Any info on Hitachi cordless drills?

Hi I am new to this site. My dewalt drill has seen its last days so I am looking for a new cordless drill. I have been leaning towards the Hitachi lithium ion 18 v because of price and what reviews I have read. I am an electrician by trade so it will be used everyday. I am wondering what you guys think about Hitachi

Hitachi does have a nice 18v cordless drill. I have read a lot of good reviews on the 18v lithium ion batteries.

Hitachi Cordless Drill

It is really hard to go wrong with Hitachi. Hitachi has one of the best lithium battery out there. They are known for their batteries and electronics. We would recommend the KC18DFL. This is the 1.5 amp two pack (includes the Hitachi Cordless Drill and Impact Driver, 2 batteries, carrying case, and charger). It will run in the low $200.00 range for the 18V.
We also recommend the Hitachi KC18DCL. This has a little longer life, 3 amp lithium battery, and a heavier built tool. It also includes the hammering action and will run in the low $300's.
Most of the electricians buy the lighter option, KC18DFL.
