The powerful 36 volt rotary hammers are getting even better: Bosch are replacing their leading models with the new GBH 36 V-LI Plus Professional and the GBH 36 VF-LI Plus Professional. You can choose between the model with fixed chuck - V - and the model with changeable chuck - VF. Both rotary hammers improve on their predecessors by providing more power, a longer lifetime, new convenience features, vibration damping and longer battery runtimes. They will therefore set new standards in the class.

Versatile for applications in tiles, stone, concrete, wood and metal. These new rotary hammers are designed for a broad range of simple to complex tasks, from small drilling applications in tiles or masonry to more extensive chiselling applications. Even when drilling with core cutters up to 82mm to install junction boxes, the high single impact energy combined with the longer battery runtime ensures a fast drilling rate.

Plumbers and heating installers, electricians, facade and scaffold builders, whose jobs require a high level of mobility, can reduce the effort and time setting up with these cordless rotary hammers. For example, the charging time is reduced from 80-35 minutes with the supplied GAL 3680 CV Professional quick charger. They also offer tried-and-tested Bosch features including an LED light to provide good illumination, optimised tool shape to save the user's strength, comfortable softgrip and a better balance due to their L-shaped design.

The GBH 36 V-LI Plus Professional and GBH 36 VF-LI Plus Professional cordless rotary hammers will be available at Bosch stockists from May 2015 onwards.
