HILTI markets its tools to “professionals,” which essentially means that most of their tools are sold by contract to commercial customers. While the tools themselves often don’t seem that distinguished from their primarily-big-box-retailer-targeted cousins, HILTI does offer an extensive range of parts and service options for their tools. So it’s interesting to see what they’re offering from time to time — especially when Home Depot seems to carry it.
Like, for example, this 24V cordless reciprocating saw. The form factor’s a bit of a departure from most manufacturer’s idea of ideal, but it should offer a relatively low center of gravity which might contribute to ergonomics.
Besides the shape, it’s not that unusual, featuring a 2.0 Ah NiCd battery. The “kit” version comes with a single battery and streets for $380.
There’s one on eBay right now for $350. I wonder if he’s dumping it to pick up a Li-Ion tool?
