Industry's First Electronic Kickback Protection For Grinders in Cutoff Applications


Two new upgraded small angle grinders from Bosch Power Tools and Accessories – 5-inch 1803EVS and 6-inch 1806E – feature the industry's first Electronic Kickback Protection technology, which shuts the tool off should the wheel get in a bind situation. Furthermore, Bosch also added Restart Protection, a feature designed to prevent grinders left in the "on" position from catching users by surprise when the power supply is interrupted. From metal working to concrete & masonry, from cut-off to grinding and finishing applications, professionals are more confident with innovative, powerful and long-lasting Bosch grinders.Bosch Electronic Kickback Protection provides users with enhanced confidence without sacrificing grinding efficiency and productivity. Innovative electronics monitor the tool for a rapid slow down in RPM, for example, a wheel binding in material. In this condition, the electronics would shut the tool off, minimizing the effect of the tool kicking out and back towards the user. Once the user regains control of the grinder, they should inspect the wheel for damage. If none is found, they would simply turn the switch to "off" and then back "on" to return to work.Other competitive solutions, such as mechanical clutches, allow the wheel to slip as a way to reduce kickback situations. However, the users still need to regain control while the tool is running at capacity. Additionally, in heavy grinding applications, the clutch can inadvertently engage; thus lowering grinding productivity when material removal needs to be maximized.Restart Protection provides professional users with one less worry in the busy shop and jobsite environment. In the event the slide switch of either the 1803EVS or 1806E is slid into the "on" position while unplugged or the power source is interrupted while in use, the tool will remain shut off until the user actively switches the grinder "off" and then back "on" again. Restart Protection prevents the startling effects of an unexpected grinder activation, as well as prevents grinders from skating across the floor causing damage to the tool or injury to those nearby. The 5-inch 1803EVS small angle grinder replaces the previous generation 1703EVS model. The variable speed capability (2,800-11,000 RPM) of the 1803EVS enables stone masons, tuck pointers and even metal workers to take control of their work.The 6-inch 1806E small angle grinder replaces the previous generation 1706E model. At 12 AMP and 9300 RPM, the 1806E is the perfect all around grinder for mechanical contractors, fabrication shops, road construction crews and even general contractors who need more power for heavy duty applications and 6-inch wheels to maximize depth of cut and grinding productivity. Combined with the new Electronic Kickback and Restart Protection, Bosch continues its position as the world's leading grinder manufacturer.
