press release

Bosch is expanding its existing range of cordless system tools in the 10.8 volt class to include two new tools with an optimized ratio of power to weight and size: the GAS 10,8 V-LI Professional cordless dust extractor and the GLI DeciLED Professional cordless worklight. These tools are the most compact and powerful in their class while also being exceptionally versatile. They enable professionals in the installation and finishing trades to work quickly, efficiently and with minimal fatigue – especially when using them in tight spaces, hard-to-reach areas or overhead positions. All tools in the range are powered by a replaceable 10.8 volt lithium-ion battery which can be used in any tool within this voltage class. The “Flexible Power System” ensures compatibility with all existing power tools and chargers within a voltage class to offer professional tradespeople planning and cost certainty.

Powerful and compact: the GAS 10,8 V-LI Professional cordless dust extractor
The GAS 10,8 V-LI Professional cordless dust extractor from Bosch is especially suitable for quickly and efficiently removing dust and loose material, for example when finishing up on a jobsite. With a weight of only 700 grams and a compact design, it offers the best ratio of power to weight in its class. This cordless dust extractor is a flexible, handy tool for installers, kitchen fitters or window fitters. Its microfilter has a filtration performance of almost 100 percent and reliably collects dust that can be produced when working on tiles, wood, metal or plastic. Tradespeople can use the crevice nozzle included with the tool to clean hard-to-reach areas or gaps. The 2.0 Ah battery provides sufficient capacity even for lengthy applications. It runs for up to 15 minutes with one battery charge. The GAS 10,8 V-LI Professional also features a transparent dust container which can be emptied and cleaned in only a few steps. It also has an ergonomic handle with softgrip for comfortable handling.

A versatile tool: the GLI DeciLED Professional cordless worklight
The GLI DeciLED Professional has a total of ten LEDs and two brightness settings to ensure good visibility in every work location and in any position. The GLI DeciLED Professional is exceptionally versatile thanks to the different mechanisms for fixing and setting the lighting angle. Its folding foot provides high stability and a movement angle of 200 degrees, and can be used to bring the light into the desired position. The cordless worklight can be quickly hung on ladders or scaffolds using the integrated hook, attached to work clothes using a carabiner or fixed to metallic surfaces using a strong magnet. It also has a quarter-inch thread, making it compatible with tripods. This enables the user to quickly and easily select the right lighting angle and have both hands free to work with the power tool. Another feature that makes the GLI DeciLED Professional an efficient jobsite light are its robust, long-life LEDs. This cordless worklight is also exceptionally compact and lightweight.

The GAS 10,8 V-LI Professional cordless dust extractor and the GLI DeciLED Professional cordless worklight are available now at specialist retail outlets.
