August 14, 2018 — The GWS18V-45C 18V EC brushless 4.5-in. angle grinder features an EC brushless motor and connected-ready capability that delivers control such as maintenance review and performance notifications.
According to Bosch, the grinder delivers 10,000 no-load rpm. It offers plug-in connected-ready capability by supplying an interface that works with the optional Bosch GCY30-4 Bluetooth connectivity module. It provides user control by interfacing with the Bosch Toolbox app on a mobile phone. Users can customize the grinder, changing the speed of the soft-start function, setting the brightness of the LED and receiving battery charge and KickBack Control status updates.
The grinder’s electronics provide features including drop control, which shuts the tool off if dropped, and KickBack Control, which shuts down the grinder’s motor if the tool is jammed. The tool also features a two-position vibration control side handle.
