    Was i a trade counter and they had these out on display, they are so cheap and lightweight it is unbeleiveable. It looks like real diy store own brand stuff. I cant believe our hosts had them on originally for 399.

    too me they looked like they wouldnt last five minutes. I havent got a cordless saw but I have a bosch 14.4v jigsaw and planer and they take a real beating some days, the hitachi looked like it was really cheaply made.

    i use a 24v hilti circular saw on every thing apart from the stuff that needs to be really chip free. It fits the festool guide which is a bonus

    ive got the 18v hitachi 3.0ah l-ion cordless combi drill and its got so much power for an 18v cordless with auger bits,hss, hole saws etc etc. well worth the money.

    don't know about the saw was hoping to get a naked one sometime but if its **** i'll stcik to my 110 makita

    ive got the 18v hitachi lithion l-ion drill.
    keep meaning to send it back but it would leave me without a drill.the problem with mine is the chuck,when im drilling locks out with a spade bit,the the chuck tightns up that much i have to get the adjustable grips on it.also when im using hss bits they slip in he chuck .
    bosch or makita for me next
