HILTI SFH 18-A CPC HAMMER DRILL/DRIVER AND SF 18-A CPC DRILL/DRIVER
TULSA, Okla. - February 3, 2009 - The power needed for professional hammer drilling, drilling and driving applications fits easily in the hand with the Hilti SFH 18-A CPC Hammer Drill/Driver and the SF 18-A CPC Drill/Driver. Powered by Hilti's exclusive Cordless Power Care (CPC) lithium-ion technology, both tools deliver maximum performance, three speeds, low weight and superior ergonomics. For drilling holes in masonry, stone, wood and metal with a variety of bits, as well as driving screws and lag bolts, the SFH 18-A CPC and SF 18-A CPC are powerful choices.
Made with the professional in mind, these rugged tools are built to outperform and outlast under the toughest jobsite conditions. Featuring all-metal gearing for smooth transfer of power, the tools deliver up to 25 percent more torque and RPM than competitive models. With 750 in/lbs of torque, 2,140 RPM and three speeds, both tools provide industry-leading performance. Plus, the SFH 18-A CPC delivers up to 55 percent more BPM when hammer drilling in masonry, greatly improving productivity. Both tools are well-balanced and provide superior comfort to reduce operator fatigue.
While the tools' combination of power and comfort set them apart, it's Hilti's global leadership in cordless power that takes the tools to a higher level. Hilti's CPC lithium-ion technology delivers more work percentage with up to 100 percent more capacity than NiCd/NiMh batteries of the same weight. This also allows operators to use a lighter battery to improve comfort while still utilizing the required power. Hilti CPC batteries are ready to go quickly, with a very fast initial charge to 75 percent. Plus, stored batteries don't lose their charge, so the tools are always ready to work. LED lights on the batteries indicate the remaining capacity at the touch of a button, so there's no guesswork about the state of the charge.
Just as important as how efficient and effective CPC batteries are is how well they hold up. The SFH 18-A CPC Hammer Drill/Driver and the SF 18-A CPC Drill/Driver are constructed for long-lasting performance in demanding working conditions, and the CPC batteries are just as tough. The ultramide glass-fiber reinforced tool and battery housing helps protect against drops, and the battery cells are designed with electronic monitoring that protects against over-heating, overloading and deep discharge. The tools, batteries and chargers are all covered by Hilti's Lifetime Service, a unique service agreement that includes two years of no-cost coverage. With Hilti Tool Fleet Management, the tools and batteries are covered for three years, including wear and tear.
