Grinders to deliver fast removal of the toughest material

Tough applications such as grinding welding seams, cutting pipe edges, polishing metal surfaces and removing rust can be done in the quickest time with the Bosch GGS range of professional grinding tools.
Bosch Power Tools SA senior brand manager Campbell Mhodi explains that the GGS 18 H and the GGS 8 SH deliver high performance, safety and convenience. “They are well-matched for retail, maintenance, construction, heating, ventilation, and air conditioning industries.”

The GGS 18 H weighs 3 kg has a 1050 W motor, while the GGS 8 SH, which weighs 4 kg, has a 1200 W motor for high performance. Both of the grinders boast a lock off switch, which prevents unintended activation of the tool. The new GGS 18 H grinder features a 10 mm collet chuck, for multiple accessories and applications. The heat insulation handle on the sleeves provides good guidance and it is designed for left-handed use too.

The ergonomically-shaped GGS 8 SH straight grinder, with a no-load speed rating of 8 000 rpm, delivers a high removal rate. The SDS quick locking nut on the tool ensures quick and tool-free change of accessories. The tool comes with cut out carbon brushes for a high level of motor protection. It also boasts a triple-control safety switch and restart protection to prevent automatic start-up after power outages.
