Bosch 18V Oscillating Multi-Tool GOP18V-34
The new brushless oscillating multi-tool features a StarlockPlus tool-free blade change mechanism, redesigned handle with rotated battery position, and reduced vibration compared to the previous generation tool.
Bosch says that the new model was designed with upgraded user handling, increased cutting performance, and an outstanding blade grip.
The rotated battery attachment allows for easier flush-cutting tasks.
There will be two kit configurations, plus a tool-only option.
Bosch 18V Impact Wrench GDS18V-330PCB25
The new brushless 1/2″ mid-torque impact wrench features a pin detent anvil and delivers up to 330 ft-lbs max fastening torque and 590 ft-lbs max breakaway torque.
It has 3 speed settings – plus the typical variable speed trigger – for controlling max torque and speed.
Bosch 18V Connected Barrel Grip Jig Saw GST18V-60BC
The new 18V brushless Connected barrel-grip jig saw features an adjustable blade guide that minimizes blade deflection during both straight or curved cuts, and 4 orbital modes.
Users can connect to the jig saw via Bluetooth and the Bosch Toolbox App to customize its speeds and to toggle the worklight on and off.
Bosch 18V Connected D-Handle Grip Jig Saw GST18V-60C
The D-handled Connected jig saw is similar to the barrel-grip jig saw, but features the more traditional handle style and a variable speed trigger.
Bosch 18V Barrel Grip Jig Saw GST18V-50BN
This new barrel-grip jig saw has a traditional speed control dial, rather than the user interface or Bluetooth connectivity as with the other models shown above. Bosch says it delivers a corded-equivalent cutting capacity of up to 4.9″ in wood.
Bosch 18V Rivet Tool GRG18V-3600CB24
The new cordless rivet tool can handle a range of aluminum and stainless steel blind rivets in 1/8″, 5/32″, 3/16″, and 1/4″ sizes.
It has a stroke length of up to 0.98″ and delivers 3,595 lbs of pulling force.
Features include a two-mode operation (automatic and manual), balanced handling, and a mandrel collector.
Bosch 18V Angle Grinder GWS18V-10P
The new Bosch 18V brushless 4-1/2″ – 5″ angle grinder features a no-lock-on paddle switch, adjustable tool-free guard, kickback control, and is said to deliver comparable performance to a 10A corded grinder.
It features a tool-free quick-change lock nut (as opposed to an X-Lock accessory interface).
A similar model cordless angle grinder with slide switch (GWS18V-10N) is already available.
Bosch 18V Rotary Hammer GBH18V-22N
The SDS-Plus Bulldog 3/4″ rotary hammer delivers 1.4 ft-lbs of impact energy and features kickback control, an anti-vibration system, and ergonomic design.
It has 3 modes – rotary hammer, rotation-only, and hammer-only.
Dust Extraction System GDE18V12
The new dust extraction system is designed exclusively for the GBH18V-22 Bulldog rotary hammer. It is not included with the rotary hammer, and will be sold separately.
It features a HEPA filter and was designed to help users comply with OSHA silica dust regulations.
The GDE18V12 is powered directly by the GBH18V-22 rotary hammer, and so no additional battery is required.
As it’s electrically connected to the rotary hammer, the dust extractor can be set to provide automatic suction when drilling. There’s a two-second auto power-off delay that starts when the user releases the rotary hammer’s trigger switch.
Bosch 18V Rotary Hammer GBH18V-28CN
Bosch is also launching an SDS-Plus Bulldog 1-1/8″ rotary hammer, delivering 2.6 ft-lbs of impact energy.
Features include a built-in anti-vibration system, kickback control, and Vario-Lock for rotating chisels and similar attachments.
With an optional connectivity module (sold separately), users can connect to the rotary hammer to customize it to one of three working modes – auto, favorite, soft – to suit different jobs.
It’s compatible with the Bosch GDE18V-16 cordless dust-extraction attachment, sold separately.
Bosch 18V Sheet and Detail Sander GSS18V-40
The new cordless sheet orbital sander features ergonomic handling and is said to deliver corded-like power.
It is compatible with interchangeable 1/4 sheet, 1/3 sheet, and detail sanding plates.
From readers’ advisement in the comments, the sander comes with 1/4 sheet, 1/3 sheet, and a detail sanding base (as shown above). Additional detail sanding base plates and backing pads are available separately.
Bosch 18V CORE18V AMPshare 6Ah Battery GBA18V60
Bosch is adding a new 18V CORE18V Li-ion battery with 6Ah charge capacity.
They say it delivers 50% more runtime and 75% more power than their CORE18V 4Ah battery.
It is engineered with two layers of enhanced 21700 cells, and features Bosch Coolpack 2.0 technology, which the brand says helps to extend the battery lifetime.
As with Bosch’s other 18V Li-ion batteries, this one is also compatible with AMPshare-system tools.
Bosch 18V CORE18V 6Ah 1-Battery Starter Kit with Turbo Charger
The new 1-battery starter kit features a CORE18V 6ah battery and Turbo Charger with optional power Boost mode.
Bosch 18V CORE18V 2-Battery Starter Kit
There will also be a new 18V starter kit with charger and (2) 6Ah batteries.
Bosch says that the included BC1880 Fast Charger will deliver 40% faster charging than “Bosch standard 18V chargers with a CORE18V 4Ah battery.”
