World’s most powerful demolition hammer from Bosch

The world’s most powerful electric breaker has been launched by Bosch for demolition work in concrete, stone, or asphalt. The Bosch GSH 27 VC Professional has an impact energy of 69 joules, with an average material removal rate of 3.2 tons an hour, a 50% increase over the previous model.

Another major advantage of this breaker that boosts its efficiency is its low vibration of 8 m/s2, due to the vibration-reduced hammer mechanism and decoupled handles, Campbell Mhodi, Bosch Professional Power Tools Senior Brand Manager, points out.

This means that the permitted trigger time of the tool is therefore more than three hours per working day. “All these benefits provide professional tradespeople with fast work progress, as well as more comfortable working conditions, with reduced vibration, even in the toughest applications,” Mhodi comments.

The Bosch GSH 27 VC also sets new standards with regard to lifetime and tool handling. Durability and superior lifespan are guaranteed thanks to the robust construction, which uses high-quality aluminium and steel components.

A brand-new feature is the anti-slip surface on the housing cover, which means that this 27 kg breaker can be propped up against a wall conveniently and safely, or against suitable objects between operations, without any danger of falling over.

“This saves the user the extra expended effort of having to lay down and lift up the tool repeatedly,” Mhodi explains. The tool’s low centre of gravity and ergonomically-shaped, soft-grip handles ensure optimum tool handling.

Optional accessories for the Bosch GSH 27 VC include the new SDS-max RTec Sharp flat chisel and SDS-max pointed chisel. The particularly long, self-sharpening cutting edge of these chisels has been optimised even further for greater material removal in the shortest period possible.

In addition, the high material removal rate is guaranteed to remain unchanged over the entire lifetime of the chisels, which translates into highly-efficient operation without time-consuming resharpening or downtime.
