    I bought one and it kept jamming. Took it back to tool shop and bought another one to use while it was being fixed. Makita replaced the original, and the 'new one' screwed itself to the wall on the first day and was shooting screws in at all angles, so after lobbing across the room it was boxed up and returned that one. The replacement was no better so demanded a refund and bought a Hilti ( which was what I wanted to get originally but had thought it was a bit pricey and bought the Makita piece of shit instead.) Never again. IMO, the only good power tool is a red one with an H on it. End of.

    if you have never tried hilti but have heard they are good, then get a demo or try someones. the difference to other market gun is noticed straight away. they are the best quality by a mile and a third

    The new 21.6 Volt SF5000 A22 including SMD 57 collated attachment is currently 394 + Vat direct from Hilti. Like Ian says, ring your local rep and ask for a demo. They will come round in a VW Transporter full of tool porn for you to play with. You'll get 2 yrs warranty straight off and lifetime warranty on some things. The beauty of the Hilti is that the collated attachment is removed so easily to catch screws that might need that extra turn, like in corners and tight places.

    Anyone used the concept autofeed ?

    we used to sell loads of em but as all things power tool sales have dried up at the moment - it's animpact driver with auto feed attachment so two tools in one, i think they were talking about bringing out li ion model which would take screws upto 70 mm will have to check.
