The AKE 30 S is a lightweight, manoeuvrable chainsaw. Weighing in at only 3.9kg it is the lightest chainsaw available from Bosch, making it easy to use whatever the operator’s strength or experience. Lightness does not equate to lack of power, however: the 1800W motor gives both an efficient power-to-weight ratio and an easy cut, and the chain speed of 9m/s ensures a fast and precise cutting performance. This machine is also ergonomically designed, with a soft-grip handle to make both sawing and felling as comfortable an experience as possible.

The 30cm blade gives enough reach for an easy cut without becoming unwieldy, and the strong steel teeth ensure good leverage, an accurate cut and a firm grip. This also reduces the possibility of kickback, although to minimise the risk to the operator even further this machine is fitted with an electronic rapid-response kickback brake, which will stop the machine in 0.1s, 30% faster than safety standards recommend. For extra safety, the chain features a safety catch bolt. The chain is also easily replaced thanks to the Bosch SDS system, which eliminates the need for tools when changing the chain.

The 30 S also features a conveniently large 200ml oil reservoir, with a level indicator for maximum convenience. The automatic oiling system also ensures a continuous smooth operation, allowing the operator to use the chainsaw with complete peace of mind.

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.
