I have used many but my vote is for Hilti. This is the Cadillac of them all. My Dewalt grinder is made in China. The other day I was grinding and it looked like the other wheel was wobbling. I stopped and checked and everthing was tight . Soooooo maybe the bearings are shot already. I have an old made in USA grinder that takes over two minutes to stop spinning after shut off. I tried to sell it at a consignment shop but they had alot of other grinders and lucky for me it did not sell. I think it will be the DeWalts replacement .Paid five bucks for it at a cheerleaders fund raiser sale. Paid good money for the Chinese DeWalt too. Sorry gettin' off topic here. But who knows what other DeWalt is imported from commies.

Hey Doc.

I did some research and found that the new Hilti power tools are made in (you guessed it) China.

I have a Milwaukee Magnum hammer drill that is about 20 years old and has drilled literally thousands of holes in concrete, cmus and stone over the years however the new ones are chinese also.

We need to change the laws to make American companies able to compete with other companies in manufacturing.

Are you sure about that? Hilti is the top of the line in drills/hammer drills. Hilti's use to be made in Germany. The Milwaukee that I have is made in Eastern Europe......5 years old now. The Bosch is a good drill, only problem is that the chuck is an SDS bit, no keyed drill chuck that should be standard.

I thought Hilti was Swiss, but it turns out that it was founded and is still headquartered in Liechtenstein. I'd be very surprised if anybody on this forum could name another product from that country (and if they say beer, they have to name the brand because every European country makes beer).

All my Hilti tools were made in Liechtenstein. Way too expensive for me to buy new, I figured a used one was better than a new tool from other manufacturers. $60 on ebay for my first drill, still working perfectly.

I was a little embarrassed to resell a Bosch hammer drill (chucked) that I had bought new. It worked as it was supposed to, but the buyer had clearly never experienced SDS. A world of difference.

That is true, but for drilling holes in studs, or aluminum plate I want a real keyed chuck. (I do not do much hammer drilling)
