We’ll begin off with the brand new data on the Profactor product launch. A lot of this was already coated previous to this occasion so I’ll solely embody new data on this article. If you wish to take a look at prior particulars, please click on right here to view the unique article on the brand new Profactor merchandise.
Bosch has confirmed that the brand new Profactor cordless 18V energy instruments are optimized for the CORE18V batteries and suggest utilizing the CORE18V 8.0ah and 12.0ah batteries to get probably the most out of those instruments. We additionally realized that the Profactor energy instruments are backwards suitable with all Bosch 18V slide pack lithium ion battery packs simply have in mind these instruments are optimized for the 8.0ah and 12.0ah CORE18V batteries for finest efficiency. Bosch claims that the Profactor energy instruments when utilizing 8.0ah and 12.0ah CORE18V batteries provide efficiency much like corded energy instruments. Whereas compactible with all Bosch 18V batteries, they suggest to not use the brand new 4.0ah CORE18V slimpack batteries on Profactor instruments.
Their new 8.0ah and 12.0ah CORE18V batteries might be labeled “Profactor” as seen within the above picture with the 8.0ah battery being suitable with all Bosch 18V energy instruments. Nevertheless the brand new 12.0ah CORE18V Profactor battery is labeled as “Profactor Unique” which suggests that it’ll ONLY work on the brand new Profactor instruments. This can be a unusual choice as it can little doubt trigger consumer confusion and frustration. The query as to why this battery is barely Profactor software suitable got here up and the Bosch rep stated that (lengthy story brief) it’s due to analysis they carried out. Among the reasoning was additionally as a result of it wouldn’t make sense to make use of such a big 15 cell battery on a smaller software for instance an impression driver. I do agree on this nonetheless I nonetheless assume it will have been a greater thought to depart that battery suitable with their full vary of 18V instruments and let the consumer resolve on what to make use of it with. Certain such a giant battery is overkill on an impression driver or drill nonetheless it makes good sense on one thing like a round noticed, reciprocating noticed, and cordless miter noticed since these are energy hungry instruments. Even when these legacy instruments aren’t optimized to take full benefit of the brand new 12.0 ah battery, they might nonetheless profit from longer runtime because of its bigger capability.
Now transferring on to their Profactor energy instruments. All the brand new Profactor energy instruments characteristic a brushless motor which they name BITURBO with a drivetrain that’s claimed to “face up to the hardest jobs”. All of them are linked prepared (except the 2 impression wrenches) and in package type are kitted with the Hell-ion quick charger. The SDS+ 1-1/4″ rotary hammerGBH18V-34CQN is alleged to supply 4.3 ft-lbs of impression power, the Hitman SDS Max 1-9/16″ rotary hammer GBH18V-36CN is alleged to supply 5.2 ft-lbs of impression power, and the Hitman SDS Max 1-7/8″ rotary hammer GBH18V-45CK is alleged to supply 5.2 ft-lbs of impression power. They may characteristic tender begin and antivibration handles.
The largest Profactor energy software of the bunch is the Surgeon 12″ Axial Glide twin bevel miter noticed GCM18V-12GDCN which gives glide arms (that permit the software relaxation as much as a wall for a smaller foot print which takes much less counterspace), upfront bevel controls, variable velocity, and eco mode that provides as much as 20% extra runtime.
The angle grinders have the Spitfire title and have 5-6″ capacities and are stated to supply corded like efficiency, much like 13 amp corded grinders in accordance with Bosch. They arrive with electrical brakes and are available two fashions with a spindle and X-Lock mount mannequin.
They did exhibit their new Profactor impression wrenches and these are excessive torque impression wrenches that don’t maintain again the ability. They introduced not one however two new fashions with a 1/2″ mannequin that has as much as 1180 ft-lbs of breakaway torque and a 3/4″ mannequin with as much as 1200 ft-lbs of breakaway torque. The 1/2″ mannequin comes with a friction ring anvil whereas the three/4″ mannequin gives the selection of both friction ring or thru-hole.
Their Profactor round saws are known as Sturdy Arm and each characteristic 7-1/4″ blades with as much as 2-1/2″ 90 diploma minimize capability and a 360 diploma mud vacuum port that means that you can rotate wherein route you need mud to shoot out or for higher vac hose positioning. A kind of fashions is the extra featured mannequin with the addition of constructing it observe suitable so it doubles as a observe noticed and gives eco mode with as much as 30% extra runtime when eco mode is engaged.
Along with the 2 above talked about Sturdy Arm round saws, additionally they have an official real 18V 5-1/2″ tracksaw which additionally options the 360 diploma rotating mud port and eco mode that provides as much as 30% extra runtime when engaged.
There was a small phase on X-Lock angle grinders and equipment. They may have new fundamental X-lock mount grinders, some with electrical brake and can are available each corded and cordless fashions – a few of which have been coated within the Profactor announcement. Additionally they reminded us that the X-Lock wheel equipment are backwards suitable with common spindle angle grinders nonetheless I’ll add that their X-Lock mount grinders will not be backwards suitable with common wheels and solely use X-Lock mount equipment.
They introduced new laser level merchandise with new second gen Blaze laser measures, Visimax 5 level laser degree, and Revolve horizontal rotary laser and the massive announcement on all of those is that they now use inexperienced lasers for improved visibility over crimson lasers!
The Blaze 2nd gen laser measures provide a rugged design that provides water and dirt safety, a operate wheel with easy measuring, wall space and rounding characteristic. Additionally they have the added characteristic the place you may stroll off the start line, or stroll away from resembling you’d with a standard tape measure. It appears this characteristic is designed for familiarity for these used to utilizing tape measures, to assist ease newcomers to fancy new tech resembling laser measures despite the fact that they’ve been round for ages.

They’re stated to be compact in design with built-in mounts which have improved magnet power and have the power to make use of in transport mode.
The brand new Pushed energy software equipment are impression rated screwdriving bits. These are a claimed huge improve to their present line of bits which are stated to deal with tip breakage and stripped screw/cam out.
