The Hitachi WH18DL 18-Volt Lithium-Ion Impact Driver is a powerful, lightweight cordless tool ideal for most drilling, driving, and fastening applications--everything from hanging doors and installing cabinetry to tightening carriage bolts, driving lags, and sinking deck screws. With an industry-leading warranty and Hitachi's exclusive HXP lithium-ion technology, the WH18DL Impact Driver is a reliable tool that has plenty of power to get the job done.
Powerful Drilling, Driving, and Fastening
With enough power to rival professional automotive wrenches, the WH18DL has an industrial-grade two-piece motor that features heavy-gauge copper coils for maximum power and long-lasting performance. And you know the WH18DL will pack a punch: it delivers an impact rate of up to 3,200 BPM, a no-load variable speed of 0-2,600 RPM, and up to 1,330 in./lbs. of torque. For ultimate control, a unique two-step speed switch allows you to select between two power settings: Power Mode (0-2,600 RPM) and Save Mode (0-2,000 RPM).
With all that power, you have to keep things cool. Thankfully, Hitachi's unique cool flow technology sends a steady stream of air to the motor, which enables the impact to run harder and longer than most impact drivers without risking burnout.
Full of User-Friendly Features
Like all Hitachi tools, the WH18DL is full of features that were designed with the user in mind. To start, a non-slip Elastomer grip keeps you in complete control of the tool and provides comfort for all-day jobs. What's more, the driver weighs only 3.5 pounds, so it is extremely easy to maneuver and transport. A patented five-position belt hook with integrated LED offers easy portability, as well as illumination in dimly lit areas.
For further convenience, the WH18DL features a quick-change bit system that makes changing drill bits as easy as can be. The 1/4-inch hex chuck requires no tools for bit changes--simply pull out, insert the bit, and release the chuck. An added bonus, integrated storage right on the tool holds two additional bits.
Additionally, the WH18DL is fitted with externally accessible carbon brushes and replaceable armature for easy maintenance and longer overall life.
HXP Batteries Last Three Times Longer and Weigh 50% Less
The WH18DL owes its light weight to two HXP Lithium-Ion batteries (included). These 3.0-Ah batteries weigh half of what traditional NiCd or NiMH batteries weigh. In fact, tools featuring HXP batteries are on average one pound lighter than tools using traditional batteries.
Additionally, HXP batteries last three times longer than their competition. Where NiCd and NiMH batteries could be used for up to 500 charge cycles, HXP Lithium-Ion batteries can be used for up to 1,500 charge cycles! An added bonus, the included quick charger replenishes the battery power in just 40 minutes, so you have less down time.
HXP Lithium-Ion batteries operate within optimal voltage limits, protecting both the tool and batteries from damage. Protection circuitry built into the batteries and charger monitors the charge and discharge for each battery cell, resulting in peak operating performance.
And if a surge in power is detected during use, Hitachi's Over-Current Protection technology will temporarily shut of the power to protect the batteries and tool from being damaged. This feature allows the power to return to optimal voltage, thereby extending battery and tool life beyond any competitive lithium-ion products.
HXP batteries come with a two-year HXP Lithium-Ion Battery Warranty, which protects against possible defects in materials and workmanship.
The Industry's Longest Lithium-Ion Tool Warranty
Every Hitachi cordless power tool is designed to the highest standards and is rigorously tested for both performance and durability. All HXP Lithium-Ion cordless tools come with a Lifetime Lithium-Ion Tool Warranty, which protects against possible defects in materials and workmanship.
