Bosch Achieves a Lightweight Design with Robust Capabilities in New GCB18V-2N 18V Compact Band Saw
Designed for tight work areas, the new 18V compact band saw is up to 60 percent lighter and 40 percent more compact than standard deep-cut band saws.
MOUNT PROSPECT, Ill. (Aug. 6, 2020) – Enhance your ability to make clean, precise cuts in tight workspaces, overhead, or in corners with Bosch’s new GCB18V-2N 18V Compact Band Saw.
With a new lightweight design, this cutting-edge power tool is only 7.3 pounds, yet built to deliver an impressive cut rate of 530 surface feet per minute. The GCB18V-2N is equipped with a robust motor that saves users time by creating clean cuts (with fewer sparks) on a variety of materials while also requiring minimal rework for burrs or tempering colors. Slice through common-size materials including conduit, uni-strut, threaded rod, copper, black pipe and more while yielding up to 2-1/2 inches on a single pass.
The GCB18V-2N is also easy to use, offering a center-placed auxiliary handle and soft-grip main handle for greater control as professionals maneuver the tool. They can even illuminate their cutting line for increased precision using a built-in LED light.
A new addition to the Bosch 18V cordless offering, this band saw is ideal for professional MEP and mechanical ductwork (HVAC) contractors, mechanical sprinkler fitters, mechanical equipment installers, as well as plumbing and electrical contractors.
“With this band saw, we set out to deliver the same level of functionality and power that we promise in every innovative Bosch product tool within a flexible, compact design,” said Bosch Power Tools product manager Mitch Burdick. “We are continuing to expand our 18V cordless portfolio and we’re confident this compact band saw will be an asset to professionals seeking a lightweight option that does not compromise precise cutting capabilities even in tight, constrictive areas.”
The dynamic GCB18V-2N also offers a tool-free blade guard and tool-free blade change, protecting the blade from debris and facilitating easy access for blade installation or removal.
