Best-in-Class Impact Energy Delivers Maximum Productivity


Mt. Prospect, March 12, 2013 – Bosch Power Tools is breaking the mold with its hardest hitting demolition hammer yet - the new Bosch DH1020VC 25 lb. SDS-max ® Demolition Hammer. The new model features a better than ever in-line design, Bosch vibration control technology and best-in-class impact energy to maximize efficiency and productivity during demolition work. Whether chiseling windows, removing sturdy floor tiles or working on large pipes, the DH1020VC helps professionals break through concrete, stone, granite, brick and more.


The longer in-line design of the DH1020VC provides improved weight distribution during both horizontal and vertical demo applications. As part of the Bosch brand’s vibration control technology, an extended air cushion in the hammer mechanism and de-coupled main handle reduce vibrations in 2 locations inside the tool. Producing  17 ft.-lbs of impact energy, (based on EPTA standardized guidelines) this hammer is the hardest hitting in its class delivering up to 40 percent more impact energy and more than 80 percent higher chiseling removal rate than key competitors.


A 12-position Vario-lock™ allows users to rotate and lock the chisel into 12 different working positions to fine the optimal working angle, while a variable speed dial reduces the impact rate and impact energy when controlled chiseling is required, enhancing productivity and comfort during use. Constant Response™ electronics offer users soft start functionality, overload protection and maintain constant motor speed under varying loads.


A Service Minder™ light indicates the need for the carbon brushes to be changed with approximately 8 hours of brush life remaining. The hammer’s tool-free bit change features automatic bit locking, dust protection and maximum impact energy transfer.


Bosch DH1020VC 25 lb. SDS-Max Demo Hammer retails for $899 USD and is available through authorized dealers nationwide. To find out more or to locate a dealer, visit www.boschtools.com or call 877-BOSCH-99.
