Hilti Drill – The Solution for Tough Job Sites

A while back we showed the preview of three new drills from Hilti.  While the preview of the drill did show them off and give you a taste of the drills, it was more about the company behind the drills.  As a recap just in case you missed that awesome article, the two things I covered was their warranty and their fleet program.  While I won’t get into full depth like the other article, it is important to understand these two issues before you know about their drills.  First is the warranty.  Hilti offers a 20-2-1 warranty.  They offer...

Hilti – 3 New Drills Preview

If you have been following us for a while, you know Hilti is one of my favorite brands on the market.  Over the years I have had a chance to use them when I was in construction.  The one thing I can say is they are worth every penny.  Hilti is a little different since they sell directly to the consumer and not the normal path of a distributor.

Bosch Compact Drills – 18V of Power in your Hand

Drills have come a long way over the years.  We have gone from tool-less chucks to cutting the power cord.  Batteries have increased in power and motors have become more efficient over time.  So with that said, it’s only natural that with all the technology, companies would start creating more compact drills for those who need a fair amount of power, but don’t need a ton of power that is offered with the bigger drills.  So here is the complication, they need to create a tough drill, that is compact, but not too small.  The drill has to have...
