In the world of impact drivers, a two-anvil system has been the standard for years. Hitachi is challenging that approach with a new brushless impact driver that features a third anvil. According to Hitachi, the triple hammer action of the WH18DBDL2 means higher torque and faster screwing speed than its competitors: It has a torque rating of 1,832 in. lb., a max no-load speed of 0–2,900 rpm, and max impact rate of 0–4,000 bpm. Other specs include a ¼-inch hex drive, LED light, variable speed trigger, four mode settings, on-tool battery indicator and a weight of 2.9 pounds. The tool has a lifetime warranty (2 years, battery; 1 year, charger). Price: $399 (kit includes rapid charger, two 18V compact 3.0-Ah batteries, and storage case).
