Not what I Expected
Loght easy to hold, good adjustment of the head and has a handy wheel to use when guiding along an edge.
The plastic blades seemed a good idea, however they are crap. I use at least 2 on a small yard and the genuine replacements are very expensive, the generic ones are cheaper but break very easy.
I now only use it for vertical cuts along the driveway and gutter edges and bought a line trimmer for all the rest. To tell the truth I havent got the Bosch out for a while.
This was probably a good unit back in Germany, but certainly NOT good enough fot buffalo lawn and around a rockery.
Outstanding for a suburban block.
I'm a lover of battery powered garden tools. I don't miss the fumes or the noise.
We have acreage with a front yard of about 1400m@, grass, garden and driveway.
Out back, dense scrubby bush, nasty thick weeds.
The trimmer is great for the front with, plenty of power.
90% of the time set on low speed.
More than enough for a suburban block.
The cutting is shot away from you, rather than towards you like some trimmers.
You can end up pretty clean after a cut with less stones flicked up at you too. :)
Doesn't like heavy weeds. It tears them, rather than cuts them due to the thinner line.
Better if the head tilted for edging.
It's light by trimmer standards, better if it was even lighter again.
Highly rate for suburban blocks and great for what we use it for.
