Bosch Mini Grinder GWS 8-14 Professional: World champion in service life


· “Champion” motor ensures long life and lots of power

· Lowest investment costs per working hour

The new professional Mini Grinder GWS 8-14 Professional from Bosch is the world champion in terms of service life. This has been discovered by the independent institute SLG in Hartmannsdorf, Germany, after conducting extensive tests. The best competitor tool managed only approximately two thirds as many working hours as the Bosch Mini Grinder. When calculated by the working hour, this means that the Bosch Grinders require the lowest investment costs.

All Bosch Mini Grinders GWS 8-14 Professional are equipped with the new “Champion” motors. They achieve their exceptionally long life thanks to effective heat dissipation. Extra air inlets and a special coolant bore, which guides the air directly to the hottest part of the motor, guarantee a high level of protection against overload. What’s more, the improved heat resistance and new artificial graphite carbon brushes ensure a long motor life. The Bosch tools are also perfectly protected against metal dust due to the optimized insulation of the electrical components.

In addition to the long service life, another advantage of the Bosch Mini Grinders is their high performance capability. The motors with rated inputs between 800 and 1400 watts guarantee rapid work progress.

For safety during work, the tools have a distortion-resistant protective guard. The top models GWS 11 Professional and GWS 14 Professional are equipped with additional safety features: the “KickBack Stop”, which protects the user against dangerous recoil, and the restart protection. Bosch equips its mini grinders for the professional user with a “Vibration Control” handle as standard. Vibration Control reduces the vibrations transferred to the user’s hand by up to 70 percent, making work less tiring and easier on the user’s joints.

The Bosch Group is a leading global manufacturer of automotive and industrial technology, consumer goods, and building technology. In fiscal 2005, some 251,000 associates generated sales of 41.5 billion euros.

The entrepreneurial ownership functions are carried out by Robert Bosch Industrietreuhand KG.
