Hitachi DS18DSAL 18V. replaced my 6 year old Hitachi DS12DVF3 which had lost battery capacity. So far it is working great . The weight is comparable to my old 12v nicad Hitach with much more power.Has power of my 18v Porter Cable but smaller and easier to handle. I like Porter Cable's carrying bag better than Hitachi's cheap molded plastic case.

    My old Hitachi 9.6V drill-driver gave up the ghost after 14 years of hard use. Replacing it with a DS18DSAL model has simply been a delight. Not only is there more power and clever features such as an LED lamp to light up the work area, but the lithium-ion batteries charge up fast and hold a charge much longer. I love the belt clip too. One small con is that there is no provision to hold bits on the driver itself (the old one held two), however this is a small sacrifice for all the great features of this awesome tool.

  227. Big Sky Tool Reviews

    Excellent value on this product. Cosmetically it was in Excellent condition and I have used it for about 1.5 hours of total use. Power and Torque are excellent and the batteries are giving me much better life than my 12v's battery.

    Awesome. Tons of power! The LED light on the drill was a nice surprise. A magnet strip to hold a few extra screws or drill bits would've been perfect. Bigskytools is awesome. Great price and prompt shipping. The drill is in great shape but did come with a few significant scratches.

    The Hitachi drill I purchased arrived in like new condition and it works great. The first day I got it I used it to install a new deck, screwing 6 pounds of screws. It worked great and strong all day and the batteries seem to work fine; I had to recharge them several times during that day, but I was using it almost nonstop for 8 hours.

    Everything arrived in great condition. Why buy new? This thing has some power! The only thing that differentiates this from a new drill is probably the "R2" etched into the bottom of the drill. This is likely to show that it has indeed been refurbished.

    Drill is great, it came a little beat up but definitely nothing major. The flashlight which I assumed I would never use (I always assumed they were just a gimmick to pad the number of items in a "set") actually has been extremely useful. The case is quite large but looks well made. Just one perhaps unnecessary word of caution - I am used to older, less powerful cordless drills and tightening the chuck by grasping it with one hand and powering the drill a little (I know, I know) this was a bit more powerful than those making this not a good idea ;)

    Excellent tool at unbeatable price. The drill itself has a few marks of usage when I received it but no issue with the mechanical. It comes with two batteries which is a plus. The battery can last about 1.5 - 2hr on the flash light. The flash light is very bright and I actually love it. Bigskytool has a great customer service and I will never hesitate to purchase from them again.

    I bought 4 of these drills for a project. Overall they are satisfactory but the charger for one of them quit working after 2 days. I've only used them for a week so I'll have to see how they hold up on the long haul. I'll update this after I have a chance to see how good the warranty service is.

    This drill is great, good size and weight and works well. My only problem with this purchase was the fact that one of the batteries was DOA and they wouldn't exchange it for me, but instead told me to seek out an authorized repair center and convince them to replace the dead battery. Receiving a battery that only holds a partial charge I could have understood, but receiving a completely dead battery implies that Reconditioned Sales Inc. isn't even checking them before shipping them out with their refurbished tools. So despite the fact that I love the drill, I would probably not buy from this seller again in the future.

    This is the third reconditioned DS18DSAL I have purchased. I was so impressed with the first purchase that another was made as a gift. They appear and function as new. Now I bought another as a backup. I have owned Milwaukee, PorterCable, and Makita, and this Hitachi feels the most balanced and powerful. Even the flashlights are getting use (normally they go into a drawer). And lithium batteries are the only way to go.

    Great little drill. Battery doesn't last quite as long as I would have hoped compared to my years old nicad 12v drill but the power is there. Also, the thing just stops when the battery dies. I was using a 3" hole saw so I though I had overheated the drill. After cooling down it still wouldn't go so I tried the backup battery and it was ready to go again.

    I am a die hard Hitachi fan, but that aside, this is a great drill for the price. The drill is very light yet has plenty of power. The belt hook on the side of the drill is just the right size to hang it at your side for when you need it. I would buy it again in a heart beat.

    The drill has great power. The chuck is not well designed, and will burn your hand while spinning bits in or out. I think newer Hitachi's correct this issue with a knobbed vs ridged grip. I had one odd issue where a fully charged battery suddenly quit completely. But it seems to recover on charge.

    Works great. One battery pack is weaker than the other.I say this because it dosn't hold charge as long. But I really like the unit as a whole. I have used it several times. I would buy again.

