press release

At only 900 grams, the GSR 10,8 V-EC TE Professional with 2.5 Ah battery delivers long runtime at a low weight. With this tool, Bosch is expanding its existing range of cordless system tools in the 10.8 volt class to include a cordless drywall screwdriver that has been especially developed for flexible applications when fitting plasterboard. This tool is only 207 millimeters long, and due to its lightweight, compact design it enables professional tradespeople to also work in hard-to-reach areas or overhead effortlessly. The GSR 10,8 V-EC TE Professional also offers high performance and a long battery runtime, driving more than 1,200 screws with a diameter of 3.5 millimeters and a length of 35 millimeters into plasterboard with only one charge of the 2.5 Ah battery – which is the highest number of screwdriving applications in its class. The tool works at a speed of 3,000 revolutions per minute and easily manages screw diameters of up to four millimeters. The GSR 10,8 V-EC TE Professional is therefore especially suitable for fitting 12.5-millimeter plasterboards on wood and metal studs. This enables tradespeople such as drywallers, painters, plasterers, plumbers, joiners and electricians to quickly complete every standard application for them.

Long lifetime due to EC technology and Electronic Motor Protection (EMP)
The basis for the long runtime of the GSR 10,8 V-EC TE Professional at a low weight is its brushless EC motor which allows for a very compact and lightweight tool design. Unlike conventional DC electric motors with carbon brushes, it is also completely maintenance-free. Moreover, an integrated motor brake and the Electronic Motor Protection (EMP) in the GSR 10,8 V-EC TE Professional provide reliable protection against overload. Together with the brushless EC motor, these features ensure a 100 percent longer lifetime than that of tools with conventional motors.

The features of the GSR 10,8 V-EC TE Professional are completed by an integrated LED, a handle with softgrip, a charge level indicator and extensive accessories such as the MA 55 Professional collated screwgun attachment for Bosch collated screws. An adjustable depth stop ensures a precise screwdriving depth even at full speed.

“Flexible Power System”: Complete compatibility with the 10.8 volt range
Thanks to its “Flexible Power System”, Bosch ensures that the 10.8 volt battery with 2.5 Ah which comes complete with the GSR 10,8 V-EC TE Professional is fully compatible with all cordless tools and chargers within the same voltage class, as is the case with all its system tools. The 10.8 volt range currently comprises 27 tools and batteries with 1.5 Ah, 2.0 Ah, 2.5 h and 4.0 Ah.

The GSR 10,8 V-EC TE Professional is available now at specialist retail outlets in the following versions:
  • in a carton with two 2.5 Ah batteries and quick charger for 219 euros,
  • in the L-Boxx with two 2.5 Ah batteries and quick charger for 249 euros.
