Hilti Introduces Hand-Held Gas Saws, Line of Diamond Blades

Hilti's new hand-held gas saws, models DSH 700-X and DSH 900-X, cut concrete slabs, asphalt, sewage pipes and more. These next generation saws incorporate Easy Start technology that automatically sets the proper amount of choke for more first-pull starts. The company also announced it is offering a line of diamond blades.

The DSH 700-X is a 70cc saw available in a 14-inch model, while the DSH 900-X is a 90cc saw in 14- and 16-inch models.  Maintenance is simple with an easy-to-access and change starter rope, air filter housing and a reinforced blade guard. Common maintenance parts such as air filters, starter ropes, spark plug, and fuel filter are included.
