Hilti SFE 2-A12 Multi-head Drill Driver

Hilti Installation Drill Driver Reaches Into Tight Quarters

You’ve seen Bosch’s FlexiClick, and you’ve seen Milwaukee’s 4-in-1 Installation Driver. But now, Hilti joins in the fun with their first 12V Multi-head Drill Driver, a tool designed to tackle the most demanding and difficult access applications. The versatile Hilti SFE 2-A12 will save you time, and dare we say, a fair amount of headaches when it comes to drilling and driving into tight corners and hard-to-reach places where standard drivers struggle.

Drill and Drive Comfortably

Comfortability and versatility sum up the Hilti SFE 2-A12 Multi-head drill driver. It operates on the brand’s 12V battery platform, keeping it light and compact. Despite its size, the brushless motor still cranks out up to 1600 RPM, with up to 301 in-lbs of maximum torque.

Hilti SFE 2-A12

The Hilti SFE 2-12A comes with 4 attachments, all designed to work together to provide unfettered access to work in typically hard-to-reach areas and corners. Ideal for installation applications, it comes with a 1/4″ offset chuck, 1/2″ keyless metal chuck, 1/4″ hex chuck, and right angle adapter.

The Hilti Multi-Head Drill Driver features two LED worklights, letting you see what you’re doing in dim conditions. A magnetic bit holder keeps your most-used bits close at hand.

Hilti designed the SFE 2-A12 to be able to let you apply the right amount of speed and torque to your work. It features a 15-step clutch, as well as High and Low gearing. In Low gear, the tool delivers up to 400 RPM while High gear provides up to 1600 RPM.

Further, the Hilti Multi-Head Drill Driver comes fully enabled for use in the Hilti Tool Fleet Management system.

Pricing and Availability

You can buy the Hilti SFE 2-A12 Multi-Head Drill Driver direct from the Hilti website or from an authorized dealer. If you’re familiar with the brand’s a la carte purchasing system, it won’t come as a surprise that you can customize your order. As a point of reference, however, you can pick up the tool, two 4.0Ah batteries, and a charger for $342.

And, as always, the drill comes with Hilti’s unique warranty. It covers the repair or replacement of defective parts for up to 20 years and no-cost repair (including wear and tear) for up to 2 years. Hilti also guarantees a one-day turnaround on repairs.
