Bosch AHS 55-20 LI 18v Cordless Hedge Trimmer 550mm
Battery AH Explained
The best way to describe battery amp hour is that this is effectively the size of your fuel tank, the more amp hours your battery has then the longer the battery will last between charges. More amp hours does not increase the power of a given tool.
Battery Voltage Explained
A tool with a higher voltage than another is a bit like choosing an engine in a car, the higher voltage will generally mean higher power & performance. As with cars though a bigger engine does not always translate to better performance so it is important to compare the specifications of tools at different voltages between different manufacturers.
The Bosch Power4all Tool range is a range of tools you can buy knowing that batteries are compatible with all tools in the range providing they are of the same voltage. eg 18v fits 18v, 12v (10.8v) fits 12v (10.8v) etc. Please also note that 10.8v is compatible with 12v & vice versa as it is just a name change. Indego Lawnmowers also use the Power4all 18v battery but require a cover plate to be removed if changing.
Power4all has many advantages not least the fact that once you have a tool with a few batteries then there is no need to buy the more expensive versions with battery & charger, you can just go ahead & buy the much cheaper no battery versions!
So remember Power4all signifies complete battery compatibility throughout the range. There is however, one caveat to this, some of the very first older chargers will not charge the very latest batteries & a battery charger upgrade will be required if you have a first generation charger. All batteries fit all tools however.
As of 2021 Bosch has licensed Power4all to other manufacturers whereby batteries between these manufacturers will be interchangeable.
You cannot use Bosch Pro (Blue) batteries in either 12v or 18v DIY (Green) products.

Not used yet as it is a Christmas present for someone
After my 9yr old Bosch 52ahs had a switch problem, and having checked the probable cost of repair, decided to buy the new version I have used it once and performs as well as my old one or possible better very happy with it
Light and well balanced with plenty of power (which I was pleasantly surprised about with the hedge trimmer being battery powered). Also able to use batteries and charger from my Bosch drill which saved me some money.
I like the lightweight and the extra length, but I find it slightly-noisier than my mains-powered hedge trimmer.
Was pleased with the weight of the product and the ease of use. Had to wait three weeks for delivery due to the “virus”? Would use the company again due to ease of ordering.
Already had battery and charger so bought bare cutter, very light in weight and easy to use. Overall very pleased with the product.
Great to be able to buy a device where I can use the same battery as my drill
I haven't had this long, so it's hard to comment much on reliability and so on, but it seems well made (which should be a given from Bosch) and cut as much of the hedges on one battery charge as I expected - I wanted a break more than it did. It cuts well, and I had no problem on the privet, including sections which I cut back quite hard. If you are going to have one thing that's cordless in the garden, a hedge trimmer has got to be your first choice.
Good product delivered in record time
Excellent service from Tooled-Up
A great tool and seemingly an improvement both mechanically and ergonomically on the predecessor (also li-ion) bosch model. Light to use and cuts well. Hopefully the motor shafts will not fatigue fracture which plagued the previous bosch models which I have owned.
Electronic fault causing hedge cutter to cut out and re starting was intermittent. This was noticable after the machine had done some cutting.
Customer Questions & Answers
Q : Will the battery from a gsb55-20li fit the ahs55-20li .
A : I believe that is a Bosch Professional (Blue) drill, in which case the batteries are not compatible. The AHS 55-20 is part of the Home and Garden / Power4All (Bosch Green) range which uses a different kind of battery.
Q : Can I use my 1.5ah 18V 4AH batteries with this hedge trimmer. They are form the PSB -1800 -LI2
A : Hi James, yes - this hedge trimmer is suitable for use with all Bosch Power4All 18v lithium ion batteries. Note however that the 1.5ah ones have the smallest capacity of the range so you won't be able to get as much hedge trimmed on a single charge
Q : What height does the bosch ahs 55-20 reach to.
A : I can confirm that this hedge trimmer has a blade length: 550mm. the height it can cut to would be solely depending on how tall you are.
