5.0 out of 5 stars Superheroes!, 26 Jun 2014
This review is from: Bosch Isio Cordless Shrub/ Grass Shear (DIY & Tools)
I have a very large garden with a ridiculous amount of hedging. Usually, at this time of year, I'm scrambling about with hand trimmers (won't use the big hedge trimmers when the birds are nesting) and topiary shears, trying - failing - to keep on top of things. It's practically a full-time job; it's exhausting; it gets me down. These little trimmers look like nothing, they're so small and light, I never imagined the transformative power of these deceptive little shears. OK, they're no good for the heavy stuff, that's not what they're designed for. They're trimmers, and they trim splendidly, keeping the pesky, untidy, hanging-down stuff neat and pretty without disturbing the wildlife. They're small and specific enough to make great topiary shears, too. A little hard on the hands after long use - pressing two switches down can be a little awkward occasionally, and it definitely develops the muscles - but the safety aspect of the second switch is appreciated,and you soon get used to it; it's nowhere near as hard as wielding hand shears for hour after hour.
The grass trimmers are useful too. they're not as life-changing (no, I mean it. These shears have transformed the way I garden, and the garden is a huge part of my life) as the hedge trimmers, but they are invaluable for lawn edges and trimming around pots and all those places the lawnmower can't reach.
The batteries are phenomenal. Are they alien technology? They seem to last forever off a charge My trimmer have had almost daily heavy use for a solid 6 weeks now and I just plugged them in for their first charge last night - an event that prompted this review.
In short, if you are looking for hedge trimmers/topiary shears for *light* work (these are not made for cutting hedges, they are trimmers, neateners), I cannot recommend these - very reasonably priced trimmers - highly enough .
