Product Description

Product Description

ART 26-18 LI - Excellent cutting performance, convenient to handle

grass trimmer

An innovative design and high performance makes using this grass trimmer a walk in the park. The cutting system is designed to be robust, with long lasting Durablades and a protective casing. The blades will last up to 12 x longer than their predecessors, saving you time.

Light but powerful

The ART 26-18 LI is powered by an 18 V / 1.5 Ah lithium-ion battery for a long run time of up to 26 minutes without losing the power. Being powered by lithium-ion technology means that you are no longer restricted by a cable and have the freedom and mobility that you need. Bosch lithium-ion batteries can be interchanged with other similar powered Bosch tools within the Power4All family, making your Bosch DIY and garden tools even more versatile.

Durablade system

With an optimised design and 26 cm cutting diameter, this innovative cutting system will allow you to neaten up your lawn in no time. The blades are made from a durable material which last up to 12 x longer than their predecessor blades. The cutting system’s housing has been engineered to protect the blades and extend their lifetime even further. If the blade hits a hard object such as a stone or wall, the blade will flip back into the cutting system and the centrifugal force will bring it back out again to continue cutting.

Ergonomic trimming and edging

The ART 26-18 LI has several useful features and weighing just 2.5 kg makes it an incredibly easy tool to manipulate. The auxiliary handle can be adjusted to suit your cutting position, just twist the red knob to move it into position. The 90° cutter head has been redesigned to effortlessly switch between trimming and edging with a push of a button. This can help you cut under garden furniture or the edges of your lawn. The telescopic handle also features this new push button adjustment to suit your preferred working position.

Plant protector

With a plant protector, take comfort in the knowledge that your plants will be protecting from the cutting system when cutting lawn edges or around flower beds.

Powered by Bosch Lithium-ion technology

The ART 26-18 LI is powered by an 18 V / 1.5 Ah Lithium-ion battery, which means:

  • Long run time: a fully charged battery will allow for up to 26 minutes of run time.
  • No self-discharge: lithium-ion batteries retain their charge whilst stored (in cool, dry conditions), so the grass trimmer is ready to use when you’re ready to use it.
  • Compact and lightweight: lithium-ion batteries are up to 50% lighter than conventional batteries-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 ART 26-18 LI is fully charged in 1 hour.

In addition to a lawnmower, many gardeners use a grass trimmer to cut edges and corners where access is limited. Choosing the right grass trimmer for you will depend on the size of your garden and the task. The Bosch grass trimmers boast an ergonomic design and easy handling. If you are looking for a perfect finish, consider a grass trimmer with a rotating cutter head which allows you to trim and edge your lawn. The bigger and more complex your garden is, the more you have to work to maintain the lawn edges along paths, walls, trees and flower beds. Corded grass trimmers plug into mains electric, so are ideal for smaller, compact gardens. Cordless grass trimmers are better for larger gardens, allowing improved manoverabilty for the project without the hassle of a cable.


Pro-tap is a bump feed system for trimmer line: when extra line is required, the user should bump the spool on the floor which will then automatically release a small segment of new line from the spool.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Starting with the positive features, this is a cordless and quite lightweight implement which nonetheless feels fairly sturdy and well put together. It is simple to adjust the angle of the upper carrying handle and the overall length to get a comfortable cutting position, and the main handle with the power switch is also comfortable in the hand. With a simple push button release, the cutting head can be quickly turned through 90° for lawn edging.

Assembly from the box is straightforward: note that attaching the protective shield on the cutting head requires a fairly narrow flat-bladed screwdriver as the retained screws in the fixing have a six-pointed star head which will not take a Phillips head screwdriver.

Rather than a reel of plastic twine as the cutting means, this strimmer has a lightweight plastic blade which simply clips into place in the cutting head: the product supplied came with one spare. The packaging claims that this system gives longer life and better performance than the conventional reel. In use the blade does not seem to have suffered unduly from occasional contact with walls and stones (it's able to pivot if it hits something) but this may also explain why it struggles with anything more than light grass.

This is an implement for tidying those lawn edges you can't reach with the mower: if you're looking to clear overgrown areas of grass and weed, this really isn't up to it.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Before using the trimmer you will need to assemble a few bits. For this to be achieved, you will need to use a hex key. This is NOT included with the product, and I was glad that I had one here already, or I would have been a bit annoyed to find out that I had to make a separate trip/online order to be able to use it.

The trimmer holds charge fairly well, as far as cordless machines go. It lasted for around the half hour before needing to be charged again. I think that this is a reasonable amount of time for using a trimmer. Anything greater than that may mean that you could do with investing in a lawnmower...or that you should consider paving your garden to avoid it getting so out of hand!

The product arrives with two blades, so you have one spare. Bosch market their blades as lasting much longer than conventional brands, which is due to the pivot which means that if you should hit the blade against something hard it will swing away from it. The idea seems to be pretty sound, although I cannot attest to whether they last as long as they claim, having only tried the trimmer a few times so far.

Performance wise, I have no real quibbles about the product. I haven't used a corded trimmer for quite some time, so I cannot compare this product with the corded versions, but I can say that it has coped perfectly with all that we have needed it for so far. We are not good gardeners, we probably belong in the 'should patio the whole thing' category, but we are trying to improve our gardening motivation. As such, the trimmer had to cope with more than just grass, and definitely some deep-rooted weeds.

Overall, if you are looking for a cordless trimmer, then I would most definitely recommend this lightweight product. Just remember that you do not get the hex key included!

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Strimmers/Trimmers are fraught with issues. The strimmer line breaks or fails to load properly (usually ending as tangled twisted mess inside the spool). Petrol ones, which tend to be heavy duty, can be temperamental. Corded ones have a limited range. Battery ones tend to be lightweight and the cutting blades tend to be very fragile. (We have an earlier version of this strimmer and the little white blades break as soon as they hit anything of substance.

Well, with this cracking piece of kit I think Bosch have come up with a real winner. First of all it is reasonable lightweight and easy to manoeuvre. Second it uses the interchangeable Power for All battery pack - which means if you have other Bosch devices you can swap the packs around - which means you can strim for longer. Third, this has a variable speed control so you don't need to have it running at full blast. This one also comes with a neat little metal guard which will protect plants.

But the best bit is the new "durablade". The trimmer comes with just two of these which I thought was a bit mean given how quickly I get through the earlier ones. Well after using the trimmer for 90 minutes over the last two days the first blade is still going strong. And it has had some punishment - I was trimming an area which was quite overgrown and has quite a lot of hidden stumps and fallen branches so even though I was trying to be careful I hit a few. And yet the blade is still good.

The only minor criticism at the time of writing is that the replacement blades seem difficult to find - I have only found one supplier to date. But having said that I am in no hurry to get some more given what I have said above.

I thoroughly recommend this item.

I have been after a strimmer for some time and was delighted to receive this Bosch ART strimmer!
Lightweight, responsive and best of all, cordless, this strimmer has proven sturdy and effective.
The battery pack has held its charge, and I have only had to charge it once since purchase. The blades seem durable and I have occasionally grazed against a paving stone or branch, and although it has taken a millimetre or two off the overall length of the blade, generally it has remained strong and intact.
I have searched online and in stores for replacement blades and have had trouble finding the same "durable" blades, so I am conscious that it may have trouble further down the line, but overall I a very please with this item!
