Recommended Posts

Hitachi have joined the over 110nm club with the new Hitachi DV18 DBXL with a max torque of 136nm. Thats now Makita followed by Milwaukee gen 2 and now Hitachi....... in the next year or so will we see 140-150.



Come on Dewalt its sometimes cool to be late to the party, but dont turn up when the beers been drunk :)

Wow. That's a pretty sweet machine! But seriously, how much torque do we need? I will be in the market for a new hammer at some point and ,y brushed Dewalt 20v was a powerhouse! I used a 4" hole saw through the base sill, and exterior wall and through vinyl siding. It was a work out but she did it just fine. My brother who is a Milwaukee guy was amazed.

Paper specs sometimes have to be taken with a grain of salt !


Indeed, Case in point, the BL Metabo drill that won our big comparison last year was rated ~ 90Nm, and is every bit as powerful as the Makita / Gen2 FUEL drills.
