AHS 54-20 LI Bare Tool - cordless mobility and maximum power

The Bosch AHS 54-20 LI cordless hedgecutter is an ideal solution for medium to large sized hedges. Offering a long run time and powerful performance, the AHS 54-20 LI requires a 36 V 1.3 Ah lithium-ion battery, sold separately, for the freedom to use anywhere. Its low weight is kind to your arms and back, plus the 54 cm laser cut, diamond ground blade gives a precise clean cut every time. For added benefits this cordless hedgecutter features the electronic ‘Anti-Blocking System’ for a continuous cut even through tough or thick branches.

Cordless freedom (battery sold separately)

Being cordless removes the hassle of untangling the cable or the risk of cutting through it. The AHS 54-20 LI is powered by an innovative Bosch 36 V 1.3 Ah lithium-ion battery, sold separately, meaning you can use it anywhere around your garden. The AHS 54-20 LI will be fully charged in just 45 minutes and runs for up to 50 minutes depending on the thickness and density of your hedge. Bosch lithium-ion batteries can be interchanged with other similar powered Bosch tools within the 36 V family, making your Bosch garden tools even more versatile.

Continuous cutting with the ‘Anti-Blocking System’

All Bosch lithium-ion hedgecutters and shears help put an end to annoying jams and stalls thanks to the electronic anti-stall device, the ‘Anti-Blocking System’. If a thick branch cannot be cut through immediately, the innovative micro-electronics detect this and instantly adjusts the running direction of the blades. These blades reverse several times to storm through the stubborn branch. Where other hedgecutters may stall, the Bosch AHS 54-20 LI powers ahead.

Outstanding cutting performance

A 54 cm laser cut, diamond ground blade provides a clean, sharp and precise cut every time. Easily cut through branches of up to 20 mm in diameter, an ideal hedgecutter for medium to large sized hedges.

Balance and ergonomics

The ergonomic design with a soft grip and see-through handle guard allows for effortless, balanced and safe working with optimal visibility. Thanks to the low weight 36 V 1.3 Ah lithium-ion battery, sold separately, the AHS 54-20 LI weighs only 3.5 kg making it less tiring on the upper back and arms whilst working.

Sawing function

The AHS 54-20 LI has a sawing function at the tip of the blade which enables you to through branches up to 25 mm in diameter. This feature allows you to cut branches 5 mm larger than the tooth spacing – useful for those odd parts of the hedge which have had more growth in the season.

Powered by Bosch Lithium-ion technology

The AHS 54-20 LI is powered by a 36 V 1.3 Ah Lithium-ion battery, sold separately, which means:

  • Long run time: a fully charged battery will allow for up to 50 minutes of run time.
  • No self-discharge: lithium-ion batteries retain their charge whilst stored (in cool, dry conditions), so the hedgecutter is ready to use when you’re ready to use it.
  • Compact and lightweight: the Lithium-ion battery is up to 50% lighter than a conventional battery- but with all the power.
  • No memory effect: lithium-ion batteries retain their full charge capacity and can be re-charged up to 4 times more than standard batteries.
  • Fast charging: say goodbye to 24 hour charging – the AHS 52 LI is fully charged in only 45 minutes.

I had a petrol hedge cutter before this and was fed up trying to start it. I already have a Bosch cordless Lawnmower and Strimmer so am able to use the Lawnmower charger and battery. The slimline 36V battery is the best as it is lighter. We have some big hedges and this hedge cutter went through them like a knife through butter.

4.0 out of 5 stars Can we go petrol free in the garden yet? 1 Aug 2013
This is the second type of Bosch 36v cordless garden tool I have purchased (the first being their excellent small chainsaw Bosch AKE 30 LI Cordless 36V Chainsaw with 2.6Ah Li-Ion Battery) and I do think we are getting fairly close to the power and flexibility that petrol powered machines offer, and we are now at that the stage where if the performance meets your needs then 36v lithium ion is a viable alternative worthy of consideration at least.

Some thoughts on use:

Cutting - the cutter runs much more slowly than a corded or petrol cutter. I assume this is because they have had to gear it down to retain cutting torque. It sounds so slow that initially I thought it was not working properly, but it was fine. This has easily trimmed an established beech hedge, and a particularly nice feature is that the end of the blade is designed to cut through wider branches.

Battery type - the battery is the same voltage and fitting as those used in the bosch li-ion mowers and chainsaw but it is half the power output (1.3 Ah vs 2.6 Ah) and also roughly half the size and weight. This means the hedgetrimmer is a sensible weight in use, but if you are planning to use your Bosch 36v batteries from other tools whilst this is possible it will add greatly to the weight here. You may like to note that the batteries are also compatible with the Bosch Blue (professional) 36v power tools including drills and saws - this can save money if you need these and can buy 'bare' tools.

It is a shame that Bosch have yet to follow Makita's lead in launching a 36v strimmer to complete the garden tool range.
