The handle position and handle shape are among the decisive design features of power tools since they have a direct influence on work progress and operator fatigue. Handles serve to hold, push and switch the tool, all of which has to be taken into consideration. A slightly rough but skinfriendly surface allows a relaxed and natural manual hold. Well-structured contact surfaces provide slip-proof manual grip and allow sudden back torque to be safely absorbed. These requirements have been included in the BOSCH slim-

ine design. Auxiliary handles allow two-handed use of the tool. Since they can be rotated in all directions they are most suitable for all types of work.
