Brushless Motor Technology

This brushless motor has an impressive oscillating speed 20,000 RPMs, which allows this OMT to cut, scrape, grind or sand just about anything with the appropriate accessories. This brushless motor technology also delivers more power to the motor by minimizing unnecessary energy loss through friction and heat. Brushless tools provide longer run time in between charges, increase power and with essentially no maintenance will extend the durability of the tool.

Oscillating Speeds

The CV18DBLP4 has two modes of speed, standard and auto mode. The standard mode has 5 settings from 6,000 RPMs up to 20,000 RPMs. There is a variable speed dial that allows you change the vibration frequency manually. You can also select the “auto-mode” and the tool will determine the level of vibration based on the load. This feature will lower vibration, reduce noise and increase the battery run time.

CV18DBLP4 Features

  • Soft Start Technology
  • Tool-less blade change
  • LED Work Light
  • Low Battery Indicator

Comfort and Convenience of the CV18DBLP4


The CV18DBLP is designed with the user’s comfort as a priority. Ergonomics including a soft grip handle and slim profile body improves comfort and always the user greater control of the tool while is being used in tight places or odd positions.


The CV18DBLP4 is compatible with the Hitachi 18v Lithium Ion slide-type battery and charger platform. The technology in the Lithium Ion chargers provide the batteries with overload and over discharge protection so it will not over heat, extending its overall life.
