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.
