Any of you ever have experience with Bosch’s production air tools line?

Personally I have not. I have a compressor. Maybe I
should look into it. Thanks for the linkApril 21, 2013 at 6:42 am #22255
I didn’t know that Bosch made production air tools. I don’t think they would be that practical in my shop but I’m sure in very large shops they would be.

Yeah I didn’t figure that small shops would be using them, but I imagine they are quite the tools!
John SApril 21, 2013 at 7:30 am #22265
I don’t think you will find anyone on this site that uses these tools. From what I understand, production tools are very specific, I personally need a more versatile tool for a variety of tasks.April 21, 2013 at 7:37 am #22268
I think you’re right Brian about needing tools to be more versatile, especially in a one man shop. I would never use an air drill in my shop for example because cordless is just so much more convenient and versatile, you don’t need to be close to a compressor or an outlet to use it.

Cordless drills are great for versatility. Unless you start making prefab cabinets, air tools are for mechanics.April 21, 2013 at 1:41 pm #22289jkirkModeratorhalifax, nova scotia
its not really surprising really, they already make power tools and since they also make parts for vehicles why wouldnt they make tools for autoshops to use

I think they need to start making hand tools, everyone else does.April 21, 2013 at 6:09 pm #22297jkirkModeratorhalifax, nova scotia
i can see it happening. for all we know it might be in development as we speak

Yes and yes – I would love to see Bosch hand tools. They are definitely late to the game if they are thinking about it
John SApril 22, 2013 at 6:55 am #22345
I wonder how profitable a hand tool line would be for a company like Bosch. I think it would be great to see some Bosch hand tools though. I think brand loyalty and brand reputation would play a big part in coming out with a hand tool line. People that already know that Bosch makes great tools would be inclined to buy hand tools made by them, I know I would.

I was unaware of Bosh’s service air tools. They’ll have a task comparing with Ingersol-Rand though. Bosh also has a line of OTC branded automotive tools and equipment that’s good stuff.April 25, 2013 at 9:44 am #22693
Dan – I think Bosch would probably try to partner with a company and just rebrand, rather than manufacturing from scratch. Or I suppose they could purchase a company and then “rebrand”… both of which I am sure are no small undertakings
John SApril 25, 2013 at 12:29 pm #22721
I think you’re right John. It would be nice to see a hand tool line to compete with the new DeWalt hand tools and other manufacturers that have come out with some.

Yeah!! Thanks for joining the bandwagon! Let’s start a petition!!

I saw a review recently on a new 23 gauge pin nailer from Bosch. Received a good review. Was not available at my local Menards though.January 12, 2014 at 9:10 pm #email@example.comProOwatonna, MN - Minnesota
I would guess that the air tools are part of their automotive service grroup. They recent bought a local company that males all sorts of tools for the automotive industry. They have rebranded all of the tools from OTC brand to Bosch.January 13, 2014 at 1:08 am #77621Calidecks64ProAnaheim Hills, Cali
Are you sure those are available in the US? Looks like something you would see that’s typically sold in Europe.January 13, 2014 at 10:06 am #77683MKE_VoltageModeratorSaint Francis, WI
I think they need to start making hand tools, everyone else does.
I agree 100% with this. Bosch excels in ergonomics and design so it would be a natural fit to get into the hand tool game.
I haven’t got into pneumatic tools but I can imagine in a production shop they would be advantageous since I bet they have a much longer life.
