Obligation signs
The tool works on the well-proven piston principle and
is therefore not related to high-velocity tools. The piston principle provides an optimum of working and fastening safety. The tool works with cartridges of 6.8/11
caliber.
The piston is returned to the starting position and the
cartridges are fed to the firing chamber automatically
by gas pressure from the fired cartridge. This permits
fastenings to be made very quickly and economically
with nails and threaded studs.
As with all powder-actuated tools, the tool, magazine,
fastener program and cartridge program form a “technical unit”. This means that optimal fastening with this
system can only be assured if the fasteners and cartridges are specially manufactured for it, or products of
equivalent quality, are used. The fastening and application recommendations given by Hilti are only applicable
if these conditions are observed.
The tool features 5-way safety – for the safety of the
operator and bystanders.

 The numbers refer to the illustrations. The illustrations can be found on the fold-out cover pages. Keep
these pages open while you read the operating instructions.
In these operating instructions, the designation “the
tool” always refers to the DX 462 powder-actuated tool.
Location of identification data on the tool
The type designation and the serial number are printed
on the type plate on the tool. Make a note of this information in your operating instructions and always refer
to it when making an enquiry to your Hilti representative or service department.
Type:
DX462
Serial no.:
The energy from the propellant charge is transferred to
a piston, the accelerated mass of which drives the fastener into the base material. As approximately 95 % of
the kinetic energy is absorbed by the piston, the fastener
is driven into the base material at much reduced velocity (less than 100 m/sec.) in a controlled manner. The
driving process ends when the piston reaches the end
of its travel. This makes dangerous through-shots virtually impossible when the tool is used correctly.
The drop-firing safety device 2 is the result of coupling
the firing mechanism with the cocking movement. This
prevents the Hilti DX tool from firing when it is dropped
onto a hard surface, no matter at which angle the impact
occurs.
The trigger safety device 3 ensures that the cartridge
cannot be fired simply by pulling the trigger only. The
tool can be fired only when pressed against the work
surface.
The contact pressure safety device 4 requires the tool
to be pressed against the work surface with a signifi19

In addition, all Hilti DX tools are equipped with an unintentional firing safety device 5 . This prevents the tool
from firing if the trigger is pulled and the tool then pressed
against the work surface. The tool can be fired only when
it is first pressed (1.) against the work surface correctly and the trigger then pulled (2.).

8. Care and maintenance
When this type of tool is used under normal operating
conditions, dirt and residues build up inside the tool
and functionally relevant parts are also subject to wear.
Regular inspections and maintenance are thus essential in order to ensure reliable operation. We recommend that the tool is cleaned and the piston and piston
brake are checked at least weekly when the tool is subjected to intensive use, and at the latest after driving
10,000 fasteners.
8.1 Care of the tool
The outer casing of the tool is manufactured from
impact-resistant plastic. The grip comprises a synthetic
rubber section.
The ventilation slots must be unobstructed and kept
clean at all times. Do not permit foreign objects to enter
the interior of the tool. Use a slightly damp cloth to
clean the outside of the tool at regular intervals. Do not
use a spray or steam-cleaning system for cleaning.
8.2 Maintenance
Check all external parts of the tool for damage at regular intervals and check that all controls operate properly. Do not operate the tool when parts are damaged
or when the controls do not operate properly. If necessary, have the tool repaired at a Hilti service centre.
CAUTION
■ The tool can get hot while operating.
■ You could burn your hands.
■ Do not disassemble the tool while
it is hot. Let the tool cool down.
Servicing the tool
The tool should be serviced if:
1. Cartridges misfire
2. Fastener driving power is inconsistent
3. If you notice that:
● contact pressure increases,
● trigger force increases,
● power regulation is difficult to adjust (stiff),
● the cartridge strip is difficult to remove.
CAUTION while cleaning the tool:
● Never use grease for maintenance/lubrication of tool
parts. This may strongly affect the functionality of the
