2 Safety
2.1 Safety instructions
Basic information concerning safety
WARNING! Read all safety precautions and other instructions. Failure to observe the safety
precautions and other instructions may result in electric shock, fire and/or serious injury.
Keep all safety precautions and instructions for future reference.
Using cartridges
▶ Use only Hilti cartridges or cartridges of equivalent quality.
◁ Use of cartridges of inferior quality in Hilti tools may lead to a build-up of unburned powder, which
may suddenly explode and cause severe injuries to operators and bystanders. The cartridges must
be either verifiably tested by the manufacturer in accordance with EU standard EN 16264 or they
must bear the CE conformity marking.
Requirements to be met by users
▶ Only authorized, appropriately trained persons may operate or service this tool.
Personal protective equipment
▶ You and any other persons in the vicinity must wear suitable eye protection and a hard hat while the tool
is in use.
▶ Wear ear protectors.
◁ The fastener driving action is initiated by ignition of a propellant charge. Exposure to noise can cause
hearing loss.

Personal safety
▶ Observe the information printed in the operating instructions concerning operation, care and maintenance.
▶ Stay alert, watch what you are doing and use common sense when operating a direct fastening tool.
Don’t use the tool when you are tired or under the influence of drugs, alcohol or medication. Take a
break if you experience pain or feel unwell. A moment of inattention while operating tools may result in
serious personal injury.
▶ Avoid working in awkward body positions. Make sure you work from a safe stance and stay in balance
at all times.
▶ Wear non-skid shoes.
▶ Never pull back the magazine, fastener guide or fastener by hand.
◁ Under certain circumstances, the tool could be made ready to fire by pulling back the magazine,
fastener guide or the fastener by hand. When the tool is ready to fire, fasteners or the piston could
be driven inadvertently into parts of the body.
▶ Keep the arms slightly bent while operating the tool (do not straighten the arms).
▶ Keep other people away from the working area, especially children.
Use and care of direct fastening tools
WARNING! Danger of fasteners penetrating right through. Before driving fasteners, check to make
sure that no one is present behind or below the object into which the fastener is to be driven.
▶ Before beginning the work, check the cartridge power level and the power regulator setting.
◁ Carry out a test by driving 2 fasteners into the material you are working on.
▶ Use the right tool for the work you are carrying out. Do not use the tool for purposes for which it was not
intended. Use it only as directed and when in faultless condition.
▶ Use a spall stop / protective cap when the application permits.
▶ Never leave a loaded tool unattended.
▶ Transport and store the tool in a secured toolbox.
▶ Always unload the tool (remove cartridges and fasteners) before cleaning, maintenance, changing the
fastener guide, before work breaks and before storing the tool.
▶ When not in use, the tool should be unloaded and stored in a locked, dry place where it is inaccessible
to children.
▶ Check the tool and the accessories for any damage. Check that moving parts function faultlessly, 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 parts must be properly repaired or replaced by Hilti Service unless otherwise stated in the
operating instructions.
▶ Before driving fasteners, check that there is no electrical wiring behind the surface into which you want
to drive them.
▶ Do not attempt to drive fasteners into unsuitable materials.
◁ Unsuitable materials include welded steel and cast steel, cast iron, glass, marble, plastic, bronze,
brass, copper, insulating material, hollow brick, ceramic brick, thin sheet metal (< 4 mm) and cellular
concrete. Driving a fastener into these materials may cause the fastener to break, shatter or to be
driven right through.
▶ Pull the trigger only when the tool is fully pressed against the working surface at right angles.
▶ When driving fasteners, always hold the fastening tool at right angles to the working surface in order to
prevent the fastener being deflected by the surface.
▶ Keep the grips dry, clean and free from oil and grease.
▶ Do not use the tool in places where there is a risk of fire or explosion unless the tool is specially approved
for this type of use.
▶ Never drive fasteners into existing holes unless this is recommended by Hilti (e.g. DX-Kwik).
Workstation
▶ Keep the workplace tidy. Objects which could cause injury should be removed from the working area.
◁ Untidiness in the working area can lead to accidents.
▶ Make sure that the working area is well lit and well ventilated.
Mechanical safety rules
▶ Do not tamper with or modify the tool or parts of it, especially the piston.
▶ Use only fasteners of a type approved for use with the tool.
Thermal safety rules
▶ Do not exceed the recommended maximum fastener driving rate.

▶ Use only cartridges of a type approved for use with the tool.
▶ Remove the cartridge strip from the tool when you have completed the work or before transporting the
tool.
▶ Never attempt to forcibly remove cartridges from the magazine strip or tool.
▶ Store unused cartridges in a secure place where they are not exposed to dampness or excessively high
temperatures.

Note
Dirt and residues build up in the tool under normal operating conditions and functional parts are
also subject to wear.
Carry out regular inspections and servicing. Servicing must be carried out after 30,000 fasteners
have been driven.
Clean the tool after every 2,500 - 3,000 fastenings. The fastener counter shows how many fasteners
have been driven since the cleaning indicator was last reset. One bar stands for 500 fasteners.
Check the piston and the buffer daily when the tool is subjected to intensive use, or at the very
least, before the end of the recommended regular cleaning interval of 2,500 - 3,000 fastenings.
The inspections, service intervals and cleaning intervals are based on typical tool use. If you find
that the tool is not functioning correctly before a scheduled interval is reached, service the tool
immediately.
6 Care and maintenance
6.1 Care of the tool
WARNING
Cleaning Pay attention to the following points when cleaning the tool:
▶
▶
Do not clean with a spray system or pressure jet washer.

WARNING
Risk of injury due to deflagration Powder residue in the tool may ignite and cause uncontrolled
triggering or fragmentation.
▶
▶
▶
Clean the tool regularly. Comply with all maintenance and cleaning information and instructions in
this documentation.
If inferior-quality cartridges are used, cleaning the tool will not reduce the risk of powder
residue inside the exhaust gas piston return unit igniting and causing uncontrolled triggering or
fragmentation. This can only be reduced by having the tool taken to Hilti Service for maintenance.
Clean the exterior of the tool with a slightly damp cloth at regular intervals.
6.2 Maintenance
WARNING
Dangerous substances The deposits inside DX tools contain substances that may present a health
hazard.
▶
▶
▶
▶

malfunctions caused by the use of unsuitable cleaning agents, use Hilti spray.
1. Regularly check all external parts of the tool for damage.
2. Regularly check all operating controls to ensure that they work properly.
3. Use the tool only with the recommended cartridges and at the recommended power settings.
◁ Use of the wrong cartridges or excessively high power settings may lead to premature failure of the
tool.
6.3 Servicing the tool
▶
Service the tool in the following situations:
◁ If power fluctuations occur.
◁ If cartridge misfires occur.
