TULSA, Okla. July 21, 2008 The new Hilti DCH 230 and DCH 300 Electric Diamond Cutters set new standards in performance, safety and comfort, proving that cutting and grinding with an all-purpose tool isn™t the best choice for every application.
With a 2.6 kilowatt motor, clever design and new cutting depth adjustment mechanism, the DCH 230 and DCH 300 reach the unrivalled and impressive depths of 3.4â€ inches and 4.7â€ inches, beating their competitors conventional angle grinders that both cut and grind, but only reach depths of about
Designed exclusively for cutting, the DCH 230 and DCH 300 do it exceptionally well, thanks to Hilti Smart Power. An intelligent electronic control system that constantly regulates motor power to suit the material being cut and the pressure applied to the tool, Hilti Smart Power makes these electric cutters ideal for even the toughest, thickest materials such as reinforced concrete, granite curbstone, slabs, bricks, metal beams, steel pipes and more.
Crafted with safety in mind, the DCH 230 and DCH 300 guide away from the operator™s body which helps offer protection from potentially dangerous debris. The low vibration of the tool helps increase operator comfort even when the tools are used for long periods.
One of the key components of the DCH cutters is the direct attachment of the Hilti VC20U or VC40U vacuum cleaners. The environment and the operator™s productivity are improved by using the matched vacuum systems, making nearly dustless cutting possible by removing dust right at its source.
For added operator comfort, the DCH 230 and DCH 300 feature ergonomic in-line design with the grip and cutting blades in exactly the same axis, allowing more precise guidance with less pressure.
Because the DCH blades are guided away from the user™s body, they are less tiring to use as the operator can make use of his or her own body weight to help guide and control the tool.
To benefit professional users, the Hilti cutting blades are specifically developed to perfectly compliment the DCH 230 and DCH 300 and ensure the highest level of performance.
