Bosch POWER4ALL ART 23-18 LI 18v Cordless Grass Trimmer 230mm Cut without Battery or Charger

Seasoned lawn keepers expect two properties in a good Grass Trimmer above all else: long lasting performance, & the adaptability to reach every corner of their garden. Bosch have provided for the former by equipping the ART 23-18 LI with the Durablade system; built to last up to 12 times longer than their predecessors, the new blades deliver a precise, clean cut time after time. As to adaptability, Bosch also have that covered: at the touch of a button, the angle of the cutting head can be adjusted & the height of the trimmer can be altered. This enables horizontal & vertical cutting of lawn surfaces, edges & borders, under & around obstructions, for users of every height. Other useful features include the integrated plant protector, which guards larger vegetation & tree bark from damage while you trim, the SDS fitting system, which allows for rapid & hassle free blade substitution, & convenient replacement blade storage on the handle.

As part of the POWER4ALL family, you can use the batteries from any other POWER4ALL 18v tool to power this trimmer. Bosch's long lasting Lithium Ion Batteries are protected by the Bosch Electronic Cell Protection System, which defends against the damaging effects of overload, overheating & deep discharge, keeping your tools performing better for longer.

Available separately is the Bosch Wheel Attachment for ART Grass Trimmers. The wheel attachment clips onto the back of the trimmer for smooth guidance at a consistent height along your lawn's surface.

I owned a classic mains-powered flymo whipping line type strimmer but, as a fan of the power4all system, thought i would buy this as replacement. essentially, it is a great bit of kit, especially the fact that it compacts to about half its length for storage. However, its big failing is in the most important area, namely the cutting blade. Whipping line systems have a bit of give when the lines hit something and replenish as they break. Here, cutting/hitting anything other than soft grass causes the machine to slow down and the blade to wear away. As a result, it becomes less efficient, particularly when you want to spin the head through 90 degrees and cut a border edge. The blade is not now long enough to do the job effectively. In addition,i think the fixed blade makes it very sensitive to cut height - wander just a little too low and you end up with a bald patch that i rarely get with the line. a spool of flymo line costs about £4 and lasts pretty much a whole season, the bosch blades are about £1.50 each and i would guess you would need 10 or so for a season. I notice that bosch offer a 'durablade' alternative which is meant to last a lot longer than the ordinary ones, so i can't help thinking that might be in response to this problem. overall, frustrating. Potentially great, but let down by the very thing it is meant to do. I will use it for quick trimmimg jobs but keep my flymo for the heavier stuff and edge cutting.

Great cordless strimmer. Very quiet. I have batteries from other bosch devices, so buying just the strimmer without battery or charger made perfect economical sense.
