    So really the big cost is in the charger and batteries.

    I dont think i could get the charger and batteries for less than $150.

    Yeah. Looking at what the makita ones offer too. Would be looking for both a drill and impact wrench.

    I do like the sheer size of the hitachi.

    Yeah. Exactly. It's quite small compared to the makita. Remember I have a full plbed air setup in the garage too.

    I can't find any of the little ones. The 3 toolshops I've been to today only have the big ones

    Two of the shops flat out said that there wasn't a smaller one. All wanted to sell the dewalt or hitachi

    Another vote for the Hitachi 18v. I've got air lines in my garage but find I'm using the electric more and more, it is small and without the hassle of an air line dragging everywhere. For most jobs it is fine but I still break out the air rattle gun for tough jobs.

    I was tossing up between Makita and Hitachi myself the Hitachi has 1.5Ah and 3.0ah options in batteries too- I really liked the Makita jobsite radio in their pack

    Its good shit -

    the thing that swayed me to the hitachi was the fact every skin is $150-$200 whereas the makita varies HEAPs in price - the bloody jigsaw was $400 from memory

    Cant go wrong with the Makita product - it depends what you want to pay and whether the hitachi will do the job for you - I'm not a tradie and for the home handy man/mechanic its more than capable

    Its not the hammerdrill that i want to be small, i dont mind too much how big that one is. Its the impact wrench which is the big sucker.

    The Hitachi impact wrench is about 1/2 of the size of the Makita one.

    I got a factory reco DV18DL hitachi hammerdrill with 2 3A batts and a 110v charger for $151 US, add a $50 transformer & win. WR18DL impact wrench skin for US$120 is in the post.

    Unbelievable value for money.

    I've used my rattle gun on big bolts but sometimes a bit hesitant to use them on engine bolts!

    Is there any issue with say removing 12mm bolts with a rattle run??

    It depends in the size of the drive on it... 1/2in, 3/4in etc etc

    Tort, how much was shipping from Texas. Both have them, but Texas have the DV18DL for the same price as the DS18DL at Reco.

    Takai, I used a US remailer, I think it was about US$60, extortion, but better than the local option. I think the package was 7.5kg, more than I thought it would be. Yeah, I chose the hammer drill from the Texas mob for around the same non-hammer price as elsewhere. Just email to check recon grade - the reco place grades them, mine would have been grade C from the Texas mob. Drill had obviously been used, batteries looked new, charger looked newish with some dust.

    Mucho win, all of it just showed up. The reconditioned drill looks brand new, no scuffs or anything on it.
