Hilti AG 500-A18 Cordless Cut-Off Tool

Hilti AG 500-A18 application

The Hilti AG 500-A18 Cordless Cut-Off Tool is expanding Hilti’s line of powerful cordless tools. The new metal cut-off tool matches the performance and productivity of the corded cut-off tools on the market. The increased performance is due to 5.2 Amp Li-Ion battery and improved electronics, delivering more efficiency and power during cut-off or grinding applications.


The Hilti AG 500-A18 features a brushless motor for more torque and less weight. The new cut-off tool motor claims to have up to three times longer life. Additionally, it features a keyless quick-change flange. For safety purposes the cordless cut-off tool is equipped with an electronic brake that stops the disc within one second plus an active torque control for added user protection.


“Angle grinders were once considered the mark that says “we know we’ve arrived” when it comes to cordless tools. While several brands have successfully introduced these tools, this third generation cut-off tool coming out from Hilti is simply on another level. I’d expect the Hilti AG 500-A18 Cut-Off Tool to immediately race to the front of the group in performance.”
