      We often find ourselves doing small repairs around the home ourselves rather then pay the cost of having to have someone else come in and do them. To make some of these repairs easier we purchased a Hitachi DS18DVF3 18 volt Cordless Drill Kit. We already owned a simple12V drill, but it just wasn’t powerful enough to take on some of the tasks that we needed it to do.

      After comparing many cordless drill sets and models, we found that the Hitachi DS18DVF3 was a fair priced one which had a gear box for switching from speed and torque. With the gearbox you can change between 1:1 (0-1200 rpm) and


      1:3 (0-400 rpm). This will up the torque by same ratio in slower gear. The Hitachi DS18DVF3 18 volt Cordless Drill Kit also has larger chuck size. This gives 13mm.

      Another cool feature of this drill is that it provides fine tune adjustment of the clutch in 22 steps for the torque. It is very detailed which is nice because we are able to use it to do many different types of jobs, large and small. The clutch locks in the last position which allows the drill to perform in full power of 400in/lbs.

      The casing easily fits either hand. This drill has superb grip comfort and impact protection. This drill ...


      • is also easy to hold in any position. Both my husband and I are able to comfortably and easily hold this drill.

        The Hitachi DS18DVF3 18 volt Cordless drill uses NiCd batteries. The batteries for this drill charge up fast and allows for the drill to get plenty of torque. However, one flaw is that the power drops a bit as the charge wears off.

        This drill kit comes with a flashlight and drill bit included which is a nice little bonus.

        We use this drill often and it has never failed us. We have used it for numerous repair jobs around the house as well as to fix things for

        a friend at their house. My husband often uses it when he is busy working on one of his projects. He and I both are always pleased with the performance of this drill and with the ease of use. Recharging it when necessary is painless too, as this can be done in under 30 minutes.

        In summary, the The Hitachi DS18DVF3 18 volt Cordless Drill Kit is a very handy tool to have. It is well built, durable and easy to hold and use. It has plenty of power and allows for fine tuning/adjustment, which makes it a perfect drill for just about any drilling job. Overall, we are very satisfied with this drill.
