TULSA, Okla. August 1, 2008 The new Hilti VC20-U and VC40-U Vacuums allow you to work virtually dust and dirt free, which means better work environments, less time spent cleaning, increased productivity and a longer lifetime for tools. 

Designed specifically for building and construction, mechanical, electrical and interior finishing, the Hilti VC20-U and VC40-U are ideal for dry and wet cutting, and grinding, drilling and dry coring, wet coring, angle grinding and wood applications. 

Equipped with 1,200-watt power and automatic power filter cleaning technology, the Hilti VC20-U and VC40-U Vacuums offer the best-in-class volume-to-capacity ratio and maintain constant high suction performance for virtually dust-free working without interruption. The valve opens automatically every 15 seconds, reversing the air flow by an impressive three times per millisecond, shaking the filter clean. 

Easy filter access and changeable dust bags save time, providing the user comfortable handling and effortless cleaning. The vacuums stop automatically when their tanks are full so the operator never has to worry about the filter being drowned by water or slurry.  

Thanks to a robust trolley, light and compact design, bigger wheel diameter and optional ergonomic push bar handle, transport of the Hilti VC20-U and VC40-U to even the toughest jobsite is no problem. 

A PES Nano wet filter is reinforced with a steel plate for added sturdiness. Additionally a HEPA filter and fleece dust bag are available if a HEPA system is required.  The plastic dust bag is specially designed for easy dust disposal and the antistatic hose assures the user there will be no electrostatic discharge when connected to a tool. Lastly, the VC40-U™s push bar handle and DPC 20 holder not only allows for comfortable handling, but also provides clean and easy storage for the DPC 20 Power Conditioner if used with the Hilti DG 150 system. . 

Covered under Hilti Lifetime Service, the Hilti VC20-U and VC40-U Vacuums will be serviced quickly and reliably, if needed, with no additional cost for 1 year. During the lifetime repair cost limit, which begins after the one-year no cost period, the tool will have a maximum repair cost of no greater than 30 percent of the tool™s then-current list price.  Once the tool is repaired, it receives an additional three months of no cost service. The lifetime manufacturer™s warranty covers the tool against manufacturer defects for the life of the tool.*
