Bosch Power Tools has introduced GBH18V-26D 18V EC Brushless 1 In. SDS-plus Bulldog Rotary Hammer with CORE18V battery.

The tool combines corded-like performance with next-generation lithium-ion 21700 cell technology.

The Bosch GBH18V-26D rotary hammer weighs 5.8 pounds – excluding the batter – and delivers 1.9 Ft.-Lbs. of impact energy (EPTA) for superior impact-to-weight ratio and advanced performance in heavy-duty drilling and chipping applications in concrete. The EC Brushless motor maximizes battery runtime for extended applications.

The GBH18V-26D cordless Bulldog is engineered with Bosch’s KickBack Control technology, which reduces the risk of sudden tool reactions in bit bind-up situations. An integrated acceleration sensor automatically shuts the tool off to help prevent potential user injury.

In addition to providing horizontal power transmission for optimized overhead, horizontal and downward drilling applications, the rotary hammer offers a soft-grip handle.

“Users are always looking for a more efficient way to get the job done on the jobsite and what better way than to employ legendary Bulldog performance in a cordless tool,” said Mike Iezzi, product manager, Bosch Power Tools. “This tool is built to give users the kind of performance that they’ve come to expect from their corded tools in concrete, masonry and commercial construction applications.

The Bosch cordless Bulldog rotary hammer is compatible with Bosch PRO+GUARD™ dust solutions, options that provide end-to-end dust collection that helps users move toward OSHA silica dust compliance. The GBH18V-26D is compatible with an optional GDE18V-26D 18V cordless dust-extraction unit, which offers a self-contained HEPA dust solution for maximum mobility.

The Bosch GBH18V-26D Bulldog rotary hammer features a variable-speed reversing trigger for accurate bit starting.

The Bosch CORE18V battery that powers the hammer relies on 21700 cell technology for a lightweight, high-power battery with all-day performance. Bosch exclusive CoolPack 2.0 technology helps to draw heat away from battery, increasing runtime and lifetime. The result is a CORE18V battery with greater power. All Bosch batteries provide cold weather performance to -4°F. Each battery includes a fuel gauge.

Bosch Electronic Cell Protection safeguards the battery against overload, overheating and depth discharge for longer runtime. Likewise, Bosch Electronic Motor Protection shields the motor against overload with integrated temperature management.
