The new combination also features the widely successful cordless 18-volt Brute-Tough™ hammer drill/driver, 6-1/2-inch circular saw, reciprocating saw and flashlight. Backed by the industry’s most reliable tool protection plan, PROVANTAGE™, professionals and serious users alike can be confident their tools will be ready when they need them Super-charged with two new BLUECORE batteries, users can expect 50-percent more battery life for the newest combo kit.
Positioned between individual cells, BLUECORE cooling rods absorb and dissipate potentially damaging heat within the battery for extended cycle life – the number of charges each battery will hold. The addition of the new 30-minute dual-bay charger, which also utilizes a micro-processor to read the internal battery temperature and optimize the charging process, replaces the formerly standard one-hour single-bay charger.
Now, users can charge two batteries simultaneously and in half the time. All BLUECORE batteries and 30-minute chargers are compatible with current and previous generation tools, batteries and chargers. Professionals across all trades will recognize the highly popular Bosch Brute-Tough 18-volt cordless hammer drill/driver. Perfect for drilling in wood, metal, masonry and light concrete, the tool has proven itself over and over to survive the rigors of any jobsite. And now, Bosch improved the tool with new carbide teeth for extra holding power and a Hammer On/Off Ring, which easily turns the hammer function on and off without the need to change clutch settings. For the professional, time is always money.
The kit’s 6-1/2-inch cordless circular saw offers unique capabilities, such as a 50-degree bevel to cut 2x2 material and a 45-degree positive stop for quick and accurate bevel adjustments at the most common cuts. At 3,600 RPM, the tool offers more than enough power for any professional in search of a solid cordless circular saw. With its dual stroke function – 1-1/4-inch stroke for fast aggressive cuts and 3/4-inch stroke for plunge and precision cuts – the Bosch 18-volt reciprocating saw offers features engineered to maximize the tools use in any situation.
Furthermore, tool-less blade change makes the process fast and easy, while a push-button foot adjustment allows professionals to utilize the entire blade or adapt the tool for various applications. And a variable speed trigger, which engages up to 2,300 strokes per minute, gives the user complete control over the tool. Rounding out the kit is an 18-volt 2-position pivoting head flashlight. With an adjustable focus beam and the ability to stand upright for hands-free work, this component is always handy in dim working environments and comes with an extra bulb stored in the unit’s handle.
