Let’s look at 2 pieces of the kit to give you a flavour of the greatness you’ll get.
Hitachi C18DSL/W4 18V Li-ion Cordless Circular Saw. It’s the ideal circular saw for precise bevel cuts on timber, MDF and plywood. It comes equipped with a 24-tooth TCT blade and a built-in spotlight for working in dark areas.
Both lightweight and robust, it features an electronic brake which will stop the blade spinning the second you release the trigger. Speed-wise the 165mm blade spins at 3400rpm, making it perfect for rip and cross cuts. The absence of a riving knife makes plunge cutting easy, and the thin (1.6mm) kerf on the supplied made helps reduce the amount of work the motor needs to do while cutting, helping to prolong battery life, plus making the cuts accurate and smooth.
Hitachi DN18DSL L4 Cordless Angle Drill/Driver. The DN18DSL L4 is perfect for drilling and screwing in narrow spaces. Equipped with keyless chuck, a drill bit can be easily replaced by holding the main unit with one hand while turning the sleeve with the other hand. The variable speed trigger will spin the chuck up to 1400rpm, allowing you to drill up to 24mm into softwood and 10mm into mild steel.
Along with the 7 cordless tools, you get a large, wheeled carry case, 2 18v batteries and charger the very handy UB18DGL light, which is perfect as we move into the long, dark winter days. Read our winter jobsite lighting guide here.
