“Hilti not only brings productivity to the construction site, now it also brings rhythm,” according to a statement from the Liechtenstein-based construction equipment manufacturer. Added to this can be ‘good design’ after its RC 4/36-DAB radio charger won a Red Dot Design Award.
Designed for use at the construction site, the versatile and robust radio plays smartphone music playlists, music from other mobile players and even music from streaming services via an integrated Bluetooth interface. The radio can also be used as a charger for Hilti batteries.
Hilti came home with four other Red Dot awards for its combihammers and drills: the TE-XY hammer drill bit, the latest generation of the TE 60-ATC/AVR combihammer, the TE 3-M rotary hammer, and the SID 8-A22 cordless impact driver. The tools impressed the jury with their improved performance, higher resistance to wear, and user safety features.
