The Hilti SID 8-A18 has enhanced safety by eliminating the transport and storage of 2-cycle gasoline, required for older gasoline powered auger drills.
The Hilti SID 8-A18 is powered by an industry leading 18 volt Lithium-ion battery that provides outstanding performance and work-per-charge and eliminates the issues of transporting and storing 2- cycle gasoline required by gas powered auger drills.
It features 7/16” hex shank chuck with a lip for easy bit changes while wearing double layer gloves and a LED light to illuminate the work surface in low light conditions. Additionally, Hilti SID 8-A18 has been tested to verify its ability to perform when working near energized lines.
To accompany the new SID 8-A18, Hilti has launched a complete line of new high performance auger bits that have been designed to increase drilling performance in heavy wood. The chrome coating aids in the reduction of friction along the drill bit from the base material, increasing speed and comfort for the operator. Non-metallic retaining straps are included with every tool to help protect from drops.
