Direct Fastening Goes Digital – Hilti Powder-Actuated Tool DX 5

Meet the next generation of Hilti powder-actuated tools with proven DX direct fastening technology. The new DX 5 features a built-in digital service indicator screen and Bluetooth technology. Now you can know in advance when it’s time to clean or service your DX 5 so the tool is always ready for your jobsite challenges.

The digital indicator screen on the tool notifies you when it is time for cleaning or service. And with built-in Bluetooth technology, you can pair the DX 5 with the Hilti Connect app to see specific tool usage and performance data, last synced location of the tool, order fasteners and cartridges, schedule service, and view manuals and how-to videos. 

The DX 5 is built to last. Rely on it for a wide range of fastening applications on high strength steel and concrete base materials. As a fully automatic tool, it speeds up the job of fastening wood, metal track, electrical conduits or even insulation boards and grating plates.

The DX 5 is also backed by Hilti’s 20/2/1 year warranty – 20 years of repair or replacement of defective parts; 2 years no cost repair including wear and tear; and a guaranteed 1-day turn-around on repairs* – so you can be sure it will be ready to go to work when you are.
