The impressive Bosch UniversalHedgeCut 18-550-2 is an impressive new lithium-ion battery hedgetrimmer from the experts at Bosch, and benefitting from two 18V batteries for coping with larger areas of hedge. Packed full of great features, this tool offers value, ease of use and complete freedom of movement.
Thanks to the 55cm laser-cut, diamond ground blades, you will find that this model will give a clean, precise cut which is really important when it comes to the long term health of your plants. Another useful feature is the front teeth on the UHC 18-550-2 which can be used with a sawing action to tackle thicker branches, up to 25mm in diameter.
The Bosch UniversalHedgeCut 18-550-2 is designed to cut through branches with a single sweep. This is achieved thanks to the quick-cut technology which ensures that twigs and branches are cut through easily first time. As a result you’ll find that hedgetrimming becomes a much quicker and easier job than it would be with other, lower powered battery models. Bosch’s Anti-Blocking System also works to prevent your new UniversalHedgeCut from stalling so you can cut continuously.
This hedgetrimmer is impressively lightweight (just 2.6kg), which makes it 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 which features in all the latest Bosch battery models means that the UHC 18-550-2 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 two 18V batteries (1.600.A00.DD6) come included with your hedgetrimmer, and they are 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. That means if you want to purchase more from the Bosch battery range you can opt for baretool (the tool without battery or charger included) to save some money, and you’ll be able to use these batteries for the job.
