Hitachi is making a splash with their new 18V brushless lithium-ion oscillating multi-tool, the CV18DBLP4.
Like all oscillating multi-tools, this one can cut, scrape, grind or sand just about anything with the appropriate accessory. It is sold as a tool-body only, however it is compatible with any Hitachi 18V slide-type battery and charger system.
This multi-tool is unique to Hitachi due to the two modes of speed. A user can select Standard mode and change the vibration frequency from 1-5 or (6,000-20,000 RPM) by adjusting the variable speed dial as needed or the user can select “auto-mode” and the tool will determine the appropriate level of vibration needed based on the load-essentially lowering vibration, reducing noise and increasing the battery run time.
Other features include a soft start for user safety and constant speed control to maintain the speed under load to ensure maximum power is delivered to the application. The tool-less blade change is designed for quick and easy accessory replacements.
The universal design accepts the majority of accessories that are available on the market. An LED work light illuminates the tip of the accessory-especially convenient for tight and dark work spaces where this tool might be put to work.
The CV18DBLP4 Brushless tool body is covered by Hitachi’s Lifetime Lithium Ion Tool Warranty. Hitachi Lithium Ion batteries (sold separately) are covered by Hitachi’s Two-Year Lithium Ion Battery warranty and battery chargers (sold separately) are covered by Hitachi’s One-Year Charger warranty. It comes with a Bi-Metal Plunge Cut Saw Blade.
