Bosch Brushless Rotary Hammer
October 12, 2016 - The rotary hammer is the workhorse of any construction site, providing the power and torque to drill and chisel in materials that range from concrete to steel. But the real differentiator among these power tools is putting all of that performance in a package that delivers great power at low weight – and that’s the story of the Bosch GBH18V-26 1" SDS-plus® EC Brushless Rotary Hammer.
The Bosch GBH18V-26 rotary hammer delivers 1.9 Ft.-Lbs. of torque in a tool that weighs only 7.7 lbs. The ergonomic L-shape design offers great horizontal power transmission. Combined with a Bosch 6.0 Ah Lithium-ion battery, this is a power tool that will drill longer and hit harder than bigger tools with more weight.
The advantages of 2x motor life and less maintenance comes with the tool’s lighter weight and the reduced-size Bosch EC brushless motor. Bosch electronic precision control ensures soft-start (70 percent) to help avoid walking or skating. Dust extraction is seamless with the optional on-tool dust extraction adapter (available 2017).
More Safety Features
The Bosch GBH18V-26 1″ SDS-plus® EC Brushless Rotary Hammer features proprietary KickBack Control, an integrated acceleration sensor that virtually stops the drill’s rotation during bit bind-up situations. It’s designed to reduce potential arm and wrist injuries. In addition, the tool includes industry-leading Bosch vibration control for added user safety and ease of use.
“The Bosch GBH18V-26 rotary hammer is the result of extensive research on the jobsite combined with user feedback,” said Mike Iezzi, product manager, concrete products, Robert Bosch Tool Corporation. “Users demand a tool that brings the power every day, every job, but one that comes in an easy-to-handle package. We continue to deliver tools with the combination of power and advanced design that get the job done with respect for precision and user safety.”
The Bosch Flexible Power System is one of the most versatile Lithium-ion battery platforms available. The system offers complete compatibility by allowing 18V FatPack and SlimPack batteries to be used with any tool. And Bosch 18V 2.0 Ah and larger batteries feature CoolPack technology, which offers a heat conductive housing to keep batteries cooler for superior runtime and up to 2X longer life. All Bosch batteries provide cold weather performance to -4°F. Each battery includes a fuel gauge.
Bosch Electronic Cell Protection protects the battery against overload, overheating and depth discharge for longer runtime. Likewise, Bosch Electronic Motor Protection protects the motor against overload with integrated temperature management.
