GST 140 CE/BCE Professional jigsaws by Bosch with double-roller guides for the saw blade
- Increased accuracy due to double-roller guides and play-free clamping system
- Tool-free accessory changes thanks to SDS with saw blade ejection
- Clean view of the cutting line with a powerful LED light
The saws are 20 percent smaller and 20 percent lighter than their predecessor models. Their handles have a smaller circumference, making them particularly easy and comfortable to use. The reduced vibrations, of only 6.0 m/s2 , measured according to the new EPTA procedure, also contribute to this. With their 720 Watt motors, these tools are the most powerful jigsaws in their price category. The constant electronics ensure a consistent speed under load and thus continuous work progress. Both tool models have electronic speed pre-selection so that they can be optimally set for the material to be machined.
The cutting depth in wood is 140 millimeters. Cuts using guide rails or the "Extra Clean for Wood" saw blades from the Bosch range of accessories are especially accurate. Using these, virtually tear-free cuts can be made. The saw blades can be changed particularly easily thanks to the SDS system with automatic saw blade ejection. The angle of the foot plate can also be set without tools. The popular working angles can be set easily and accurately with locking points at 22.5 and 45 degrees.
The foot plate, made from die-cast magnesium, is especially robust. Equipped with a plastic base, it slides over the work piece with no friction, preventing damage to sensitive surfaces. The rotating suction pipe for dust extraction protects the edges of the workpiece by preventing the suction hose from hitting it and causing damage. At the same time, the fact that the suction pipe can rotate freely increases the customer's freedom of movement when using the tool. Further advantages: the chip-blowing function and the LED lights that can be connected so that the user always has a good view of the cutting line. Furthermore, the tools are compatible with all Bosch suction devices.
