North American contractors lose an estimated $400 million per year on power tool repair costs. Much of this cost is associated with wear and tear, for which manufacturer warranties offer little or no protection. Independent research found that when repairs are required due to wear and tear, the damage is usually more extensive, incurring extra expenditures in terms of parts, labor, transportation and employee downtime, which results in an increased total cost of power tool fleet ownership.

To counteract this, Hilti is raising industry standards with the launch of Lifetime Service-a comprehensive, simple-to-understand program that offers unparalleled service, major financial benefits and access to the latest technological advancements throughout a tool's lifetime. With Lifetime Service, Hilti stands behind its products and can provide total customer satisfaction to its tool owners and users.

During the initial no cost period (up to 2 years, depending on tool model), your tool will be serviced quickly and reliably with no additional cost to you. During the lifetime repair cost limit, which begins after the no cost period, the tool will have a maximum repair cost of no greater than 30% of the tool's list price. Once the tool is repaired, it receives an additional six months of no cost service. The lifetime manufacturer's warranty covers the tool against manufacturer defects for the life of the tool.

Lifetime Service includes the tool's transportation to and from a Hilti repair center, maintenance service, repair and replacement of all worn out or defective parts, functional testing and adjustment and safety check after any repair.
