press release

The GSH 7 VC Professional from Bosch is exceptionally powerful with low weight and good vibration damping. This SDS-max demolition hammer is driven by a 1500 watt motor, works with an impact energy of 13 joules and weighs only 8.4 kilograms. Due to its optimized ratio of power to weight, the GSH 7 VC Professional relieves the strain on professional tradespeople especially when performing tiring work such as horizontal or overhead chiseling. These demanding tasks, such as removing tiles, can therefore be done both quickly and efficiently. The vibration damping system also contributes to comfortable use of the tool: the demolition hammer achieves low vibration of only 9.5 m/s² thanks to its optimized hammer mechanism and decoupled main and side handles. As a result, the permitted operating time is more than two hours per day and user. In combination with the high material removal rate of 240 kilograms of concrete per hour, which has been confirmed in independent tests by the renowned testing institute SLG Prüf- und Zertifizierungs GmbH, and the Constant Electronic which enables the GSH 7 VC Professional to deliver consistent performance even under load, this ensures fast work progress.

Long lifetime due to robust design
The GSH 7 VC Professional demolition hammer has a long lifetime thanks to its robust metal components and the hammer mechanism which has been specially designed and tested for chiseling. An integrated service display also shows in advance when the carbon brushes have to be changed.

The tool's features are completed by a speed controller to enable the impact force to be adjusted to suit the application, the Vario-Lock system which enables the chisel to be fixed in 16 different positions so that it can be adapted to any work situation, and a switch lock for comfortable, continuous use.

Bosch also offers matching accessories: “RTec Sharp” SDS-max flat chisels and “RTec Speed” pointed chisels are especially suitable for chiseling with the GSH 7 VC Professional. They have a self-sharpening cutting edge, which enables them to achieve a constantly high material removal rate over their entire lifetime.

The GSH 7 VC Professional will be available at specialist retail outlets from January 2014 onwards for 799 euros plus VAT. It is supplied with a side handle and an “RTec Speed” pointed chisel in a carrying case that offers a lot of space for accessories.
