Strong, precise and fast 06 January 2016

Bosch Power Tools has launched the GBM 13-2 RE Professional – a new high performance drill for faster drilling progress and precision results.

With its 750W motor, as well as a higher no load speed of 3,000rpm in the second speed setting, the GBM 13-2 RE Professional enables much faster drilling progress than the previous 550W model. Furthermore, the tool is more compact and provides better handling thanks to its soft grip. Users whose daily work involves pre-drilling and drilling lots of holes can therefore achieve even more precise results.
Thanks to its two speed gearbox and spindle speed preselector, the GBM 13-2 RE Professional is designed for a wide range of applications and for drilling in steel and wood. It is suitable for a variety of trades – for skilled workers in the metalworking and mechanical engineering sector, for carpenters and roofing contractors, as well as for installers working in the sanitary, heating and air conditioning sector.
For consistent levels of precision even in demanding applications, Bosch now also offers a precision chuck in addition to its quick action and keyed chucks. This chuck has an additional clamping ring, which reliably holds the drill in place even in demanding applications, such as drilling steel with the maximum diameter of 13mm. The tool also features a mechanical overload coupling for maximum control in any application. If the drill jams in metal or in a hard object, the motor cuts out. This minimises unwanted rotation of the drill and protects the user.
“GBM 13-2 RE Professional excels in daily use due to a rugged metal gear case, a spindle collar and a 4m long cable, and therefore has a long useful life and is comfortable to handle.”
