Hilti has launched the next generation of its award-winning BX 3 battery powered direct-fastening tool, which has been adapted for faster and quieter operations for the interior finishing trades.

The propellant-free cordless tool weighs just 4 kg and is powered by Hilti´s industry-leading 22V batteries, allowing it to fix up to 800 nails into steel, concrete and wood on a single charge. The magazine – which contains 30 nails measuring up to 36mm in length – gives both a visual and audible alert when empty. Its advancements deliver lower recoil and minimal noise, making it fully compliant with HSE guidance.
