Compact and balanced design

The small body and ergonomic design helps improve handling and reduce fatigue when working in tight spaces. The slim barrel grip makes it easier to hold and control when undertaking fine grinding.

Variable speed dial makes it the ideal choice for stainless steel

Variable speed dial

A 6-step variable speed dial lets you adjust the speed of the brushless motor to grind a wide variety of metals from carbon and stainless steel to brass, aluminum, titanium and copper.

GFB-6X-A22 has a lock on switch

Lock-on switch

A lock-on switch means the tool is always working without the need to hold down a button. This reduces operator arm-strain and allows the band file to keep grinding when you change position or grip.

The AG 4S-A22 includes a fast blade stop which contributes to job site safety

Interchangeable tool arm

Four tool arms are available to work in different sized spaces, while a range of abrasive for rough and fine grinding or non-woven belts for finishing applications, help you work faster.

Introducing the GFB 6X-A22 Band File

Why the need for a band file?

Band file tools are essential for reaching into narrow spaces such as joints to grind welds and create a fine finish in metal or stainless steel. Unlike other tools, band files have different sized and shaped tool arms in different cross sections and roller sizes for pipes, curves, edges, surfaces and extremely tight spaces.

The Hilti advantage

The GFB 6X-A22 cordless band file operates on the B22 battery platform and has the power to work with stainless steel, cast iron, aluminium and brass. With a brushless motor and low weight, it is a balanced tool which is suitable for working for long periods, reducing fatigue and risk to the worker. 

It includes a 6-step speed control letting you select rotation speed, from 4.3 m/s to 9.5 m/s,  meeting the needs of your application. This is especially important when working on stainless steel (inox), where the speed dial is key to:

  • Better results – because you have precise control of the abrasiveness
  • Faster progress – because skilled metalworkers can adjust the tool to suit their most effective technique
  • Flexibility – because you can adjust the speed to suit your material and application

The GFB 6X-A22 uses an optimized air-flow system to cool the band file and the electronics inside, resulting in increased service life. As you'd expect, all Hilti cordless tools come with 2 years of wear-and-tear coverage and, if your tool does break, we’ll repair it within 3 days – all at no cost, and giving you peace of mind.
