Hilti has launched its smallest and lightest range of cordless tools to date to help customers reach new levels of productivity, control and accessibility in everyday light-duty drilling and screwdriving work.

Operating on a new 12V battery platform and only weighing around 1kg each, the SF 2-A, SFD 2-A and SID 2-A have been designed for working in tight spaces, dark corners or overhead for prolonged periods. Each tool is well-balanced and ergonomically designed for excellent handling and working comfort. They are also designed with two LEDs in the foot of the tool to illuminate the task in hand.

The 12V range is fitted with Hilti's Lithium Cordless Power Care system which features electronic battery management for extra-long lifetime and a rubberised, impact-resistant battery casing meaning they are built to last.

As with all Hilti battery platforms - including the 22V and 36V - one battery can operate all tools on the same voltage while an LED indicator enables the charge to be checked at the press of a button. In addition, an adapter is available so that each tool can fit users' existing Hilti chargers.

All 12V tools can be purchased through Hilti's Fleet Management programme whereby a fixed monthly charge covers all tool, battery, charger, service and repair costs over three years. For customers who prefer to own their own tools outright Hilti's Lifetime Service gives a complete no-cost period of two years.
