Bosch AHS 55-26 Electric Hedgecutters

  • Product Details

    This is a lightweight, powerful corded hedge-cutter which would be ideal for dealing with medium-large hedges or shrubs: its powerful motor and long blade, combined with clever design, ensure that this is the ideal way to cope with even the toughest hedge-trimming job.

    To make this cutter as easy to use as possible, it is 10% lighter than predecessor models, allowing you to use it for longer without strain on your back and arms. The weight has also been carefully balanced, and the handles have been ergonomically designed with a soft grip, to ensure comfortable use in any working position.  A see-through hand-guard also ensures optimum visibility for a safe cutting experience, and the multi-switch front handle makes it easy to use the machine in a variety of working positions.

    The powerful 600W motor is mains-powered, which gives you freedom  from the charging time of a battery-powered cutter and eliminates the need to work amid petrol fumes. It also gives an effective cutting performance, coping easily with a medium-large hedge. The high-torque clutch ensures this cutter will power easily through tough branches.

    The laser-cut, diamond-ground blade is 55cm long, giving you the ability to reach branches in awkward positions such as above your head with ease. The tooth-spacing of 26cm allows the blade to get a good grip on a branch, and the sawing function at the end of the blade allows you to tackle branches that are even bigger than the tooth-spacing:  this cutter will cope easily with branches up to 32mm in diameter. To avoid accidental damage to the blade when cutting near hard obstacles such as walls, this model is also fitted with a blade protector tip.

    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.
