Contractors looking for more options for their toolbox may want to check out the offerings from HILTI. The company recently released 30 new products, and there are even more to come. RC Publisher Jill Bloom met with Matt Jackson, senior director of electric tools and accessories at HILTI, to discuss the new products.

In particular, one item Jackson noted was worthy of attention is HILTI's new 22-volt battery, which works with any type of job. 

“We were able to deliver all the performance that you need on 22 volts,” Jackson said.

HILTI took another step forward into the digital age with the battery. The battery is able to collect data regarding what tool it was used with, what it was used for and more, giving users data to streamline operations and monitor wear-and-tear.

“Every time the battery is taken off the tool or tools, it will communicate with the charger and it will be sent to the cloud,” Jackson said.

HILTI will be releasing more products in the coming months, including a high-speed charger that can charge batteries in 30 minutes.

"Transitioning from gas or corded to the Nuron all-on-one cordless platform with Hilti reduces tool crib complexity, without compromising on performance," said Mike McGowan, region head and CEO of Hilti North America, in a statement. "And Nuron continues to enable businesses to make informed decisions using real-time jobsite data obtained from its cloud-connected, intelligent cordless tools and batteries."
