Wood elements to concrete

With the DX 5, fastening wooden formwork to concrete prior to casting becomes simple and fast. Choose the right length from the X-C and X-P nail types, adjust the correct power setting required and complete the work up to 10 times faster. A fully automatic tool-the DX 5 does not require the operator to cycle the tool each time. DX 5 MX comes remounted with the nail magazine, that holds up to 10 nails at a time- by using which you don’t have to waste time reloading nails after every fixing.

DX 5 GR is designed with a custom nose piece to enable easy access between bearing bars, to install Hilti X-GR grating clips. Not only does the fully automatic DX 5 GR ensure high speed of installation, it also allows you to choose the right power to suit the steel strength on site. Since the gratings can be secured by working only from the topside, grating installation can be done at an unbeatable speed
