This hedge-cutter is the ideal choice for anyone with a medium-length hedge or shrubs to deal with: it is light enough to be easy to use, and its long blade ensures it can be used in all sorts of places that might otherwise be difficult to reach.
Weighing in at only 2kg, this machine is light enough for anyone to carry and use around the garden for as long as necessary, whatever their strength. The weight has also been carefully balanced, and the whole machine has been designed according to ergonomic principles, to make it as comfortable as possible for the operator to use, without strain on their hands, back or arms.
The 10.8V lithium-ion battery also helps ensure that this cutter is as user-friendly as possible: it will give up to 50 minutes of runtime on a single charge, depending on the density of the material being cut, and will recharge fully in only three hours- gone are the days when it was necessary to charge a battery overnight. The lithium-ion technology also conveys other benefits: the battery is 50% lighter than a conventional battery, which has helped Bosch keep the weight of the cutter down without compromising on power. The battery will store safely without self-discharging, and will also retain its full charging capacity for up to 4x longer than a conventional battery.
In spite of its low weight, the diamond-ground blade on this cutter is 450mm long, giving you the reach to deal with medium-sized shrubs or hedges. The 15mm-spaced teeth ensure the blade gets a good grip on the branch, and Bosch have also fitted their “Anti-blocking” system to the blade. Innovative micro-electronics detect when a branch is too tough to be cut through immediately, and instantly alter the running direction of the blade so they reverse several times, allowing them to gain traction and power through the tough branch.
For added convenience, you can remove the 10.8V Li battery from your hedge-cutter and swap it with your other compatible Bosch tools, allowing you to purchase tools without the battery and only keep one.
The Bosch AHS 45-15 LI now features Bosch’s Syneon Chip which manages the interaction between the battery, motor and gear. This is achieved by monitoring the power needed, controlling the motor voltage, and managing the battery temperature. This will ensure you get the optimum power and endurance from your tool until the job is complete.
