Bosch launched two of the world’s smallest, most powerful ultra-compact Lithium-ion tools, Litheon™ 10.8V Pocket Driver (PS20) and the Litheon ™ I-Driver (PS10). The Pocket Driver is 40 percent lighter and 33 percent more productive than other compact drill/drivers, yet small enough to fit into a tool belt pouch.
The I-Driver, with a 90-degree articulating head, is the first professional cordless drill/driver to have a total head length of 3.5 inches. Both can drive 100 3-inch screws per charge. They are lightweight and powerful enough to accomplish a majority of professional drill/driving tasks all day without fatigue.
Engineering. Bosch engineering is driven by a desire to produce tools with low vibration, minimum noise level, maximum precision, dust extraction/entrapment, simple and easy accessory changes and the best possible power-to-tool weight ratio.
Bosch strives to develop tools that have dust ports, bags (cloth and paper), canisters, hoods and a complete dust extraction component system known as Airsweep™ with one objective: To ensure that your work environment is as clean as possible.
The Bosch Clic™ was the first system to allow for easy changing blades without the use of tools, and now all other jog saw brands have imitated this. Bosch SDS-plus® and SDS-max® systems for rotary and demolition hammers set the standard in this segment and the Power Change™ hole saw system continues this strong tradition.
Ergonomics. The study of ergonomic principles began in the early 1950s and Bosch is one of the first power tool manufacturers to employ ergonomic design in hand-held power tools.
Grip Area. Bosch designs handles and gripping surfaces to allow comfortable grip and weight distribution, multiple hand positions for better control and to help dampen vibration.
Noise. Bosch designs motor cooling fans and air discharge outlets to minimize the sound waves produced, deflect the air away from the operator and create a pitch that is not offensive to the ear.
Controls Location. Many Bosch tools are equipped with switches and knobs located for right- or left-handed users and 360-degree handles for optimum positioning, while most controls are operable even with a gloved hand.
Bosch provides a complete line of corded and cordless power tools and accessories engineered to survive any jobsite and allow professionals to take control of their work. For more information, visit www.boschtools.com.
