Hitachi Power Tools (NYSE: HIT) today announced the launch of its new line of 18V Brushless Motor Lithium Ion cordless products. Kicking off the series is an 18V Lithium Ion Brushless Driver Drill (3.0Ah) - the DS18DBL- available now with more tools launching this Spring/Summer. Hitachi’s Brushless technology is delivered via a micro-processor chip that manages the tool’s motor, resulting in up to 50% longer run time between charges, increased power, and extended durability with essentially no maintenance. Hitachi’s signature ergonomic design for the DS18DBL tool body makes it extremely well-balanced and comfortable for extended use. Covered by Hitachi’s Lifetime Lithium Ion tool warranty and 2-year Lithium Ion battery warranty, the DS18DBL stands alone against other professional drills on the market today.

Hitachi’s DS18DBL 18V Lithium Ion Brushless Driver Drill delivers professional grade power with an impressive 593 in-lbs of turning torque. Unique to the DS18DBL is an electronic speed control switch. With the simple push of a button, the user can select from 4 different speeds. Coupled with the two-step gearing feature, this allows for eight different speed / power calibrations providing the user the ability to finely set the driver drill depending on the application. Compact at 8.1” in length and lightweight at just 4.4 lbs, the DS18DBL reduces fatigue in extended or overhead use applications.

Hitachi Brushless Technology

A microprocessor controls the current flow through the motor. There are no carbon brushes, which prevent maintenance and unexpected downtime. Minimal heat is produced and motor wear is decreased due to lack of mechanical contact on the motor. The overall result with Hitachi’s Brushless technology is that the battery can last up to 50% longer per charge meaning more work completed and less downtime. The tool is virtually maintenance free and is more responsive, efficient and powerful during use. Micro-processor technology additionally allows for a “smart” tool meaning it is capable of advanced speed digital settings for ultimate precision and control based on the application. The benefits of Hitachi Brushless technology can be summed up in one statement- Intelligently Powerful.
