Thanks to its power-assist technology for power-assisted cutting, Bosch’s Easy Prune cordless secateurs makes gardening even easier. Whether you’re pruning flowers, thinning out individual branches in hedges or trimming shrubs, bushes and fruit trees, the EasyPrune lets you make cuts effortlessly and with one hand. Where conventional secateurs reach their limits, the EasyPrune’s power-assist technology is just getting started: It cuts through branches of up to 25 millimeters in diameter effortlessly, and at just 490 grams, you can hold it comfortably in your hand.

Power assistance for full control – here’s how it works:

Cutting different material types and thicknesses requires different amounts of force. This is where Bosch’s power-assist technology comes in: If the force needed for cutting exceeds a set limit, the electronic power-assist function will automatically cut in. A cable will start to wind up so that the upper and lower handles move toward one another. Once the branch is completely cut, the coupler will release the cable and the blades will open again. To ensure that the cutting operation is controlled at all times, the power-assist function only cuts in when the handles are actively squeezed together as they would be with conventional secateurs. A choice of three different settings also lets you adjust the power assistance to your specific needs. The result is that, however many cuts you make, your hand will not tire because the EasyPrune makes light work of cutting all types of branches, thick or thin.

Cut not crushed: A clean result

From fibrous materials such as wilted tulips to thick shrubbery, the EasyPrune guarantees a smooth, clean cut thanks to its bypass cutting system, whereby the blades slide past one another. This system allows for even cutting without having to stop, remove the tool and reposition it where you want to continue the cut. This makes it a cut above the rest. The EasyPrune’s two blades are made from highquality stainless steel. The upper blade can be replaced in no time at all: Simply take the old blade out, put the new blade in, tighten the screw using the hex key provided and you’re done!

The EasyPrune can cut through branches 25 millimeters thick up to 450 times with just one battery charge. When the battery is fully discharged, it can be recharged using the Micro USB charger. An indicator shows the charging progress, and helps you keep track of how much charge is left when you are using the tool.

The EasyPrune cordless secateurs will be available from January 2018 onwards. The prices listed are recommended retail prices including VAT. Subject to change.
