Question by Rick G: Are Hitachi cordless power tools switching to the new slide batteries going forward?
I’m looking at buying a new drill/driver set and noticed Hitachi now uses a slide style battery on some drill models. I’m concerned about compatibility with products they introduce in the future.
Answer by Tedruski
Hitachi is almost as bad as Ryobi for getting parts. The best brand for compatability on batteries/chargers is DeWALT. Milwaukee has *&$ #@ off many loyal Milwaukee owners by constantly creating new tools/batteries/chargers that are not compatable with the previous models. The batteries are also sub-par.
We quit taking in Hitachi/Ryobi tools for repairs as it takes forever to get parts in – oh, Add Makita to that list also. Makita is slowly vanishing from existance.
DeWALT is the best in engineering their tools and battery systems.
* And oh yeah, these 5 year warranties that other brands are advertising. Get a copy of that warranty and you will notice it is only for *defects in workmanship and does not cover normal wear and tear such as switches/brushes/motors/gearing.
A good drill is going to cost you some money – it is as simple as that. You get exactly what you pay for.
