Hitachi Unleashes Powerful New Cordless Drills


This may not be the usual type of mobile technology we cover, but hey, if it takes batteries and it does stuff you need to do, then why not. It defiantly serves more purpose than a few other things we have covered. This is one sexy looking green drill, everyone at work would be jealous if you busted this out on the job, sure they would wonder what space aged aliens you are planning to defend the crew against, but those 2×4’s stand no chance.

See press release below.

Hitachi Power Tools today launched two world-class additions to their cordless drill series. The Hitachi DS18DMR and Hitachi DS14DMR incorporate the most advanced features available for professionals and/or ‘weekend warriors’ who demand a tool engineered to withstand the most demanding projects.

The DS18DMR is Hitachi’s new 18-Volt cordless driver drill that delivers 550 in/lbs of torque (class leading). It comes with two high-capacity 3.0Ah batteries that ensure longer run time between charges. The DS14DMR is the 14-Volt cordless driver drill that delivers 450 in/lbs of torque (class leading) and comes with two high-capacity 2.0Ah batteries. Both offer 2-speed transmissions that feature no-load RPMs of 0-400/1600. These drills are also some of the most compact and lightweight cordless drills in their class. Measuring just over 9 inches and weighing approximately 5 lbs, they allow for greater flexibility and ease of use in tight or overhead spaces.

The new cordless driver drills are designed to address and exceed the needs of professionals. A two-piece rare-earth magnet motor guarantees reliable power. Tool life is greatly extended with replaceable armatures and externally accessible carbon brushes. Both drills are engineered with heavy duty, industrial grade Rohm chucks that reduce bit slippage and improve durability. A 22-stage ratcheting slip-clutch is incorporated for high torque and precision driving applications. The DS18DMR and DS14DMR feature Hitachi’s patented 5-position belt hook with an integrated LED work light to illuminate dark workspaces. And their new aggressive, ergonomic design, coupled with a non-slip rubber grip, provides more control, comfort and safety.

The Hitachi DS18DMR and DS14DRM cordless drills are packaged in durable injection molded plastic carrying cases that include a quick charger, two batteries, side handle attachment and driver bit.
