Manufacturer: Hitachi

Even before Hitachi changed its name to Metabo HPT our Hitachi tool reviews covered nearly everything. From the Metabo-inspired Hitachi dust extractor to the redesigned Hitachi 18V brushless reciprocating saw, the company has been on a roll. Of particular note, the new Hitachi MultiVolt battery looks to bring with it some incredible advantages. It should improve both new and existing Hitachi tools. Well known for products like their Hitachi NR83A5 pneumatic framing nailer, the company isn’t stopping with air tools. The Hitachi cordless framing nailer broke new ground and provides pneumatic-like consistency to the job.

With a nifty color scheme and futuristic styling, the Hitachi NT65MA3 2 1/2-Inch 15 Gauge Finish Nailer has the good looks to back up its strong performance and fancy features.

Hitachi C7SB2 Circular Saw cutting

Hitachi C7SB2 Circular Saw Review

The Hitachi C7SB2 7-1/4 inch 15 amp circular saw is a workhorse product which can be found for a very reasonable price if you look hard enough. Its clean lines, comfortable feel, and powerful motor make it a decent saw for cutting, but clumsy depth and bevel adjustments give it at least some areas of improvement. This tool will do well in any handyman’s kit and some professionals may even find its lightweight styling is worth a second look.
