$220 on Amazon. There have been some other posts about Lowe's clearing out Hitachi tools to replace with rebranded Metabo HPT but this deal is the best of them. Great tools.

A venture capital firm bought the professional tool line Metabo a few years ago. More recently, they purchased the consumer level Hitachi Power Tools (HPT), but the parent Hitachi company is not letting them use the name so they are changing Hitachi Power Tools to Metabo HPT. That HPT is significant because it signifies consumer level Metabo HPT as opposed to pro level Metabo tools.

This no doubt causes some confusion, confusion that I assume the venture capital firm was shooting for in having people get Metabo HPT confused with Metabo, while keeping the same old same old Hitachi quality.

It is just a name change. In the store the printed signs on the display say "Same tools, new name- that's all."

Worth upgrading from brushed version? I've got two of the older Hitachi impacts and love then.

Hitachi is changing the name of their cordless tool line to Metabo and they are on clearance at Lowe's and also Menards. At Lowe's most of the Hitachi tools and combo kits are on clearance. I am starting a deck project and my drill chuck was always coming loose my Ryobi drill and I hand another of the 4AH batteries die. So I was shopping for something a bit more rugged and came across this deal.

Is it just changing the name or are they going to different batteries and everything?

This. Just from looking at pics of the buttons on the 18v batteries, the Metabo and Hitachi look different, ie not interchangeable.

I guess if you're already invested in Hitachi 18v tools, now's the time to buy the extra tools or batteries before they're obsolete.

Yes a group of American investors bought the power tool line and part of the agreement was to change the company name.

Hatachi is a major hit or miss in my experience. Some tools seem to last a lifetime while others end up breaking way beyond when they should.

I'm not sure if it's just for the NA market, but the quality control from whereever they get some of their tools made seems to be the biggest issue, not the fact that Hatachi is bad at engineering a good product.
