1 Safety instructions
1.1 Basic information concerning safety
In addition to the information relevant to safety given
in each of the sections of these operating instructions,
the following points must be strictly observed at all
times.
1.1.1 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 explode
and cause sever injuries to operators and bystanders.
Cartridges must fulfill one of the following minimum requirements:
a) The applicable manufacturer must be able to verify
successful testing in accordance with the EU standard EN 16264 or
b) The cartridges must bear the CE conformity mark
(mandatory in the EU as of July 2013).
NOTE
All Hilti cartridges for powder-actuated tools have been
tested successfully in accordance with EN 16264. The
tests defined in the EN 16264 standard are system tests
16
Printed: 09.04.2015 | Doc-Nr: PUB / 5174156 / 000 / 03
carried out by the certification authority using specific
combinations of cartridges and tools. The tool designation, the name of the certification authority and the system
test number are printed on the cartridge packaging.

for purposes for which it was not intended. Use it
only as directed and when in faultless condition.
Never leave a loaded tool unattended.
Store unused cartridges and tools currently not in
use in a dry place where they are not exposed to
high temperatures.
Transport and store the tool in a toolbox that can be
secured to prevent unauthorized use.
Always unload the tool (remove cartridges and
fasteners) before cleaning, before maintenance,
before work breaks and before storing the tool.
When not in use, tools must be unloaded and
stored in a dry place, locked up or out of reach of
children.
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.
Pull the trigger only when the tool is fully pressed
against the working surface at right angles.
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.
Never redrive a fastener. This may cause the
fastener to break and the tool may jam.
Never drive fasteners into existing holes unless
this is recommended by Hilti.
Always observe the application guidelines.
Use the spall guard when the application permits.
Never pull the fastener guide or the fastener back
by hand as this could make the tool ready to fire.
This could cause a fastener or the piston to be

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.
i) Concealed electric cables or gas and water pipes
present a serious hazard if damaged while you
are working. Accordingly, check the area in which
you are working beforehand (e.g. using a metal
detector). External metal parts of the tool or machine
may become live, for example, when an electric cable
is damaged accidentally.
j) Use the fasteners only within the recommended
temperature range. Always observe the information given in the operating instructions. Plastic
parts can break and splinter at low temperatures.

8 Operation
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.
WARNING
The tool can be made ready to fire by pressing the
nosepiece against a part of the body (e.g. a hand). When
the tool is ready to fire, fasteners or the piston could be
driven inadvertently into parts of the body. Never press
the tool against parts of the body.
8.2 Loading the tool 3

2.
WARNING
The material may splinter or fragments of the magazine
strip may fly off when the fastener is driven. The user of
the tool and other persons in the immediate vicinity
must wear suitable eye protection and a hard hat.
Splintering material presents a risk of injury to the eyes
and body.
3.
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.
2.
8.3 Setting the power level
1.
3.
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).
CAUTION
If the tool has overheated, allow it to cool down. Do
not exceed the recommended fastener driving rate.
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.
22
Printed: 09.04.2015 | Doc-Nr: PUB / 5174156 / 000 / 03
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.
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.
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.
Select the cartridge power level according to the
application to be carried out.
If you cannot estimate this on the basis of previous
experience, always begin with the lowest power.
Select the lowest power level according to the color
code.
Drive a nail.
If the nail is not driven deeply enough, use a more
powerful cartridge if necessary or, alternatively, use
a shorter nail.
8.4 Driving a fastener 4
WARNING
Always observe the safety rules listed in the operating
instructions.
1.
2.
Press the tool against the working surface at right
angles.
Drive the fastener by pulling the trigger.
8.5 Cycling the tool 5
CAUTION
Do not use a swinging movement to cycle the tool
(piston return and cartridge transport). The swinging
movement may lead to injury or cause damage to the
tool.
NOTE
If the cycling action (i.e. pulling out, pushing back in)
is stiff, this indicates that the tool needs to be cleaned.
Service the tool! (see section 9.3).
1.
2.
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.
3.
Then pull the fastener guide 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 6
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
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. Wear protective gloves when carrying out care
and maintenance. 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
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 comparable
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, the required contact pressure increases, trigger
resistance increases, the cartridge magazine strip can
only be removed with a degree of difficulty or the cycling
action becomes stiff.
9.3.1 Disassembling the tool 7
CAUTION
When removing the spring clip from the base plate, the
spring clip may jump off the base plate very suddenly.
