My Poor Hitachi Drill

Recommended Posts

Great video and a sore loss ;)

Poor girl finally gave it her last go. Shows you the quality of the tool though, even at her last moment she wouldn't stop blowing smoke!!!!

You going to stick with Hitachi? They have always made great tools.

I will replace it with a Makita. I have finally come to a decision to sell all my old Hitachi 18v stuff (Recip, Jigsaw, Circ, Impact, grinder, vacuum, blower, 3 lights and a buggered drill) and put the money towards a Makita Drill and Jigsaw. It does mean more tools shopping... hopefully I can handle that.

It looks like just the switch is fried, but I will never get around to replacing it. She was a good drill, taken a heap of abuse. I can't count how many times she has fallen off scaffolding or a roof, etc onto concrete and I have cringed as she bounced along, but she always kept going... until now.

Hopefully I can get through ok. New tools are always a struggle for me. I just hate having to decide on whether to get the grunty one, or the really grunty one. Tough times ahead. I haven't even finished putting together my last Makita haul. Oh well...
