Boschs ART 26 SL is an electric grass trimmer designed for the maintenance of lawn borders and long grass in smaller domestic gardens. The ART 26 SL offers a cutting width of 26cm suitable for either quick clearance of longer grass or precision trimming.

Some people get very excited about horticultural equipment, looking forward to nothing more than strapping on their brand new backpack brushcutter at the weekend and wading into the scrub to test out its abilities. Others, however, just want a tool that will get the job done with as little fuss as possible. If this latter approach to gardening sounds like you then you might want to invest in Bosch’s ART 26 SL, an electric grass trimmer which makes routine lawn maintenance in smaller domestic gardens reassuringly straightforward.

Equipped with a superbly efficient 280W electric motor, everything about the ART 26 SL seems to have been made with user-friendliness in mind. Unlike a petrol grass trimmer, for example, the ART 26 SL doesn’t require that you spend time and effort refuelling before setting to work, instead allowing you to simply plug into the mains and go. As an electric grass trimmer the ART 26 SL is also far quieter, cleaner running and easier to maintain than any petrol machine, while still delivering an impressive cutting speed of 12,500RPM. This makes the ART 26 SL perfect for trimming lawn borders, weeds and long grass in compact urban and residential gardens, where the noise and fumes produced by petrol equipment are particularly undesirable.

Supplied as standard with a dual nylon line trimmer head featuring a 26cm cutting width, Bosch’s ART 26 SL is also pleasingly effective throughout your garden; its power means that patches of long grass and nettles can be quickly dispatched, yet it still enables unerringly accurate trimming in trickier areas. To further ensure a stress-free user experience the cutting head also features a couple of clever innovations. The first of these is a semi-automatic line feed system which releases a controlled length of cutting line when the tool is switched on, thereby ensuring optimum performance and uninterrupted trimming. To facilitate routine maintenance, meanwhile, the ART 26 SL comes with a reliable “Pro-Tap” spool, which prevents the line from getting tangled up when the spool is changed.

But none of this would be worth much if the ART 26 SL wasn’t also easy to handle, so we should take a moment to appreciate its lightweight, well-balanced design. At only 1.8kg and with an ergonomic second handle included to ensure complete control, the ART 26 SL is ideal for precision trimming work and won’t strain your arms during operation. It’s even user-friendly when you’re not using it, with a storage hook included to keep the 6m power cable tidy during downtime. And with a two year manufacturer’s warranty supplied with every Bosch machine you can rest assured of dependable grass trimming performance for years to come with the ART 26 SL, allowing you to get the job done quickly and cleanly while still enjoying an immaculate finish every time.

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.
