It is all pretty intuitive to use. I'm a fan of Hitachi and have been for many years. The box arrived with the drill in it. I’ve owned mine for close to 9 months. The control on the trigger is staggering.

It's true that the DEWALT DCD777C2 20V Max Lithium-Ion Brushless Compact Drill Driver was the Brushless Power Drills that we graded at the top. That being said, there were several other very high quality Brushless Power Drills worth showcasing here that barely fell short.

Hitachi is yet another leading producer of Power Drills. They build the tool next on our rundown. Hitachi's Power Drills are no exception. It was terrific to test the DS18DBFL2. I was very happy with this tool!

This Power Drill is just $129.99. That is a great deal for a quality Power Drill like the DS18DBFL2 by Hitachi. The Hitachi DS18DBFL2 is definitely a solid option. Of you are unsure about our top selection, I would opt for this Power Drill.

Hitachi DS18DBFL2 Features

Hitachi Power Tools has renamed to Metabo HPT. Same great tools, with only a new name.

Brushless Motor Technology for higher efficiency, increased run time and longer tool life

Professional grade power with 620 inches/pounds of turning torque and up to 1,800 RPM

Powered by Hitachi's 18V Lithium Ion slide type batteries for fade free power and lighter weight than NiCd batteries

Ratcheting 1/2 inches keyless all metal chuck for quick and simple bit replacements and secure holding power

22 stage + 1 clutch settings delivers 22 torque settings and a drill mode for ultimate precision and control

Optical trigger switch for a more responsive variable speed actuation, and wear resistant trigger assembly

Built in LED light effectively illuminates dark work spaces

The DEWALT DCD791D2 and the PS32-02 by Bosch are well worth taking a look at also. Both tool brands are well known for their high quality Power Drills. Both tools are rated highly also. The DEWALT received a user rating of 4.7/5 as contrasted against the 4.7/5 star rating given to the Bosch PS32-02.

The DCD791D2 by DEWALT has several features you wont find on competing Power Drills. For example DEWALT brushless motor which delivers up to 57% more run time. The PS32-02 by Bosch however, is tough to beat with Compact: Lightest, most compact 12V EC brush less drill/driver in class plus Precision: This easy to use power drill weighs only 2 pounds, making it a great choice for extended drilling and driving overhead.

I can easily recommend both of these Brushless Power Drills

Has a drill setting and a screw setting. Great Power Drill for a great price. I love the speed control of this drill. I don't need to buy any other parts. The DEWALT DCD791D2 is a labor saver.

It has plenty of power to turn most normal screws. Not a big deal, though, just popped it back in. Dude, this little bitty is no joke. Other than the size, this drill works great. It was also easy to get different bits in and out.

It does not have a ton of power to it. This is a replacement for one that was burned up. If I need max torque then I'll grab my DEWALT DCD791B. This causes the chuck to loosen up over time. Price is affordable and worth the value.

Has amazing power and adjustable torque setting. This one is lightweight and very easy to use. The drill is just not made the same as the picture. It killed my back and shoulders. Now I only have to carry one case.

I'm very satisfied with this outcome. I like the way it handles during use. I'm a fan of Makita and have been for many years. Even square drive screws can't take full torque. Good Power Drill at a good price point.

Excellent efficient and cost effective Power Drill. This is a replacement for one that was burned up. This one is lightweight and very easy to use. Not a big deal, though, just popped it back in. This causes the chuck to loosen up over time.

Makita really dropped the ball here. These are more efficient and seem stronger. As good as it gets for a Power Drill. Normal stuff that anyone would do. The box arrived with the drill in it.
