I’ve seen those types of contractors, too, that essentially toss loose power tools in to the backs of their trucks and ride them there until one day they don’t work. May LJs (rightfully) moan the lack of staying power with today’s hand held power tools… Well, there are contractors that have picked that up as well and treat their tools accordingly: they’re not meant to last, hence disposable.

I don’t get the part of neglecting them so they break down even sooner, but meh! To each his own.
