Original Press Release:

Taking Performance and Comfort to a New Level


TULSA, (Okla.) - September 17, 2003 - The first in a growing line of cutting tool's for the professional user, Hilti announces the release of its newest innovation - the WSR 900-PE Reciprocating Saw.

Performance Depends on a Smart Tool

Satisfying the need for performance, durability and handling, the Hilti WSR 900-PE Reciprocating Saw incorporates a "smart" power system. The Smart Power System combines efficient gearing and a load management sensor to continually monitor blade speed when under load. This means no more stalling while in the middle of a cut. And regardless of the base material - from metal to PVC - the WSR 900-PE yields up to 20 percent less vibration, allowing operators to make smooth, even cuts with reduced fatigue.

Smart Design Means Increased Productivity

Through extensive field testing and observational research, Hilti found that users consider the ability to comfortably work in awkward cutting positions a top priority - a feature seriously lacking in the current reciprocating saw market. Using customer feedback, Hilti developed a large D handle with a multifunctional grip which allows the user to change their hand position easily to maximize cutting efficiency.

With its six speed stroke rate regulator for optimizing cutting in different base materials and the vertical motor mount that evenly distributes the tool's weight (7.1 pounds), the WSR 900-PE makes cutting jobs easier than ever before.

Used for almost any application involving cutting, general contractors, electricians, plumbers, steel fabricators and facility maintenance professionals will find working with a smart tool like the WSR 900-PE can help increase their efficiency.

Safety Features Offer Added Protection

The WSR 900-PE comes standard with an interlock switch which minimizes the risk of unintentional engagement. Additionally, the 15-foot power cord is recessed to reduce accidental cord cutting for increased worker safety.

Two Models to Choose From

The WSR 900 is available in two models - WSR 900 and WSR 900-PE - to suit various needs. Both models feature a six-speed adjustment control for optimal stroke speed (0-2700 SPM) and a seven-position shoe that features an open face design for better visibility of cutting lines and improved accuracy.

Hilti stands behind the WSR 900 and WSR 900-PE with a One Year Full Service Program, which includes shipping, maintenance service, repair and replacement of all worn or defective parts, functional testing and adjustment and safety check after any repair.*

Hilti offers a full line of high quality blades for use in wood and metal with the WSR 900 and WSR 900-PE. Precision designed and manufactured, Hilti saw blades come in 15 different styles ranging from 4" to 12" for a variety of applications.
