Hilti Cordless Jobsite Fan

The Hilti Cordless Jobsite Fan Provides All Day Runtime to Keep You Cool

Over the last few years, Hilti has expanded their Nuron lineup to include many of their core tools, as well as some impressive newcomers. Now, they’re starting to include more lifestyle and comfort products to make life on the jobsite a little easier. Today, I’ve got my hands on the latest Hilti Nuron Cordless Jobsite Fan to see what it has to offer for our Pros in the field.


  • Brushless motor

Hilti Cordless Jobsite Fan Performance

Hilti Cordless Jobsite Fan
  • Max Air Flow: 650 CFM
  • Air Speed: 10 mph (measured at 5 feet)
  • Runtime: 7 hrs, 43 min. (with B 22-170 battery)
  • Motor Type: Brushless

Blowing Force

As Hilti’s first cordless jobsite fan, I must say they’re coming out of the gate pretty strong. The brushless motor churns out up to 650 CFM, and we clocked a top air speed of 13.8 mph point-blank, and 10 mph from 5 feet away. This level of airflow is perfect for small offices and workshops because it moves enough air to keep you cool without feeling overbearing or disruptive.

Although we didn’t measure an exact decibel reading, I must admit that this fan is exceptionally quiet. Even on full blast, I was able to maintain a normal conversation volume in our office without feeling the need to raise my voice.


Hilti tells us that you can expect all-day runtime with the recommended B 22-170 battery. Our testing yielded a total runtime of 7 hours and 43 minutes on full blast. This is a huge benefit for our Pros out there, especially since this fan does not feature an alternate power source, such as an AC outlet.

As for mounting options, Hilti give you a few to choose from. First, the flat bottom sports a pair of keyholes for wall mounting, as well as four rubber no-mar pads that keep it from sliding. There is also a set of extendable rafter hooks that can rotate 180-degrees, giving you a bit more versatility

Is the Hilti Cordless Jobsite Fan just another “me too” product? Not at all! Its confident performance level and all-day runtime make it a great option for busy Pros who demand the most from their tools. Additionally, the straightforward design is easy to understand and operate, lowering the potential for breakdowns in the field. Is the fanciest fan on the market? Well…no, but it offers plenty of power and airflow to keep you cool on those hot summer days.
