As we continue to work our way through comparing all the top cordless tools (previous posts Hammer Drills, Grinders, SDS-Plus Hammers & Recip Saws) the next logical step for us was Cordless High Torque Impact Wrenches. Recently we have done a handful of cordless comparison tests in the most popular pro 18V tool categories which Hilti was not originally involved in (we simply were not able to get the tools for testing).
The Hilti 3-speed 18V Hammer Drill SFH 18-A does not appear to be a brushless model (no schematics on any Hilti tools) with only 743 in-lbs torque, reported from Hilti, it rates as the lowest torque output of any of the high performance hammer drill in our recent 18V Cordless Hammer Drill Comparison. Numbers came in pretty close to the Bosch which makes sense as they are both brushed tools with very similar torque ratings.
The Hilti 18V SDS-Plus TE 4-A18 has also been on the market for longer than some of the other competitors in the recent Cordless SDS-Plus Rotary Hammers Comparison. We tested the Hilit 18V rotary hammer exactly the same as the others: 3x holes in concrete 1” x 5” measuring time, 5x holes ?” x 2” and remaining holes ?” x 3” until the battery ran out. The final 18V cordless Hilti tool we looked at was the most popular cutting solution which we match up to the fellow competitors in the 18V Cordless Reciprocating Saw Comparison. The results were a little surprising for the Hilti, we thought this saw’s speed test would be at or better than the Dewalt DCS380 with a price well about the only brushless in the competition, Milwaukee FUEL Sawzall 2720-22 ($399). Just taking a sample look at 3 of the more popular cordless tool categories we’d say the Hilti 18V tools are right in line with the other professional brands in terms of snapshot “performance”. All that being said, professionals are loyal to the tools that perform for them and talking to many Hilti users are very affectionate to their tools because they are reliable.
As cordless tools become more powerful with longer life batteries and price continues to come down (especially when you’re already invested in batteries) there are several tools that really start to make more sense in cordless.
SDS-Plus applications are much wider in scope so it’s tougher to judge a winner or even a clear goal but our hope is this will help you as a tool when you are selecting your next SDS-Plus Rotary Hammer.
The hammer drill is the most popular cordless power tool, so no surprise these are the tools we see manufacturers reinvent every couple of years.
For this test we did 3 different comparisons in wood and metal to measure power, speed and runtime. The goal of this test is to basically look at these 3 top grinders and compare how they perform in heavy applications, speed as well as battery life. Generac has been hard at work for over 3-5 years testing and perfecting their new iQ Series inverter generators. We know the guys at ToolBoxBuzz have been hard at work on this 10” Sliding Miter Saw compareo with 7 of the most popular brands. Last week Milwaukee Tool had their annual “New Product Symposium” media event where they showcased many of their latest and greatest tools that had either just launched or will be available in the next 3-6 months.
Below are some of the YouTube Videos we managed to put together pretty quickly (pardon the shaky camera work and choppy edit job). These products should all be available soon, if not already, on the Milwaukee Tool page of Ohio Power Tool. Check out this great test of pretty much every cordless 18V SDS-Plus drill currently on the market from our friends at Pro Tool Reviews – see FULL STORY.
Together the compact drill and single speed impact will be available in the combo kit DCK281D2 launching at $279, while the hammer drill combo DCK286D2 will hit shelves at $299.


Other positive features include the batteries two 2.0AH Ni-MH packs which will hold a decent level of charge, and the drill is also a 3 mode machine, giving you the option of using a chisel bit for chipping or chasing out.
Packaging should be the same as what is found in a retail store, unless the item is handmade or was packaged by the manufacturer in non-retail packaging, such as an unprinted box or plastic bag.

Import charges previously quoted are subject to change if you increase you maximum bid amount. Hopefully everyone understands at this point, 18V “nominal” & 20V “max” are the exactly the same thing, so we are comparing apple to apple. Hilti is a professional tool brand, well respected in the industry so we definitely think they should have a seat at the table when comparing professional cordless tools. Price for the rest of the hammer drills also look to be below $300, many with extra deals for the holidays (free batteries, special discounts, etc).
Currently there is not a Hammer Drill Counterpart to this tool, perhaps for next year’s test they will have something ready.
With Hilti’s manufacturer rating of 1” capacity, impact force of 1.5 Ft-lbs, 0-1090 RPM and 0-5200BPM the power output on this unit looks to be lower-middle of the pack vs other units we tested.
Hilti had a similar weight to those models as well at 7.45 lbs and torque rating so it seems logical. Recip saws are really tough to predict performance because there really are not “power” rating manufacturers can put out there. At the time we were unaware of the difference in the 5.2Ah batteries so we thought the speed was just offset with longer runtime.
One thing we did learn is that the Hilti 5.2Ah battery is the highest rated “Watt Hour” which means on average the tools are going to run longer than equal cordless tools.
Until recently many would not even call them “cordless grinders” only “cordless cut-off” tools because they would stall almost instantly if you actually tried to grind with them. Grinders are much tougher tools to compare side by side with stats because there are no torque ratings only RPMs which means very little without a solid motor behind it. Of course when you say Inverter Generator everyone is going to think Honda EU2000i or Honda EU3000iS because they have done an excellent job of dominating the market for years with these extremely reliable and amazingly quiet units.
This event starts at 6:45am and packed the day full with never before seen (by the public at least) tools and accessories. We will follow up with more in-depth reviews, videos and comparison testing for many of these products. Feel free to contact the experts 800-242-4424 on any existing Milwaukee Tools and certainly they will do their best to get you info on any products not yet available.
It originally appeared in their printed publication which if you have not seen yet is very impressive. These are the most popular combo kits and price points that customers demand, which is exactly why Dewalt made these units the priority for their XR brushless platform with additional tools to follow. Our goal is to find new tools, accessories, and best possible solutions that will help improve the effectiveness of professionals in their daily jobs.

