Although that wrench is ok & we still use a few of them, its not being made anymore & has been superceeded by the new model DTW 281Z which according to the makita website is fit for scaffolding applications & the new brake system on it helps to stop u taking the nuts off tbh really ggod value for money & very reliable

Hilti SIW-22a warranty is best thing about it batteries also covered but not producing 3.ampers anymore only the 5.2 which are 100 a pop but is best in my opinion, makita is also very good I would happily use either makita better for size as slightly smaller but preferential to hilti- don't tell hilti you are a scaffolder as voids warranty is a fact
