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

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

    Doesn’t seem like it. Check out all the new stuff they are putting out…

    The new stuff does look good. But I would imagine everything coming out now would have already been in the works before Hitachi purchased Matabo.

    Today at the local lumber yard there was a small event with a few dozen venders. They had this impact at the Hitachi booth, and it was impressive. I didn’t expect that from Hitachi. They had some type of 4 inch lag srews s to try out the driver. It was pretty fast. The guys I work said it was faster than my Makita brushless impact. So I went to my car and got the Makita, and we had a race. The Hitachi put in 3 lags to the Makita’s 2. It wasn’t close.

    Overall it seems to be a good tool.

    Wow who would of thought that from Hitachi? Looks like a lot of tools companies are stepping up their game, RIDGID, Hitachi, and Ryobi. Ryobi just announced a new high power battery similar to the CORE.

    Very true Bill,
    I didn’t know about the battery from Ryobi, do you have any information or links about it

    Oh wow, thanks Bill, that’s great, looking like they will be using the update batteries like Bosch?
    Great write up

    Did you guys see the interior of this impact? wires, epoxy etc…
    Its not well built like bosch, makita, dewalt…
    Hopefully it goes well for them now with this one.

    I just came across this thread for the first time and I gotta say Hitachi put some great thoughts and technology into this tool. IP56 rating? that’s pretty cool.

    Has anyone purchased one yet?

    Have you seen inside of one, has to be pretty well built if it can take those tests,
    I would like to see the difference between the Hitachi and the other brands.

    That is good. Does anyone else put out their ratings?

    Its IP 56 but the inside its not well built, I’ll get a picture and post here
    In fact it has technology, speed and power…but quality is a group of things.
    Please don’t get me wrong, Im not here judging, it is my personal experience and opinion.

    But that is to be expected with a lower price. It has the power at a lower price which for some guys is all that matters.

    Oh no, don’t worry, I’m definitely not judging.
    I know Bosch tools are well built, I see plenty of other manufacturers on our repair department shelves
    And the odd Bosch tools
    Was just curious to see if you had any pictures

    Thats the main point Bill, a cheap tool which can sell out.
    In addition to that, its just a matter of time to the wear and tear show up.
    Again, don´t get me wrong cause I know people which had problems with Liechtensteiner tools, sometimes it happens, and I´m not saying Hitachi triple hammer is a bad tool, but personally I would not get them.

    Brian, have a look and compare build quality between them all.

    I believe Hitachi Tools have a lifetime warranty though. That makes a difference.

    @bbernardesjr87 interesting pictures,
    The view of the back of the Hitachi, that’s the one that really shows.

    If you say so, I have no clue about that. If yes it´s good.
