Bosch AKE 30 Li Cordless Chainsaw – 30cm Bar

  • Product Details

    This chainsaw, with its innovative Lithium-ion battery technology, offers the ideal combination of power and convenience: no petrol, no cables to worry about, just the full power of the 36V battery at your fingertips instantly, wherever you choose to deploy it. The high-performance motor has the power and the torque to cope with every situation. The lack of a petrol engine means this machine is light enough to use with comfort for as long as necessary, weighing in at only 5.2kg, but the chain runs at 8m/s and the cutting length is 30cm, meaning this chainsaw is an effective piece of machinery in spite of its lightweight and compact design.

    The lithium-ion battery technology ensures this machine is quick to charge, taking only 90 minutes to charge fully, and also that the battery will not self-discharge when the saw is not in use. The battery is also long-lasting: Bosch’s tests show the saw will cut through 10cmx10cm pine up to 100 times on a single charge.

    This machine also features Bosch’s SDS system, which allows for chain replacement and tensioning without tools, for maximum convenience. Automatic oiling ensures clean, constant lubrication, and the unit also incorporates an oil-level indicator to allow the operator to prevent the 135ml oil tank from ever running dry. The saw has also been ergonomically designed, with softgrip technology for maximum operator comfort. The electronic kick-back brake, with audible warning, will stop the machine in 0.1seconds, 30% faster than safety standards recommend, giving you maximum peace of mind as you use your chainsaw.

    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.
