Four for all use cases: By expanding its current range of vacuum cleaners, Bosch is offering DIYers the perfect tool for every application – from the highperformance wet/dry vacuum cleaner with 1200 watts through to the versatile 12 volt tool. What the corded AdvancedVac 20, UniversalVac 15, EasyVac 3 and the cordless EasyVac 12 have in common: They are small and compact and therefore very handy. All four models can be used without a dust bag. Moreover, the corded tools are provided with elastic bands, which can be used to secure the hose easily and conveniently, and an integrated accessory holder. They can be transported particularly easily and stored away without taking up much space − the required accessories are always to hand. In addition, their scope of delivery includes a universal adapter, which enables connection to every Bosch power tool in the current DIY range. This allows DIYers to extract dust as it is produced during sanding, sawing and routing.

AdvancedVac 20: Powerful wet/dry vacuum cleaner with large container

With 1200 watts, the AdvancedVac 20 is the most powerful of the four new vacuum cleaners. As a wet/dry vacuum cleaner, it is extremely versatile and can also take up large volumes of water – if the washing machine has leaked, for example. Its shock-resistant and non-corrosive container holds up to 13.5 liters of liquid and has a volume of 20 liters. It also has a valve for easily draining off liquid that has been taken up, rollers for convenient transport and stands out from the competition with an anti-static hose. The air flow can be switched from vacuuming to blowing in order to clean hard-to-reach areas. The AdvancedVac 20 also has an automated start/stop mechanism for use in combination with a power tool: The vacuum cleaner starts and stops automatically as soon as the power tool is switched on or off.

UniversalVac 15: Compact and versatile wet/dry vacuum cleaner

The UniversalVac 15 is designed for taking up 8.5 liters of liquid – and with a volume of 15 liters, it is more compact than the AdvancedVac 20. Thanks to rollers and its smaller dimensions, it is particularly easy to transport for use in the garage or on the patio, for example. The wet/dry vacuum cleaner also extracts coarse dirt, while having a shock-resistant and non-corrosive container, as well as a blowing function for cleaning hard-to-reach areas.

EasyVac 3: Dry vacuum cleaner for the workshop

As a dry vacuum cleaner with 700 watts, a container volume of 2.1 liters and an automated start/stop mechanism, the EasyVac 3 is particularly suitable for use in the workshop. It sits conveniently on your workbench. To make it especially handy when combined with a power tool, its dust box is as large as necessary and as compact as possible. DIYers can saw more than 13 meters with a handheld circular saw or depending on the type of sanding paper, they can work with a random orbit sander for up to 180 minutes before having to empty the dust box in a few easy movements. The dust box itself is transparent so that DIYers can always see how full it is.

EasyVac 12: The 2-in-1 vacuum cleaner that gets everywhere

The EasyVac 12 cordless hand-held vacuum cleaner is recommended for quick in-between cleaning and can also be used as a floor vacuum cleaner thanks to an extension tube. It is bagless, extremely compact and, weighing just one kilogram including the 12 volt battery, it is also very light. The EasyVac 12 is quiet and versatile: Its crevice nozzle enables users to clean the gaps between car seats or the keyboard of your PC. Together with the brush nozzle, it can be used to clean furniture carefully. It also has a floor nozzle for use on floors. The EasyVac 12 stands out with a long runtime of 22 minutes per battery charge. 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 DIYers optimum power and maximum runtime for every project and full power until the battery is empty. Other benefits of the EasyVac 12 include a transparent dust box, which can be emptied and replaced in just a few movements, as well as three integrated LEDs, which indicate the battery charge at all times.

The EasyVac 12 is part of the “Power for All“ battery system for DIY and garden tools. Fourteen power tools can currently be operated using the same 12 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. All 10.8 and 12 volt tools and batteries are compatible.

The cordless EasyVac 12 vacuum cleaner is available from now onwards, the corded AdvancedVac 20, UniversalVac 15 and EasyVac 3 vacuum cleaners are available from April 2017 onwards. All prices are recommended retail prices including VAT. Subject to change.
