Product Description

The Bosch UniversalChain 18 is a relatively new chainsaw design from Bosch that fits into its more compact and reliable 18 volt class. Don’t let its small size fool you – Bosch designs for reliability and durability, and the chainsaw’s relatively short blade doesn’t stop it from being useful for cutting between 70mm and 130mm of wood in a single cut. It’s also got an excellent power-to-weight ratio, weighing only three kilograms.

The compact, lightweight nature of this design and its cordless rechargable power system make it ideal for sawing in difficult positions or applying considerable precision to a cutting job, meaning that the Bosh Universalchain is excellent for landscapers or as a utility tool. It’s good for inexperienced users thanks to built in recoil protection, an ergonomic SoftGrip handle with handguard and a simple integrated SDS system that makes toolless assembly and maintenance easy. The recoil guard also helps it cut smoothly and cleanly, promoting healthy regrowth of wood.

The Bosch UniversalChain 18 Cordless Chainsaw can usually manage up to 40 cuts in soft wood with a diameter of 100mm, a good run time, and holds full power until the battery dies completely. It also shares a battery with a number of other systems, with multiple Bosch products using the same battery to make swapping them out easy. It’s a good utility chainsaw to have in reserve or a good home chainsaw for garden use, and should be a feature in any keen tree-surgeon’s shed.

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.
