Cordless and convenient grinding, cutting, or brushing with the two new cordless angle grinders from Bosch for DIYers: As a new model in the entry segment, the UniversalGrind 18V-75 is a reliable partner for many applications thanks to its compactness and ease of use. The new AdvancedGrind 18V-80 offers even more operating and work comfort for larger and more complex tasks. Both angle grinders are part of the ‘18V Power for All System’ from Bosch. This system covers all representative tools per segment, currently comprises about 60 DIY, garden, and home appliances, and even extends beyond the Bosch range with additional partners in the cross-brand ‘Power for All Alliance’. All tools – from rotary hammer to lawn mower and even vacuum cleaner – can be operated with the same 18V lithium-ion battery and only one charger. This saves DIYers space and money and protects the environment.

More safety and control in all working phases

Both cordless angle grinders feature powerful motors with a soft start function. The angle grinders therefore do not start straightaway at full speed but increase power continuously during the first few seconds of application. This function provides more comfort and control when working since users have time to position and align their tool precisely. If the power supply to the tool is interrupted, the restart protection prevents uncontrolled starting and reduces the risk of injuries. The quick adjust guards can be set to different positions without tools and can therefore be aligned depending on the application. The supplied guard converter offers increased safety during cutting applications and can simply be clipped on. The ergonomic and slim handle with soft grip, as well as the compact design and the low weight ensure comfortable handling during use.

UniversalGrind 18V-75: Compact tool for smaller applications

The UniversalGrind 18V-75 is the entry into 18V battery-powered angle grinders from Bosch for DIYers. This easy to operate tool features the motor power of a comparable corded 750-Watt model and is therefore suitable for grinding, brushing, and cutting in home and garden. Smaller tasks involving metal or stone, for example cutting metal pipes to length, derusting of gates and outdoor furniture, or smaller tasks with sheet metal can be performed with the UniversalGrind 18V-75 in an instant.

AdvancedGrind 18V-80: Speed selection, anti-vibration, and quick change

The new AdvancedGrind 18V-80 model features even more power and high user comfort for DIYers who often work with stone, deburr metal, or rough grind weld seams: The angle grinder is as powerful as a comparable cordless 800-Watt tool. Thanks to electronic speed selection on the handle, the speed can be adjusted to different applications and materials. Whereas a high speed of up to 12,000 rpm is suitable for cutting tasks in metal or stone, finer tasks such as polishing stainless steel can be performed at a lower speed. The anti-vibration handle enables users to work comfortably with minimum fatigue. This is practical when changing applications: DIYers can replace the disc without needing further tools thanks to the quick clamping nut.

The AdvancedGrind 18V-80 is available now, the UniversalGrind 18V-75 from January 2023 onwards. Accessories for different applications are available in the Bosch range of accessories. All stated prices are recommended retail prices including VAT.
