Cave exploration on the Bosch website
« on: September 24, 2018, 10:03:54 pm »
Hello all,

The Ario Caves Project was sponsored by Bosch drills last year. We were chuffed as they are near on indestructible and we got to try a few beasties on top of some impressive light ones that were great for bolt climbing avens.

Part of the sponsorship deal was a commissioned short film about cave exploration and drills etc.

You will see some familiar faces, including some cave photography by the amazing Axel Hack of recent Dachstein fame and cavers like Mike Bottomley, Sarah Holman, Adam Walmsley and Mark Sims.

Hope ye like it

Take care

We (SC Avalon) haven been using Bosch machines for over 10 years in several settings. From mud caves in Belgium to deep pitches in the Anialarra system.

The small bosch machines are a real pleasure to work with. (We have 2 in the club for bolting)

Paul de Bie even made a comparison between a BOSCH 36 V-Li-ion et HILTI TE6A Li-ion back in 2006

We are still using the BOSCH 36 V-Li-ion on a regular base in our club. The machine is still going strong after 12 years.
