If you’re finding the mains-lead on your electric hedgetrimmer too awkward and restrictive, then this high-performance battery-powered machine from German-based manufacturers Bosch is worth serious consideration.
The battery itself is a powerful 10.8v lithium-ion cell, which trumps outdated lead-acid and ni-cad units on every level – it charges more quickly; gives a longer run time; is lower in weight; and doesn’t suffer from the self-discharge or memory effect that have long dogged less advanced battery-packs (the run-time is an impressive 50-minutes).
Fitted with a pair of 45cm double-sided, diamond-ground blades, the Bosch AHS45-15Li Cordless Hedgetrimmer will deliver a neat, manicured finish, with none of the bruising that not only looks unsightly, but also encourages disease. The tooth-gap is 15mm – ideal for younger growth.
The Bosch AHS45-15Li has been equipped with Bosch’s unique Anti-Blocking System, which ensures the motor won’t stall or burn-out should an overly heavy load suddenly be encountered.
It weighs a negligible 1.9kg, so even the more senior gardener will find it almost effortless to work with; and it incorporates a safety-switching device that means both hands must be on the machine for operation – there’s no chance of unintentional start-up.
A blade-cover and battery-charger are included.
