Bosch ups drill speed


BOSCH Power Tools has unveiled a 7 kg hammer drill, which it claims has a drilling speed 33 per cent faster than its predecessor and 20 per cent faster than the rest of its class.

The GBH 7-46 DE uses bits up to 46 mm in diameter and can create up to 13 J of impact force or 15 J for chiselling, using a turbo power switch.

Bosch has also developed a laser rangefinder with a Bluetooth capability to allow measurements to be quickly developed into a quotation via a laptop or PDA.

The DLE150 Connect measures with millimetre accuracy up to a range of 150 m and allows volumes, areas and indirect lengths to be calculated.
