Description 2.1 Use of the product as directed The tool is designed for professional use in fastening applications where nails, threaded studs and composite fasteners are driven into concrete, steel and sand-lime block masonry. The tool is for hand-held use only. Modification of the tool is not permissible. The tool may not be used in an explosive or flammable atmosphere unless it has been approved for use under these conditions. To avoid the risk of injury use only genuine Hilti fasteners, cartridges, accessories and spare parts or those of equivalent quality. Observe the information printed in the operating instructions concerning operation, care and maintenance. The tool and its ancillary equipment may present hazards when used incorrectly by untrained personnel or when used not as directed. The tool may be operated, serviced and repaired only by trained personnel. This personnel must be informed of any special hazards that may be encountered. As with all powder-actuated fastening tools, the tool, cartridges and fasteners form a technical unit. This means that trouble-free fastening with this system can be assured only if the Hilti fasteners and cartridges specially manufactured for it, or products of equivalent quality, are used. The fastening and application recommendations given by Hilti apply only when these conditions are observed. For optimum results and maximum reliability we recommend use of Hilti cartridges or products of equivalent quality. 20 The following also applies in EU and EFTA countries: For maximum safety with this tool, the cartridges must comply with the requirements of the applicable C.I.P. tests (source: Comprehensive edition of adopted C.I.P. decisions, Liège, Belgium, 2005) as well as the cartridge tests described at www.hilti.com/cartridgetest. The tool features a 5-way safety system for the safety of the user and all bystanders. 2.2 Piston principle The energy from the propellant charge is transferred to a piston, the accelerated mass of which drives the fastener into the base material. Due to use of this piston principle, the tool is classified as a “low velocity tool”. As approximately 95% of the kinetic energy is absorbed by the piston, the fastener is driven into the base material in a controlled fashion at much reduced velocity (less than 100 m/s). The driving process ends when the piston is stopped at the end of its travel. This makes dangerous through-shots virtually impossible when the tool is used correctly. 2.3 Drop-firing safety device The drop-firing safety device is the result of coupling the firing mechanism with the cocking movement. This prevents the tool from firing when dropped onto a hard surface, no matter at which angle the impact occurs. 2.4 Trigger safety device The trigger safety device prevents the tool firing when only the trigger is pulled. The tool must be pressed against a firm surface before a fastener can be released. 2.5 Contact pressure safety device The tool can be fired only when pressed fully against a firm surface with a force of at least 50 N. 2.6 Unintentional firing safety device The tool is also equipped with an unintentional firing safety device. This prevents the tool from firing if the trigger is first pulled and the tool then pressed against the work surface. The tool can be fired only when it is first pressed correctly against the work surface and the trigger subsequently pulled. 2.7 Range of fasteners available for various applications Fasteners Ordering designation Application X-U High-strength nail for fastening on highstrength steel and concrete in a wide range of applications Standard nail for fastening on concrete Standard nail for efficient fastening on steel Easily removable nail for fastening formwork temporarily on concrete Stainless steel nail for fastening in damp or corrosive surroundings Special fastener for timber structures on concrete Fastener for positioning formwork X-C X-S X-CT X-CR X-CP / X-CF X-FS 21 en Ordering designation Application X-SW Flexible washer fastener for fastening plastic sheeting and thin insulating materials to concrete and steel Suspension system with threaded connection Fastening clip for wire hangers Metal conduit clip for fastening electrical conduits or insulated pipes (hot or cold) in water supply and heating installations Cable clasp for fastening electric cables flat on ceilings and walls Bunched cable holder for fastening cables on ceilings and walls Fastener for plastic (PVC) electric cable trunking Threaded stud for temporary fastenings on concrete and steel Approved (ETA) DX-Kwik fastening system use on concrete with predrilling X-HS / X-HS-W en X‑CC X-(D)FB / X-EMTC X‑EKB X-ECH X‑ET X-(E)M/W/6/8 ...

