Speed & Convenience Hilti's new TE 6-S and TE 6-C provide improved engineering to deliver up to 50% longer life than the previous Hilti TE 5 Rotary Hammer. In addition, the TE 6 Rotary Hammers drill up to 10% faster and last up to three times as long as comparable equipment from other manufacturers. Both TE 6 Rotary Hammers feature Hilti's distinctive "quick release chuck" feature to improve performance and reduce delays at the jobsite by allowing quick changes between ½ in. keyed and keyless chucks. Comfort & Balance Combining industry-leading lightweight design and superior quality, the TE 6 Rotary Hammers offer unparalleled ergonomic excellence.

TE 6-S: The Right Selection for Specialized Drilling The choice for versatility! While the TE 6-S is engineered to provide solid power, it can also drill at full speed with hammering at only 30% of the full impact energy.

TE 6-C: Chisel Function Shapes Winning Results A piece of perfection! Improve productivity and eliminate downtime with the ability to instantly switch from drilling to chiseling mode for light clean-up work on concrete and masonry. The TE 6-C expands any professional's jobsite flexibility by combining powerful hammering action and corrective chiseling in one handy resource. TE 6 Dust Removal System A clean winner! To provide a cleaner, safer jobsite and virtually dust-free drilling, the new TE 6 Dust Removal System (DRS) enhances the performance and versatility of both TE 6 Rotary Hammers. With its self-contained, modular design, the TE 6 DRS is lightweight, compact and convenient. Adding to its economical, efficient design, the TE 6 DRS features a reusable dust filter and telescopic tube with integrated depth gauge.
