The new Hilti DSH 600-X saw is designed to operate for four years, compared to the two-year lifespan of an average cut-off saw used in construction.
According to the manufacturer, they producing 36% less vibration and faster blade stop than competing products, reducing the risk of exposure to hand arm vibration syndrome, fatigue, and other injuries. The saw can also cut deeper, with a 120mm cutting depth on a 300mm blade, and has a water pump to minimise dust intake by the user.
Another sales point that impressed Speedy was its 99.7% disposal rate, meaning that almost all the product can be recycled, reused or incinerated at the end of its four-year life.
Speedy supply chain director Andy Connor said: “Cut-off saws are our bread-and-butter, being a tool that’s so regularly used on any typical construction site. It’s crucial that we always have good availability of these core products to help keep contractors’ projects moving.
“The Hilti saw delivers a competitive spec-sheet for our customers, while helping us to deliver on our environmental ambitions. Equipment that works into the circular economy has less embodied carbon from the extraction and processing of raw materials used in the manufacturing process, while creating less waste.”
