With an ergonomic design, you'll stay comfortable on even the longest jobs.
The PS50-2A uses 12-Volt Max Lithium-Ion batteries with unmatched battery runtime and a 400-percent-longer lifetime than traditional lithium-ion batteries. In fact, two battery packs should allow you to perform primary applications without down-time. Lithium-Ion batteries are the most advanced lithium-ion batteries available today. They allow more battery charges and provide longer runtime without memory effect--meaning the batteries do not need to be empty before charging.
The batteries can also be taken out of the charger before charging is complete. Other benefits include: significantly less self discharge; electronic cell protection that guards against overheating, overload, and deep discharge; and no loss of power from the first to last screw or hole. Best of all, these batteries will fully charge in 30 minutes and will be at 85% capacity in just 15 minutes.
Handles a Range of Applications and Materials for True Versatility
Versatile and flexible, the PS50-2A offers corded performance for cutting, sanding, and a range of other tasks. It's suitable for use with soft wood, hardwood, metal, drywall, and plastic, and it creates less dust than most other sanders. For added convenience, when used with the adaptor, it's compatible with most accessories.
Compact, Well-Balanced Design for Easy Handling
Measuring just 10.9 by 2.32 inches (LxH) and weighing only 2.12 pounds, the PS50-2A easily fits in tight spaces and corners when sanding or cutting. The plastic nose prevents marks on work pieces, and the ergonomic design with small perimeter and front soft-grip provides comfortable handling, even if the tool grows warm.
Variable Speed and Angle Adjustment for Superior Control
The PS50-2A provides a speed range from 5,000 to 20,000 RPM that's controlled by a variable-speed dial for quick and easy speed adjustments while you're sanding.
And, for precise results, the tool holder provides variable-angle adjustment within 240 degrees.
Innovative Features for User-Friendly Operation
The PS50-2A offers a range of helpful features to keep your work going smoothly from start to finish. First, a cutting-depth scale clearly indicates cutting depth, while a flush-cutting mechanism allows you to work flush for precise angle cuts. Second, Bosch's patented play-free drive system provides precision and optimal force transmission. Third, a hole pattern lets you set the blade in 30-degree increments for optimum ergonomics. Finally, optimized tooth geometry with large gullets ensures clean cuts in the hardest of woods.
And because the PS50-2A is cordless, you can take it anywhere. With a fuel gauge that lets you know when it's time to recharge, this tool is ready when you are.
The PS50-2A comes with the ProVantage three-year protection plan, which guarantees two years of battery protection and one year of tool protection. Under this plan, you can receive two years of free battery replacements, tool replacement for one year, and a free tool repair package for the second and third years.

I tried Bosch, Dremel, Craftsman, and even Harbor Freight. All work fine for this tool. So buy the ones you need. I personally think the craftsman rasps are the best. A 2 pack for 14.99 can't be beat at sears.
All are good tools, the guy at Harbor Freight store told me that they had many returns. I really liked it for the price and the cheap accessories i.e. diamond blade for $5.99.
I finally selected the bosch and i believe it is the best choice. I like it cordless, during my use, power lasted 9min, but have 4 batteries and 2 chargers on hand as i also own the PS40.
Very powerful tool. Did sanding, grouting, cutting and scraping all with ease and no fatigue on my hand (love the ergo).
i am not a pro, just a diy guy.
I strongly recommend this tool.
I bought the tool, because I extended my stairs and needed to make some modifications to the hardwood (basically cut two boards at 45 degree angles so I could put another mitered board against them). To accomplish this I went through 3 batteries before I completed the job. Each battery was lasting about 3-5 minutes before it lost enough charge that it wouldn't cut anymore.
With the battery life, it just doesn't seem like a valuable tool addition in my opinion. If they had a corded version then I would take another look as the one thing I really liked is that it is compatible with most other attachments (Such as the Fein) for this I gave them 2 stars, otherwise it would have been 1. If they could just come out with better battery life this would be worthwhile.
Yesterday the PS50 lost 5 stars. While cutting thin alumimium guttering, the plastic sleeve that fits between the drive shaft housed in the main body of the tool and the gear in the head stripped. (If you remove the 4 bolts holding the metal head of the PS50 to the body of the tool you will see where the drive shaft fits into the head. Actually, the shaft fits into a removable plastic gear fitted into the metal head gear.)
While I can understand that a sacrificial plastic piece is better than possibly burning out the motor, I am surprised that it would strip under a moderate load, that I must take the tool to a service center to be fixed as parts are not orderable and finally that Bosch would engineer such a tool.
I'm definately going to check out the inexpensive universal blades I've seen advertised for the Fein tool and if satisfied I will be faced with the trauma of deciding which of my kids I will be selling to buy a Fein.
Update: It's now 2012. A new motor was installed which is better designed and doesn't have the above weakness. I still wish I had bought the Fein. One of two batteries doesn't recharge and the other lasts a good 3 minutes at most. Total usage of the unit to date has been about 3 hours. That's about 10 brief uses for cutting and the rest waiting for a battery to recharge. The good news is the Bosch blades were rated best in a national building magazine. The bad, they come attached to the PS50.
