Light, compact & easy to use
on 8 July 2017
I've been wanting to buy a hedge trimmer for some time now. I kept putting it off, but finally bought this budget Bosch one due to the star rating in Amazon and the fact I own a Bosch lawnmower which is superb.
I am so glad I did get a hedge trimmer as I've been previously using a pair of hand shears!!, and I don’t need to explain how frustrating and a chore it is to maintain a fairly big hedge with manual shears.
Despite being small it is more than capable with its 420 watt motor. I was actually surprised how quiet the motor is.
This little machine is capable of dealing with small and even medium size hedges and branches. A great choice for the gardener that wants to get the job done quick and precise.
The trimmer is equipped with a 45 centimeter long blade, which has a tooth spacing of 16 millimeters. The blade has apparently been diamond grounded which should give the blade a bit of longevity and clean cutting.
There is also a nice plastic blade cover that comes with the trimmer, so you can preserve the blade when not in use.
The cable length is around 10m which may be enough for some people to not even require an extension reel.
Handles are positioned very ergonomically that suits me quite well, and I don’t feel like I would drop it at any point in time. It’s very light, weighing in at 2.5kg which helps prevent fatigue in the old arms when reaching up.
You could probably cut long grass with this trimmer if you don’t own a lawnmower, although that would be pretty back breaking!
I can definitely recommend this to my friends and other Amazon users 👍🏻
