HiKOKI extends warranty on cordless ranges

The HiKOKI Hi5 warranty scheme covers cordless brushless tools in its powerful 18V and 36V ranges. To secure the Hi5 warranty all you have to do is register the cordless brushless power tools for an extra two years over the already automatic three years from the Heavy Duty three-year warranty. Batteries 5.0Ah and over are covered, as well as Multi-Volt batteries.

Marketing manager Nick Chan said: “We are delighted to announce this industry leading Hi5 Warranty which provides power tool users with the ultimate peace of mind.

“Thanks to over 70 years of power tool engineering experience and by using the highest manufacturing standards, HiKOKI is able to offer this extra two years on top of the automatic three-year warranty. We really are putting down a marker for customer service and convenience.”

With 36 Volts (V) the BSL36A18 Multi Volt battery packs have a capacity of 2.5 Ampere-hours (Ah), and 5.0Ah with 18V. HiKOKI also offers a BSL36B18 with a capacity of 4.0Ah and 8.0Ah with 18V. That means that the 36V battery packs have a capacity of more than 1000 Watts.

The 36V battery packs have more power than the similar sized 18V battery packs but as the battery packs’ dimensions and weight remain almost the same, the Multi Volt battery packs can be used with a wide range of 18V devices.

The Hi5 Warranty announcement is another new initiative from the company formerly known as Hitachi Power Tools, following its rebrand to HiKOKI. It recently announced an automatic three-year warranty which applies to all tools, excluding batteries less than 4Ah, gas nailers and hire tools.

Terms and conditions apply and online registration is required within four weeks of purchase via the HiKOKI Power Tools UK website.