Use it only as directed and when in faultless condition. b) Never leave a loaded tool unattended. c) Store unused cartridges and tools currently not in use in a dry place where they are not exposed to high temperatures. d) Transport and store the tool in a toolbox that can be secured to prevent unauthorized use. e) Always unload the tool (remove cartridges and fasteners) before cleaning, before maintenance, before work breaks and before storing the tool. f) When not in use, tools must be unloaded and stored in a dry place, locked up or out of reach of children. g) Check the tool and its accessories for any damage. Guards, safety devices and any slightly worn parts must be checked carefully to ensure that they function faultlessly and as intended. Check that moving parts function correctly without sticking and that no parts are damaged. All parts must be fitted correctly and fulfill all conditions necessary for correct operation of the tool. Damaged guards, safety devices and other parts must be repaired or replaced properly at a Hilti service center unless otherwise indicated in the operating instructions. h) Pull the trigger only when the tool is fully pressed against the working surface at right angles. i) Always hold the tool securely and at right angles to the working surface when driving in fasteners. This will help to prevent fasteners being deflected by the working surface. j) Never redrive a fastener. This may cause the fastener to break and the tool may jam. k) Never drive fasteners into existing holes unless this is recommended by Hilti (e.g. DX‑Kwik). l) Always observe the application guidelines. m) Use the fragmentation guard when the application permits. n) Never pull the fastener guide back by hand as this could make the tool ready to fire. This could cause a fastener or the piston to be driven into a part of the body. 24 5.1.4 Work area safety a) Ensure that the workplace is well lit. b) Operate the tool only in well-ventilated working areas. c) Do not attempt to drive fasteners into unsuitable materials: Materials that are too hard, e.g. welded steel and cast iron. Materials that are too soft, e.g. wood and drywall panel (gypsum board). Materials that are too brittle, e.g. glass and ceramic tiles. Driving a fastener into these materials may cause the fastener to break, shatter or to be driven right through. d) Never attempt to drive fasteners into materials such as glass, marble, plastic, bronze, brass, copper, rock, insulation material, hollow brick, ceramic brick, thin sheet metal (< 4 mm), cast iron or cellular concrete. e) Before driving fasteners, check that no one is present immediately behind or below the working surface. f) Keep the workplace tidy. Objects which could cause injury should be removed from the working area. Untidiness at the workplace can lead to accidents. g) Keep the grips dry, clean and free from oil and grease. h) Do not use the tool where there is a risk of fire or explosion unless it has been specially approved for use under these conditions. 5.1.5 Mechanical safety precautions a) Select the correct combination of fastener guide, piston and fastener. Failure to use the correct combination of these items may result in injury or cause damage to the tool and/or lead to unsatisfactory fastening quality. b) Use only fasteners of a type approved for use with the tool. c) Do not tamper with or modify the tool or parts of it, especially the piston. 5.1.6 Thermal safety precautions a) Do not exceed the recommended fastener driving rate (number of fasteners driven per hour). b) If the tool has overheated, allow it to cool down. c) Do not dismantle the tool while it is hot. Allow the tool to cool down. d) The tool must be allowed to cool down if the plastic cartridge strip begins to melt. b) Remove the cartridge strip from the tool carefully. c) Do not attempt to forcibly remove cartridges from the magazine strip or tool. d) Store unused cartridges in a locked place where they are not exposed to dampness or excessively high temperatures. 5.1.8 Personal protective equipment 5.1.7 Danger of explosion a) Use only cartridges of a type approved for use with the tool. The user and any other persons in the vicinity must wear suitable eye protection, a hard hat and ear protection while the tool is in use or when remedying a problem with the tool. 6.

The user of the tool and all persons in the vicinity must wear eye protection and a hard hat. Splintering material presents a risk of injury to the eyes and body. WARNING The material may splinter or fragments of the magazine strip may fly off when the fastener is 26 CAUTION The fastener driving action is initiated by ignition of a propellant charge. The user of the tool and other persons in the immediate vicinity must wear ear protectors. Exposure to noise can cause hearing loss. WARNING Never make the tool ready to fire by pressing it against a part of the body (e.g. the hand). This could cause a nail or the piston to be driven into a part of the body. Never press the tool against a part of the body. WARNING Never redrive a fastener. This may cause the fastener to break and the tool may jam. WARNING Never drive fasteners into existing holes unless this is recommended by Hilti (e.g. DX‑Kwik). 8.3 Setting the power level 4 1. Select a cartridge power level and power setting to suit the application. 2. If you cannot estimate this on the basis of previous experience, always begin with the lowest power. Select a cartridge of the lowest power level (color code) and turn the power regulating wheel to 1. 3. Drive a nail. If the nail doesn’t penetrate deeply enough, increase the driving power by turning the power regulating wheel. If necessary, use a more powerful cartridge. 8.4 Driving a fastener 5 DANGER Always observe the safety rules listed in the operating instructions. 1. CAUTION Do not exceed the recommended fastener driving rate (number of fasteners driven per hour). 8.1 Procedure if a cartridge fails to fire If a cartridge fails to fire or misfires, always proceed as follows: Keep the nose of the tool pressed at right angles against the working surface for 30 seconds. If the cartridge still fails to fire, withdraw the tool from the working surface, taking care to avoid pointing it toward your body or toward bystanders. Load the next cartridge on the strip by cycling the tool. Use up the remaining cartridges on the strip and remove the used cartridge strip from the tool. The (partly) used cartridge strip must then be disposed of appropriately to prevent further use or misuse of any unfired cartridges. 