press release

With the PFS 3000-2 and PFS 5000 E paint spray systems, Bosch will in future be offering tools which for the first time give do-it-yourselfers a free choice of whether to spray wall paints, lacquers or glazes. Thanks to their “AllPaint” technology, they are the first spray systems for do-it-yourselfers that can apply the different types of paint with only one gun. This makes them considerably superior to previous systems. They also make it easier to quickly and consistently apply paint, even on structured surfaces such as brickwork or garden fences, therefore saving time and materials compared to applying paint with a paintbrush and roller – with easy cleaning and no major loss of paint.

Easy handling
Watery wood glazes, thin-viscosity lacquers or thick-viscosity wall paints – easy-to-understand symbols on the tool enable do-it-yourselfers to adapt the PFS 3000-2 and PFS 5000 E paint spray systems to the relevant type of paint in only a few moves. The right nozzle and the corresponding paint mode are easy to select and set. Thanks to the powerful motors in the tools, most paints do not have to be diluted prior to spraying. Painstaking preparations and setup times are significantly reduced. The paint tank of both systems is also designed to make work go quickly. It holds up to one liter of paint and is quick to refill and clean due to its SDS system. The shape of the paint tank has been designed to ensure consistent paint supply to the gun in every work position, be it overhead or close to the floor. When you have finished applying paint for the current project, the system just has to be rinsed briefly, the nozzle changed if necessary, and the paint mode changed – then you are ready to take on the next project. The fine spray mist of both tools achieves consistent painting results both on large surfaces and in small gaps and corners. There are three spraying options: a horizontal, a vertical or a pencil jet.

Versatile and mobile: the PFS 3000-2 paint spray system
The PFS 3000-2 offers do-it-yourselfers a 650 watt motor with two-stage adjustment for wood and wall paints. Typical applications include spraying walls or structured surfaces such as brickwork and lacquering or glazing larger pieces of furniture and garden fences. Mobility is provided by a shoulder strap with which the paint spray system can be simply carried and an especially flexible air hose which is two meters long.

For large projects: the PFS 5000 E paint spray system
The PFS 5000 E sprays all paints undiluted with its 1200 watt motor. This powerful tool can be used, for example in a renovation project, to paint entire apartments or houses including the exterior – from different walls, to wooden floors, through to garages covered with tongue-and-groove panels. An especially long range is provided by the four meter long, robust air hose which can be simply wound onto the tool after use. The paint spray system is operated conveniently using a foot-operated switch, and the tool offers great freedom of movement thanks to its integrated wheels.

The PFS 3000-2 and PFS 5000 E paint spray systems will be available at retail outlets from now on at the recommended retail price of 129.99 euros and 189.99 euros respectively including VAT. The PFS 3000-2 comes complete with a paint tank, a shoulder strap, two paint nozzles, a cleaning brush and a paint filter. The PFS 5000 E comes with an additional paint tank and a total of three paint nozzles for different applications.
