3.0 out of 5 stars Safety First!, 1 Aug. 2008
This review is from: Bosch ART 23 Accu Cordless 18 Volt NiCD Telescopic Grass Trimmer (23 cm Cutting Diameter) (DIY & Tools)
Bought this to accompany my Rotak 37 lawnmower which i have been very pleased with but the ART 23 doesn't live up to my expectations from Bosch. The '23 trims well enough but i seem to go through at least 2 or 3 blades every time i use it, which is proving a hinderence as well as more costly compared with a line timmer. Also, wear goggles as the plastic blades can fly anywhere!
Battery life has been very good on a full charge.
However, in my opinion the lack of a safety switch is a serious design fault. Bosch lawnmowers are fitted with one so it seems strange to omit on other products. Its very easy to catch the 'trigger' when moving around.
