    Makita are brilliant for spares as are Hitachi and Dewalt

    It's the fact that they (Hilti) make the choice to withdraw support for equipment, that is well enough made, to far outlast their support program

    That they do some of my colleagues has a tendency to run things over tho. Solves many a problem

    Cool

    I guess the Hilti product developers have seen enough abuse to design for use and not only for brochures.
