press release

The 36 volt garden tool range from Bosch is a powerful alternative to petrol tools or corded tools. Thanks to lithium-ion technology, the 36 volt interchangeable battery is both compact and powerful. It is used to power Bosch garden tools that need to deliver high performance due to their demanding tasks: currently all Rotak-LI lawnmowers, the AKE 30 LI chainsaw and the AHS 54-20 LI hedgecutter. Due to lithium-ion technology, they are lighter and quieter than petrol-driven models, require less maintenance and are free of exhaust fumes. Compared to mains-powered versions, these cordless tools offer greater mobility and flexibility: they can be used anywhere for example in bigger gardens that do not have a mains connection and without the time-consuming hassle of having to arrange extension leads.

New to the 36 volt range from February 2014:
ALB 36 LI leaf blower
The ALB 36 LI leaf blower reliably removes leaves and debris from entrances, footpaths, driveways and lawns. Its air speed can be adjusted from 180 to 265 kilometers per hour according to the relevant application. The air flow volume is between 100 and 150 cubic meters per hour. In combination with the low weight of only 2.8 kilograms, this leaf blower offers a very good power-to-weight ratio. The ALB 36 LI runs for up to 32 minutes per battery charge. The leaf blower always sits securely and comfortably in the hand thanks to its softgrip surface and balanced weight. When the work has been completed, the blower tube can be easily detached and placed next to the tool for storage.

ART 30-36 LI heavy duty trimmer
The ART 30-36 LI heavy duty trimmer quickly and thoroughly removes grass and scrub that threaten to overrun the garden. It has a cutting diameter of 30 centimeters and works with a 1.6 millimeter thick dual line which automatically extends when the accelerator switch is first pressed. Low user fatigue is ensured by a combination of the low weight of 4 kilograms and the second handle, which the user can individually adjust. Moreover, this tool is well balanced and sits securely and comfortably in the hand thanks to its softgrip surface. The heavy duty trimmer runs for up to 26 minutes per battery charge. Trimming is therefore impressively managed.

The ALB 36 LI leaf blower and the ART 30-36 LI heavy duty trimmer will be available at retail outlets from February 2014 onwards in the following versions:
  • without battery and charger for 119.99 euros and 149.99 euros respectively,
  • with 2.6 Ah battery and charger for 269.99 euros and 299.99 euros respectively.

All prices are recommended retail prices, including VAT. Accessories such as trimmer replacement spools and batteries of different capacities are available in the Bosch range of accessories.
