Right to Repair
Update: August 14,  2018

Tool Warranty: 
Most German tool companies have a similar warranty. They will replace any tool showing a defect in materials or workmanship. They will not replace tools showing normal wear and tear. They will not replace rusted, damaged, or abused tools. The tool user is required to select the correct tool and method for the job. When done, the tool should be cleaned and inspected and returned to a safe storage area. The tool is delivered to you ready to perform the work at hand.  It is your responsibility to take care of your tools, know your own strength, and use the right tool for the job.
Warranty Period
Warranty is for 1 year from the date of purchase by the original purchaser.
General Conditions
All air operated tools sold by Samstag Sales in the US market will have a limited 6 months warranty. Use of any tool in a tool rental program voids all warranty. Use of tools in a production line is considered excess use and voids the warranty unless the tool is specifically sold for production line use. Use of tools in a race application is considered tool abuse and will void any warranty. Cutting tools like files, drill bits, hacksaw blades, screw extractors, have a new defective warranty only. They are considered consumable items.

Nothing is more important than your personal safety. If you don't feel comfortable doing a repair job, it's best to visit a dealer or reputable independent shop for the repair. If you do decide to perform the work yourself, be sure to have the tools, service manual, and a suitable place to do the work before you begin.
Be sure you know your own strength, have a good understanding of the repair procedure, and use the right tool for the job. For general shop safety be sure to read your service manual. If you don't have a manual, we recommend the Robert Bentley manuals. 


Right to Repair
It's your car. You bought it. Since the invention of the car, the car owner has been able to repair their own car or take it to an independent repair shop. But modern day cars are impossible to repair without the proper tools, equipment, and knowledge. 

It's a complicated subject but we encourage you to stay informed. Please research the Right to Repair Legislation, click on the logo to your left.
