The benefits of cordless freedom are maximised by compact, lightweight and ergonomic design. They not only boost work efficiency, day after day but save in the longer term through their high durability. They can be combined with the latest ProCORE18V batteries – at 4, 8 and 12Ah capacities – for greater power, runtime and lifetime, or with any other Bosch Li-ion 18V battery. Similarly, Bosch charger options range from relatively basic models to the world’s fastest charging units.
Amongst the newest additions to the Bosch Professional 18V System is the Bosch GBH 18V-26D Professional Rotary Hammer with SDS Plus. This universal D handle model, for vertical drilling and chiselling applications, has a high specification including a brushless motor that delivers 25 J of impact energy.
Another newcomer drawing much attention is the powerful Bosch GSB 18V-55 Professional Combi Drill. Despite its entry-level price, it offers a metal chuck and a brushless motor with speeds up to 1,800 rpm and torque up to 55 Nm.
There has also been great interest in the five 18V Bosch Professional angle grinders featuring X-LOCK – the fastest, simplest, most trouble-free grinder accessory-change system ever. The model choice is between GWX 18V-10 C, GWX 18V-10 SC, GWX 18V-10 PC, GWX 18V-10 PSC and GWX 18V-15 SC.
Looking ahead, 2020 will see Bosch introducing 18V ‘BITURBO’ tools designed to bring cordless freedom to power-intensive applications once thought beyond the reach of battery-powered equipment. The performance of its circular, mitre and plunge saws, SDS-max rotary hammers and large grinders will match that of corded tools rated between 1,000 and 1,800W.
