Small package with a punch
New Bosch hammer drill/driver offers next-generation job site technology.
Bosch has introduced the GSB18V-535C 18V EC Brushless Compact Tough 1/2 In. Hammer Drill/Driver.
The manufacturer says the tool is a small package that packs a serious punch while delivering next-generation jobsite technology.
The tools feature Bluetooth connectivity (which connects to an optional Connectivity Tool Module) that links the tool to the free Bosch Toolbox App, which is available at the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store. The app works with a mobile device to provide enhanced tool control and detailed tool usage feedback, including battery charge status. Users can customize the tool, which includes changing the KickBack Control sensitivity and adjusting the time the LED remains on after trigger release.
The hammer drill/driver and drill/driver offer Bosch-exclusive Kickback Control, an integrated acceleration sensor that limits tool rotation by detecting sudden movement and shutting down the motor. The feature mitigates injury risk in bind-up situations.
Both the GSB18V-535C and GSR18V-535C offer an efficient, maintenance-free EC Brushless motor that produces up to 535 In.-Lbs. of torque for tough driving and drilling applications around the jobsite. The tools have two speed settings – one for high-power tasks (0-600 rpm) and one for high-speed drilling (0-1,900 rpm). The hammer drill/driver’s no-load bpm is 28,500.
For more accurate fastener driving, reduced overtightening and less cam out, the GSB18V-535C and GSR18V-535C provide a precision clutch with 20+1 settings. Not only will the user have fewer damaged screw heads, there will be less wear and tear on the tool components. Its durable all-metal chuck stops drill bits from slipping during high-torque applications with a high clamping force.
