Reciprocating saw is cordless

Hilti WSR 18-A CPC reciprocating saw is newest addition to 18-V cordless tool platform.

Tulsa, Okla., February 22, 2010—Battery charging and cords aren’t necessary with the new Hilti WSR 18-A CPC reciprocating saw—the newest addition to the Hilti 18-V cordless tool platform. The WSR 18-A is engineered with a high-efficiency motor and eccentric gear, and when combined with Hilti’s proven CPC battery technology, the WSR 18-A performs more applications per charge than other cordless reciprocating saws.

The new WSR 18-A is very useful for cutting EMT conduits, galvanized pipes, struts, threaded rods, anchor bolts and rebar, as well as cutting form work, plywood, OSB and 2x material. This reciprocating saw excels in creating openings in sheet metal, drywall and cement boards.

The Hilti CPC battery technology protects the battery, switch and motor for increased durability and longer battery life. And, the Hilti eccentric gear incorporated into the design of the WSR 18-A provides operators more work per charge. This new saw comes standard with a high-efficiency motor for longer tool life and productivity, as well as a drop-resistant housing to ensure maximum protection of the tool’s vital components. With the purchase of a WSR 18-A, Hilti guarantees unlimited battery replacements for two years.

This new reciprocating saw is built with a keyless blade clamp for fast and easy blade changes, as well as a variable speed trigger for more operator control in cutting applications. The WSR 18-A is also designed with a two-step injection molding grip to increase operator comfort during long days on the job.
