The Hitachi 3/8-Inch Right Angle Drill is built with a powerful 4.6 Amp motor and comes with a dial-in variable speed control, allowing you to maintain your selected speed from 500 to 2,300 RPM under load. The right angle design and low profile, 3-1/4-inch head of this drill allow you to easily reach tight corners and odd angles, making this versatile tool especially suited for plumbing and electrical applications.

Weighing only 3-3/10 pounds, this drill is lightweight and compact for increased comfort and ease of use, while the small grip circumference provides increased maneuverability. The slide switch with lock-on trigger feature offers more comfortable continuous operation, and the removable side handle improves operability and control. The contractor-grade cast-aluminum gear housing is highly durable and efficiently dissipates heat. The drill has a maximum torque of 106-1/5 inch-pounds, with a 7/8-inch wood capacity and a 3/8-inch steel capacity. It includes a heavy-duty industrial 3/8-inch chuck and chuck key and is backed by a 5-year limited warranty extended to the original purchaser.

The trigger cannot be any better for tight space between your fingers

I waited a long time to purchase a 90 degrees drill that I won’t be using often but when I need it there is no substitute.

Powerful drill in a great configuration

I recently added the Hitachi D10YB right angle drill to my toolbox in preparation for a project rebuilding a camper. I’ve been using it heavily for two days, and have the following observations:

So good I bought two

This drill is excellent, it is variable speed you just set it at the speed you want from 1 to 5 and pull the trigger and it works fantastic

Great product and definitely worth the price paid. I have tried just about all of the right angle drills and this one is by far the best one so far. My only gripe is the on-off switch but you get used to it. It is very sensitive and if you hit it just right it will turn off.

Exactly what I wanted!

Bought for a friend(I use the Bosch 1132vsr rt angle). I tried it before I gave it to him!!!!Love the side handle-helps put some pressure on the work!!!!Paddle switch much easier to manipulate than the bosch 1132’s switch!!!!Speed dial is great for setting the exact speed needed for drilling!!!!

Well built but lacks mechanical low speed.

This appeared to be a quality product. It does have an electronic speed control, and that is the biggest con if you intend to use it for boring multiple holes. Imagine drilliing through a series of wall studs. In order to obtain enough power, the speed has to be set high. It is powerful but it will take an auger bit too fast through the material, bind, or break the bit. For the price I think a gear driven 2 speed unit more appropriate.

Not enough power for 1 inch auger bit

I’m wiring a new cabin and needed something to drill 1 inch holes through studs and joist. I wanted low speed high torque for use with self feed auger bit but this tool would not drill unless it was set to high speed. It worked using high speed but you better hold on as you break through the board, this is a real knuckle buster! I switched to a 1 inch spade bit and that was much better, I could lower speed and it was smooth and less dangerous. Also tried a hole saw but that takes too much time. I did not have any problem with the switch as some complain about, that works fine for me. Bottom line though is this lacks torque at slow speed with bigger self feed bits, but I think that’s typical of most 3/8 drills.

Excellent value for money arrived early great job

Excellent drill & I like the switch!

Excellent quality throughout. Others have complained about the switch, but I find it very easy to use. The trigger slides easily into the “on’ position, and a simple squeeze pops the catch and it slides back into the off position. For me, this makes a lot more sense than a trigger switch when working in tight quarters.
