See for yourself, just how fast you can work with the SDT stand-up tool.


Our SDT stand-up system has been designed to be:

  • Ergonomic – no need for bending down
  • Fast to use – the system is mobile, so no need to carry a power supply onto the deck
  • Productive – it works with collated screw strips, designed to work continually without stopping and starting, helping to save time on the jobsite
I never expected a breaker in this class having such a power, and I have been in the industry for decades.

“My employees on the jobsite are very happy to work with the TE 2000. This breaker is very powerful, feels light and comfortable to work with. It comes with AVR, so vibration which the worker is exposed to is very reduced. We bought the TE 2000 in addition to our lighter TE 1000 breakers from Hilti."
