New Bosch Bulldog® Rotary Hammer Offers Extended Brush Life

New Rotary Hammers Last Four Times Longer Than Competition

Mt. Prospect, Ill., September 18, 2003 - Drawing from more than 70 years of hammer manufacturing experience, Bosch Power Tools introduces the 11250VSR, the newest SDS-plus® Rotary Hammer and most durable Bosch Bulldog(tm) ever.

Bosch prides itself knowing that since it introduced the first hand held electric rotary hammer to the world in 1932, it still produces the world's number hammer line with unmatched durability and performance. And with the introduction of the 11250VSR, Bosch carries on this tradition by incorporating its patented rotating brush system. While its primary purpose is to provide users the same level of power in reverse as forward, it also extends the tool's brush life up to four times longer.

Whether series drilling or setting a couple anchors, mechanical contractors, electricians, plumbers and HVAC professionals will appreciate how the 11250VSR performs on the job. This new model offers a larger 6 AMP Bosch built motor. In rotation-only mode, the unit boasts up to 1,350 RPM, while a twist of the dual mode selector to rotary hammer mode offers up to 6,000 BPM and 1.4 foot-pounds of impact energy with each blow. This means much faster drilling in a more compact rotary hammer design.

Designed with the Bosch-invented industry standard SDS-plus tool holder system, the unit offers tool-free bit changes with automatic bit locking, dust protection and the highest impact energy transfer rate a tool holder system can offer. Bosch also offers a full line of the industry's leading SDS-plus carbide rotary hammer bits ranging from 5/32-inch to 1-1/8-inches in diameter, as well as thin wall Speed-CoreTM core bits ranging up to 4-inches in diameter.

Some of the other features that make this tool a standard on the jobsite include an integral clutch that helps minimize torque reaction and a 360-degree auxiliary handle for extra control. The tool's compact ergonomic pistol grip handle includes soft-grip, while its built-in quick-release depth gauge eases the challenge of consistent depth series drilling. Additionally, a variable speed trigger provides more accurate starts, and full power reverse makes removing fasteners or bound bits much easier. And finally, a 13-foot power cord provides added reach and convenience.

Each Bosch 11250VSR 3/4-inch Bulldog SDS-plus Rotary Hammer comes complete with a case, 360-degree auxiliary handle and depth gauge.
