Professional Tool Reviews for Pros

Manufacturer: Hilti

We almost never do our Hilti tool reviews in-house. That’s because they require Pro handling on the job site. We were able to thoroughly test out the Hilti VC 150-10 XE dust extractor and the Hilti charging radio. For products like the Hilti SF 6H-A22 22V hammer drill driver and the Hilti 22V cordless brushless cut-out tool, however, we brought in the Pros. Hilti is well-known in the construction industry as a concrete professional’s go-to tool company. Hilti tools have an excellent reputation for performance and warranty service. Our Hilti tool reviews take all of that into account and compare that against the competitive tool landscape. Hilti Tool Reviews from Concrete Professionals The Hilti tool reviews below include products which received hands-on reviews from concrete professionals. We also tackle some of the products in-house in the PTR Shop and testing facility. All-in-all we make sure each tool is carefully tested so you know what to expect when you use it in the field.
