Bosch AHS 50-26 Electric Hedgecutter

  • Product Details

    The 50-26 is a powerful, lightweight corded hedge-cutter which would be ideal for anyone who has a medium-large hedge to deal with: its long blade and powerful motor combine with a number of useful features to make it easy to keep your hedges or shrubs in good order.

    While its long blade and powerful motor mean this is not the lightest corded hedge-cutter available from Bosch, it has nevertheless been designed to be as light as possible. At 3.5kg, it is 10% lighter than predecessor models and the weight has been carefully balanced, allowing you to work for longer without strain on your back or arms. The handles have been ergonomically designed with a soft grip, and a see-through hand guard ensures safe and comfortable use in any working position.

    The powerful mains-powered 600W motor not only gives you freedom from the charge times of a battery and the fumes of petrol, it also gives a powerful and effective cutting performance, coping easily with a medium-large hedge. The high-torque clutch gives this tool the power to slice through thick, tough branches with ease.

    The laser-cut, diamond-ground blade is 50cm long, giving you the reach to deal with tough branches in awkward positions or to trim the top of your hedge even above your head. The 26cm tooth-spacing enables it to get a good grip on thick branches, helping to avoid skidding and power through the branch. This model also includes a sawing function at the end of the blade, which enables it to cut through branches even bigger than the tooth-spacing suggests: up to 32mm in diameter. To avoid accidental damage to the blade when cutting near obstacles or hard surfaces such as walls, this cutter is also fitted with a metal blade-protector tip.

    About Bosch
    Since the humble beginnings in Stuttgart, 1886, when Robert Bosch formed his own business manufacturing electronic components, the ‘Workshop for Precision Mechanics and Electrical Engineering' has become one of the biggest and best known manufacturers of domestic and industrial electrical products in the world. The willingness to improve on established designs started almost immediately and it is this ethos that has kept Bosch GmbH and Bosch lawnmowers ahead of their rivals ever since. This innovation is quite apparent in the present range of Bosch lawnmowers and garden products that include tools no other garden machinery manufacturer produces.

    Whatever size your garden, there is bound to be a Bosch lawnmower to suit it. The Bosch Rotak electric and cordless mowers exemplify the company’s willingness to innovate with features such as grass combs that enable mowing up to the edges of lawn borders and rechargeable lithium-ion batteries with virtually no drop-off in performance after extended use. Aside from Bosch lawnmowers, notable inventions are the Ciso Cordless Secateur and Isio Cordless Shrub Shear, tools that allow users with physical weaknesses to carryout day-to-day gardening tasks without discomfort. There is no doubt that if a garden tool can be improved upon, Robert Bosch GmbH is probably designing its successor already.
