Bosch AHS 52 LI Cordless Hedgecutter

  • Product Details

    This is a powerful hedge-cutter, new from Bosch, which offers the ideal combination of a long blade and low weight to make it ideal for getting at tall hedges and shrubs which you might have considered were beyond your reach.

    Weighing only 2.3kg, this machine is light enough for anyone to use easily for as long as is required, whatever their strength and in any working position, including overhead, without strain on the back and arms. The weight has also been carefully balanced and the whole machine has been newly designed according to ergonomic principles, including new “softgrip” handle, to ensure it is as comfortable as possible to use. To make this cutter even more user-friendly, it has also been designed for low noise levels and vibration-free operation, and features a two-switch start system for safety, ensuring it can never be switched on accidentally.

    The powerful 18V battery frees you from the fear of accidentally cutting a mains cable, as well as from the fumes and noise of a petrol engine. It also offers a powerful cutting experience, tackling medium-sized branches (up to 15mm in diameter) with ease. The battery will give up to 75 minutes of use on a single charge, and when it has fully run down it will recharge fully in only 90 minutes. The lithium-ion technology also conveys a number of other benefits: the battery weighs 50% less than a standard battery, which has allowed Bosch to keep the weight of the whole machine extremely low. The battery will also store without self-discharging, so your cutter is ready to use whenever you want it, and will retain its full charge capacity for 4x longer than a conventional battery, giving you up to 8-10 years of regular use.

    The laser-cut, diamond-ground blade is 520mm long, allowing you to reach high above your head or tackle branches or shrubs in awkward places without straining yourself. The 15mm-spaced teeth get a firm grip on the branch and help prevent the blade from skidding, and Bosch have fitted their “Anti-block system” to the blade to prevent stalling and ensure a smooth, continuous cutting performance. Innovative micro-electronics detect when a branch cannot be cut through immediately, and adjust the running direction of the blade, reversing it several times to power through the tough branch.

    For added convenience, the battery is interchangeable with other compatible Bosch products, allowing you to purchase most of your tools without the battery included and save money.

    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.
