...a unique new experience in woodwork tool handling
This new compact planer is brand-new from Bosch and is uniquely small and light in appearance, similar in size to equivalent hand tools. Featuring excellent ergonomic design compact, it is easy to guide with one hand and also benefits from long runtime and lifetime, thanks to brushless motor technology.
Optimised ergonomics allow for one-handed use, and with a small grip circumference, the compact planer features ideal hand position and a deep balance point. There is also a smooth and easy planing depth adjustment, which is optimised for depths up to 1mm.
The GHO 12 V-20 benefits from a high-powered, highly energy-efficient brushless EC motor, as well as high-quality, durable components, including a machined planer housing made from a single aluminium block. Also included is switchable dust extraction to the left or right, depending on planing direction, and it can also be used with a dust bag. Additional features include integral inlay to hold a second planing knife; perfect fit with the Bosch accessories range (56mm knife); and it is also fully compatible with the comprehensive Bosch 12V Li-ion power tool range.
The new GHO 12 V-20 Professional Compact Planer will be available in October from specialist retailers with an RRP from £226.80.
Thanks to BOSCH for the update.
