press release

The AMW 10 is the first electric multi-tool system from Bosch for the garden. It is a trimmer, pole hedgecutter and pole pruner in one, and therefore covers three main functions required for garden care with only one tool.

Power unit with click system for fast changing of attachments
The centerpiece of the AMW 10 is the 1 000 watt power unit that delivers high power for every application. It has an individual adjustable handle to adapt to different tasks and arm lengths. Furthermore, it is easy to hang up and store thanks to its short length of about one meter and its integrated hook. The attachments are fitted to the tube of the power unit in only three steps: loosen the adjusting knob, insert the attachment until it clicks in, and tighten the adjusting knob. The trimmer, pole hedgecutter or pole pruner is then ready to use.

With the trimmer attachment fitted, the AMW 10 is about 1.7 meters long and weighs 5.5 kilograms. Its angled drive shaft makes work easier, as does the supplied shoulder strap. The 3.5 millimeter thick durable cutting sticks cut the grass very cleanly. A cutting diameter of 36 centimeters ensures rapid work progress.

The pole hedgecutter attachment has a blade length of 43 centimeters and a tooth opening of 15 millimeters. When it has been clicked in to the power unit, the overall length of the tool is about 2.3 meters. The blade can be rotated a full 180 degrees, enabling it to be individually adapted to the specific work situation. For example, this makes it possible to also cut the horizontal surface of a higher hedge without having to climb a ladder.

The pole pruner attachment is a chainsaw with a cutting length of 25 cen-timeters. It can either be clicked directly into the power unit or into an extension pole. Without the extension the tool is about 2.1 meters long. With the extension it is 2.8 meters long. It saws at a high chain speed of twelve meters per second. The automatic lubrication system ensures that the chain never runs out of oil.

All three attachments are just as easy to store as the power unit thanks to the hook on the end of their tube. The durable cutting sticks for the trimmer and the bar and chain for the pole pruner are part of Bosch’s accessory range.
