Cordless Power Tools Increase Versatility

Ease of use is important in every power tool, but none more than the cordless planer. The Bosch GHO12V-08 12V Max Planer is designed for easy, balanced operation in a compact design for a cordless planer. At about the same size as a hand plane, the GHO12V-08 power planer has 2.2 In. of planing width and a single-pass planing depth of up to 0.08 In. With an efficient Bosch EC Brushless motor, this cordless planer delivers fast stock removal and a smooth finish.

The tool offers long runtime, planing up to 33 Ft. of one-inch wide hardwood per amp hour (Ah). The planer is ideal for a variety of wood application, including door trimming.

The Bosch GHO12V-08 12V Max planer features impressive power thanks to its brushless motor. The planer offers fast planing speed of up to 14,500 rpm, and with constant speed circuitry it monitors and maintains speed under load for consistent performance. And because it’s a cordless planer, there’s no possibility of running out of cord in the middle of a pass. Depth adjustment is quick and easy. The tool can create rabbet cuts of up to 0.7 In.

At only 3.3 Lbs. (tool only, not including battery), the cordless planer is light and manageable. The planer housing is machined from a single piece of aluminum block to ensure stability and to reduce vibration. It’s designed with an optimized, deep balance point to help ensure even planing. The tool comes in at just over 10 inches long.

The GHO12V-08 planer provides switchable right or left shavings extraction, as well as a collection bag for shavings and a vacuum hose adapter. It also includes an on-board storage compartment for holding a spare planer blade.

The Bosch cordless planer comes with two 2.2 In (56mm) Bosch Woodrazor micrograin carbide planer blades, a blade wrench, a shavings diverter, a shavings bag and a vacuum hose adapter. Battery and charger are sold separately.
