press release

The GOP 18 V-EC Professional oscillating multi-cutter from Bosch is the first cordless multi-cutter to be equipped with a carbon-brush-free EC motor from Bosch. It works with a degree of efficiency of more than 80 percent. Conventional DC electric motors achieve only 60 to 70 percent. In addition to this, the multi-cutter is supplied with a powerful 4.0 Ah CoolPack battery. This ensures a long runtime and a long lifetime of the battery and tool.

SDS system for quick, tool-free accessory changes
The GOP 18 V-EC Professional has the tried-and-tested SDS system to enable tool-free changing of accessories with OIS standard interface (Oscillating Interface System): simply loosen the tension lock, insert the accessory, and close the tension lock – and the accessory is changed in no time.

Universal, compact and low in vibration
The low-vibration GOP 18 V-EC Professional multi-cutter is a reliable and agile tool for different adjustment, trimming and repair jobs. It can be used, for example, to make plunge cuts in soft or hard wood, adjust door frames, sand furniture in hard-to-reach areas, or trim jammed nails. This tool therefore makes work easier for professional tradespeople, especially in interior fitting applications. The cordless multi-cutter is well-balanced, sit comfortably in your hand and can be used anywhere due to its batteries. It weighs less than two kilograms and reduces user fatigue: professional tradespeople can operate this tool comfortably, even overhead and in tight spaces.

Accessories with universal OIS and color-code system
Bosch makes it easier for professional tradespeople to select the suitable multi-cutter accessory. Firstly, all accessories are equipped with a universal Oscillating Interface System – abbreviated to OIS. Secondly, the color-code system enables you to tell at a glance which accessories are suitable for which materials. This system is being continually expanded. In addition to the classical accessories, other available accessories include a depth stop for segment and plunge-cutting saw blades and an attachable dust extractor adapter for sanding work.

The GOP 18 V-EC Professional multi-cutter will be available at specialist retail outlets from September 2013 onwards in the following versions:

  • in a carton with L-Boxx inlay including plunge-cutting and metal saw blade, scraper, sanding plate and two sets of sanding paper at the recommended retail prices of
    249 euros,

  • in the L-Boxx with the same scope of delivery plus two 4.0 Ah batteries and a quick charger for 449 euros.

Bosch also offers a 36-piece multi-cutter accessory set in a set case: the “I-Boxx Pro Set – Interior Fitting”. It is available at specialist retail outlets for 149 euros. All prices are excluding VAT.
