Professional Tool Reviews for Pros


Manufacturer: Bosch

Check out the newest Bosch tools including the latest drills, impact drivers, rotary hammers, and accessories. Recent Bosch tool reviews include the Bosch CORE18V battery, Bosch 18V Connected angle grinder, and Bosch 12V cross line laser. We also cover Bosch accessories and their entire lineup of 12V, 18V, and 36V power tools. With Bosch tool reviews, we focus on their strengths—including OSHA-compliant concrete dust removal. The Bosch VAC090A Dust Extractor remains one of our favorites and came in 3rd in our dust extractor shootout. Bosch has a good track record of making tools that perform well. Additionally, they also make tools with great ergonomics. Their batteries have some of the longest shelf lives we’ve experienced among manufacturers. Hands-on Bosch Tool Reviews The following tool reviews include Bosch tools and accessories from every category. If they make it, and it’s a key tool, we’ve likely given it a hands-on tool review.

Bosch Tools Table Saw Lawsuit

Anyone who has used a table saw for any period of time is aware, to some extent at least, of the SawStop table saw and the various legal and patent issues surrounding the existence of a fairly new safety mechanism that promises (and in a large way follows through on) a system to provide unheard of safety with respect to the use of an electric saw. This week, a man who was cut by a miter saw says Robert Bosch Tool Corp. “colluded with its competitors” and lobbied the Consumer Protection Safety Commission to keep “flesh detection and braking technology” from being required on table saws. We beg to differ.

Bosch PS50-2A Multi-X testing

Bosch PS50-2A Multi-X Multi-tool Kit Review

Anyone who uses power tools will respect the Bosch name. When they make a product it typically falls under the category of “hard core professional tool.” That’s a lot of pressure. We (along with their competitors I’m sure) keep waiting for them to slip up and let something squeeze by that doesn’t stand up to the Bosch name. The PS50 12V Max Multi-X Cutting Kit is not that product. It satisfies and does so without wires – a feat uncommon in the world of oscillating multi-tools.

Bosch Full Force Technology finish nailer

Bosch Full Force Technology Pneumatic Nailers

Bosch moves into the area of pneumatics with the introduction of their Full Force Nailers. Theses nailers are a ground up fresh design that utilizes new Bosch technology that makes the tools 10% more powerful and 20% smaller. Along with the new nailers will come a line of matching air compressors.

Bosch 25618 impactor

Bosch 25618 Impact Driver with 1500 in-lbs

Bosch is getting ready to unleash the latest Impact Diver to be added to their Impactor line. This new model will have 1,500 in-lb of torque and will be built on 18V Litheon battery platform. To date this will be the most powerful impact driver that Bosch has to offer and it will rival some of the best offerings from of the competition. You can plan on seeing the new Bosch Model 25618-02 Impactor available on line and in stores soon.

Bosch Blue Granite Drill Bits drilling

Bosch Blue Granite Drill Bits Review

Blue Granite – now that’s a name that instills confidence. Bosch was going for the manly persona when it came up with that one (but what else should we expect from a German company?). Carbide hammer drill bits are for made for one thing: fast impact drilling in concrete, stone, or masonry. Low voltage, high temperature brazing prevents carbide cutting edge from breaking out even when heat builds up during deep drilling. Various usable lengths up to 10″.

New Bosch DAF220 Miterfinder

Bosch DAF220K Miter Finder Preview

Bosch is making a move into the precise measuring and leveling world with the DAF220 Miterfinder. The days of miss cut angles and wasted trim are over. The Bosch DAF220 Miterfinder is like having four tools in one with functions that include an angle finder, cutting calculator, protractor and a level.

Bosch Acquires Freud Accessories

Bosch Acquires Freud Accessories and Diablo

Bosch Power Tools has acquired parts of the Freud Group, particularly their power tool accessories business. In the accessories business, Freud generated sales of 100 million euros in 2007. Bosch has planned acquisition of the four Freud Group manufacturing sites in Italy, as well as of sales companies in North America, China, Italy, and the UK. Bosch feels that the Freud power tool accessories business is an excellent regional and technological addition to Bosch portfolio and the Pozzo family will continue to be involved in the business following the Bosch acquisition.

Bosch PB10-CD Power Box

Bosch PB10-CD PowerBox Jobsite Stereo Review

The Bosch PB10 Power Box Advanced Jobsite Stereo combines many practical (four GFCI protected power outlets) and popular (40 second anti-skip CD player) functions into one package. The radio is suspended inside an aluminum roll cage that is design to withstand a 10 foot job site fall. With large, easy to use buttons and dials, even a gloved hand can make adjustments.

Bosch 1590evsk jig saw

Bosch 1590EVS Jigsaw Review

Bosch really put everything into their 1590EVSK orbital jigsaw. Now, depending on what you do for a living (or in your do-it-yourself project world), a jigsaw may not be your standard go-to tool. However, with 4-stage orbital control, tool-less blade changes & bevel adjustment, and variable speed control with trigger lock, this is a one-stop jigsaw shop. We’ve used lots of jigsaws before, but Bosch’s take on this staple seems to put it on higher ground and leave nearly nothing out of the mix.
