Bosch AHS 55-20 Li Cordless Hedgecutter

  • Product Details

    The impressive Bosch AHS 55-20 Li Cordless Hedgecutter is a powerful model created by the experts at Bosch. With a whole host of great features, this tool offers great value, ease of use and unparalleled freedom of movement.

    With 55cm cutting bar designed to work hard for you and give a clean, precise cut which in turn can help improve the health of your hedges. The teeth at the front are designed to be used with a sawing action, which will allow you to cut through thicker branches.

    Weighing just 2.6kg, you’ll find your new hedgetrimmer lightweight and easy to control in use. All Bosch’s tools have been ergonomically designed; this model can be used in different cutting positions to optimise comfort and minimise strain on the arms and the shoulders. Thanks to the rear handle, multi-position front handle, and transparent hand guard, we’re confident that you’ll be able to find a comfortable working position.

    Quick-cut technology ensures that twigs and branches are cut through easy – you’ll find that a single sweep is enough to tackle most foliage. Tidy up your bushes much more efficiently than you would be with other, lower powered battery models. Bosch’s Anti-Blocking System prevents your new AHS hedgecutter from stalling so you can cut continuously until the job is done.

    Syneon Chip technology allows you to just use the power needed, conserving battery life for optimum performance and maximum endurance. You’ll find other handy features, such as a blade tip protector for cutting alongside walls and paths.

    The 18V battery is included with your tool, and is compatible with all the tools in the 18V Power4All range. You’ll also find your charger in the box so you’ll have everything you need to get started.

    The Bosch AHS 55-20 Li Cordless Hedgecutter comes with a 2 year warranty. If you visit My Bosch and register your product within 28 days of purchase your warranty will be extended to 3 years.


    This supersedes the Bosch UniversalHedgeCutter 18-550 Battery Hedgetrimmer.

    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.
