Highlighted Features:

[su_list icon=”icon: arrow-right” icon_color=”#329d40″]
  • I pretty much love it for being cordless and allowing me to work from all angles.
  • The anti-vibration feature is a great help for better accuracy in my work.
  • Another big helps is the LED light that gives my project good illumination.
  • The accessories are also a big help in the variety they provide.



Just like the Dremel 7700[2], this device operates on battery power and without a cord. However, in a Hitachi GP10DL vs Dremel 7700 comparison, I would side with the Hitachi.
This is because of its compact and lightweight design. This maximizes the advantage of being cordless, allowing for this product to be used in a variety of situations.

Variable Speed

One of the factors that pop up a lot in Hitachi rotary tool reviews is the fact that they have a wide range of speeds. This particular model has a minimum of around 5,000 RPM, while it maxes out at 35,000 RPM.
That’s an impressive range and should allows me to do a variety of work ranging from grinding to cutting.

Great Accessories

All of this is possible thanks to the many tools available to this product. It comes with  over 40 accessories and a solid black carrying case.
There are cutting bits and more in the set. However, the real jewel is the case. Thanks to it,I can bring this device anywhere.

LED Light

Another nice touch with this device is its LED light. I have worked in some places where a bit of light could of great use. This is where the light comes in.
If I needed it, I just turned it on. Yes, it ate up the charge faster, but seeing what you are doing is pretty important.


Another important thing about this product is the anti-vibration feature. One of the problems with working with rotary tools is the powerful motors vibrate a lot and it affects how people use it.
With this tool, I barely felt anything. This allowed me to be more accurate in work and I think a lot of people would be pleased about that fact.
