Keep an eye out when buying used (and even new!) equipment to make sure the nameplate is intact and hasn’t been altered in any way. We’ve helped a few customers deal with serial numbers cut or scratched out of nameplates. The serial number is the easiest way to confirm age and ownership of a Leister tool. Without a serial number, the manufacturer’s warranty is unusable. You could even be purchasing a stolen piece of equipment. Don’t get caught! Check before you buy.
The serial number has been cut out of the nameplate on this tool and a poor attempt has been made to cover the resulting gap with black marker. This tool was purchased brand new from an unauthorized distributor. The equipment was not electrically certified for use in Canada and had not been modified to be compliant with the Canadian Electrical Code. The tool carries no warranty as a result.
