Hitachi is one of those brands that tends to be eclipsed by the bigger pro tool names, and I have never understood why. Their tools are well made, and sometimes even ahead of the curve in terms of design and innovation.
Right now at Woot, there’s a decent sale on two Hitachi 12V lithium-ion cordless tool combo kits – a right angle impact driver, and a drill plus rotary tool combo kit.
Shipping is $5 per order, and the deals are valid thru 9/19/13 unless supplies run out sooner. In case you haven’t heard of Woot before, they’re an Amazon-owned company. Customer service is great, shipping can be slow.
12V Right Angle Impact Driver
This RA impact driver is somewhat puny on paper (265 in-lbs max torque), but makes up for this by having a very low-profile head, compact size, and low weight. It comes with (2) 1.5Ah li-ion batteries, a charger, and hard case.

With this kit, it’s like you’re paying for the cordless rotary tool and accessory set and getting the drill/driver as an added bonus.
