The EXO-T-22 Tool Balancer by Hilti is a “wearable construction tool balancer with active weight distribution for zero gravity handling during heavy wall demolition and drilling.”


The EXO-T-22 is listed as a tool balancing wearable, but in the context of this exoskeleton catalog, it fits in the “tool holding” category of devices. Regardless of how it is categorized, it is meant to offload the arms and shoulders when handling large, bulky, or heavy handheld tools. This powered exoskeleton uses Hilti’s Nuron battery platform, so the battery can be easily swapped between more than 60 Hilti cordless products.


  • Weight: 17.1 lb (7.8 kg)
  • Maximum load: 37.48 lb (17 kg)

The EXO-T-22 is meant to improve ergonomics and reduce shoulder and lower back fatigue from repetitive, continuous work. The integrated software automatically adjusts and balances the tool weight. It is ideal for demolition, drilling, and repetitive work from knee to head level. The wearable increases the possible work angles. It also integrates well with rotary hammers for demolition work.

Additional accessories can be purchased separately for the EXO-T-22. These include replacement tool harnesses and a wheeled carry bag.
