Small screwdriver, big impact: The Ixo is back in classic green and now gets even more out of all DIYers' projects. The seventh generation of the cult screwdriver shines with 20 percent more power thanks to an optimized motor and a maximum torque of 5.5 Nm. This makes it even easier to set up prefabricated furniture or the next creative project by hand. Thanks to the longer battery runtime due to a 2.0 Ah rechargeable battery, DIYers are now in the position to process up to 190 screws quite easily with a single battery charge – which is almost double as many as with the previous generations of the screwdriver.

A screwdriver for all occasions

The new model also offers improvements when it comes to handling. The new LED light ring ensures a consistently clear view without any shadows when screwdriving; at the same time, the Ixo always fits well in the hand thanks to its ergonomic shape and its extensive soft grip. The optimized cap concept of the screwdriver is particularly user-friendly. One moment still screwdriving around the corner and the next lighting the grill or opening the wine bottle – exchanging the Ixo adapters has never been so quick and easy. The possible applications of the cult screwdriver are as varied as the DIYers and their projects themselves. The Ixo Collection therefore offers a wide range of adapters for drilling, cutting, and screwdriving, as well as for use as a barbecue fan, corkscrew, or spice mill.

Surprise for creative DIYers

The seventh generation also holds quite a special surprise for Ixo lovers. Bosch will allow users to individually personalize their box from October. Whether as a present for a special someone or to give yourself a little treat – the personal design of the Ixo storage box makes each Ixo unique. The box can be designed either by uploading one's own photo or by selecting a suggested motif at www.bosch-diy.com/shop. In addition, a person's own text can also be inserted.

New Ixo generation sets an example for greater sustainability

DIYers can also take pleasure in the sustainable product concept in addition to the improved power and more comfortable handling compared with the last Ixo generation. So, the outer box including inlay consists of over 90 percent recycled plastic. Due to the overall smaller packaging, material is saved, and waste reduced. The Ixo itself also consists partially of recycled plastic, and simultaneously preserves the customary stability and robustness for all applications. Bosch is systematically working to improve the sustainability of the entire value chain. A special team was created for this purpose. It continuously examines and implements suitable measures throughout the world, for example regarding recycling of packaging and power tools. The main objectives are to reduce the CO2 footprint of products in the long term and promote recycling management.

The seventh-generation Ixo will be available from September 2022. All prices are recommended retail prices including VAT.
