We get a lot of emails asking about certain tools, so I thought this might be a great time to revisit a tool we did over 1.5 years ago, the Hilti SID 18-A. A lot of people want to know how it’s holding up, did my original opinion change and so on.
Right off the bat I can tell you my opinion hasn’t changed one bit about this impact driver. I still think this is one of the best impacts on the market. I love the feel, the balance, the power and the features of this tool. One thing that has been huge is the 3 LED lights on the front. Not sure why all manufacturers don’t use this style. In regards to the battery life, while I haven’t timed it, it sure doesn’t seem like it has lost any juice. The tool still seems to be running just as strong today as when we first tried it out. So is it worth the money? I am pretty sure you already know that I am going to say yes. While Hilti can be more expensive than other tools on the market, I have to say it is one of my favorites. Along with Bosch, the Hilti is one of the manufacturers you really don’t hear a lot of people complain about. Pretty much everyone is happy with Hilti tools.
If you like this impact driver, you should see what two tools we have coming up from Hilti.
