Frequently Asked Question

Question: Look at our conversation with Hilti-

Sawrev: Hi I am the owner of sawreviewed.com a professional saw review site. Recently I come in contact with Hilti and found it most costly. I found only a single noticeable feature that makes it different from other available saws in the market. That is 36/3.9 Li-Ion Battery. Could you please describe it and tell me how long the battery last on a single charge?

Hilti: There really is no way to Intelligently answer that question.  There are so many factors to determine how long a battery will last ( weather, how it is being used, skill of the user, age of battery…).  We will, however, put our batteries against other brands. I have included a link to youtube videos about our cordless tools.

Question: What is in the package?

Ans: 1x WSR 36-A Cordless reciprocating saw, (2) B 36 Li-ion 3.9-Ah CPC batteries, (1) C 4/36-ACS Li-ion CPC charger, and operating instructions in an impact-resistant plastic tool box.


When testing all the tools that came in Hilti WSR 36-A Cordless Reciprocating Saw kit, we found that they were easy to work with and all of them worked well.
