Hitachi DV18DBFL2 18V Li-Ion Cordless Brushless Combi Drill 2 x 3.0Ah is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light for the power it has, comfortable, brushless Bought this set (DV18DBFL2) with the 2x 3Ah batteries. It was the cheapest 18V drill on the market from a reputable brand, brush-less motor and a pair of more-than 2AH batteries. I have not owned or used a 18V cordless drill so far - so have not really something similar to compare it to other that corded hammer-drills and 10.8/12V cordless ones. But I will share my thoughts after a month and so everyday-use so far: We have a small cabinet and kitchen producing workshop in England and after the last corded drill gave up the spirit - we decided to try replace it wit a cordless one. I was wondering between this one and the bigger brother, the Hitachi DV18DBXL, the latter having twice the torque (136Nm against 70Nm hard torque). But considering that we use it in the workshop mostly for drilling wood - I decided to go for the smaller and lighter one and I don't regret it so far. I have tried in hand the bigger models form Hitachi, Dewalt and Makita - and the difference in weight is noticeable. If you use it often during the day - this one would be more comfortable and cause less fatigue. It has a very slim grip and is really comfortable to use. The all metal chuck fells and looks good too and does not have any noticeable wobble. The brush-less motor does not emit the familiar carbon smell of the brushed ones after heavy use and one can see no sparks inside :). If I compare it to a corded hammer drill - this Hitachi is a pleasure to use, it's weight is very balanced (not front-heavy as the corded hammer-drills are) and you can drill holes all day long with one hand, not caring about cables, socket location in the workshop or wrist and hand fatigue. It's 1800RPMs are not the 3-4000RPMs of the corded ones and it is quite noticeable, for harder surfaces I suppose it would lack. I have used it as a screwdriver for driving screws and it functions quite well, fast and accurate with the clutch-settings It's just that it is still a bit heavy for this task if you use it often for screws I think. I much prefer the 12V Bosh smaller ones for screwing, for putting screws in wood they work perfect. The 18V Hitachi is much better and useful as a drill than a 10.8/12V ones though, the power and torque is noticeably more. We did use it as a real drill with the hammer function - setting for drilling masonry on a kitchen-fitting that we did recently - and it did the job excellent. The charger it comes with is really light - so light that it looks suspicious what is in there...but it charges the batteries fine so far. One thing that confused me at the beginning - was that the two-indications for the battery charge on the device go off one by one pretty quick. It took me some time to figure out that even when they both go flat - there is still some 50% or more juice in it, I thought initially that it is only 10-15%, but it is not the case. Also - I think that when new - after a few charges the batteries start keeping longer. It is something that I have read in the reviews - that this two-bar battery system on the Hitachi-tools is somewhat unreliable and uninformative, compared to the marks on the other brands. So far - so good with this Hitachi.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Pleased Needed a cordless drill when working at relative's house, as did not want the hassle of my normal 240v kit. I bought this when it was on offer. Pleased with it's performance so far. Only time will tell on it's reliability. Only niggle is the long charging time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from TopNotch Drill Purchased to replace / addition to an aging Makita which gave good service but batteries now poor. Very pleased with the power & compactness of this machine. Time will tell on durability but I have high hopes for it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolute fantastic drill I done a fair bit of research on this drill and being a engineer it was a no brainier and the price at toolstation was spot on for a drill of such quality.I am very pleased with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from high quality... I bought this to replace a Makita. I have had a number of 18v Combi drills over the last 10 years. The first Makita not great gearbox or chuck but the motor was nice, the 3 NiMH batteries failed first. Then a DeWalt a good drill the motor wasn't as nice as the Makita's but the Chuck and gearbox was better the 2 NiCAD batteries failed first. Then another Makita Lion battery still fine but the gearbox has failed. I think this it is a better bit of kit as the motor is as good as the Makita's and the chuck and gearbox appear to be as good as the DeWalt although time will tell the only thing is a relatively slow charger.
