Compact and balanced design

The small body and ergonomic design help to improve handling for grinding and finishing. The slim barrel grip makes it easier to hold and control when undertaking fine polishing or finishing.

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.

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 tube belt sander to keep grinding when you change position or grip.

The GPB 6X-A22 uses an innovative inflatable air roller

A 270° contact area

When working on large tubes or pipes of up to 125 mm, the 270-degree contact area gives you high surface coverage. This provides you with fast and even working to ensure high quality grinding, finishing or polishing.

Introducing the GTB 6X-A22 Tube Belt Sander

Why do you need a tube belt sanding tool?

Tube Belt sanding tools are the required solution for working on large tubes or piping to gain a fine surface finish. Suitable for materials up to 125 mm in diameter, the GTB 6X-A22 proves its versatility and ensures it is an efficient and fast addition to your toolbox.

The Hilti advantage

The GTB 6X-A22 cordless tube belt sander operates on the B22 battery platform and has the power to work on stainless steel and carbon steel. The brushless motor and low weight mean it is a balanced tool suitable for working for long periods, reducing fatigue for the operator. 

It includes a 6-step speed control letting you select rotation speed, from 3.8 to 8.4 m/s to meet 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 GTB 6X-A22 uses an optimized air-flow system to cool the belt sander 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.
