The most advanced, most powerful, and most well-designed impact driver around.
Hitachi's WH18DBDL2 - aka the "Triple Hammer" - is in a class completely by itself. Their previous model, which came out in 2011, was already advanced for its time, but this is the most advanced impact driver I've ever seen.

To start with, it comes packaged with a sturdy, durable, double-decker storage container, with the top section unlocking for compartmentalized storage of screws, drill bits, etc. by unfastening the center latch. Unfastening the two side latches opens up the section for the driver, charger, and space to accommodate two batteries, with plenty of space for every size of Hitachi's slide-style, lithium-ion batteries.

The batteries included in this kit are their most recent compact 3.0 ah batteries, which offer the same amount of power as their larger 3.0 versions which have been on the market for years. (and yes, this is compatible with all of Hitachi's 18v slide-style lithium-ion batteries).

The tool itself offers a bevy of options which are accessible through electronically operated buttons on the front and side of the tool. On the front of the tool's base are switches for a battery indicator light and light settings. By toggling the light setting switch, you can program the tool to illuminate its LED light when the trigger is pressed, for the light to stay on regardless of whether the trigger is pressed or not, or for the light to simply stay off. It's a very helpful feature as most other power tools with LEDs come on automatically, which isn't necessary when working in broad daylight.

A button on the side of the tool's base allows the user to select between the driver's 4 speeds. The first speed, "soft mode", is precision-based for small-diameter screws, which is extremely useful when power can take a backseat to more delicate fastening applications such as cabinetry work. The second speed, "normal mode", operates under the soft mode's RPM (900) with an increase in torque. This mode is perfect for tightening short screws and affixing plasterboard. The third speed, "power mode", maximizes this unit's considerable torque (1,832 in-lbs./207n-M) and bumps up the speed (2,900 RPM max) and is what you'll want to work under for tightening long screws and bolts. The fourth speed, "self-drilling screw" mode, allows for the same amount of power as "power mode" but starts off with a slower RPM before speeding up after a couple of seconds, which makes this mode perfect for using decking and Tap-con screws! By allowing the speed to start off slower, it gives you more time to calibrate and center your fastener before this tool's power does the rest.

In addition to all of these features, Hitachi is the first company that has incorporated a third anvil into this impact driver (as compared to the two anvils present in other impact drivers) which creates less vibration and a much smoother, more fluid driving experience. I drove several decking screws through stacked 2x4s for my project and the difference in the reduced vibration, speed, and power is amazing compared to my other brushless impacts! This tool is also noteworthy for being IP56 rated, rendering it dust and water resistant.

Last, but certainly not least, is the charger that comes with this kit! This has to be the fastest battery charger I've ever used; the fan-cooled charger completely recharged my 3.0 battery in approximately 20 minutes, and can charge a 6.0 battery in less than 40 minutes! In addition, the charger also has a USB port and a new light-based system which is different from Hitachi's old blinking red LED light. The unit defaults to a blinking red LED when not in use, flashes blue when charging, and flashes green (with an accompanying beep) once it's fully charged.

The Triple Hammer is already in a class by itself with the 3-anvil configuration, but when you combine the IP56 rating, the smallest and lightest 3.0 batteries on the market, the 2-in-1 storage case, and the fastest/most efficient battery charger by any company, it all adds up to a best-in-its-class combination. Highest recommendation!
