The Latest and Greatest Tools from Bosch

Bosch is proud to announce the arrival of their new 1/2-inch Dual Torque Hammer Drill. Bosch built this hammer drill around a high-output, 8.5-amp motor. It has a dual mode selector, which allows easy conversion between rotation and hammer-drill modes.

Its patented rotating brush plate doubles brush life and allows equal power in reverse. It has a 2- speed gear box and a 360-degree auxiliary handle with a built-in depth gauge. Its ambidextrous lock-on button and 12-foot power cord allow added user reach and convenience with less fatigue.

The Bosch 1/2-inch hammer drill, model 1199VSRK retails for $159.

Bosch has recently released its new "Airsweep" 13 Gallon Wet/Dry Vacuum Cleaner with Pulse-Clean™ Electromagnetic filter-cleaning system. The system has elevated dual filter cartridges which are shaken to remove dust, while maintaining maximum suction power. This feature can be activated maunally or automatically- great for when you're working far from the unit, like when working on a scaffold. With 4 different modes of operation, activation by attached power tool, extremely thorough fine-dust filtration capabilities (which capture 99.93% particles of 3.0 microns and larger), large wheels, locking front casters, and a 6.5 HP / 11.1-amp motor with soft-start and bypass cooling , this vacuum is an excellent tool to have around for any project.

Bosch's new Airsweep wet/dry vacuum, model 3931, retails for $399 (list $549).
