Hitachi Power Tools

Designed With The Lastest Technologies

Hitachi Power Tools

In 1980 Hitachi Power Tool U.S.A. was created to market their line of tools in the United States.

They quickly made a name for themselves during the 80's by building on their pneumatic framing nailer and sliding compound miter saw successes.
