The AdvancedGrind 18 is the first cordless angle grinder from Bosch for do-ityourselfers. This powerful 18-volt tool offers flexibility combined with a high level of user protection: An integrated restart protection ensures that the angle grinder does not accidentally run on after a power failure. Additionally, it stands out among comparable competitor models thanks to its speed pre-selection for material- specific working, its soft-start function for a smooth start, and an integrated brake function which stops the disk within two seconds after the tool is switched off. This gives do-it-yourselfers complete control of this all-round angle grinder for every application.

One tool for many applications: Comfortable cutting, grinding and brushing

The variable speed pre-selection makes the AdvancedGrind 18 especially versatile. It enables do-it-yourselfers to cut, grind and brush a variety of materials from steel and aluminum to stainless steel. Users benefit from a range of further features designed to make work easier, such as a switch lock, a protective guard that can be adjusted without use of tools, and a spindle that can be fixed at the touch of a button, allowing the accessories to be removed and reattached quickly and easily. In addition, the angle grinder’s ergonomic shape with a slim handle and softgrip coating, as well as its low weight of just two kilograms – including the 2.5 Ah battery – guarantee comfortable handling.

Optimum power and maximum runtime thanks to the “Syneon Chip”

The AdvancedGrind 18 is faster and more powerful than comparable competitor tools. For example, it can cut through a twelve millimeter rebar in just five seconds – up to 50 percent faster than equivalent competitor tools. The basis for this superior performance is the optimum coordination of key components such as the motor and the gearbox, combined with an intelligent electronic system called the “Syneon Chip”. This gives do-it-yourselfers optimum power and maximum runtime at all times for every project. What's more, the AdvancedGrind 18 runs on full power until the battery is empty – right up to the last second of cutting or grinding.

A smart combination: “Power for All” from Bosch

The AdvancedGrind 18 is part of the “Power for All” battery system which comprises DIY and garden tools. Twenty different power tools, from grass trimmers to rotary hammers, can currently be operated using the same 18-volt lithium-ion battery. This eliminates redundant batteries and chargers and saves DIYers money, too. A “Power for All” logo on the packaging indicates which tools belong to the system.

The AdvancedGrind 18 cordless angle grinder will be available from autumn 2017 onwards. All prices are recommended retail prices including VAT. Subject to change.
