Bosch Xeo All-Purpose Cutter: Looks Sharp, Cuts Sharp
Faster, lighter and more precise--the Bosch Xeo is the improved universal cutting tool from Bosch Power Tools. Compact and precise, this tool has a better cutting performance than its predecessor and is the perfect solution for all of your lightweight cutting tasks. Great cuts are easy with the XEO--you can use it with ease in carpet, cardboard, foils, cork and wallpaper. You can also accurately trim plastic strips, shower curtains and window blinds. Even PVC or linoleum floors can be cut to size with ease. Scissors are no completion, and the Xeo even sharpens itself.
The Xeo is a truly handy tool to have around the house. It’s useable for jobs that are too hard for scissors and too dangerous for carpet knives. It is ideal for opening stubborn packaging, for pruning unsightly, protruding branches of plants or even for trimming a reed mat, bamboo or corrugated plastic for a balcony, patio or garden to the desired height. Users can generally use the Bosch Xeo to chop up anything that they no longer need--you’ll be able to fit a lot more in your waste bin or recycling. Its versatility makes the Xeo a tool for everyday jobs because it is always within reach. It’s always ready for use thanks to its practical lithium-ion technology. It makes a smart and useful gift, as a tool that everybody wants to get their hands on, regardless of whether they are right-handers or left-handers.
The XEO universal cutter will appeal to keen crafters looking for a tool to provide a neat edge on paper, card or felt projects or to keen DIYers fitting lino or carpet. Interior designers will also benefit from a precise cut when reupholstering furniture or trimming wallpaper. Not forgetting budding fashion designers, who can guarantee a stylish result on all kinds of fabric, including denim.
Precise in Cutting
The Xeo offers a better view of the cutting line when in action than its predecessor and has a red line-of-cut indicator on the safety guard, which makes it easier to guide the cut. It cuts materials up to six millimetres thick. The tool also comes with a handy cutting guide, allowing you to cut and fit carpets with ease.
The Xeo knife has a precise cutting performance especially in thin and flexible material, such as textile. Thanks the AutoSharp self-sharpening function, users don’t have to worry about losing the sharpness of the rotary cutting blade. The lower blade is made of a stronger material than the upper blade and the lower blade is fixed in a shallow angle with the 10-sided upper blade, so the blades rub against one another, which results in a self-sharpening effect. The lock-off switch and safety guard minimise the risk of injury. The gripping surface of the Xeo gives a better and more comfortable hold, and reduces the risk of the user losing his or her grip and therefore control of the machine
The lithium-ion technology means that the tool is always ready to use.
The Advantages of Lithium-Ion Technology
Tools with lithium-ion technology are ready for use practically all of the time. Regardless of whether the battery is fully charged, partially charged, or flat, you can put it in the charging station without having to worry about self-discharge or memory effect.
Small Tools, Big Progress--Simply Remarkable
Bosch lithium-ion cordless tools like the XEO are ready for use quickly. Even after a period of 4 months on standby, a fully charged lithium-ion battery is still charged to approximately 85 per cent. This means that Bosch Power is available to you for six times longer than that of conventional NiCd batteries.
Full Power at all TimesNo self-discharge, no memory effect: constant battery capacity over the entire lifetime. Always ready when you are thanks to lithium-Ion technology.
Same Battery Power at Half the Size
Due to the lithium-ion technology, the size and weight of the batteries are reduced by approximately 60 per cent compared to conventional nickel cadmium batteries--although they offer the same amount of power.
Batteries That Can Withstand the Elements
The intelligent electronic cell protection, Bosch ECP, protects the lithium-ion batteries against excessive temperatures and overload, therefore giving them a particularly long lifetime.
High Power, Low Weight
Bosch cordless tools with lithium-ion technology impress with their very compact design, low weight and very good ease of use. This saves you a lot of effort when doing those DIY jobs.
