Bosch is launching a new generation of 18V cordless screwdrivers – a dynamic series and a robust series. All four models have new functions which offer a higher level of comfort for professionals such as carpenters, electricians, plumbers and heating installers.
The dynamic series range of tools combines compact design with high performance and covers the GSR 18 V-EC Professional cordless screwdrivers and GSB 18 V-EC Professional cordless combi drills.These are the first Bosch cordless screwdrivers or combi drills of this class to have brushless motor technology.
The cordless screwdrivers and combi drills have a newly designed precision coupling which is unique in the market. An electronic control system detects when this coupling is overloaded and stops the motor in order to avoid over-tightening when fastening screws.
This prevents the loud noise caused by over-tightening, minimises vibrations, and causes less wear to the material and coupling. This, in turn, results in reduced wear and tear and a longer service life for the tool and accessories. All screwdrivers also come equipped with a robust 13mm solid metal drill chuck.
The Softgrip handle has a grooved structure, meaning that it is easier to hold, especially when working overhead or in tight, hard-to-reach spaces. Two LEDs alert tradesmen when the tool stops: a white LED to show that the tool has a blockage and a red LED when the tool is overheating.
The proven KickBack Control function – previously known as Electronic Rotation Control – an exclusive feature of the dynamic series, gives users full control, even for the toughest screwdriving and drilling jobs. The integrated sensor detects sudden tool blockages such as foreign objects in the metal, wood or brickwork and shuts down the motor within a fraction of a second. This prevents unexpected kickback of the tool and, therefore, can reduce the risk of injury.
