What is the Tool life expectancy?

Typically on receiving a quote the manufacturer should tell you the cost of the tool and the life expectancy. The life of the tool is the length of time measured in “shots” before the tool either needs replacing or major repair work done to it.

Based on the manufacturer they will either absorb the cost of repairing or replacing the tool based on them having made a profit already and wanting to keep your business but in some cases you may be forced to pay over some more money.

You seriously need to ask this question to avoid any surprises down the line.
