Bosch GDR 18 V-160 Professional impact driver

Enabling trade professionals to raise their game without incurring extra spend, Bosch Professional brings the GDR 18 V-160 Professional impact driver to the marketplace. Top of its class, the new product leads the industry’s 18V cordless professional impact driver class on price-to-performance ratio.

Users benefit from an impressive 160Nm maximum torque, with variable speed control – up to a rapid 2,800rpm – and an impact rate that reaches 3,200bpm. The result is fast and easy work progress, even in heavy applications.

Weighing just 1.37kg, including the 2.0Ah battery, and a head length of 150mm, the impact driver can be used with little effort. Its compact size is ideal for operation in tight spaces and when working overhead. The ergonomic design features a slim handle, whose 110mm circumference and soft-grip covering add further comfort and control. A handy belt clip, a screwdriver bit and an LED light for better vision in dark workplaces are included in the standard specification.

Robust construction and easy serviceability, together with proven performance capabilities, make this an ideal tool for a wide variety of tradespeople. It is aimed at trade sectors like carpentry, building and electrical, as well as heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC).

Specific applications range from wood screwing and drilling to installing and maintaining HVAC systems, assembling wheels, constructing metal and erecting high racking. The driver comes with a quarter-inch hex bit holder and shank, compatible with a multitude of accessories.

As part of the Bosch Flexible Power System, the Bosch GDR 18 V-160 Professional impact driver is fully compatible with the comprehensive Bosch range of 18V power tools, chargers and batteries.

It is now available from specialist retailers in a choice of packages. The GDR 18 V-160 can be supplied in a Bosch L-BOXX carrying case, without batteries, at recommended retail price of £123.09. A kit containing the tool, two 2.0Ah batteries and a charger, in an L-BOXX, sells at an RRP of £219.99. These prices are exclusive of VAT and are subject to change.
