Cordless Power Tools and Improved Ergonomics


The Bosch GKF12V-25 12V Max Palm Edge Router delivers cordless freedom and an ergonomic offset design that make this router the choice for comfortable, compact edge routing and trimming. The cordless router is lightweight, balanced and designed specifically to make edge router and trimming easier.

The GKF12V-25 12V Max router weighs only 2.2 Lbs. (bare tool). The 12-volt Bosch EC Brushless motor offers impressive 13,000 rpm power and helps to provide great runtime. Constant speed circuitry monitors and maintains speed under load for consistent performance, and restart protection helps prevent accidental startup when switching batteries. The tool provides up to 23 Ft. of round-over capacity per battery amp hour (Ah). An easy-change spindle lock offers fast macro-depth adjustment and easy fine-depth adjustment.

The router provides 12V Max power combined with cordless convenience. A compact grip area is positioned over the workpiece for maximum stability when edge forming and trimming. The tool measures 9.9 In. high, 5.7 In. long (front to back) and 3.1 In. wide. Its narrow 2.3 In. grip area enhances the router’s maneuverability.

“The Bosch GKF12V-25 Palm Edge Router is all about user convenience and routing precision,” says Charlie Chiappetta, product manager, 12-volt tools, Bosch Power Tools. “This is a handy tool that’s always at the ready. It’s light, it’s maneuverable and it delivers great results. For quick, professional edge routing and trimming, there’s no better tool available.”

The Bosch 12-volt edge router combines smooth, fast macro-depth adjustment with easy and accurate fine adjustment. The fine adjustment is 0.04 In. per revolution of the dial. A lock system on the tool helps prevent tampering with the depth setting.

The Bosch GKF12V-25 12V Max Palm Edge Router includes a 1/4 In. self-releasing collet chuck and forged collet wrench. Other key features include a finger barrier to help prevent contact with the bit area when the tool is in operation and a drop-detection sensor that stops the motor if the tool is dropped.
