Bosch AHS 70-34 Electric Hedgecutters

  • Product Details

    This is a powerful hedge-cutter with a very long blade which is capable of coping with the very toughest hedge-cutting conditions: a long or tall hedge or shrub is easily dealt with thanks to the powerful motor, long blade and a range of clever features.

    This cutter has been designed to be as light and easy to use as possible: it weighs 15% less than predecessor models, allowing you to cut for longer without strain on your back or arms. The weight has also been carefully balanced to make the cutter as manoeuvrable as possible, and the handles have been ergonomically designed with a soft grip on the front handle for comfort. The front handle also incorporates multiple switches in different positions, designed to make cutting easy in any working position, whether sideways or upside down. The hand guard is see-through for optimal visibility while working.

    The powerful 700W motor is mains-powered, giving you freedom from battery charging times and petrol fumes. It also has the power to deal easily with tall, thick hedges and woody shrubs: the high-torque clutch ensures a powerful cutting performance. This model is also fitted with electronic “Softstart”, which accelerates the motor gradually and smoothly to top speed, thus helping to reduce kickback.

    The 70cm laser-cut, diamond-ground blade gives you the reach to deal easily with tall or deep hedges, and to reach branches in awkward positions. 34mm tooth-spacing ensures the blade can get a good grip on a branch, which helps to reduce skidding. The saw function at the end of the blade allows you to deal with branches that are even larger than the tooth diameter: up to 38mm in diameter. The blade is also fitted with a metal tip, to protect it when cutting near hard obstacles such as walls.

    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.