    I see below that this is not for customer service complaints, so I apologize. Have had the worst luck with the customer service folks at Big Sky, so I feel this is the only avenue that's available for venting. The product is fine, but the customer service at Big Sky is the worst I have come across! I bought my husband this drill for Christmas, but his parents bought him the same drill. Not needing two identical drills, we tried calling (and left several messages) regarding a return of one of the drills for store credit, so that my husband could put the refund toward another item on the website. However, we were told by one of the customer service associates (who would not put her manager on the phone because he was in the warehouse...) that since the tool was not defective, we could not return it. We left messages for the manager, but did not receive a call back. VERY frustating situation. My husband and his family have ordered several tools fom Big Sky and have been very happy with them. This situation has steered us from purchasing from Big Sky in the future. Also will no longer recommend this website to others (in fact, will strongly recommend against this site). Products are fantastic but the customer service is just terrible.

    I haven't had the need to use the drill. I have only tested it to make sure it works. It drives 3" screws without a pilot hole into and out of old pressure treated lumber with ease! I am impressed with the light. It is very bright and much better than any of my big flashlights! The packing was poor! The tool case allowed the loose battery to fly around. There should have been some bubble wrap in there. The tool case was loose inside a larger cardboard box; again without padding! I guess that says something about how tough the drill and light are.

    I needed a substantial xmass gift, for my brother-in-law. A few years back, I ordered a 1/4" X 1 1/2" stapler, on sale for around $30, that was a Grade C re-con. When I received it, there was nary a scratch on it. It literally looked brand new. Later on, I bought a re-con Freud standard based router, for my router table, for $107. Dosent even need a routerlift. So, on Dec.1, I saw this recon. unit, on sale, for $80-something, The new price is $160. It was a perfect gift. It's Hitachi's top of the line-commercial/duty 18 volt drill. He just uses it, on weekends, on his days off. His 30 year old 9.6 volt, light-duty Makita drill was just about toast. I not only bought one for him, I bought a second unit, for myself. When they came, nary a scratch on not only the drills, but nary a scratch on the cases. I did a compleat Test, on everything I could think of. Both performed as if brand-new and never taken out of the cases, since leaving the factory. I'm not going to sit here and say its the best thing since sliced bread, but for the money, the quality and expectations that this is the last drill I will ever buy. I already have a 12 volt, Bosch impact-driver. So I figure I have all areas covered. Do I recommend you buy this unit, At the sale price, it can't be beat. I have no idea what the regular price is, but I would think it is substantially more. Happy New Year woodchuck1954 "A legend in His Own Mind"

    I ordered this reconditioned tool comb based on the positive experience I've had with the reconditioned Hitachi 18V impact driver I bought last year. These tools are extremely comforable to work with. Well balanced and powerful. They do exactly what you expect from an 18V unit. Also, the drill/flashlight combo, though reconditioned, arrived pristine.

  343. Big Sky Tool Reviews
    For a certified reconditioned product I was expecting it to be more cleaner than a Grade C product that's advertized. Taking it out of the box the chuck was stuck and it wasn't closing all the way for attaching small bits. Not sure if they actually checked that as part of the certification. However, after multiple tries and movement of the chuck I was able to get it to fully close and open. I'm hoping it was a fluke and it will continue to operate normally. I've only used both the drill and light around the house a couple of times and so far it worked fine after the chuck issue.

    So far it has been a very good tool. LIght weight and still powerful. Have yet to put it to a real test where I work it so I need to change and recharge batteries. I have heard that sometimes with a reconditioned tool the batteries don't hold up. So far it is a great tool.

    This product arrived in a brand-new hard-case. It came supplied with two batteries, one of which was new. The actual drill is in almost as new condition. Great little drill/ driver for light tasks, or, as in my case, as a backup/ driver for the more powerful brushless version. Torque settings are a little low, the tool has masses of torque, but only low settings, and so for big screws you may have to use the drill setting. Overall though, you won't find me complaining. Great service, thanks guys.

    The drill arrived very quickly and in great shape. I have used it quite a bit and it has lots of power. The only thing I don't like is it jumps out of drill mode when you are driving long screws and the clutch slips. I'm not sure if this is in the design or not. Otherwise it is a very compact drill that is very comfotable to use.

    I like the drill. I had a new one and it was stolen so I bought this refurbished one just like it because I liked it so much (good power to weight ratio) and so I could use the battery that was left behind from my first one. It's a good thing that I still have one battery from the first drill because one of the batteries that came with this refurbished drill won't take a charge. The drill was a little dirty (white powdery stuff) when it arrive but a damp rag soon had it looking almost new. There was a couple of scuffs on the rubber armor of the drill but that is to be expected with this kind of tool when buying refurbished. I'm going to see if I can get some warranty on this dead battery and I will try and update you all on how that goes.

