Every Hitachi cordless power tool is designed to the highest standards and is rigorously tested for both performance and durability.

Categories of tools that are currently covered under this Lifetime warranty include Cordless Lithium Ion Driver Drills, Cordless Lithium Ion Hammer Drills, Cordless Lithium Ion Impact Drivers, Cordless Lithium Ion Impact Wrenches, Cordless Lithium Ion Circular Saws, Cordless Lithium Ion Jig Saws, Cordless Lithium Ion Reciprocating Saws and Cordless Lithium Ion Blowers.
Some exceptions do apply; Cordless Lithium Ion Grinders, Cordless Lithium Ion Rotary Hammers and Cordless Lithium Ion Gas Nailers are covered by Hitachi’s 1-year warranty.
Hitachi is proud to offer an exceptional 2-year HXP Lithium Ion battery warranty to the original purchaser. All HXP Lithium Ion batteries that power Hitachi Lithium Ion tools contain circuit protection technology that ensures proper maintenance so they will continue to operate at peak levels at all times.