These heavy duty tools can make quick work of concrete demolition, speed up your foundation work, and be a life saver when working in a basement and need to effectively work with concrete. We will also compare these top cordless ?” impact wrenches with 3 of the most popular ?” pneumatic impacts (previous post) we ran on the same Skidmore torque tester a few weeks ago. The Hilti actually outperformed the rest of the tools in battery life with the ?” bit which seemed odd for just “.2 Ah” more. With the battery having 112Wh however it just means the Hilti battery is a bigger fuel tank. You will certainly notice a 10-20% more run-time per battery charge and everyone can remember the last time a tool fail in middle of a job. The cordless SDS-Plus rotary hammer is quickly becoming one of those tools that really compliments a cordless platform. The team at Generac is very excited to launch the new Generac iQ2000 ($799) inverter generator because they are confident they’ve created a “Quieter, Smarter, Long-Running” unit that will outperform the Honda and still be $200-$300 less expensive.


As an avid reader of any and all comparison tests, especially in the tool category, we always hope to come away with a better understanding of the differences in the various products but hopefully learn more about the options in the market in general. We wanted to hit the new product highlights and have left out most of the items we’ve already covered in previous posts such as M18 Band Saw, Pressing Tools, etc.
We really just wanted to let you know what new tools are coming as well as the promise Milwaukee is making for each of these new tools. For more pictures also check out our Facebook Photo Album with an additional 120+ pictures from the event. The single speed impact will be their second brushless impact to launch and will be the more cost effective counterpart to the three speed brushless XR DCF895 ($259) impact we saw launched last year. Looking at all 7 models together we will hopefully be able to get some definitive answers on the Cordless Impact Wrench vs Air Impact Wrench debate. We ran them through the identical tests as the Bosch, Dewalt, Makita, Metabo and Milwaukee tools only a few weeks earlier. Not that this saws performance was bad, as a rule of thumb if any tool rates about the same as similar Metabo and Bosch chances are it’s a pretty good tool. The Hilti cordless tools themselves however reminds us a lot of the Bosch cordless with very solid performers but they are not continuously upgrading tool models as we are seeing from Milwaukee and Makita especially, seemingly redoing tools every other year. We did answer a lot of questions amoungst ourselves here at Coptool and we even learned more about the other comparison tests we did looking backwards. Of course many of these tools will spend only a small fraction of their lives actually working in concrete and some may never touch any aggregate.
If this trend continues and prices continue to come down we could see a big shift towards cordless grinders. Very well done, but don’t take our word for it check out their video below then head over to their site for the full review. What better way to do that than get a few clips from the Milwaukee Team pitching it themselves.
To purchase one of these fine cordless drills contact the pros at Ohio Power Tool and they’ll be able to help you out (at least with all the good ones). So with each seemingly small advance in SDS Hammer Drill technology the lives of the men and women behind those drills improve dramatically. In today’s world a 3, 4 or 5 year old cordless tool is simply not going to have the top specs as technology advancements are happening faster than ever before.
For this comparison we are looking at the cordless brushless 18V grinders from Milwaukee, Makita and Metabo. Looking ahead as manufacturers have more control over the “Amp Hour” rating and users putting more emphasis on Ah, we will need to also keep an close eye on “Watt Hours” as well to make sure we are looking apples to apples. This is another example how newer cordless tools are just leapfrogging forward so the newer the tools (brushed or especially brushless) the better it is going to perform. Inspired by his Grandfather who built his home from the ground up with his bare hands in Portugal, he received his formal training in Carpentry at the North Bennett Street School in Boston, MA.
We would not be surprised to see a Hilti 18V Brushless Recip Saw in 2016 but we haven’t heard anything specific. Phil continues to grow his skills as a lead carpenter, managing job sites in and around Boston, and a Captain in the Air National Guard bettering himself as a leader. Dewalt D25501kr or milwaukee 5317-21 Reply Todd Fratzel July 30, 2014 at 6:02 amRon – Tough question!
First of all, when you compare the two tools, the DEWALT is a bit more powerful, larger motor, more impact energy. When you look at price, along with that feature, I believe it’s a great option.Good luck!
They look like great value but unfortunately there are seemingly no independent reviews to find (yet)… Spec.
