Rated 5 out of 5Â by Brazil Good machine
Only used it once so far as only bought it Saturday LOL, but it served me well for drilling through tiles, pipe holes, etc, on a bathroom refit.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by TheHouseDoctor Nice to use -BUT
I bought this toll to replace another Hitachi which had performed excellently for many years.
I have had this tool in use for only 3 months & the hammer has become intermittent. I am not impressed with the quality of the newer model and am just about to return it under warranty but still will be inconvenienced while its away.

This SDS Plus hammer with rotary stop is up there with the Bosch. Both Bosch & Hitachi are a nicer feel than the builder standard Dewalt. I've had 6 years (2 drills) of oil leaking SDS chuck Dewalts that died on time wherease a Bosch that just keeps going. This Hitachi feels like a Bosch, lighter, quieter, and surprisingly powerful. Nice feel, easy to use, no leaks. Comes with a small case (unlike cavernous Dewalt) useful for storage & nothing else, not even factory sealed so best not to buy from a branch. Thinner than bother dewalt & Bosch, probably slightly more power.

Excellent value with a 3 year guarantee, seems like a solid bit of kit!
Only used briefly so can't comment on reliability.