    Can't find the physical difference between reconditioned and new. I have used the drill on several occasions and it has exceeded my expectations. I own a Dewalt 14 volt drill and this far exceeds it by being much lighter, better balanced and it seems to have more torq. I have purchased three Hitachi reconditioned products from you and I will always look to you for my next tool.

    Great drill at about one third the price of the identical item at Home Depot. Great at holding a charge, even when in really cold weather. Plenty of power. Unbeatable deal....

    I've used many competitive brands and none really compare in overall performance. They are controllable, strong and reliable and offer excellent battery life. The Hitachi line of drill & driver products excels in ease of use and performance! On a number of occasions while on a job I've loaned one to another tradesman because theirs died out and I always get a response like "I never would have expected that drill to be so good".

    Lightweight, powerful and works great. Replaced an older 14v Hitachi that worked well but had long-term battery issues. The LED is a nice addition to the newer models. This reconditioned unit had a few more cosmetic flaws than we were expecting, but no other issues or complaints.

    I really love the drill, but one of the batteries holds about half the charge as the other. Even the better one doesn't seem to last that long. I guess for the price it is hard to complain, but know what to expect with reconditioned.

    I've ordered 3 of these kits in the last year and each of the kits has come with (1) bad battery. Someone is failing to test the batteries in the kits. The first time (Fall of 2010) customer service sent a battery pack out at no charge. This year (August 2011) customer service would not help b/c we had not discovered the bad battery within 10 days of order. Had to contact Hitachi and a local repair center. Have been waiting over 1 month to receive a couple of new batteries. Will look elsewhere to order b/c of poor equipment and customer service.

    I recieved the product in a timely manner and it worked as described. I like the weight of the product. Still getting used to the lithium battery. It reacts different than NiMh battery, I was using. The Lithium runs longer at full torque and when it stops, it stops. The NiMh battery gradually loses power. All in all I will look to Big Sky Tool for my future tool purchases.

    This is the first Hitachi drill I've owned and so far (after 1 month) I'm very pleased with its performance and battery life. The included flashlight (powered by one of the 2 LiOn batteries) has also proven to be more useful than I expected it to be. I charged the drill immediately after unpacking and have used it several times since but haven't needed to recharge it. The flashlight turned out to be useful when i was doing repairs on the dryer since i could just "set it and forget it" during the procedure. BigSky gets my kudos as well since their delivery was ahead of schedule and the tools (refurbed) were as good as new ones.

    I am pretty impressed with the product itself, everything I thought it would be, the only problem I have and its a big one! The way it was packaged for shipping was not acceptable at all, it was as if someone received my order threw it into a box, not padding whatsoever and shipped it that way. That alone would make me think twice about ordering again from Big Sky Tool, its like no care at all about the shipping.

    It surpassed my expitation. Excellent quality and condition. My son who works for a remodeling company wants to trade me his new Hitachi drill and drill driver set for mine. His 18V are not the ion batteries and he is constantly recharging during the day. Ive been remodeling my entire basement and he's amazed at the length of charge my batteries hold.

    I have bought 3 of these sets. 1 for me and was so impressed friends wanted them too. They are an awesome deal, very reasonable priced fast shipping. I smile everytime I use mine. Batteries last a good time. I do electrical on the weekends and I never take my charger and batteries last all day, drilling 3/4 inch holes, drive 3inch panhead screws and sinking them in the wood. Anything Ive thrown at it it goes. Had a problem with the second set. The switch would only stay in high but a quick email to support and I had a new driver at my door in no time. Will buy more from this place. Thanks for the great support and prices.

    I like the product, but it still seems to not have full drive power as one might expect (it does silp on some screwing applications) Also I don't like that fact that it did not come with a place to hold an additional bit (need to always have at least two on hand - and when mounted on gun somewhere is - best)

    Product is as good as new. Since my first purchase, I have purchased an additional 3 Hitachi DS18DSAL drills. Each drill works beautifully......excellent reconditioned product from an A+++++ Ebay seller.

    This is a fantastic buy. Only paid $10 more for entire set than I could purchase one NICaD Battery for old drill. Love the lithium technology. Drill is lightweight yet has plenty of torque for heavy jobs. Also love the led light that illuminates the work in dark conditions. Have used flashlight for a variety of jobs and only had the set for 4 weeks. If you are in the market for a new cordless drill you can't go wrong with this product.

