High power at reduced volume – this is the principle behind the new generation of corded hedgecutters from Bosch. Thanks to ProSilence technology, which prevents indirect risk of injury by sound reduction, the new tools are the quietest corded hedgecutters on the market. The sound power level of the Universal models is 91 decibels and of the Advanced models 93 decibels – which means the new hedgecutters are 80 percent quieter than their predecessors. Users can choose from a total of four different models: The UniversalHedgeCut 50, UniversalHedgeCut 60, Advan¬ced¬HedgeCut 65 and AdvancedHedgeCut 70 offer blade lengths from 50 to 70 centimeters and tooth openings from 26 to 34 millimeters. From the housing to the motor and blade: All components have been optimized to make hedge maintenance as efficient, comfortable and quiet as possible. The result: clean cuts with less effort.

High operating comfort

Whether for small, middle or large hedges ‒ the ProSilence hedgecutters fit perfectly to your hand, no matter the job, and provide a safe working. Thanks to their ergonomic design they are easy to operate: The user can comfortably grasp the handle and simply slide the hands along it to change position. It is not necessary to reach around. This enables users to trim and shape conifer, privet and laurel hedges of varying widths – comfortably and effortlessly. Work goes quickly, even when cutting woody hedges with thick branches. The UniversalHedgeCut 60, AdvancedHedgeCut 65 and Advan¬ced¬HedgeCut 70 models use a slipping clutch which allows the motor to rotate freely, without blocking blades, until the branch has been cut through. The integrated saw function also guarantees fast cutting results: It enables branches thicker than the tooth opening of 26 or 34 millimeters to be cut in the front part of the blade. This is possible because some of the teeth are shorter in this section, ensuring the branch sits directly on the blade. Diamond-ground blades guarantee a perfect finish. The knife tip has a protector to prevent damage when cutting along walls and floors.

The new Bosch hedgecutters complete the ProSilence range, which already offers lawnmowers and blowers for quieter, more convenient gardening.

The new ProSilence hedgecutters are now available. All prices are recommended retail prices including VAT.
