X-Lock is the world’s first quick-change angle grinder, says Bosch Power Tools

Bosch Power Tools has released details of a quick change angle grinder, pitched as being five times faster than conventional interfaces.

X-LOCK is changed tool-free and is an audible snap when mounting an X-LOCK Wheel on an X-LOCK grinder. The wheel mounts properly without the need for a spanner wrench or flange nut.

Not only is the system quick, it also minimises downtime between wheel changes, with no losable parts. It’s backwards compatible, largely – most Bosch X-Lock wheels are backwards compatible with standard 7/8 inch mounts.
