Bosch’s new GOP40-30 StarlockPlus Oscillating Multi-Tool is the “heavy-duty” option in its multi-tool line up. It features Bosch’s Starlock interface system for accessories, which includes snap-in, toolless attachment and no-touch blade change with auto-ejection that allows changeout in as little as three seconds. The GOP40-30 accepts standard Starlock and StarlockPLUS heavy-duty accessory lines. These accessories are engineered specifically for only those tools that are suited for them, which Bosch says helps maximize the tool life.
The GOP40-30 has a 4.0 amp motor with reinforced metal gearing for optimal power transmission. Constant Response Circuitry also helps the tool maintain operating speed under load, and you can adjust its speed between 8,000 and 20,000 oscillations per minute, depending on your application. Its three-degree oscillating arc utilizes cutting, scraping and sanding attachments more efficiently, which should increase productivity.
This multi-tool has an ergonomic design with a small grip diameter that makes it more comfortable to hold. The tool weighs just 3.3 lbs. And, built-in LED lighting helps illuminate dark work areas, such as sink bases, crawlspaces or shadows between joists.
Bosch’s new GOP40-30 StarlockPlus Oscillating Multi-Tool is available now. It’s priced between $179 and $199, depending on the included kit accessories and carry case.
