Product Overview

The Bosch GWS13-50VSP 5 in. angle grinder with lock-on paddle switch and variable speed, features a new 13 Amp motor design with direct motor cooling and more air vents. This feature reduces hand blockage to extend tool life and provide higher overload capabilities to prevent overheating. Results from independent testing revealed that Bosch grinders outlast the competition to deliver the best tool lifetime in the market up to 9 times more life than competitors. Improved carbon brushes offer more than double the lifetime of previous brushes, which means less downtime for maintenance. Additional features include a new patented multi-grip paddle switch and textured housing to provide increased grip options for better ergonomics and tool control. The first-to-the-market multi-grip paddle switch can now be operated in the front, middle and rear as opposed to only in the rear on old models allowing users to hold the grinder in any position.
  • Powerful 13 Amp motor with constant electronic for fast work progress and high productivity
  • Patented multi-grip paddle switch that allows multiple grip positions for optimal comfort and control
  • Variable speed dial that provides the ability to adjust speed for specific applications
  • Electronic clutch which shuts down the motor if the wheel gets into a sudden bind situation
  • Overload protection that shuts off tool to reduce overheating and motor damage
  • Constant response circuitry maintains constant speed under load
  • Soft start reduces start-up torque to protect motor
  • Restart protection protects against an automatic restart after a power interruption
  • No-lock-on switch which allows the grinder to turn off when the switch is released
  • Directed air flow diverts dust away from switch and vital components to extend tool life
  • Large spindle lock for more convenience and easier change of accessories

GWS 13-50VSP, Does the gear housing rotates 90 degrees? If it does, in which direction (left or right)?

Asked by DJ April 25, 2016
1
Answer

Thank you for your question. The only time the gearbox should be rotated is if you are cutting masonry and using the proper cutting guard. For general grinding applications the gearbox should not be rotated and the normal grinding guards should be used.

Overall another great tool from Bosch. I used this in conjunction with wire wheels to clean plaster residue from concrete. The variable speed allowed me to find the optimal balance between performance and wire wheel longevity. It seems to have weathered close to 100 hours in an extremely fine dust environment without failure. Recommend using compressed air to keep internal mechanics clean.
