Hilti Nuron Drill/Driver & Impact Wrench Review

We review the Hilti Nuron SF 10W-22 Cordless Drill Driver and

Last October Hilti flew me out to their headquarters in Germany to give us an inside look at the 40 new 2024 Hilti Nuron power tools and equipment. I’m excited to announce that I have two of those new tools in the workshop to review for you. We are reviewing the new Hilti Nuron 22V Cordless Drill/Driver and the Hilti Nuron 22V Cordless Impact Wrench.

Let’s jump into the specs and features and what sets these two tools apart from the rest.

New Hilti Tools

What is the Advantage of Hilti Nuron?

Both of these tools are part of the Hilti Nuron platform, its 22V cordless platform that debuted early 2022. There are so many tool brands and battery platforms out there. What is the advantage of Hilti Nuron?

More Power

Most brands offer 18-20V batteries for the most popular power tools (drills, impact wrenches, grinders, etc). Believe it or not, 18V and 20V batteries have the same number of cells. Hilti Nuron 22V batteries have more cells and were designed to lose less energy during transfer for a more powerful battery all around.

Advanced Safety Features

Improving workers’ safety is a core emphasis of the Hilti Nuron platform. This has led to the development of advanced safety technology and equipment, such as movement sensors, auto shutoff, and ergonomic support to prevent accidents, injuries, and prevent physical wear and tear.

Data & Communication Services

Hilti Nuron also provides cloud-based data communication services. This allows you to monitor battery status, usage, location, and more for all your Hilti Nuron tools in real-time. This is an incredible asset since Hilti tools are most popularly used on large construction teams and this simplifies tool management.

Each of these features makes Hilti Nuron a great platform, but together they make Hilti Nuron an ideal platform for the construction industry.
