2. 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
