Whether wet or dry, coarse, or fine: The AdvancedVac 18V-8 is the first wet/dry vacuum cleaner in the DIY range from Bosch. It reliably removes dirt both indoors and outdoors. House, hobby workshop, garden, car or mobile home ‒ thanks to integrated rollers and a large range of accessories such as inflation nozzles, suction pipes as well as floor and crevice nozzle, the AdvancedVac 18V-8 is much more versatile than conventional wet/dry vacuum cleaners for DIYers. For example, it can vacuum up potting soil spilled in the trunk of a car just as easily as water which has flowed out of a washing machine. Switching from dry to wet applications takes just a matter of seconds without having to change the filter.

DIYers can also quickly and easily switch the AdvancedVac 18V-8 from the suction function to the blowing function by repositioning the hose. It can then also inflate air mattresses or remove leaves in the courtyard driveway. And that’s not all: The portable and rolling 3-in-1 multi-talent also features a universal adapter which enables it to be connected to many different power tools, for example the cordless jigsaws EasySaw 18V-70 and UniversalSaw 18V-100. The AdvancedVac 18V-8 then vacuums the dust directly from where it is produced and minimizes annoying cleaning after sawing. The Eco Mode extends the battery runtime and is ideally suited for lighter suction applications.

“Power for All” – one battery for all applications in the home and garden

The AdvancedVac 18V-8 enhances the 18 V „Power for All“ battery system from Bosch. It comprises around 40 DIY tools, garden tools and home appliances – and thanks to the “Power for All Alliance”, it even goes beyond the Bosch range. All tools – from rotary hammer to lawn mower – can be operated with one and the same 18 V lithium-ion battery. Only one charger per volt class is needed. This saves DIYers space and money and protects the environment.

The AdvancedVac 18V-8 will be available from September. All prices are recommended retail prices including VAT.
