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.
