HiKOKI Power Tools has a new addition to its cordless power tool range – the DH18DPA Rotary Hammer Drill. Measuring just 231mm from the top of the head to the user’s hand, for anyone needing to drill into masonry, concrete or stone, the DH18DPA Rotary Hammer Drill the tool to reach for.
The DH18DPA is so compact (35% smaller than the corded HiKOKI DH18DBL) and lightweight at just 2.3kg – but its power is ultra-strong. You can expect precise control and high-quality drilling time after time as it has an optimised centre of gravity with most of the weight close to the hands. It has a great auto stop function, so you can drill multiple matching holes in next to no time – the tool records the drill time of each hole, then automatically stops when that time is reached. It’s a time-saving tool too – reduce the rotation speed and impact rate for boring into fragile material, but if you’ve got a need for speed the DH18DPA can drill a whopping 23% faster than a conventional corded model.
Safety is, as always, at the forefront with HiKOKI and the DH18DPA is no exception to the rule. It comes with a Reaction Force Control (RFC) system which prevents operator injury – when the tool is overburdened the built-in controller stops the motor before the tool jerks. An anti-vibration handle also reduces the amount of vibration transferred to the hands, lessening the chances of big problems like bone damage. The DH18DPA is brushless so you can expect this tool to last and last.
“The new DH18DPA Rotary Hammer Drill is another brilliant addition to our power tool range,” says Nick Chan, Marketing Manager for HiKOKI Power Tools UK. “It’s powerful but lightweight and the brushless motor means reduced maintenance and improved efficiency. At HiKOKI we love brushless motors as they not only increase lifespan but it means we can get big performance from a smaller motor. For a compact SDS, the DH18DPA is definitely a force to be reckoned with.”
