Hitachi WH18DBDL2 Triple Hammer Impact Driver

Introducing the Hitachi Triple Hammer WH18DBDL2 Impact Driver

Last week Hitachi announced the release of the WH18DBDL2 Triple Hammer Impact Driver. This new offering from Hitachi brings true innovation to driver technology. The third anvil delivers tremendous performance, while a slim 3.0Ah battery, and rapid charger improves efficiency of the Hitachi 18V platform. We here at Tool Box Buzz are happy to be introducing the Hitachi triple hammer WH18DBDL2 impact driver.



Third Anvil for MORE Torque and BPM

The Hitachi WH18DBDL2 Triple Hammer Impact Driver delivers 1832 in/lbs of torque and 4,000 max beats per minute. The third anvil, giving the WH18DBDL2 the namesake “Triple Hammer” not only delivers the performance listed above, but also reduces vibration.

The tool also features four speed settings with a no load speed from 0 to 2,900RPM and an impact rate from 0-4,000 BPM. Simply put Hitachi added the third anvil for more torque and BPM!


Compact 3.0Ah Battery

In addition to the “Triple Hammer” performance the tool weighs just 2.9lbs with space saving slim 3.0Ah batteries. These batteries have the same capacity as the of the standard (BSL1830) 3.0Ah but 3/4″ shorter in height and 0.6lbs lighter.

The size and weight savings of the compact 3.0Ah battery coupled with top of the line torque and BPMs of the WH18DBDL2 makes this driver a force to be reckoned with. The battery is also equipped with Hitachi’s Multiplex Protection Circuit to extend the life of the battery.



18V Rapid Smart Charger

This 18V Rapid Smart Charger features a fan that cools the battery during charging to prevent overheating. This technology can replenish an 18V 5.0Ah battery in 32 minutes and a 18V 6.0Ah battery in 38 minutes. The fast charging time is extremely impressive compared to the field, which makes this platform a formidable option for the most demanding tasks even without considering the WH18DBDL2.
