Everything I have in Bosch has been real work horse...
great longevity and better CS/TS...
there's no reason to suspect this tool will be any different..

Agreed, the 1 thing that makes me hesitate is it adds another charging station, to the 3 I already have.
I have the full complement of Bosch 12V and only use one charger to keep up...

Looks like it would be convenient for sign making. No cord to futz with. Clear plastic base which makes it even better. Odd shape and I notice it's being held by the open throat--too close to a spinning blade to suit me.

12Volts will need impossible 100AMPS to get to 1200Watts
Will be a waste of money.

if it was DeWalt...
Dewalt MADE IN USA with 3 years warranty
Bosch router now Assembled in Mexico with parts from Communist China. (used to be made in USA). Usually only 1 year warranty. 2 years warranty in AU.

Dewalt, Makita only makes 18V trim routers.
Bosch 12V should be called "a rotary tool" just like the Dremel (also owned by Bosch)

Bosch ONLY called it a "EDGE CUTTER" or "EDGE TRIMMER".
It was always the sales person who tried to exaggerate and call it a "trim router".

A 12V 3AMP-HOUR Battery, even if you assume it drains at 2C will give 6 AMPERES for 1/2 hour.
6 AMPERES X 12 VOLTS = 72 watts (1/10 the power of s Markita 18V 700w trimmer).
Running at 4C gives 144watts for 15 minutes.

Even the YOUTUBE BOSCH presenter said it is for LIGHT DUTY jobs only.


There has been NO REAL CODE-LESS ROUTER ever made yet.
PHYSICS is limiting it's design and production.

I heard Bosch was redesigning the Colt. Is this it? In most comparison tests the compact DeWalt was preferred to the Colt, though they are both good machines. This may be an entirely different project.
