Bosh released five new multi-cutters

Bosch is introducing five new models to its range of professional multi-cutters. There are three professional corded tools, the GOP 55-36 Professional, GOP 40-30 Professional and GOP 30-28 Professional and in the professional cordless range, the GOP 18V-28 Professional and GOP 10.8V-28 Professional.New Bosch Multicutter

All of these are equipped with the new Starlock accessory mounting system, which has been developed by Bosch in collaboration with Fein. Starlock is a uniform standard mounting system, which allows users to snap accessories quickly and easily onto their oscillating power tools. Using this system, Bosch makes it possible to change accessories tool-free and quickly within only three seconds, greatly reducing downtime caused by swapping out accessories

The five new models fall into three performance classes: Starlock, StarlockPlus and StarlockMax. These classes are used to help select accessories that match the machine’s power – for increased longevity of both tools and accessories. Starlock tools have 32 accessories to choose from, StarlockPlus increases this to 36 and StarlockMax offers the widest range of 48 accessories. All Starlock accessories are also backward compatible with existing oscillating power tools. Starlock offers unique new accessories including precision plunge saw blades and sanding fingers.

Five new professional multi-cutters from Bosch

Corded models: The GOP 55-36 Professional is in the StarlockMax performance class. With a power of 550 watts, it is the most powerful tool in its class, designed for working on demanding tasks, such as creating recesses and slots when renovating roof trusses.

The GOP 40-30 Professional, with a power of 400 watts, is in the StarlockPlus performance class. It has a smaller oscillation angle for precision, and thanks to an integrated LED light, it is ideal for working in darker areas, for example installing kitchen base cabinets.

The GOP 30-28 Professional, also in the StarlockPlus performance class, has over 300 watts of power. It has many flexible uses, for example for routing joints on wall and floor tiles in renovation applications.

Cordless Models:The GOP 18V-28 Professional cordless multi-cutter, a StarlockPlus tool, provides almost the same power as the GOP 40-30 Professional ‒ just without a cord.

The 10.8-volt tool, the GOP 10.8V-28 Professional, is in the Starlock class and is recommended for small adaptations ‒ for example sawing down that last troublesome corner so that a built-in cupboard fits exactly into an alcove.

The cordless multi-cutters provide tradespeople with a great deal of flexibility. They are both fitted with a brushless EC motor which is robust and requires no maintenance.

Amazing ‘Snap-In’ system for tool-free and quick accessory change

The GOP 55-36 Professional and GOP 40-30 Professional multi-cutters and the GOP 18V-28 Professional cordless multi-cutter is special because they incorporate the new ‘Snap-In’ system. ‘Snap-In’ functions in a similar manner to a ski binding: put the accessory in position, press the Starlock mounting system onto it and the process is completed – the user can get started immediately. To release the accessory, all the user has to do is press the lever on the tool head.

The Bosch GOP 55-36 Professional, GOP 40-30 Professional and GOP 30-28 Professional multi-cutters will be available from specialist retail outlets from April 2016 onwards. The GOP 18V-28 Professional and GOP 10.8V-28 Professional cordless versions will follow in autumn. Each Bosch multi-cutter will be provided in a box with a Starlock accessory of the relevant performance class or as an L-Boxx version.
