For efficient working on concrete or plaster: New pointed and spade chisels for professionals


· Constantly high material removal rate and long service life

· No resharpening required

Bosch is launching two new chisel types onto the market for professionals: an SDS-plus spade chisel and a pointed chisel with SDS-max or hexagonal shank. What both of these accessories have in common is a particularly long service life and a constantly high material removal rate.

Bosch has doubled the spade length of the new SDS-plus spade chisel in comparison to its predecessor model. The flat spade of the new chisel with innovative cutting geometry sharpens itself during work.

The new models of pointed chisel have a particularly long, star-shaped cutting edge, which also sharpens itself during work. This saves the user downtimes otherwise caused by time-consuming resharpening. The tried and tested reflection element R-Tec of the SDS-max pointed chisel also adds to the material removal rate: it converts the rebound energy into impact energy. The pointed chisel with hexagonal shank – available as 28 and 30 millimeter hexagon – together with the new Bosch Demolition Hammer GSH 16 is an ideal combination for the toughest demands on the construction site.

The new spade and pointed chisels will be available at retail outlets from September 2006 onwards.
