The compact cordless tool, which weighs only one kilogram, can handle a variety of tasks and delivers the same power as comparable mains-powered tools.
“Whether the job requires precise plunge cuts in materials such as wood or plasterboard, flush cutting copper pipes, protruding nails or screws, trimming a door frame, or cutting and replacing damaged tiles, the GOP 10.8 V-LI Professional, accomplishes each task with ease,” said Mr Tim Feldman, senior brand manager of Bosch Blue Power Tools.
“Even precise sanding in the smallest of corners or scraping all different kinds of material such as old carpet adhesive or silicone joints are performed quickly with the Multi-Cutter,” Mr Feldman added.
Uninterrupted operation is guaranteed by the two Premium Lithium-Ion batteries, supplied as standard with a half hour quick charger. The battery charges to 75% of its capacity within only 15 minutes. A charge level indicator on the tool shows how much energy is left in the battery at any given time.
“One of the keys to the Bosch Multi-Cutter’s success is that it does not rotate, it oscillates 1.4 degrees from side to side between 5,000 to 20,000 times per minute. This enables tear-free cuts and sanding in corners,” Mr Feldman explained.
Now available from professional tool retailers at a recommended retail price of AU$299, the Bosch GOP 10.8 V-LI Professional Multi-Cutter comes complete with:
• Two batteries
• Quick charging station
• Plunge-cutting blade saw
• Delta sanding plate
• Carrying case
Users can customize the unit to suit the project they are working on by choosing from a list of more than two dozen accessories to deal with a huge range of jobs including:
• Sawing flush cuts such as the bottom of door frames
• Extremely fine cut outs in parquet flooring
• Plunge cuts into sold wood and in plasterboard
• Making slots in porous concrete to seat pipes or cabling
• Cutting tiles
• Cutting non-ferrous metals
• Trimming soft plastics such as PVC tubes
Grinding and Scraping

Bosch also offers a dust extraction system as an accessory.
At 175 mm in diameter it is narrow enough to fit comfortably in most people’s hands and the softgrip covering offers a firm grip and fatigue-free working,” Mr Feldman said.
Bosch Premium Lithium-Ion Technology
The innovative Premium Lithium-Ion technology from Bosch, with its battery runtime and 400% longer lifetime is vastly superior to other battery technologies.
The long lifetime is thanks to Electronic Cell Protection (ECP) from Bosch. It reliably protects the battery against overload, overheating and total discharge. Moreover, the battery pack is so robust that it can withstand being dropped from a height of two metres onto concrete and remain fully functional.
Low energy loss during charging and operation and intelligent power management contributes to its high performance. The integration of electronics, motor and gearbox ensures a highly effective drivetrain, further optimising battery life and performance.
Thanks to the ‘Hyper-Charge’ technology from Bosch, the batteries are charged to 75% after only half of the charge time. There is also no memory effect and the batteries are ready for use, even if they have not been used for months.
The Premium Lithium-Ion technology is available in all voltage classes from 3.6 to 36 volts for professionals from professionals. Bosch therefore offers an optimised power tool for every application performed by professional tradesmen.
