    I figured with WOC next week, news about upcoming Bosch Tool releases for 2019 will soon start coming out. So post up the info on the new tools being released and lets start the discussion.

    Like the idea of the X-Lock Interface for grinders. Making it easier to change out grinding wheels or flap discs sounds sweet.

    I just had this thought:

    Most people who work in metal fab shops have several grinders on hand. Each loaded with something different. With the X-lock I wonder if they will sell less grinders?

    They really have to be kidding with the tool names, Bosch deccided to continue with the Freak type names and gave every new tool a new name. LOL

    yeah I gree there is a lot of cool stuff in the pipeline for NA but they went a bit overboard on the “Freak” type names for them.

    HAHAHAHA The FREAKy SURGEON and a STRONG ARM GOON HITMAN

    MEGAWATT is definitely a response to Milwaukee’s FUEL and Ridgid’s OCTANE!

    Yeah, the names are way over the top. But I was happy to see a cordless miter saw and a new brushless circular saw. Those have both been long overdue. I can’t wait to hear more about their specs and see some comparisons to other tools already out on the market. I wonder if they’ll come out with a cordless table saw soon, or if they’re waiting on something (like a retooled Reaxx or something?)

    Definitely good to see some new tools coming from Bosch. With the names it seems Bosch is changing its approach to the market. Refreshing!

    It said the MegaWatt Crew came to Earth from a meteor explosion LOL.

    Is there some sort of Avengers theme here?

    I am interested in the 6″ small angle grinder. That one fitted with a cutting dust shroud may allow me to cut into 2″ thick plaster walls and ceiling. Most likely with an X-lock mounting though.

    The HELL-ION max charger is 16amps? It needs 16amps so you need a 20A receptacle to charge?

    To me it looks they are going after the younger buyer that wants a tool with a cool name.I’m just happy that that for 2019 they have a few more tools coming to NA. The line-up is below. Somebody worked overtime on the nicknames. The new Charger looks nice. Some of the tools are already out like the “The Freak” and “The Misfit” but others are new.

    Very interesting approach, I don’t have a problem with it, and I know that somewhere on this forum there was a discussion about how only fanboys knew the model numbers of tools, so maybe having distinct names makes sense. I hope this makes more Bosch tools available in NA, and of course on the redemption list if only to allow more of them out in the market.

    Will
