The Hitachi brand is in my opinion a strange one. Some people love this brand and others do not. However those that do love it, really do fall in love with their products for the most part.
As a company they have won a whole range of design awards. They are based in Milton Keynes in the UK and are of course part of the bigger Hitachi Japanese company. They have been in existence since 1948.
Hitachi - The Company and Brand
Hitachi came to the UK in 1981 and made an instant hit with many of their products. They pride their company on making very well designed and reliable tools fully backed up by an excellent customer service.
Their main goal is to make sure that should you buy any of their tools you are completely satisfied with your purchase.
Hitachi do three main ranges of tools which are corded tools, cordless tools and outdoor gardening tools. Their cordless drills clearly sit in their wide ranging list of cordless products. In this range they also do saws, screwdrivers, vacuums, radios, lighting etc.
The one thing that we know for certain is they make high quality tools, but they do come at a hefty price. They range in price from around £100-400 so these are not cheap products, and are at the higher end of the market. If you prefer something cheaper then we would recommend either Draper of Black & Decker.
Below we have listed the Top 10 Hitachi cordless drills by those that have received the highest rating. These ratings are taken from Amazon buyers, who have bought and used the product. They have then taken the time to leave a review. At least that way, you know that it is based on the opinions of a whole range of buyers, and not just the opinion of one or two people.
