For a fast, even application of paint: Bosch PFS 1000 and PFS 2000 paint spray systems Produce nicer surfaces than a paintbrush and roller

  • PFS 1000 for lacquers and glazes, PFS 2000 is also suitable for wall paints
  • Convenient: Easily adapt the paint flow to different projects
  • Mobile: Compact tools with shoulder strap for comfortable use
  • Easy: Clear symbols on the tool make operation easy and user-friendly
Bosch is expanding its paint spray system range for do-it-yourselfers to include the very handy, easy-to-operate PFS 1000 and PFS 2000 models. Both of these tools are suitable for spraying water-soluble wood paints such as lacquers and glazes. The PFS 2000 is also the only paint spray system in the entry level segment that can also spray wall paints thanks to its tried-and-tested Bosch “AllPaint” Technology. At 410 and 440 watts, these tools offer the highest power in their class and enable a fast, even application of paint. This results in nicer surfaces than those achieved with a paintbrush or roller.

Easy, handy, clean – from paint application through to cleaning
The PFS 1000 and PFS 2000 paint spray systems are suitable for smaller projects such as lacquering chairs, glazing garden furniture and coloring wood toys or modelmaking parts. In addition to this, the PFS 2000 can also spray larger surfaces such as walls or garden sheds. The PFS 1000 and PFS 2000 are very convenient to work with. Do-it-yourselfers can choose how intense they want the paint application to be and easily adjust it using a control on the head of the gun. Easy-to-understand symbols directly on the tool help them to do this. The user can therefore see straightaway how the nozzle has to be set in order to achieve a horizontal, vertical or pencil spray jet. A graphic also shows the correct distance to the surface and the correct spraying technique required to achieve a good result.

Both paint spray systems have a high-quality, especially flexible air hose. They feature a compact design and come complete with a shoulder strap, making them flexible and comfortable to work with in different positions both indoors and out. The paint container of both systems is designed for quick use with short set-up times. It holds up to 800 milliliters of paint and is quickly refilled. When you have finished applying the paint, you briefly rinse the paint-carrying parts and can then get started on your next project. To switch between wood and wall paint on the PFS 2000, you do not have to replace the entire spray gun, just the nozzle in it. Then you can carry on working.

The PFS 1000 and PFS 2000 paint spray systems will be available at retail outlets from October 2014 onwards at the recommended retail price of 79.99 euros and 99.99 euros respectively including VAT. The PFS 1000 comes complete with a paint container, a shoulder strap and a paint nozzle for lacquers and glazes. The PFS 2000 also comes with an extra paint container plus filter for pouring in paint and a second nozzle for spraying wall paints.

The most compact and powerful in their class: Bosch expands 10.8 volt range for professionals Long runtime and low weight

  • Compact tools for fast, efficient work and low user fatigue
  • For quick jobs: GAS 10,8 V-LI Professional cordless dust extractor
  • Exceptionally versatile: GLI DeciLED Professional cordless worklight
  • Battery compatible with all 10.8 volt professional tools thanks to the “Flexible Power System”
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.

The first rotation laser with theft protection: The GRL 500 H/HV + LR 50 Professional from Bosch Quick, easy outdoor leveling

  • System solution: rotation laser with a receiver which is also a remote control
  • Audible alarm on tool and receiver protects against theft
  • Simultaneous charging of rotation laser and receiver saves time and resources
  • Tool indicates by itself whether calibration has to be checked
Bosch is now offering two versions of a rotation laser with 500-meter working range (diameter) for all outdoor leveling work: the GRL 500 H + LR 50 Professional for horizontal leveling (H) and the GRL 500 HV + LR 50 Professional for horizontal and vertical leveling (HV). The LR 50 Professional receiver included with the tool also serves as the remote control for the laser. There is therefore no need for the user to take a separate remote control to the jobsite. Moreover, this makes the new Bosch rotation laser the first on the market to have effective theft protection. Firstly, it can only be used together with the LR 50 Professional because there are no controls on the body of the tool. Secondly, an alarm is activated as soon as the rotation laser is switched on. If the laser is moved without the LR 50 Professional being docked in the holder provided on the tool, an integrated motion sensor automatically triggers an audible signal both on the rotation laser and on the receiver. All functions of the laser are also disabled.

“All-in-one” tool is charged simultaneously
Moreover, the GRL 500 H/HV Professional and LR 50 Professional can be charged simultaneously. This is done by sliding the receiver into the holder provided on the rotation laser and plugging the mains-connected power adapter into the base of the rotation laser – then the integrated lithium-ion batteries will begin to charge. After only twenty minutes, enough energy for four hours of runtime is available again. After one hour the batteries are 60 percent charged, and after three hours they are fully charged. This corresponds to a runtime of about 25 hours.

