In future anyone who wants to quickly and easily remove old coverings such as wallpaper, flaking plaster or paint residues from walls and other surfaces can use the PWR 180 CE from Bosch. This DIY tool works with application-specific interchangeable accessories. These include a perforator which replaces the classical spike roller, a sanding plate which can be used to sand filled joints on plasterboards or to remove plaster, and various brushes for cleaning or bringing out textures. The PWR 180 CE covers a very wide range of applications, making it a universal tool for conversion, repair and renovation work.

Work with minimal dust and high power, then easily store the tool
The PWR 180 CE is a hand-held removal tool with rotating 180-millimeter disc. It is connected to a mobile dust box by a 2.5 meter long hose. The PWR 180 CE is therefore clean to work with: the dust produced is extracted by means of an integrated high-performance turbine and fed directly into the connected dust box. It has a three liters capacity and features a high-quality membrane filter, which efficiently absorbs fine dust such as concrete and plaster dust. The filter is cleaned manually. To do so, it does not have to be taken out of the tool. Instead you simply turn the gray “EasyClean” insert in the lid of the dust box. The PWR 180 CE also has Constant Electronic which ensures a continuously high material removal rate even under load. The speed is continuously variable from 450 to 1,650 revolutions per minute, enabling it to be adapted to different applications. For example, you select a low speed if you want to roughen wallpaper. Higher speeds are recommended for efficiently removing plaster.

If you want to work close to edges, you can detach the front piece of the protective guard on the tool. As a result, the inserted accessory gets closer to edges and the adjacent surfaces can be worked more precisely. The PWR 180 CE can be guided in a comfortable and controlled manner: it sits comfortably in the hand thanks to its small grip circumference and has an ergonomically shaped, adjustable auxiliary handle. This enables the do-it-yourselfer to always take up the work position which is most comfortable. The PWR 180 CE may be conveniently stored after use: simply put the hand-held piece on the dust box, wrap the hose around the body and use the integrated wheels to easily push the tool to where you want to store it. Done.
