Bosch Professional Power Tools Used to Build Tough Mudder Course

Bosch Professional Power Tools have been used for the construction of the Tough Mudder course, which will see more than 120,000 men and women turn up at events

They will climb, swing and crawl over and through each one of up to 25 obstacles together throughout the 2016 Tough Mudder UK season.

The obstacle course challenge spans 10 to 12 miles and tests teamwork, mental grit and physical strength and the team has relied on Bosch Professional Power Tools to construct the durable and unforgettable course for its participants.

Tough Mudder Senior Construction Manager, David Solan, and his eight course building team have been given the task of turning the greenfield event sites into the energy-sapping tests of courage, strength and teamwork a that are Tough Mudders

The team’s tools of choice are Bosch Professional Power Tools, where 18 volt cordless screwdrivers will power through at least 2,000 screws each day and five articulated truckloads of wood, as the crew will have only four weeks to finish the building of the course.

As well as the screwdrivers, the team will also use the complete Bosch 18 volt range of rotary hammers, circular saws, brush cutters, angle drills and angle grinders.

Solan commented: “Having the same battery system across all of the tools we use and amongst our team really helps to maximise productivity out in the field.

“We are often in the middle of nowhere when we begin construction for our events, and so the combination of cordless and super-long battery life is essential.

“It means that our tools are always ready to go to build these best-in-class obstacles.”

All of Bosch’s Professional 18 volt tools can run on the complete range of Bosch 18 volt batteries and are future-proofed for any new power packs that may be launched.

Senior Product Manager of Bosch Professional Cordless Power Tools, Martin Sibley, said: “We’re delighted that the 18-Volt range has had a chance to really prove its credentials with the Tough Mudder construction crew.

“I think if it stands up to their rigorous demands, it earns the right to be in anyone’s toolbox!”
