unsurpassed durability, the power tool collection from Hitachi brings another innovative brand to Sears’
tool department.

 “We’re excited to add Hitachi to the roster of tools available from the Sears Blue Tool Crew,” said
Steve Light, senior vice president tools and hardware for Sears Holdings. “The Sears Blue Tool Crew is
committed to delivering innovative tools at an exceptional value and the addition of Hitachi helps us
deliver on that promise. Hitachi’s innovative designs and durable features, including their lithium-ion
tools backed by a 10-year warranty, are a perfect addition to Sears’ collection of more than 30,000 tools

Hitachi’s high-powered HXP lithium ion battery technology reinvents the way the world uses cordless
power tools. Up to 40 percent lighter than standard Ni-Cad and Ni-Mh batteries with three times the
battery life, the HXP battery is the power behind Hitachi’s 18-volt 1.5Ah Lithium Ion 1/2-inch
Compact Pro Driver Drill. Featuring an 18-volt Lithium Ion slide battery, the Compact Pro Driver Drill
delivers professional power in the most compact, lightweight and ergonomic tool body on the market:
7.7-inches long and only 3.5 pounds.

The HXP battery technology is also featured in Hitachi’s Micro Series, which provides superior results
in a smaller package. Offerings in the Micro Series include the 12-volt Peak 3/8-inch Lithium Ion
Micro Driver Drill and the 3.6-volt Lithium Ion Screwdriver. Hitachi’s lithium ion tools are backed by
a 10-year tool warranty.

Hitachi also offers exceptional cutting power through a variety of saws featuring Hitachi’s adjustable
Laser Marker System, which delivers exact alignment and predictable blade placement for perfect cuts
every time. The 10-inch Compound Miter Saw with Laser Marker is the lightest saw in its class,
offering the ultimate in form and function. The aggressive design is coupled with a powerful 15-Amp
motor, vibration-reducing horizontal handle, and Hitachi’s exclusive laser marker system.
