Bosch AKE 40 Electric Chainsaw

  • Product Details

    The AKE 40 is a lightweight chainsaw, designed to be both powerful and easy to use. Its well-balanced 1800W engine is powerful enough to give an easy cut, and the chain speed of 9m/s allows for a fast and precise cutting performance. It is also easy to handle, being both light (the 40 weighs in at just 4.1kg) and ergonomically designed for both sawing and felling.

    The 40cm blade is fitted with large steel tines for firm grip, good leverage and an accurate cut. This also reduces the possibility of kickback, although if kickback does occur the safety of the operator is ensured by the electronic rapid-response kickback brake, which will stop the machine in 0.1seconds, 30% faster than safety standards recommend. The machine also features a functional run-down brake for maximum safety.

    The machine also features an automatic lubrication system for smooth, uninterrupted use, and the oil cap filter ensures clean lubrication for longer service life. The large capacity oil reservoir and oil level indicator help to ensure the machine will never run dry. The oil is biodegradable, so the machine is as environmentally friendly as it is user-friendly.

    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.
