...taking tool control to a new dimension
The world’s first cordless compact router in the professional market and brand-new from Bosch, this exciting model features excellent ergonomics and safety, including drop detection. It also benefits from long runtime and lifetime, thanks to brushless motor technology.
In addition, optimised ergonomics allow for one-handed use, and with an extremely low size and weight it features a uniquely small grip circumference and ideal hand positioning. You can also expect safe and comfortable tool guidance, thanks to a new bit-to-tool formation and enlarged footplate contact surface, as well as perfect depth control, with smooth and fast macro depth adjustment, easy fine adjustment, and lockable depth settings. Health and safety considerations have also been factored in, thanks to a drop detection sensor system that shuts off the tool if it falls, and finger barriers prevent unintentional contact with running bits.
As well as all this, there is a high-powered, highly energy-efficient brushless EC motor; spindle lock for easy tool-less bit change; compatibility with the Bosch accessories range, including ∅8 mm, ∅6 mm and 1/4in collets; and this tool is also fully compatible with the comprehensive Bosch 12V Li-ion power tool range.
The new GKF 12 V-8 Professional Compact Router is available from October from specialist retailers with an RRP from £166.80.
Thanks to BOSCH for the update.
