Powerful trimmer for large hedges
3 September 2017
I'm reviewing the AHS70-34 hedge trimmer. This replaces a trimmer I had from Bosch that didn't have the power to cut through small branches.
This however has no such issues.
It has a 70 cm blade and 34mm teeth with a powerful 700 watt motor. The cable is 10 meters long.
I've used it to trim a large hedge and I did it in less time and effort than my previous hedge trimmer. I've also trimmed a small tree with ease. The great thing about this trimmer is it has a sawing action so even if the blade teeth are smaller than the branch, a little sawing action will cut through it. With the blade being quite long the reach of the trimmer also helps with large hedges. I've got a tall hedge in my garden and I could cut the top of it without a ladder. The circular handle has 3 large red buttons positioned around it, which helps angle the blade to cut at various angles. It weighs only 3.9kg but this weight is evenly distributed.
I use a premium oil spray on the blades to keep them in perfect condition. This can be purchased for around £5 from a diy shop.
Overall really impressed with this purchase. It comes in a large box with the blade sticking out which is protected with a plastic cover.
