New Bosch Lightweight 11320VS SDS-Plus® Chipping Hammer
Offers Highest Removal Rate Remodelers and Contractors Appreciate Hardest Hitting Tool In Category Mount Prospect, Ill., Winter 2004 -General contractors, remodelers demolition professionals and more will appreciate the new 11320VS 3kg SDS-plus® Chipping Hammer from Bosch Power Tools and Accessories, a division of the Robert Bosch Tool Corporation. Harnessing its storied hammer heritage, Bosch yet again introduced the hardest hitting SDS-plus chipping hammer boasting the fastest removal rate on the market. In a growing renovators' market, the launch of the 11320VS couldn't be better timed. While combination hammers have often served as a lightweight alternative to full-fledged chipping and demolition hammers, they aren't designed for constant chipping. But the 11320VS is, and with the appropriate accessory, it offers professionals the highest removal rate of any hammer its size. For applications including tile removal, left over concrete, plaster, mortar or adhesive removal, laying open concrete reinforcements, grooving for electrical, or cleaning joints, the 11320VS has no equivalent. The chipping hammer's powerful 6.5 Amp motor produces up to 3,500 BPM at 3.2 ft./lbs. per impact. At only 7.9-pounds, this lightweight tool offers the best power to weight ratio in its class, truly the biggest punch. By incorporating the next generation design of the industry standard SDS-plus Bit System, users are guaranteed tool-free bit changes with auto bit locking, dust protection and maximum impact energy transfer. Compared to other systems, the 11320VS' bit holder system's life is considerably longer with substantially more efficient internal chisel shank guidance and better shank centering that would be normally worn down by friction in past designs. The 11320VS' specially engineered impact mechanism also makes the chipping and chiseling process more efficient by offering a smooth progression between no-load and hammering modes providing superior tool control for easier positioning and precision chiseling. This chipping hammer also features the Bosch Vario-Lock(TM) system so users can turn the bit 360-degrees to one of 12 positions for comfort and ease of use. The variable speed trigger provides excellent control, and a recessed lock-on button located at the trigger switch allows the user to lock the tool on for extended use. Cushioned soft grip provides shock and vibration absorption while soft start offers optimal control. And service modules make brush or cord changes exceptionally easy. Every 11320VS comes with a brand new Bosch HS1465 Tile Chisel. Specially designed to easily penetrate underneath tiles, it offers 140-percent faster removal rate than standard chisels and reduces breakage for quicker clean-up. Overall, with the right chisel accessory, the entire system is the most efficient on the market.
