The Bosch UniversalHedgeCut 18-500 is a powerful cordless hedgetrimmer with 50cm laser cut, diamond grounds blade and range of impressive features. Thanks to improvements in Lithium-ion technology, battery tools have become a fantastic alternative to corded garden equipment, and even their petrol counterparts.
This model features Quick-Cut technology which means you can cut through twigs and branches of different sizes effortlessly first time round, making your hedge cutting quicker and more efficient. The specially designed front teeth can be used to saw thicker branches (up to 25mm in diameter). The blade tip protector allows you to work along walls and path without causing damage.
The patented electronic Anti-Blocking System also prevents the blades from stalling to help ensure a continuous cut. Reliability is also guaranteed by Bosch’s Syneon Chip. This integrated electronic control system means that you only use the power you need for the work you’re doing (thicker branches require more power, while small twigs will need less). At the same time, the chip prevents overheating which will help extend the life of your hedgetrimmer by protecting the motor.
The Bosch UniversalHedgeCut 18-500 is also lightweight (just 2.5kg) and designed for ergonomic handling, meaning less strain on the arms and shoulders during use. The well balanced tool features a soft-grip rear handle, an adjustable front handle, and a transparent hand guard for comfort and visibility in any working position.
This model comes complete with a 18v Lithium-ion battery (1.600.A00.DD6) and compact quick charger (AL 1815 CV 1.600.A00.N78) which can be used interchangeably with the other tools in the Bosch 18v Power4All range. Charging takes approximately 90 minutes, and Bosch estimate that you will be able to cut up to 160 square metres on a single charge.
The Bosch UniversalHedgeCut 18-500 is supplied with a two-year Bosch warranty, which can be extended to three years by registering online with MyBosch within 28 days of purchase.
