“Simple. Compact. Different.” The new YouSeries from Bosch is defined by this slogan and revolutionizes the DIY world: With these three small cordless everyday helpers, Bosch aims to show that DIY work can be carried out in a more stylish manner than ever before. The drill/driver, multi-sander and hand-held vacuum cleaner share a highly individual look with a new, reduced color concept in Sienna and Black – and are also remarkably compact. Thanks to this new design, these small everyday helpers of the YouSeries are a real treat for both the hand and the eye, exemplifying stylish power in a new size: They are up to 50 percent smaller than their siblings from the 12 volt product family – and yet still manage to be surprisingly powerful. This is made possible due to the higher-capacity cell, which has been newly integrated in the battery pack – meaning that the battery cell and electronics are consequently optimized to the respective application. Regardless of whether you are drilling, screwdriving, sanding or vacuuming – thanks to the new series, creative individuals can intuitively beautify their homes quickly and conveniently, with no prior knowledge or expertise required. The compact and stylish design of these powerful little helpers means they can also be easily stored around the home and are within reach when needed – and, at the same time, complement any space with their appearance. DIY work has never been smoother.

Powerful yet elegant: A stylish way to drive in screws easily

Do you have a new cabinet or kitchen shelf that is waiting to be put together? With the cordless drill/driver from the YouSeries everything is quite simple: Whether drilling, screwdriving, or loosening screws – just select the required function using the sliding switch and self-explanatory symbols on the top of the tool, and you are good to go. Settings such as gear selection and direction of rotation are adjusted automatically and do not need to be taken into consideration. The speed can also be variably adjusted using the speed trigger. This allows DIY enthusiasts to assemble items such as their bedside cabinet, for example, and precisely screw components together without damaging the surfaces. No matter the project, the cordless drill/driver from the YouSeries works particularly efficient in any kind of application thanks to its newly developed brushless motor: Particularly compact and powerful, the motor allows up to 90 screws of 4 x 40 millimeters in size to be driven in with a single charge of the 4.0 Ah battery.

A versatile all-rounder: Sanding has never been finer

The cordless multi-sander from the YouSeries is designed for small to medium sanding projects and quickly and easily makes surfaces silky smooth – no matter whether the sanding project is a board for a kitchen shelf, a garden chair or a decorative piece of furniture. Thanks to its handy and easy to operate design, it fits comfortably into the hand in any position and can even reach tight spaces. The powerful yet compact tool can be simply switched on or off using a single push button on top of the device. In addition, it can be attached to all conventional Bosch dust extraction units via a dust extraction attachment with a flexible hose, ensuring your home to be spotless again after finishing up any kind of DIY project. A belt clip on the hose allows creative do-it-yourselfers even more freedom: Simply attach the clip to the belt of your trousers so that the hose is no longer in the way – and then: sand away.

A universal everyday helper: Vacuuming with style

The handy cordless hand-held vacuum cleaner completes the range of small everyday helpers in the YouSeries – and can be used flexibly in any situation: Around the home, for crafting and DIY work, or even if you are on the move, for example, in your car or while camping. It vacuums up a variety of substances – including crumbs, dust, dirt and pet hair – in no time at all, and is also particularly user-friendly due to its integrated filter. The filter can be cleaned or replaced quickly and easily in few simple steps.

The three cordless tools from the YouSeries come with a USB-C connection port – and can therefore be charged quickly and easily using a USB charger. They will be available from April 2019. Additional tools for the YouSeries range will follow. All prices are recommended retail prices including VAT.
