Hitachi becomes Metabo HPT and HiKOKI

The brand Hitachi is a huge corporate conglomerate with power plants, trains, computers and tools was only a small part of the overall company. Now that that’s been sold off the tool division had a limited time to change the name. With the new owners also owning Metabo Tool there seemed to be some good reasons to bring the two together build off each other’s strengths and have one tool brand that made the best grinders, hammer drills, nail guns and much more. However easier said than done when one company is in Japan and another in German, both with strong presence all over the globe. So what’s the result, HiKOKI becomes the name in Europe, Asia and other markets while the same tools get the name Metabo HPT in North America… Huh?

Tool Batteries Are Now 8.0Ah, 12.0Ah & Beyond

Dewalt FlexVolt 12.0Ah

Over the last few weeks we have seen the launch of new battery technology from Metabo and Dewalt which puts new Amp/Hour ratings (used as an 18/20V) at 4.0Ah for slim, 8.0Ah for standard size and 12.0Ah for the large batteries. These launches come only days ahead of Milwaukee’s big 2018 New Product Symposium #NPS18 so we anticipate some news coming from the Red Camp as well. These new batteries are not just a little more runtime however we are seeing real increase of peak watt output!

Dust Extractor Testing – Tool Box Buzz, Pro Tool Reviews, Coptool

2017 hepa vacuums

Towards the end of last year when the OSHA silica rules were going into effect we were getting lots of questions about dust extractors specific to Silica, how they are each viewed under OSHA’s Table 1 standards and of course how each performed head to head. At the time there were no head-to-heads out there on these vacs so the Coptool Team got on the case to put together a basic Vacuum Head-to-Head to help users gain more information.

Since our video first aired several manufacturers have made updates to their products with lower prices and/or included HEPA filters which is awesome news for everyone! Also two of our tool reviewing hero’s Pro Tool Reviews and Tool Box Buzz jumped on the case to do their own vacuum comparisons, with some great testing rigs and pointed out some additional information that we might have glossed over. We really think both of these groups do top notch tool test, Clint’s team at Pro Tool Review is always very detailed and Rob’s Crew are mostly professional contractors with some great insights.  (more…)

Hitachi Power Tools is Now Metabo HPT

Metabo HPT

Yes the rumors are true Hitachi Power Tools is changing their name to Metabo HPT but will remain a totally different tool brand from Metabo with different cordless platform for the near future. Originally we heard the Hitachi Tool brand (purchased by KKR investment first about a year ago) was going to become Koki Holdings as the global conglomerate Hitachi was no longer going to let their name be on the tools. KKR also owns Metabo so from a tool branding stand point this makes a lot of sense, with such a great name you can use. Logistically for tool users and retailers this has a big potential to get messy and confusing with a high likelihood both brands will be tarnished in the short term. Hopefully both Metabo brands will become 1 company in the long  run and they’ll figure out how to combined the good will both brands have build into something pretty powerful. More info below from Hitachi Power Tools directly.  (more…)
