Original Press Release:
Hitachi Power Tools Announces the KC18DB 18 Volt Combo Kit with a Tool for Every Job!
Norcross, Georgia - Now you can own a tool for every job in Hitachi's new 18 volt cordless combo kit, the KC18DB. Included in this power pack is the top of the lineup from Hitachi's outstanding 1 8 volt cordless tools: a DS18DVB cordless driver drill, C6DC 6-1/2" circular saw, a cordless torchlight, 2 rechargeable nickel cadmium batteries, and a UC24YFA battery charger. All of this power comes custom bundled in a specially designed case.
To get things spinning in the right direction...
When in need of a cordless driver drill for intense torque or high speed applications, the Hitachi DS18DVB, 18 volt 1/2" cordless driver drill with variable 2 speed transmission is the tool of choice from this kit. The job is sure to get done right thanks to its electronic feedback power control which increases power when it becomes harder for the bit to spin.
The DS18DVB is sure to get high marks from its professional user due to its:
Precise 22-stage slipclutch to allow the user to easily adjust the amount of torque needed for different applications.
Electric brake which allows the user to stop on a dime.
Super soft-grip handle and conveniently located trigger switch to significantly reduce user fatigue.
Lanyard to prevent the tool from being dropped.
In order to make the cut
The Hitachi C6DC cordless circular saw included in this kit has the power and capacity to get the job done. Operating at a speed of up to 3,500 RPM, the C6DC is capable of cutting 2X framing stock at a 45-degree bevel in a single pass. The nickel plated base of the saw won't mar the wood surface, and an industry unique battery operated light illuminates the cutting line.
Additionally, the C 6DD is built for exceptional durability. Its bevel indicators are solidly attached to the base with rivets, and its base and bevel indicator are one die cast aluminum piece.
It won't take long
Both the DS18DVB driver drill and the C6DC circular saw are powered by the included interchangeable high capacity 2.0 AMP nickel-cadmium batteries which amazingly require only one hour to charge.
Take your pick
Hitachi Power Tools believes in giving its customers choices. That is why they are offering a 24-volt Cordless Combo option, which includes the CR24DV Reciprocating Saw and the C'7D Circular Saw.
