    Just saw a video of the new Hitachi triple head impact, first impression,
    Pretty powerful
    Compact 3ah battery packs,
    Nice case, and a great charger that can also charge with the USB port.

    Agreed, very impressive features and a nice storage box, too.

    BE the change you want to see.

    Nice to see a new innovation, I wonder if they will incorporate this stuff into their metabo impacts as well.

    sweet impactor, i haven’t had the opportunity to play with any of them. None of the people I know run hitachi impactors. It’s always milwaukee and bosch and makita.

    This was like 10 years ago when they came out with their first li ion imppactor but I used a Hitachi foe a bit and it heated up so much you couldn’t even touch it

    Finally a LED that can be turned on indefinitely! Bosch are you watching?

    I like the feature of shutting off the led light . Plus the setting for different speeds to drill
    Into .

    Always willing to learn .

    Wow, I think having four different settings on power delivery is a really great feature. And those 3.0 Ah batteries look really compact! I also like the storage in the carrying case – just adds to its versatility and makes it less likely someone buying this would want to just toss the case. All in all, it sounds like a great tool.

    I was never a huge fan of their power / cordless tools, but it is nice to see them take the lead on something.

    I really like the little touch on their charger by adding the USB port.

    Wow that is a really compact size. Very short looks to be able to fit in some tight places.

    Another feature I thought was cool, is that if it gets wet, it’s not going to affect the tool, that’s neat if you’re working on a deck, and you get a down pour.

    I have had some work colleges who have had the first generation Hitachi lithium cordless, I was never really impressed,

    But just looking at the extra features on this one, looks like they have been listening to what people have been asking for

    Compact 3ah battery packs, very decent charger, with USB port, and a case with a built-in storage for hardware.

    And the fact that it’s water resistant.

    I wonder if this has anything to do with the Hitachi acquisition of Matabo. Nice to see them both stepping up their game.

    Hitachi owns Metabo now?

    That would make sense. Will be good to see Hitachi step up there cordless lineup.
    Just hope it doesn’t bring Matabo down.

    Yep, they closed the deal back in November of last year.

    Wow, pretty impressive list and line up, they look like they are heavy duty, the jobsite light looks huge

    If they put metabo motors in hitachi it will be a game changer for them
    In the market place .

    I hope so too. Metabo makes such a great tool very high quality. The landscape is littered with companies that bought high quality tool manufactures then cheapened the tool while capitalizing on the name and reputation, they squeeze all they can out of it and then dump it.
