Hedge-cutting made simple: Bosch is launching the EasyHedgeCut 18-45, a remarkably lightweight yet powerful cordless hedgecutter, as an 18-volt entry-level model. Weighing just 2.3 kilos, it cuts small, young hedges efficiently every time ̶ up to 160 square meters per battery charge. This is made possible by the optimum coordination of key components such as the motor and the gearbox, combined with an intelligent electronic system, the “Syneon Chip”, so that users can always benefit from the maximum runtime per battery charge. What’s more, the hedgecutter is powerful right up to the last cut: It holds its full power until the battery is empty. The tried-and-tested “Anti-Blocking system” celebrates its tenth anniversary this year. It ensures that work progresses rapidly, even when tackling thicker branches: If the blades fail to cut through a thick or particularly hard branch at the first attempt, micro-electronics in the motor adjust the running direction of the blades so that they are repeatedly applied to the same point until the branch has been cut through. This feature is unique to Bosch.

The EasyHedgeCut 18-45 features a new design in Bosch Pale Green and Black with high-quality surface. It offers great operating comfort thanks to its lightweight design and balance: It sits perfectly in the user’s hand, making it extremely easy to guide. The 450-millimeter diamond-ground blade, boasting a 15-millimeter tooth opening, ensures that small, young hedges are cut cleanly and efficiently. From small through to large and woody – whatever the hedge, Bosch can offer users just the right cordless tool, either 12, 18 or 36 volt. For large hedges, for example, we recommend the AdvancedHedgeCut 36. It allows users to cut up to 300 square meters per battery charge.

A smart combination: “Power for All” from Bosch

The EasyHedgeCut 18-45 is part of the “Power for All” battery system, which comprises DIY and garden tools. The same 18 volt lithium-ion battery can be used to operate more than 25 different power tools, from hedgecutters to rotary hammers. This enables do-it-yourselfers to do without batteries and chargers that they do not need, and they can save money at the same time. A “Power for All” logo on the packaging indicates which tools belong to the system.

The EasyHedgeCut 18-45 cordless hedgecutter will be available from Spring 2019. The price is the recommended retail price including VAT.
