This is a lightweight, corded hedge-cutter with a long blade which would be ideal for anyone with a small-medium hedge or garden. Its diamond-ground blade is 55cm long, giving you the reach to deal easily with any branch in an awkward position. The 16mm tooth-spacing ensures the blade gets a good grip on a branch, reducing skidding and helping the blade power through tough material.

In spite of the long blade, this machine is extremely light: weighing only 2.7kg, it is light enough for anyone to use easily whatever their strength. The weight has also been carefully balanced, and the handles have been designed according to ergonomic principles to ensure the tool is always as comfortable as possible to use in any working position.

The 450W motor is powerful enough to cope easily with any small or medium hedge or shrub in your garden, and the mains-powered technology also gives you freedom with the problems associated with battery power, such as running out of charge, or with petrol power, such as having to work in noise and fumes. The 55-16 has also been designed to be as small and streamlined as possible for maximum manoeuvrability.

For maximum safety, this tool is supplied with a blade cover.

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.
