Increased control and added value through connectivity

  • Added value: Connectivity functions for individualized settings
  • Efficiency: Three preset speed settings to make work easy
  • Two models: GDR 18V-200 C Professional and GDX 18V-200 C Professional

Even more flexible and efficient work in confined spaces and hard-to-reach areas – this is what the new 18-Volt cordless impact drivers from Bosch stand for. The GDR 18V-200 C Professional and the GDX 18V-200 C Professional have the best performance-to-size-ratio compared to competitor models in the same category. Both tools have a maximum torque of 200 Newtonmeters and feature short head lengths of 126 or 147 millimeters respectively. Therefore, they are more powerful and compact than their predecessor models, and they are designed for all connections in installations and in metal and wood construction. In this area, they offer considerable advantages over cordless screwdrivers: The cordless impact drivers tighten common screws of size 6 x 60 millimeters faster, and also work recoil-free – the torque at the bit or screw is decoupled from the handle. Installers, carpenters or scaffolders can thus operate the tools conveniently with one hand – an advantage particularly when working in confined spaces. The cordless impact drivers differ by their toolholders: The new generation of the GDX 18V-200 C Professional also has a combined hexagon/square toolholder: Both, screwdriver bits and nutsetters can be used. This makes the tool even more versatile.

Connectivity functions for individualized tool settings

GDR 18V-200 C Professional and GDX 18V-200 C Professional can also be connected: The functions can be adjusted individually by an app via Bluetooth to adapt them to your own requirements. These functions include the soft start, which enables, for example, a particularly well-controlled and precise tool positioning when screwing in wood. Maintenance has also become easier: Tradespeople receive information on the tool status on their smartphone. Furthermore, the app enables repair orders to be sent faster, at any time and from anywhere. Connected power tools and services from Bosch offer added value to the user.

Fast and efficient screwdriving – with preset speed settings

Both cordless impact drivers are provided with three preset speed settings so that tradespeople can work even faster and more efficiently in all applications: The preselected speed minimizes the risk of over-tightening and thus snapping screws. The first setting is designed for small screws, the second for medium and the third for large screws. This corresponds, for example, to driving screws in sheet metals, wooden boards and metal profiles. Even more control is provided by the accelerator switch, which regulates the power individually. Both models are equipped with brushless motors for a longer lifetime and are operated by powerful 18-volt lithium-ion batteries. Those who place a value on light weight with a high output can turn to the new “Compact”" high-performance battery ProCore18V 4.0 Ah: Thanks to new higher-capacity cells, it is single-layered and is thus considerably smaller and more compact than the two-layered standard battery with 4.0 Ah.

The cordless impact drivers GDR 18V-200 C Professional and GDX 18V-200 C Professional are available from September 2018 onwards. All prices are recommended retail prices excluding VAT. Subject to change.
