Limited Warranty

NOTICE TO CUSTOMER: READ CAREFULLY, THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS CONTAIN DISCLAIMERS OF WARRANTIES AND STRICT LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITIES AND REMEDIES.  NO WARRANTY IS TRANSFERRABLE WITHOUT THE EXPRESS PERMISSION OF DRILL KING INTERNATIONAL.

Drill King International LP warrants to the original purchaser that its products are free from defects in material and workmanship for a period of:

Percussion Bits – Two years from the date of purchase.

DTH Hammers – One year from the date of purchase.

WAI Hammers – Six months from the date of purchase.

Claims of defects in material and workmanship are subject to review and physical inspection of the returned product. Failure of the purchaser to provide relevant operational details to assist in the investigation will result in the denial of the claim.  Until resolution, the purchaser must retain and appropriately store the claimed part. Upon request, the claimed part must be sent to Drill King for assessment. Any part or product sent to Drill King must be accompanied with a “Return Authorization Form” issued, in advance, by the Sales Department at Drill King. All return packaging must clearly be marked with the return authorization number. Freight for the return must be pre-paid by the purchaser.  Failure to abide by these instructions will result in refusal to accept the returned product at the Drill King facility.

To begin a Warranty claim, a “Product Evaluation Report” must be fully completed and submitted within the following timeframe or warranty life:

Percussion Bits – Two years from the date of purchase.

DTH Hammers – One year from the date of purchase.

WAI Hammers – Six months from the date of purchase.

The report must be completed and submitted within (14) days of either the time of discovery of defect or when reasonable discovery of defect should have been made. Warranty Claims will only be accepted on products still within their warranty life.