8.2 Loading the tool 3 1. Push the nail, head first, into the nose of the tool from the front until it is held in place in the tool by the washer on the nail. 2. Push the cartridge strip, narrow end first, into the grip of the tool from below until the full length of the cartridge strip is inside the grip. 3. If you wish to use a partly-used cartridge strip, pull the strip upwards by hand out of the tool slightly until the first unused cartridge is in place in the cartridge chamber. 2. Press the tool against the working surface at right angles. Drive the fastener by pulling the trigger. 8.5 Cycling the tool 6 NOTE If the cycling action is stiff (i.e. pulling out, pushing back in), this indicates that the tool needs to be cleaned. Service the tool! (see section 9.3). 1. 2. 3. After driving a fastener, grip the collar at the nose of the tool between the thumb and forefinger. Pull the nose unit forward in the main axis of the tool as far as it will go. Then move the nose unit all the way back to its original position. This movement brings the piston back to its starting position and advances the cartridge strip to the next cartridge. The tool is then ready to drive the next fastener. 8.6 Unloading the tool 7 Check that there is no cartridge strip or fastener in the tool. If there is a cartridge strip or fastener in the tool, pull the cartridge strip up out of the tool by hand from above and remove the fastener from the fastener guide. 27 en 9. Care and maintenance en CAUTION 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 condition of the piston checked at least daily when the tool is subjected to intensive use, and at the latest after driving 3,000 fasteners. WARNING All cartridges must be removed from the tool. Check to ensure that no fastener is present in the fastener guide before carrying out maintenance or repairs. CAUTION The tool may get hot during use. You could burn your hands. Do not dismantle the tool while it is hot. Allow the tool to cool down. 9.1 Care of the tool Clean the outside of the tool at regular intervals with a slightly damp cloth. WARNING Do not clean with a spray or pressure washer. Do not permit foreign objects to enter the interior of the tool. 9.2 Maintenance Check all external parts of the tool for damage at regular intervals and check that all controls operate faultlessly. Do not operate the tool if parts are damaged or when the controls do not function faultlessly. If necessary, the tool should be repaired by Hilti Service. Use the tool only with the recommended cartridges and power settings. Use of the wrong cartridges or use of excessively high power settings may lead to premature failure of parts of the tool. CAUTION Dirt and residues in DX tools contain substances that may be hazardous to your health. Do not inhale dust / or dirt from cleaning. Keep the dust or dirt away from 28 foodstuffs. Wash your hands after cleaning the tool. Never use grease for the maintenance/lubrication of parts of the tool. This may lead to malfunctions. Use only Hilti lubricant spray or a product of equivalent quality. 9.3 Servicing the tool Service the tool if fastener driving power is found to be inconsistent, if cartridges misfire or if parts of the tool no longer move or operate smoothly and easily. In other words, servicing is necessary when it takes more force to press the tool against the work surface, when trigger resistance increases, when the power regulating wheel begins to stick, when the cartridge strip is difficult to remove or the cycling action becomes increasingly stiff. 9.3.1 Disassembling the tool 8 CAUTION Forcing the spring clip into place may cause it to jump off with considerable energy. Take care to avoid injuring yourself or others. Hold the assembly with its back facing downwards. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. Pivot the catch out by turning the ring through 45 degrees. NOTE If the catch sticks, a nail can be used to help release it. Allow the assembly to slide out of the tool. NOTE If the assembly sticks in place it can be released by pulling with a jerk. Remove the spring clip. Use a suitable tool for this purpose (e.g. screwdriver or nail). Pull the base plate, complete with the fastener guide, off the piston guide. Pull the piston out of the piston guide. Allow the fastener guide to slide out of the base plate toward the rear. NOTE If the parts of the tool tend to stick due to carbon build-up, use the piston to push the fastener guide out of the base plate from the front. 9.3.2 Checking the piston for wear NOTE Never use a worn or damaged piston and do not attempt to manipulate or modify the piston. 9.3.6 Lubrication Spray the cleaned parts lightly with the Hilti lubricant spray supplied. Use only Hilti lubricant spray or a product of comparable quality. Replace the piston when: - the piston is broken - the piston is badly worn or chipped (e.g. a 90° segment broken away). - the piston rings are cracked or missing. - the piston is bent (check by rolling the piston on a smooth, flat surface). 9.3.7 Assembling the tool 13 NOTE Handle the small parts carefully. They could get lost. 1. 2. 3. 9.3.3 Checking the fastener guide for wear Replace the fastener guide if the tubular section is damaged (e.g. bent, widened or cracked). 9.3.4 Checking the spring clip for wear Replace the spring clip if it is badly worn or bent. 9.3.5 Cleaning 9 10 11 12 Clean the tool at least once a week or, respectively, immediately after each period of heavy use (after driving approx. 3,000 nails). Use the appropriate brushes to clean the individual parts: 1. 2. 3. 4. Clean the fastener guide and base plate, inside and out. Clean the piston and piston rings until the parts move freely. Clean the piston guide, inside and out. Clean the inside of the housing. 4. 5. 6. Fit the fastener guide into the base plate. Slide the piston into the piston guide as far as it will go. Fit the base plate with the fastener guide onto the piston guide. NOTE The pin on the piston and the slot in the base plate and piston guide must be in alignment.
