Not as good as it should be!,
This review is from: Bosch AMW 10 HS Multi-Tool with Pole Hedge Cutter Attachment (DIY & Tools)
Purchased this to cope with a mixed hedge on my boarder. Very heavy and unbalanced (& I'm a 6'4" Rugby type) and it failed miserably to cut anything more substantial than privet! I've got laurel & rhodedendron and it was no use at all on this. It was also very difficult to control with any accuracy so final result looked very poor. I realise that I shouldn't have expected anything like Stihl quality for the money but from Bosch, I was expecting better! Returned it and got my money back.

I agree entirely -bought one locally (at £99 in Charlies, cheaper than Amazon). I gave it a try on my privet hedge and was surprised at how easily it gave up -leaves were Ok but as soon as it touched a stalk it just refused to cut it. After about two minutes of cutting it just gave up altogether. The motor continued to rotate but the link to the cutter failed. Took it back today, they confirmed it was faulty and i got a refund. For a machine with a 1000W motor this is oddly feeble.

Torque will be lost up the shaft (tube) and further loss will occur in the right angle gearbox. Loss will also occur with blade friction, material to be cut, thickness, rotation of the earth, elevation, windage, current government...etc, etc.
I would however have hoped that a Kilowatt would have evened such loss out but it seems not.
The 'Motor At Head, type is commented as being cheapo and head heavy...although cuts (something).
Keep going with the wobbly old ladders and board methinks.
So thanks guys, for your contributions. You've saved me a hundred pounds and finding out this weapon isn't going to help me harvest my eight foot high Beech Salad anytime soon.
Back to into the Surf dudes!
