Tool warranties are often an underrated asset. Having a good warranty with your tool usually means you're buying from a company that entirely trusts their product will satisfy you - this is a good feeling to carry with you on the job. Most industrial manufacturers include a one year warranty on corded power tools, batteries and chargers, and a three year warranty on cordless tools. Of course, this is only standard - some manufactures offer less and some much more. Hitachi includes a ten year warranty on most of their cordless lithium-ion line.
Power tools are very expensive and when said and done all the tools can add up to a big expense. So when buying a power tool you want to not only make sure you are getting the most for your dollar, but you also want to make sure you are buying the right power tool. You don't want to buy a tool that is pure overkill on power or even worst, underpowered. That's why when you buy a power tool you want to look at the important aspects of the tools and sometimes this can be confusing. One important question to ask yourself is, "What kind of user am I?" Once you find this out choosing the right brand is a lot easier. After you decided what kind of user you are you need to look at some important aspects such as corded vs. cordless, amps and horsepower, return policies and more.
My recommendation is to give serious thought to how external elements might affect your project. And adjusting your project time to a more favorable season…may be a good decision…”JUST DO IT”, may not be the best phrase in this type of endeavor. Getting started on a project at the wrong time might hamper on entirely hinder your efforts and put a negative spin on other projects you might want to personally do.

In some cases strolling inside store of power tools is like taking a young child inside candy store. Having said that, to get the most from the equipment you buy, abide by these guidelines. Do not be blind sided by the brand name or the design of a particular power tool. Make the effort to find out precisely what it has to provide you with.
