Hitachi announced today that they’re following up on their release (earlier this year) of a 10.8V li-ion-powered sub-compact drill/driver with a series of new tools to expand the line: a reciprocating saw, flashlight, and right-angle impact driver. They’ll hit shelves soon in two three-piece kits: one includes the drill/driver and impact driver, the other the drill/driver and recip. Both include the flashlight, two batteries, and a 40-minute charger.

The tools’ specs are as expected:

The CR10DL Micro Reciprocating Saw delivers a no-load speed of 0-2,700 strokes per minute (SPM) and accepts standard recip saw blades. It weighs 2.6 lbs.

The WH10DCL Micro Right Angle Impact Driver spins between 0-2,100 RPM and hammers at 0-3,400 beats per minute to deliver 265 in/lbs of torque.

The UB10DL Micro Flashlight features a 180-degree adjustable head that locks into eight positions. It’s only sold as a bare tool.

Look for these to show up in stores soon, and we’ll follow up with a hands-on down the line.

    Like all tool sets of this type they hand you a flashlight so they can proclaim it as a tool! Don’t misunderstand, I use my DeWalt light a few times a year but wouldn’t you rather see these kits come with something like one more battery?
