Bosch Power Tools Updates Tuckpointing Grinder with Focus on Power, Durability, and Dust Capture Capabilities
The new high-torque grinder significantly boosts the power over the previous model. Plus, its specially designed, spring-loaded guard maximizes dust capture.

MOUNT PROSPECT, Ill. (Aug. 26, 2021) Bosch Power Tools, a global leader for power tools and power tool accessories, today announced a new version of its 5-inch high-powered, high torque dedicated tuckpointing grinder and dust guard. The model GWS13-52TG is designed to replace the 1775E.

This new high-torque grinder with a dust guard is designed specifically for tuckpointing. It significantly boosts the power over the previous model from 8.5-amp motor to a 13-amp motor, producing 9,300 RPM.

The GWS13-52TG is engineered for high performance and improved durability with a metal guard mounting flange collar, dust protection with directed airflow and an enclosed spring-loaded guard for maximum dust capture. The new model is ideal for tuckpointers for the removal of brick mortar.

Features include:

  • Motor is protected from dust and debris with epoxy-coated field windings and four-stage dust seals protect the gears and help ensure longer tool life
  • Constant electronic monitoring provides level operation and reliable speed under load
  • A viewing window on the dust guard makes it easy to see the cutting line
  • 1-3/8 inch dust port is designed to accommodate Bosch vacuum hose nozzles, but adapters (sold separately) are available to fit other vacuum hose nozzles
  • Works with Bosch PRO+GUARD Dust Solutions, an end-to-end dust-collection system that helps users move toward OSHA silica dust compliance
  • The tool-free guard adjustment allows full access to the diamond blade for quick and easy blade changes
  • The specially designed, spring-loaded guard maximizes dust capture during mortar or concrete cutting applications, even during plunge cuts
