Hilti battery benefits
28 February 2023
Having officially launched its Nuron cordless tools platform in the UK last August, Hilti reports keen interest in the products in the range.
Two particular items of focus are the TE 2000-22 battery powered breaker (pictured above) and the DSH 600-22 battery cut-off saw, both of which are claimed to offer the same or better performance than their corded or petrol counterparts, but giving additional benefits in certain applications.
“The DSH 600-22 avoids having to source and handle petrol and so helps increase sustainability,” says Walid Hussain, National Tool Hire Manager (UK) with Hilti (Gt. Britain). “It also means that someone working, say, on the sixth floor of a building doesn’t have to stop and go down to ground level. They also don’t need to waste time mixing oil and fuel.
“The tool also has additional benefits such as a very fast-acting blade brake and it has an automatic water feed capability for wet cutting.”
Walid says that the TE 2000-22 breaker offers similar operational benefits by doing away with trailing cables, transformers and generators.
He adds that hirers can hirers can hire out the tool at a similar rate as the non-cordless equivalent, along with two batteries and a charger whose hire rate compares with the cost that otherwise be paid for fuel or ancillary items.
Such benefits also fit with Hilti’s concept of circularity, as reported earlier on the blog, whereby efficient tool usage is achieved in sustainable ways with minimal waste of resources.
