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.
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.
