Product Description

The impressive Bosch UniversalHedgeCut 18-550 is a powerful new battery hedgetrimmer from the experts at Bosch. Packed full of great features, this tool offers great value, ease of use and unparalleled freedom of movement.

This model has 55cm laser-cut, diamond ground blades to work hard for you, giving a clean, precise cut which in turn can help improve the health of your hedges. The teeth at the front of the UHC 18-550 are specially designed to be used with a sawing action, which will allow you to cut branches up to 25mm in diameter.

Quick-cut technology ensures that twigs and branches are cut through easily first time, with a single sweep being enough to tackle most foliage. You’ll find that you’re able to tidy up your bushes much more efficiently than you would be with other, lower powered battery models. Bosch’s Anti-Blocking System prevents your new UniversalHedgeCut from stalling so you can cut continuously.

Weighing just 2.6kg, you’ll find your new hedgetrimmer lightweight and easy to control in use. The UHC 18-550 is ergonomically designed and can be used in different cutting positions to optimise comfort and minimise strain on the arms and the shoulders. Thanks to the softgrip rear handle, multi-position front handle, and the transparent hand guard, you’ll have no problems finding a comfortable working position.

Syneon Chip technology means that the UHC 18-550 will only use the power needed, conserving battery life for optimum performance and to maximise endurance in use. You’ll find other handy features, such as a blade tip protector for cutting alongside walls and paths.

The 18V battery (1.600.A00.DD6) is included with your tool, and is compatible with all the tools in the 18V Power4All range. You’ll also find your compact quick charger AL1815 (1.600.A00.N78) in your box so you’ll have everything you need to get started.

The Bosch UniversalHedgeCut 18-550 comes with a 2 year warranty. If you visit My Bosch and register your product within 28 days of purchase your warranty will be extended to 3 years. If you need anything looking at under warranty during this time, simply get in contact with Bosch directly who will collect, inspect, repair and return your item to you. They aim to do this within 5 working days of being made aware of the problem, so even if something does go wrong you shouldn’t be without your tool for more than a week.

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.
