Used Hilti DX350 Tools

I have sold and serviced many powder actuated tools over the last 20 years including the Hilti DX350 and the clone versions of the tool from many different manufacturers.  They are just such a solid tool with many different uses.   Here are a few points to help you find a good deal on a good used Hilti DX350.  Don’t just accept the statement that the tool fires or works well.  I have seen tools advertised as working well when they were obviously missing parts in the photos.

A Hilti DX350 tool should not just fire, it should fire solidly and advance one load each time you cycle the tool.  The most common thing a used tool may need is a piston or driver.  The piston or driver is what forces the pin into the concrete.  They are a wear part and so they chip up and can even break.  An aftermarket piston to fit the Hilti DX350 goes for around $30.  The driver is easy to replace.  If the tool isn’t advancing the load advance isn’t expensive, but it is a little more tricky to replace.   The little “C” clip that holds the front barrel together can get bent up from time to time.  Again this is a wear part, easy to replace and many of the tools have extra packed along with the tool.  Stay a way for a tool that has cracks or breaks on barrel or fastener guide.  If the tool fires and advances but make just a “poof” sound, almost like a bad load, it is likely the return pawl that reset the piston is warn.  Easy to replace but figure another $20 or so to fix.

When you are looking for a used Hilti DX350 tool you will find clone tools from Ramset, most notably the Cobra tool.  The Cobra is a great tool, but stay away from the Cobra Plus tools, many of the parts are not available.  As for prices, I have seen them all over the board but many good tools can be had for $100-$150 or so.  If you shop around you may find a tool with loads and pins to fit your application.  FYI the tool is a .27 caliber strip tool.  Loads are readily available at most big box stores.  The loads are color coded, going from the lowest, GREEN, YELLOW and then RED.  Start with the lowest power level and work up until you pin sets to correct depth.  Ramset, Simpson and Powers loads will work in the DX350 if they are .27 caliber strips.

3/8″ Threaded Rod Hanger For Ramset, Hilti P.A.T & Gas Tools

Ramset 38TRHSS 3/8" Shooter Clip For Ramset  & Hilti Tools

The Ramset 38TRHSS is a ceiling clip designed for installing 3/8″ threaded rod to concrete decks using either a powder actuated or gas powered tool from Ramset, Hilti, Simpson and others. The z shaped design features stamped 3/8″-16 threads and a premium 1″ pin. While not offering near the pullout of a 3/8″ drop in anchor, the 38TRHSS 3/8″ rod hanger offers some fairly decent pullout values for lighter weight applications. In 4,000 P.S.I concrete at 3/4″ penetration, you can obtain allowable pullout values of 100 pounds. Pull out data from Ramset.  The real advantage with the Ramset 38TRHSS 3/8″ rod hanger shooter clips is the speed.  So if your application is light enough, they are well worth looking at.

Consider a couple of other advantages of using the Ramset 3/8″ rod shooter clip. One added advantage that you may not have considered is the fact that you are not drilling do not have to contend with the Silica Dust regulations OSHA has implemented for any concrete drilling!  On some sites, you will find the actual quick shot of your powder actuated tool to be much less annoying than the sound of your rotary hammer.  Another advantage is installing the hanger with a pole tool for your Ramset or Hilti Tool.  Adding the threaded rod before you install can even keep you on the ground for a large portion of the install and may even help you get into tighter areas in crowded ceilings.

The Ramset 38TRHSS rod hanger is also rated for use in single shot gas tools such as the Ramset T3SS.  Gas tools require no certification and can be used on some sites that restrict the use of powder actuated tools.  Gas tools also work a little better on block applications with out over drive issues so you may find some creative horizontal uses for them as well.

You can find the Ramset 38TRHSS 3/8″ threaded rod shooter clip along with a wide variety of other threaded rod hanging options for 1/4″,3/8″ and 1/2″ threaded rod online at Construction Fastening.Net.  Not sure if our 3/8″ shooter clip will work in your tool?  Give us a call toll free at 1-877-212-2377 and we will do our best to help you out.
