Red Crack


Well thats it, you other guys can have your green cool aid, Hilti is like crack to me. One little taste and I'm hooked.
Go big or go home, sick of renting, bought it today, super deal!
I'll try it out tomorrow,add some Dexpan to the holes and say goodbye to a rock!

Re: Red Crack


I like my hilti stuff too....but I don't think I will buy another cordless drill/driver set, the 14.4V is too fragile and the 21.6V is not without its problems.

Re: Red Crack


Most of my power tools are made by Hilti, their warranty is their word and the customer service is great, try getting Makita or Dewalt to deliver a loaner rotary hammer to your house while yours is in for repairs.

Not every dealer will do that. Just like makita and dewalt. you have your good dealers and bad dealers. My makita dealer will give me a loaner until mines fixed but I have never had to upto yet. They repair my tools while I wait.

I'm not waiting for a tool to get repaired. If my Hilti rotary hammer breaks down on a job I call my rep and a loaner is at my house the same day, and he picks up the to drill to be repaired, and delivers it back to my house when it is repaired, and picks up the loaner at the same time. He will also deliver whatever fasteners or bits and blades I need at the same time. I don't know of any Hilti rep that will not deliver that kind of service, my brother lives in Texas and his rep will run stuff to his job if he has a problem.

I don't mind spending 10 mins walking around the shop looking at new tools whilst my tool gets fixed. Our local hilti dealer is crap here. They couldn't even tell me about the hilti foam gun let alone know anything about their power tools. It's nice to find good dealers though. My makita dealer has fixed my drill even being out of warranty for 2 years for free. I ain't had to see them many times though. Even though 90% of my tools are makita. Had very good luck with them so far.

Do you have a Hilti rep, or are you just working with anyone at the counter? I have had mixed experiences when I just walk in to grab something, or if my rep is not available. If he is in, then I get pretty good deals and great service. He will call me if something comes out that I may be interested in, and schedule a demo.

There are only Hilti dealers in very rural areas. There might be a few rental houses that sell Hilti though. If you call 1 800 879 8000 and tell them your geographic area and trade they will give you the local reps name and number and shoot a message to their phone to call you if you ask.

There are Hilti Centers, retail stores run by Hilti, and they should have a courier service. Or, if the area is big enough for a Hilti Center, there should be at least 10 reps running around.
Nice drill by the way.

Re: Red Crack


The Hilti counter staff are useless.....really really useless. If I call my rep he goes out of his way to provide an excellent level of service; walking into the store is like going to Home Depot.
