Mount Prospect, Ill., June 27, 2019 – The Bosch Freak, half impact driver, half impact wrench, now offers even more power as the Bosch GDX18V-1800C, delivering 1,800 In.-Lbs. of max torque. This a versatile tool that delivers results: A 1/4 In. quick-change hex shank holder with Power Groove to secure bits combines with a 1/2 In. square drive impact wrench for sockets.

The updated Freak features Bluetooth® connectivity, which connects the tool to the free Bosch Toolbox App (available at the Apple App Store® or the Google Play® Store), on a connected device to customize settings and provide detailed feedback. The optional GCY30-4 Connectivity Tool Module must be installed to use the app.

Driven by an efficient, maintenance-free EC Brushless motor, the Bosch Freak supplies plenty of fastener-tightening force. Bosch’s hammer-and-anvil system delivers maximum impact energy and performance to handle the toughest concrete-, wood- and metal-fastening tasks on the jobsite.

“Trade professionals love the idea of a tool that delivers on the promise of two-in-one performance,” said Theron Sherrod, product manager, Bosch Power Tools. “The Bosch GDX18V-1800C, the Freak, offers users professional quality in an impact driver and an impact wrench that brings jobsite-ready torque and speed. This is a two-jobs-in-one tool that won’t disappoint even the most exacting pro user.”

The Bosch Performance Control System allows users to adjust tool speed/torque with the push of a button to match the tool to the application. In addition, the 18V Freak impact tool offers users the best in flexibility and eliminates the hassle of using hex shank adapters. Quickly and seamlessly switch from a 1/4 In. quick-change hex shank to a 1/2 In. square drive for two tools in one package.

The Bosch Freak benefits from the power and productivity of 21700 Lithium-ion cell technology, which provides a battery that’s more powerful. This advanced cell technology is incorporated in Bosch CORE18V 4.0 Ah batteries, which brings all of the capability of a two-layer 4.0 Ah battery into a smaller, lighter package. The 21700 cell introduces greater capacity in a pack that’s only slightly larger than previous generation single-layer batteries.

With weight of only 2.6 Lbs. (tool only), the Freak impact driver provides easy maneuverability. It features a soft slim-grip handle and non-slip housing for secure handling and an LED light system for maximum illumination, even in the darkest corners.

Bosch-exclusive Electronic Cell Protection (ECP) and Electronic Motor Protection (EMP) combine to help protect the tool and battery from overheating and overload conditions. The Bosch GDX18V-1800CN comes with a 4x bit holder, four bit tips and a belt clip.
