Hitachi Power Tools Announces Lifetime HXP Lithium-Ion Tool Warranty

Hitachi Power Tools Announces Lifetime HXP Lithium-Ion Tool Warranty

Lithium-ion technology is changing the face of the power tool industry one battery at a time. There are many advantages to Lithium-ion batteries – the chiefest of which may be their extended life. Now, Hitachi Power Tools (NYSE:HIT) seems to be taking up the technological advantage and putting it all on the line. Today, the company announced its new Lifetime Lithium Ion Tool warranty. Hitachi is offering this exclusive Lifetime warranty to the original purchaser on all of its HXP Lithium Ion cordless tools.

What’s even better about this is that the new Lifetime Lithium Ion tool warranty is retroactive and applies to lithium-ion tools purchased since their initial launch back in August of 2006. Hitachi customers who purchased applicable Cordless lithium ion tools before this Lifetime warranty announcement will automatically be covered and are not required to register or re-register their tools.

Tool packaging will undergo a rolling design change to reflect the new Lifetime Warranty. However in the meantime, existing packaging already produced and available for sale in the retail market may still show the 10-Year Warranty on the box. Regardless of the packaging, revised or not, Hitachi is covering all applicable Lithium Ion tools under the new warranty.

Categories of tools that are currently covered under this Lifetime warranty include:

  • Cordless Lithium Ion Driver Drills
  • Cordless Lithium Ion Hammer Drills
  • Cordless Lithium Ion Impact Drivers
  • Cordless Lithium Ion Impact Wrenches,
  • Cordless Lithium Ion Circular Saws
  • Cordless Lithium Ion Jig Saws
  • Cordless Lithium Ion Reciprocating Saws
  • Cordless Lithium Ion Blowers

Some exceptions for hard-use products do apply, namely Cordless Lithium Ion Grinders, Rotary Hammers and Gas Nailers which are separately covered by Hitachi’s 1-year warranty.

While the new Lifetime Warranty covers tools, the batteries have their own warranty. Hitachi is offering a 2-year HXP Lithium Ion battery warranty to the original purchaser. Like most lithium-ion tools, all HXP Lithium Ion batteries that Hitachi puts in its tools contain circuit protection technology that ensures proper maintenance so they are likely continue to operate at peak levels at all times. Hitachi also offers a 1-year HXP Lithium Ion charger warranty to the original purchaser.
