Integrated system works with Bosch GBH18V-26 rotary hammer to provide HEPA-filter dust protection when drilling just about anywhere

Mt. Prospect, Ill., June 7, 2017 – For the concrete professional who needs to drill using a rotary hammer often, but can’t be tethered to a dust extraction vacuum – Bosch has a solution for you. The GDE18V-16 Professional dust collector for the Bosch GBH18V-26 rotary hammer enables tradesmen to work in a dust-free, OSHA-compliant environment regardless of the location.

The GDE18V-16 Professional can simply be attached to the rotary hammer when required. It has its own motor that’s supplied with power by the rotary hammer battery. The dust extraction module has an automatic power on/off. It automatically starts at the same time as the rotary hammer and continues to function for two seconds after the drilling operation is ended to ensure optimal dust extraction

The integrated HEPA filter provides reliable dust protection and is extremely easy to empty and clean.

“The GDE18V-16 18-volt HEPA dust collector gives users of the Bosch GBH18V-26 rotary hammer the final piece of an end-to-end dust control system that’s completely housed on the hammer,” said Mike Iezzi, product manager, concrete power tools, BOSCH POWER TOOLS. “We believe this is a solution that many professionals who drill into concrete will find appealing because it offers them more freedom of movement on the jobsite. There are some jobs where being tethered to a vacuum isn’t workable.”

The compatible GBH18V-26 1” 18-volt SDS-plus rotary hammer is the cordless workhorse of any construction site, providing the power and torque to drill and chisel in materials that range from concrete to steel. It delivers 1.9 Ft.-Lbs. of torque in a tool that weighs only 7.7 lbs. The ergonomic L-shape design offers great horizontal power transmission. This is a power tool that will drill longer and hit harder than bigger tools with more weight.