Functional features for quick, easy and precise leveling
The GRL 500 H/HV + LR 50 Professional has functional features which enable quick, easy and precise leveling. For example, the user can calibrate the tool himself after it has fallen down or if it has been outside of the permitted storage temperature range. The LR 50 Professional indicates by itself whether the calibration has to be checked – this is accomplished by sensors which monitor the tool even when it is switched off.

The GRL 500 H/HV + LR 50 Professional levels itself in the horizontal or vertical position, compensating for tilts of up to ± 10 percent (5.7 degrees). The horizontal leveling accuracy is ± 0.05 millimeters per meter, while the vertical leveling accuracy is ± 0.1 millimeters per meter. The Anti-Drift System (ADS) helps to prevent errors during leveling. It is activated as soon as the accuracy of the tool might be compromised by a shock or vibration, for example from strong wind. The tool is also dust and splash protected to IP 56 and automatically goes into sleep mode if it is not used for more than 30 minutes. All settings are saved when this happens.

The LR 50 Professional is equipped with a large reception area and an illuminated display which can be read from the front and back. A “Centre Line” function enables the rotation laser to automatically find the center of the receiver and align the laser with it. The existing slope is shown in percent. Another function is the display of the relative height in millimeters. This is used, for example, when you want to check the flatness of a floor. The tool also has a slope function, which means that a known slope can be entered directly in 0.1 percent steps using the LR 50 Professional instead of having to manually measure and set the slope. In addition to this, the HV version has the “Line Control” function in vertical mode. This is used, for example, to position pillars in an exact row in hall construction projects.

The GRL 500 H + LR 50 Professional will be available at specialist retail outlets from October 2014 onwards at the recommended retail price of 899 euros plus VAT, the GRL 500 HV + LR 50 Professional at 999 euros. The tools are each supplied in a carrying case including the fastenings and clamp for a measuring rod, and a power adapter with the cables required for charging. There will also be set versions including a tripod and measuring rod.

The LR 50 Professional receiver will also be available separately from January 2015 onwards for 299 euros plus VAT. Accessories such as tripods, measuring rods or laser viewing glasses are available in the Bosch accessory range.

Now available for ladies: The Bosch Heat+ Jacket 10,8 V Professional Heated outdoor jacket for work and leisure

  • Sporty-looking, weatherproof softshell jacket in sizes XS to XL
  • 10.8 volt battery provides heat for up to six hours
  • Comfort and functionality: Three heat settings
  • Versatile use of battery: USB interface enables mobile devices to be charged
Well equipped for cold days: the Heat+ Jacket 10,8 V Professional from Bosch makes it more comfortable to perform work and leisure activities in low temperatures. Bosch is now also offering a ladies' model of the heated softshell jacket. It differs from the men's version by having a tapered fit and narrower shoulders. It is available in sizes XS to XL. The tear-resistant, three-ply, breathable softshell fabric and the low weight of only one kilogram make the jacket comfortable to wear and ensure maximum freedom of movement.

Thought through in every detail
The Heat+ Jacket 10,8 V Professional combines the advantages of the 10.8 volt battery with windproof, water-repellent workwear and leisure wear. Carbon heating elements in the chest and upper back areas ensure optimum heat distribution. The jacket heats up fully within three minutes and, when used with a 2.0 Ah battery it will keep you warm for up to six hours. There are three temperature settings.

Compatible with all 10.8 volt batteries from Bosch
The Heat+ Jacket 10,8 V Professional can be powered by all 10.8 volt lithium-ion batteries from the professional series from Bosch – with any of the capacities 1.5 Ah, 2.0 Ah or 4.0 Ah. The supplied battery adapter connects the heating elements to the battery. Five pockets offer plenty of storage space. The spacious document pocket can be used to store objects such as construction plans, assembly instructions and hiking maps.

Versatile use of battery energy: USB interface for mobile devices
As well as heating the jacket, the battery offers the possibility to conveniently charge cellphones or MP3 players in the jacket or chest pocket via a USB port on the adapter. The adapter can also be used as a mobile power source independently of the jacket. To prevent unwanted energy consumption, a control button activates the USB port only when needed.

The Heat+ Jacket 10,8 V Professional for women is available now in two versions:
  • As a complete version with 10.8 volt battery, quick charger and battery adapter for 209.90 euros,
