Gas-Actuated Fastening Tool GX 3

Packed with performance

GX 3 gas-actuated fastening tool

Plano, TX – April 12, 2017 — The new Hilti Gas-actuated fastening tool GX 3 is the only tool of its kind because it does not require an external battery to operate. Just load the tool with Hilti gas and pins and get to work.

Replacing the popular Hilti GX 120, the new GX 3 boasts several upgrades including better performance in cold weather, smoother piston operation, increased pins per gas charge and an improved nail transport mechanism to significantly reduce nail jams. 

The curved magazine of the GX 3 provides greater accessibility and can hold up to 40 nails between the lengths of 1/2-in and 1-1/2-in. The tool’s power adjustment provides control of the nail embedment depth, as well as allows for simple nail jam removal. The easy to read gas gauge lets the user know exactly how much gas they have left.

Operators can stay productive longer because the GX 3 does not use an external battery, require general maintenance or need cleaning. The GX 3 can fasten up to 900 nails on a single GC 41 gas can. It makes fast work of attaching track to steel or concrete, wire mesh for lath/plaster and waterproofing. It is also extremely efficient at fastening Hilti’s full portfolio of electrical fixtures and elements. 

The GX 3 is covered by the most comprehensive tool service warranty on the market: Hilti’s 20/2/1 — 20 years of repair or replacement of defective parts; 2 years no cost repair including wear and tear; and a guaranteed 1-day repair center turn-around times. *
