Remember it is only a strimmer
on 4 May 2012
It should be remembered that this is only a strimmer, for doing edges & suchlike, not a lawn mower. I have not had a problem with the blades wearing out and suspect this may be due to inappropriate use. B&Q sell compatible blades at a much cheaper price the the Bosch ones.
Using on an an allotment where there is no power it is either a cordless strimmer or a petrol one and I find petrol ones too much hassle to deal with so went with this. My only criticism is the short battery life. Fortunately I have a pair of Bosch batteries which came with my drill & can use those as back ups.
For the price this should be supplied with at least one spare battery and, until it is, it will remain so overpriced at £92 that 3 stars is quite a generous rating.
