Corded Performance with Cordless Convenience: Hilti TE 2-A 24-Volt Electropneumatic Hammer Drill is Built to Last
TULSA, (Okla.) - April 2, 2004 - The cordless, hard-working Hilti TE 2-A 24-volt Electropneumatic Hammer Drill, a complement to the 36-volt TE 6-A Rotary Hammer, provides contractors with more drilling performance, drilling capacity and a longer lifetime than many battery drills. Whether you're rotary hammer drilling, straight drilling or setting screws, the TE 2-A will help boost your performance when working in concrete, brick and masonry. TE 2-A Drills More Holes Per Charge Customers will see the most benefit with the TE 2-A when drilling anchor holes in concrete from 3/16 to 3/8 inch, the optimum drilling range of the tool. The TE 2-A also provides ultimate versatility with the capacity for drilling up to 1 inch holes in wood, 3/8 inch in steel and up to 5/8 inch in concrete. And with its innovative gear efficiency, battery and charging technology, the TE 2-A runs longer and more consistently to allow contractors more holes per charge. The TE 2-A is available with two battery options: a 3.0 amp-hour nickel metal hydride (NiMH) or a 2.0 amp-hour nickel cadmium (NiCd). With a 50 percent longer run time, the NiMH battery is the ideal choice for serial applications. The C7/36 Smart Charger(TM) with ACS active cooling and auto refresh, which comes standard with the 3.0 amp-hour NiMH battery, provides the fastest charging time and adds up to 20 percent to battery life.