    Got it for a house warming gift to my son as he moves into his 1st house. I got one several months ago and LOVE it! Just can't say enough about it. Amazing torque - as much as a corded drill, easy to reverse and chucks fast. I use it every other day. Nice, Nice, Nice!

    Great little work horse of a drill, built a wood 12ft x 8 ft shed using 2 inch and 3 inch screws, powered right through, no slippage, even dropped the driver a couple of times from the roof and no problems. Great to have a second battery for back up, with heavy use the batteries lasted about 2 hours max.

    I've had the Driver/Drill for about a month and am completely satified with it's performance. It performs as new and I don't anticipate having any problems. I estimate I saved at least 35% compared to one from a Big-Box store.

    I have used the drill an have been well pleased with its performence. It has plenty of power for both drilling in wood or metal and the battery takes alot of use before needing recharging. I have not been disappointed in any of the Recomditioned tools I purchased. As for driving screws it has all the power you need. I used mine for decking screws and was well pleased.

    THE best drill I have owned. Had another 18v Hitachi for many years. But, this one is half the weight and size. Its great, and I really got a bargain, I can't tell it has ever been used.

    I am just a do-it-yourselfer, but a little demanding and abusive to my tools. This driver exceded my expectations and I use it instead of a drill on many applications. For the price the quality can't be equaled.

    I had been reluctant to join the cordless craze, but these drills were at such an outstanding price I couldn't resist. I have really enjoyed using the drills and highly recommend them. And buying from Big Sky / Recon was great as allways!

    Love the size, weight and power of the mini driver. I also eventually bought a 6 piece post battery kit and a recon 1/2" impact driver. Only mistake I made was getting a slide battery tool, because the batts are not compatible with the post batts in the tools that I bought later. Still a great tool and great value, and the batts last long enough that I really don't need more than 2 anyway. Still in the market for a miter saw, which I will definitely purchase here.

    Product looks and runs like new. Can't find anything near the quality at the big box stores. Told a professional handyman in the neighborhood about your sight and he ordered a drill and a drill driver. He was impressed and passed the info on to others.

    I was surprised and very impressed with the overall appearance of this reconditioned Hitachi drill. I expected more blems. This tool almost looks new. Job well done Reconditioned Sales!!!! The Hitachi DS18DSAL is very light and easy to maneuver. The light is a big plus. Great torque and the batteries stay charged for long periods in between use. It;s also very rugged as I have, OOPS, dropped it quite a few time from my ladder. ;o)

    This was the "A" grade reconditioned unit. Quite simply, it was as good as new. It looked brand new and it operates as new. All original parts and accessories (with the exception of an owners manual) are included, including the case. I'm very pleased. The drill does have two shortcomings which have nothing to do with it being reconditioned: 1) it has no bit holder, and 2) the clutch, even at its highest setting, is fairly weak. I added a bit holder made for Makita drills. It screws onto the drill body where the belt hanger mounting hole is. It works quite well. As for the weak clutch, you can overcome it by turning the clutch up to the drill position. However, this eliminates the clutch function. Another peculiarity to this drill (and all Li-po battery powered drills) is that it cuts out suddenly when the battery reaches a weak state. There is almost no indication or warning that this will happen as the battery provides almost full power up until the point at which it quits. The remedy, simply is to switch batterys and charge the weak one. Be sure to keep your spare battery charged. The battery does provide good power and for a long time before it needs recharging.

    Great product at a fantastic price. Only problem is drill is light (good) but when you really get down to business the torque is so great it will twist your arm if you are not hanging on.

    This drill was sold as grade C but I could only find a few very small scuffs on it. It was about half price of a brand new one. It's light weight, has plenty of torque, and has a light so I can see where I'm drilling. The one unknown for me is how long these batteries will work before needing replacing. Time will tell on that, but overall this is a very nice drill.

    I have been a carpenter for over 25 years and have purchased several tools of all different types and brands. I was on a job and borrowed a drill from a homeowner, it was this Hitachi 18 volt lithium. It was smooth running and comfortable in my hand. So I decided to buy the refurbished drill and flashlight combo for $79.00 to ad to my tool collection and I will probably purchase other items in the future. The drill works as expected and the flashlight is a bonus. The package arrived on time and in like new condition, very pleased.

    Wow - much better than expected. Drill seems new and after several weeks of heavy use it hasn't shown the slightest sign of any weakness. This is a very powerful drill - so powerful it would benefit from a side handle to help control its' torque.
