We only have one Hilti tool, it is a battery-powered fastener and it just saved us well over 100 man-hours installing unistrut on steel beams, the task was bid using tech screws.
Sweet, now they don't have to pay you since you didn't install the strut as prescribed and they didn't authorize a change!

For that list that you posted, I'd just call a licensed handy man.

Better yet , the time you wasted posting on this thread, you could of watched a half dozen how to replace outdoor lights on you-tube and did it yourself.

Or are you afraid of tools and common sense?

Second that, Makita is a very solid brand, reliable and very well designed. I really have no clue why it isn't popular in the USA

It always was. But other brands just became more popular.

I started the 12V (called 10.8V at the time) Lithium line with Makita. I would have stuck with them if they had better tools available. I switched to Milwaukee because there were so many better tools in the line. If Bosch or Makita had the same offerings, I would have been happy with them as well.

Because you are basically handing them a blank check.

I thought suggesting that a homeowner do his own electrical work was the exact opposite of what this forum is about.

Bids and hours=the same .

If you go slow on bid you loose .
If you go fast on hours you loose .

But we as sparky know this .

If you pay for the material that WE spec by the hour is fine .
If we buy the material and give you a bid The price will always be = to the hourly rate .

The more they charge the better they are .

TRUST ME .
