The Ixo has established itself as a favourite for a range of household tasks and has now been launched in its seventh generation form with 20% more power and a torque of 5.5Nm thanks to an optimised motor. Its livery is still the Classic Green and is perfect for household projects, for example, assembling prefabricated furniture or the helping the next creative project along. Thanks to the longer battery runtime, due to a 2.0 Ah rechargeable battery, DIYers can now drive up to 190 screws with a single battery charge – nearly double the number possible with the previous generations of the screwdriver.
A screwdriver for all occasions
The new Ixo also boasts improvements in handling, like the new LED light ring that ensures a consistently clear view without any shadows when screwdriving. Ergonomically the Ixo always fits well in the hand thanks to its shape and its extensive soft grip overmoulding.
Versatility is another Ixo plus point. The optimised cap concept of the screwdriver can be driving screws one minute, removing a cork from a wine bottle or lighting the grill the next. Exchanging the Ixo adapters has never been so quick and easy. The applications of the Ixo are many and various with end users finding as many varied ways of using this tool as their imagination and skill allow. The Ixo Collection therefore offers a wide range of adapters for drilling, cutting, and screwdriving, as well as for use as a barbecue fan, corkscrew, or spice mill.
Surprise for creative DIYers
If you want your 7th generation Ixo to be a little more special, Bosch will allow users to individually personalize its box from October. It could be a present for a special someone or to give yourself a little treat – the personal design of the Ixo storage box makes each Ixo unique. The box can be designed either by uploading one's own photo or by selecting a suggested motif at www.bosch-diy.com/shop. In addition, a person's own text can also be inserted.
New Ixo generation sets an example for greater sustainability
Sustainability is important at Bosch and DIYers can appreciate the sustainable product concept in addition to the improved power and more comfortable handling compared with the last Ixo generation. For example, the outer box, including inlay, consists of over 90 percent recycled plastic. The overall packaging is smaller, so material is saved, and waste reduced. The Ixo is partially made from recycled plastic, but still preserves its customary stability and robustness for all applications.
Bosch continues to work to improve the sustainability of the entire product range and a dedicated team was created for this purpose. The team continuously examines and implements suitable measures throughout the world, for example regarding recycling of packaging and power tools. The main objectives are to reduce the CO2 footprint of products in the long term and promote recycling management.
The seventh-generation Ixo will be available from September 2022. All prices are recommended retail prices including VAT.
