Classic design and 30 percent shorter charging time: The cult screwdriver Ixo Classic is back

Precise screwdriving even in sensitive materials

  • Now once again in classic Bosch Green with red control elements
  • Controlled screwdriving thanks to Speed Control
  • 30 percent shorter charging time and thus ready for use faster than ever
  • From the design to the Ixo Collection ‒ so much more than a power tool

Something Ixo fans can look forward to: The Ixo Classic is back. It combines the best features from two different design lines: The distinctive silhouette with smooth curves of the current generation and the traditional coloring in classic Bosch Green with red control elements ‒ just as do-it-yourselfers want to have their power tools. This was revealed by a large-scale customer survey. With sales of more than 19 million, this cult screwdriver is the most popular power tool in the world and, more than any other DIY tool, stands for tradition and quality of power tools from Bosch. The reasons for this are the permanent further development and unique functions such as Speed Control. This speed regulation makes the difference to conventional screwdrivers of the same class on the market: The stronger the switch is pressed, the faster the Ixo screws. The secret is a digital control system. Scratched surfaces or pieces of furniture, splintered wood, screws damaged or inserted too deeply ‒ Ixo users can avoid all this thanks to the precise control.

Ready for use faster: 30 percent shorter charging time due to electronic update

Bosch has optimized the associated hardware and software and thus created more added value: The charging time is 30 percent shorter than its predecessor. The Ixo Classic is therefore ready for use again in less than two hours. The three-stage LED charging indicator allows users to constantly monitor how long the tool will screw, drill or, with the various adapters from the Ixo Collection, open wine bottles, season food, blast the charcoal of a barbecue, or also cut into different materials.

Ixo ‒ so much more than a power tool

The Ixo owes its cult status, among other things, to its uniqueness right up to the packaging. For connoisseurs of good wine, for example, Bosch offers the Ixo Classic in the Vino Set with five bits and micro USB charging cable in an elegant wooden box. Unscrewing with the corkscrew adapter can thus lead to maximum enjoyment of the wine. Working around the corner and close to the edge ‒ made possible with the angle screw adapter and the off-set angle adapter. They are also available in the set with 10 bits and micro USB charger in a smart soft case. Furthermore, all adapters in the Ixo Collection, such as drilling adapter, grill blower adapter or universal cutting adapter, are also available individually.

The Ixo is much more than a power tool and its extraordinary design always makes it a show-stopper. The crystal-studded Ixo Swarowski, for example, is legendary. Ixo enthusiasts can look forward to eight further designs from December thanks to the Ixo Configurator MyIxo. For further information, see PI 11234 . The Ixo in the popular Raspberry Red also remains in the program.

Ixo Classic, the Vino Set and the set with angle screw adapter and off-set angle adapter are available now. All stated prices are recommended retail prices including VAT.
