Lightweight lithium-ion batteries and a charger (both included) save you time and energy.
Superior Power-to-Weight Ratio
Offering 44 inch/pounds of torque in a body that weighs less than one pound, the DB3DL has a better power-to-weight ratio than the competition. And with a two-speed transmission that offers maximum no-load speeds of either 200 or 600 RPM, this screwdriver fastens and pre-drills wood, mild steel, aluminum, and more.
Additionally, the DB3DL’s 21-stage clutch provides both high torque and precision driving. A reversing trigger switch lets you quickly choose from 0-600 RPM for the job at hand.
Chock-Full of User-Friendly Features
In addition to its powerful motor, the DB3DL has a host of features that help you get the job done with comfort and convenience. To start, this screwdriver features a non-slip elastomer-grip handle that makes long jobs more comfortable. The handle is adjustable to two positions, allowing for a choice of straight-grip or pistol-grip operation.
For added convenience, the DB3DL includes a 1/4-inch quick-change hex chuck with bit lock for fast and easy bit changes. An added bonus, an integrated LED work light helps illuminate dark work areas.
Designed to reach places that other cordless screwdrivers just can’t, the Hitachi DB3DL is compact and lightweight, measuring 9.75 inches and weighing just 0.9 pounds.
HXP Lithium-Ion Batteries Last 3X Longer and Weigh 50% Less
The DB3DL owes its light weight to two HXP lithium-ion batteries. These 1.5 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–these batteries will last approximately 500 charges before needing to be replaced. Overall, less frequent battery charges and longer battery life mean reduced operation costs for you.
The DB3DL’s charger will power the tool’s batteries in just 30 minutes and features a built-in Cool Air Flow system to maintain optimal charging temperature.
Every Hitachi cordless power tool is designed to the highest standards and rigorously tested for both performance and durability. Like all HXP lithium-ion cordless tools, the DB3DL comes with a lifetime lithium-ion tool warranty, which protects against possible defects in materials and workmanship. Also, the tool’s batteries come with a two-year warranty and the charger comes with a one-year warranty.
What’s in the Box
DB3DL cordless driver drill, 2 3.6-volt HXP 1.5 Ah lithium-ion batteries (326263), charger (UC3SFL), and case (326346).
Great little tool! Well built, comfy, light, powerful
Similar to the panasonic/milwaukee 3.6v driver but better. It is a little bigger but not much, grips better due to the nice rubber nubs in the grip, has an LED that can be turned on or off, and a nice size forward and reverse thumb switch. It has a quick release chuck that holds the bit unlike the others I mentioned, so your bits don’t fall out. I own the milwaukee also, so I know of which I speak. Full range clutch that can even do light drilling. Comes with a nice charger and TWO batteries. Again, beats the others in overall value and features. Well built and ergonomically excellent. Also comes with a nice little case, again the others don’t. Great deal on a great tool. You’ll find yourself using this on every project that requires screws, nut drivers or small drill bits.
