A interesting blurb on that other Hilti Saw thread. Will do some more homework in how their bagless works in the vacs.

Anyhow, I'd figure I'd start a new Hilti Must Have thread.

I started off with my 1st Hilti - Tec 6C. Made some money, added a Bosch 11264EVS to compliment the little bitty Tec 6.

Slowly, I added a Tec 7C, 70 ATC, DX460MX gun.
I use Hilti alot for their *firestopping systems* and when I have a specific anchoring requirements. Got a foam gun when I bought their foam.
Picked up their 1400 sawzall after using someone elses, and I was sold on the 3X+ price tag on their saw - when compared to the sawzall in my stash...



I don't have a rep so it's not much off retail for me on the stuff I get from Big Red.

I know everyone seems to like their laser stuff. I prefer my Leicas in distance, and PLS for interior.It's hard to teach a dog new tricks on certain things, and lasers tools are always the 2.


Curious what are you must have Hilti Tools...

Depends on your line of work.

We are mostly concrete

TE 70
TE 3000
DX 460
TE 7c
And then their gas saws, I can't remember the number

We have their lasers and cordless kits too oh yeah and their core rig DD150 I think

I have the Hilti 18-A impact driver, hammerdrill, recip saw, and circular saw...I have my eyes on their corded circular saw, but the cordless has so much power I'm not sold on the fact I need it yet!
I am in the opposite boat I bought their corded versions (saws) and now looking at the cordless versions.

The circular saw WSC 7.25 is very nice to use and seems very well built even if it does unfortunately say "made in china to hilti specs". It has a rip guide that locks down with two nuts and stays tight, even marked out so you don't even have to measure just set and go.

The WSR 1400-PE reciprocating saw is just another animal for a saw. It is made in Switzerland and is heavier than my foremans old school Milwaukee sawzall. The variable speed is nice but you can tell the thing was made just for all out demo work and nothing else.

The WSC-7.25 is the exact one I'm wanting currently...Just haven't heard anyone talk about it much at all...glad to hear you like it, maybe I'll take the plunge and just get it!

I would buy it again, then again I am a bit of Hilti fan boy. The universal kit box case does not fit that saw though you have to special order the case. Every thing else is gravy with the saw though.

things not in the picture all by HILTI
2- hole saw kits ( 18 p bi-metal and 12 p carbide)
1- 12 p spade bit kit
1- 32 piece cobalt drill index
1- driver bit kit
