The ART 23-18 LI grass trimmer works with a completely new, especially durable cutting system. The working height, the tilt of the second handle and the position of the trimmer head can be conveniently adjusted.


This trimmer is one of a new generation of cordless grass trimmers from Bosch, and as such it has been improved in a number of ways compared to older models. The innovative Durablade cutting system is as energy-efficient and accurate as the older cutting systems, but the blades are now made from a durable material which ensures that they will last up to 12x longer than their predecessors. Even the housing of the cutting system has been re-designed to offer maximum protection to the blade: if the blade hits a hard object such as a stone, it will instantly withdraw into the cutting system to protect itself before centrifugal force pushes it out again to carry on cutting.

This trimmer also incorporates lithium-ion technology in its 18V battery, which conveys advantages beyond the ordinary benefits of battery technology (such as the freedom from cables and sockets, and no need to buy or store petrol): the battery will deliver up to 26 minutes of trimming on a single charge, and will charge fully in only 1.5 hours. The lithium-ion technology also means the battery will not self-discharge when the machine is not in use, and will retain its full charge capacity for up to 4x longer than conventional batteries.

The auxiliary handle can now be easily adjusted to suit your working position by simply twisting a knob, and the height of the telescopic handle can also be easily adjusted by means of the new pushbutton for maximum convenience. The 90° rotating cutter head can now be easily switched between edging and trimming with a single click for maximum convenience, so you can shift effortlessly from trimming under a bench to edging a flowerbed.

These benefits are in addition to those which were already in evidence on older Bosch models, such as the angle adjustment on the trimmer shaft for easy working under bushes and benches and the plant protector bar, which ensures that the front of the trimmer remains at a safe distance from obstacles such as walls, and from the plants in your flowerbed. The ergonomic design is also a benefit of a Bosch product: the machine has been designed with your comfort in mind, from the telescopic height adjustable handle to the carefully balanced design and low weight of only 2.4kg. The Bosch SDS system ensures that the blades can be changed easily with no need for tools. There is also a handy storage area for spare blades on the trimmer shaft. All of these conveniences are characteristic of Bosch machines, but as you may see above, there are additional benefits to be gained by purchasing one of these new generation machines.

The Bosch ART 23-18 LI now features Bosch’s Syneon Chip which manages the interaction between the battery, motor and gear. This is achieved by monitoring the power needed, controlling the motor voltage, and managing the battery temperature. This will ensure you get the optimum power and endurance from your tool until the job is complete.

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.
