I'm reviewing the AHS70-34 hedge trimmer. This replaces a trimmer I had from Bosch that didn't have the power to cut through small branches.This however has no such issues.The trimmerIt has a 70 cm blade and 34mm teeth with a powerful 700 watt motor. The cable is 10 meters long.I've used it to trim a large hedge and I did it in less time and effort than my previous hedge trimmer. I've also trimmed a small tree with ease. The great thing about this trimmer is it has a sawing action so even if the blade teeth are smaller than the branch, a little sawing action will cut through it. With the blade being quite long the reach of the trimmer also helps with large hedges. I've got a tall hedge in my garden and I could cut the top of it without a ladder. The circular handle has 3 large red buttons positioned around it, which helps angle the blade to cut at various angles. It weighs only 3.9kg but this weight is evenly distributed.I use a premium oil spray on the blades to keep them in perfect condition. This can be purchased for around £5 from a diy shop.Overall really impressed with this purchase. It comes in a large box with the blade sticking out which is protected with a plastic cover.
I’ve recently had to replace my old 18v cordless Bosch hedge cutter after four years of service. To be fair to it our garden was perhaps larger than it was designed for as we have about 60m of 2m high hedges of that require regular maintenance. In the end the motor burned out on it so it was time for an upgrade. Although I love the convenience of cordless I had to concede that they don’t quite have the grunt to deal with our hedges, and I can’t bear the grief of petrol powered garden tools any more. If you’re a commercial gardener then yes, it’s a no brainer, but for the general gardener they’re just too much of a faff.So I went looking for a sturdy electric hedge cutter that would be up for the job. The majority of my garden and power tools are Bosch and I’ve never had call to doubt their quality. I’d had this Bosch cutter in my Amazon watchlist for sometime and fortunately it came up on a Lightening deal so I wasted no more time and purchased it. And it’s so much bigger compared to the cordless. Side by side it dwarfed the cordless machine. The blade is long and the cutting width is excellent. It utterly ploughs though the hedges and chomps through the thicker stems that would stop the cordless.It’s heavier than the cordless cutter, certainly, however that’s offset by the speed at which it gets the job done. The cable is a good length, but I would recommend getting a safety plug should you get a bit carefree with the blade. Overall I’m very pleased with this chunky monkey of a hedge cutter.
The good points of this Hedge trimmer is it cuts well and deeper into the hedge than my older one meaning i can keep the hedge under control better...It does get heavey once you have been using it a while but cutting down rather than up makes it easier...The safety lever and strart trigger are too big or too far apart dont know which but gripping the handle doesn't land your hand in the right place to comfortably squeeze the lever or trigger meaning if your fingers relax a bit it stops working so you have to consciously squeeze the lever and trigger making it a pain especially as your arms are getting tired but i have been able to reduce the height of the hedge which is what i wanted...
