Hitachi DS18DSAL 18v Cordless DrillThe Hitachi DS18DSAL 18v cordless drill is a solid compact li-ion model that we give an 8.8 overall rating. We rated this tool as our #1 best cordless drill for the money. Why do we feel this way? Well for starters it has plenty of power with 460 in-lbs of torque although it’s not quite up to par with the top models. It also is really lightweight at just 3.5 pounds. Add in a best-in-class warranty of 10 years for the tool and 2 years on the batteries. Then top that off with a flashlight as part of the kit and a price tag of around $140. That all adds up to a great value.

We highly recommend the DS18DSAL cordless drill for homeowners and DIYers. Professionals might want to look for a model with more power if job requires lots of heavy duty drilling and/or driving.
