    Hitachi name disappears from NZ in Dec this year, getting a revamp with a great new Asian name!!
    milwaukee, ryobi and aeg are all made by techtronics in china/ hong kong. ive had a good run from ryobi but my milwaukee had bad batteries from day 1 and got replaced twice under warranty.
    de walt is basically a higher grade black and decker. best drill i had was a 36 volt bosch, got 7 years daily use out of it till the trigger system died and it was uneconomic to repair

    Shortest lived tools I've had have been Makita. The oldest are Black and Decker that I bought to be the sacrificial tools for a hard job that wont die. Bought some Ozito over the last few years and they've been really good.

    Moved to Dewalt 20v for most things after having a 12v last for 10+ years.

    Mate is doing up his house in the weekends, goes to the warehouse and buys cheap tools, then goes back the next week with any that broke and gets them replaced, going to save him 1000s but a pain in the arse returning them

    Ive had a great run from makita been in the trade 15years doing 13years residential building and 2 years civil construction that's where tools get a hiding. I feel most tools are similar reliability it's how they get treated matters most, sure there's bad models and design falws, but from my current experience I dont think hilti has an advantage over the Japanese brands, unless your on a lease plan from hilti in a huge construction company it really doesn't work for the little guy as for quility between ozito and Japanese mid market tools there is definitely a quility difference, maybe hilti is better than makita etc but not double better like the price reflects..... Plus parts prices are though the roof.....

    As an ex repair agent, I use to have there battery drills lined up for repair, drove us mad, in the end decided not to do repair work for them. Check the 3 month warranty on your chuck!
    Your just dealing with the local seller, not TTI
    AEG batteries under warranty 6 weeks del, last lot I did
    Boom, cough,cough,cough

    No problems with Ozito. Have DeWalt, Makita, Hitachi AEG etc... All made in China all work fine for renovations. Have to say that I love the DeWalt battery drills have 12 volt for most small jobs and an 18 volt for all the rest. The 12 volt stuff is so light you can use it all day but the impact driver struggles with 100mm 14-10 timber screws

    Go the Ozito I am sure it will be better than hire fees.

    .....so don’t start buying cheap power tools now, the answer is Makita as you already knew.

    took the Ozito back as it didn't have variable speed was just flat tack from the pull of a trigger, as far as i can tell it doesn't have a clutch either that is just asking for a broken wrist.
    ended up going to the toolshed and getting this guy for $299 guy did me wholesale price pretty wrapped 10j of impact has a 3 year trade warranty too cant go wrong at that price....

    What model Ozito did you get? My one I have had a few years has variable speed, and a dial on the trigger so you can set what speed it gets to when fully depressed.

    I used Hilti during my plumbing times, I paid the price for it and could not fault their excellent warranty.
