Bosch AHS 54-20 LI Cordless Hedgecutter

  • Product Details

    The 54-20 Li is a powerful cordless hedge-cutter which would be ideal for anyone with a medium-large garden, or who has a tall hedge or thick shrub to deal with: its long blade and powerful battery mean it will confidently handle all your hedge-cutting needs.

    The big battery and long blade mean this is not the lightest hedge-cutter available from Bosch, at 3.5kg, but this is still light enough to allow you to lift and use the tool easily in any working position, including overhead, without strain on your back and arms. The balanced weight and ergonomic design help ensure this machine is comfortable to operate; even the trigger position has been worked out according to ergonomic principles to reduce strain on the operator.

    The cordless freedom provided by the battery will come as a welcome relief to those who have only ever used a mains-powered or petrol machine: no cables to untangle, trip over or sever; no smelly petrol fumes and low noise levels. The powerful 36V battery will cope easily with branches up to 25mm in diameter, and provides up to 50 minutes running time on a single charge. When the battery finally runs down it will recharge fully in only 45 minutes, which gives you a chance to have a cup of tea and get straight back to work without wasting time. The lithium-ion technology of this battery also provides other benefits, such as low weight: weighing 50% less than standard batteries, the Li battery has enabled Bosch to keep the weight of the whole tool to a minimum. The battery will also hold its charge while the tool is in storage, with no self-discharge, and will retain its full charge capacity for 4x longer than a conventional battery.

    At 54cm, the diamond-ground, laser-cut blade is long enough to enable you to reach branches that are high above your head or in awkward positions without uncomfortable stretching, and the 20mm-spaced teeth will get a firm grip and help prevent skidding. This model includes a sawing function at the end of the blade, which helps it cut branches up to 25mm in diameter, and Bosch have also incorporated their “Anti-block system”. This system helps to prevent stalling and ensure a smooth, continuous operation: innovative micro-electronics detect when a branch cannot be cut through straight away and instantly adjust the running direction of the blade, reversing it several times to give it the traction to power through the tough branch. For added convenience, this model is also fitted with a blade-protector, to give you peace of mind when cutting near obstacles such as walls.

    The 36V battery is also interchangeable with other compatible Bosch products, allowing you to purchase most items as bare tools and only one with the battery included, thus saving you 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.
