Local brick-and-morter, online, or you don't care?

Good idea, I'll check for local dealer, but would prefer to buy on line. I thought I was there at Hilti's site until they asked me for some code.

When it comes to tools, Chris, I much prefer dealing locally. If I have a warranty issue, I take it in and have a new one in-hand the same day.

With online sources and the battery craps out, you may just be SOL for 8-12 weeks. Not worth it, no matter what the price originally was.

Yeah, scratch an X on the ground and tell Al that there are a few batteries buried there.

Yeah, I asked him to take a look at the battery that went south and he bashed it with a shovel and tried to charge it. When that didn't work he bashed it with a shovel again and tried to charge it. Then he said it was beyond repair.

For those new to the Forum that don't know Al...

If you know Al and find these pictures redundant, please move on and talk about health insurance and the real issues we face as American tax payers.
