Summary: " The Bosch AHS 55-16 was purchased as a replacement for my previous old trimmer. I was finding the old trimmer harder to use due to it's weight and the size of hedges I have. I chose the Bosch AHS 55-16 mainly for it's light weight, the length of the cutting blades and the reliability for which Bosch products are renowned. My choice has paid off.
Summary: " I've never used a hedge trimmer before, let alone owned one, so my expectations were not informed by experience! Hence they may have been too low, however...... I am thrilled with this piece of kit. It's a breeze to use and has gone through my horribly overgrown laurel hedge like a hot knife through butter. I only wish it could clear up the debris afterwards! I don't think the required two-handed operation is a problem.
Summary: " I purchased this product a week ago and have trimmed a conifer hedge some 25 metres long and 2.5 metres high since then with no effort. The cutters are quite light, easy to use and because of the safety element of needing to use both hands can be used accurately and effortlessly. They make light work of fairly thick branches.
Summary: " Have tried various makes while borrowing, but finally decided to buy my own! In it's price range, the best hedgecutter I have used to date. Nice and light and easy to use. Not too noisy and controls right under your hands. Must be remembered though, you cannot use one handed any more - both hands must be gripping the machine to operate. Would recommend this product.
Summary: " Great hedge cutter, my hedge is huge and this trimmer coped very well. It took me 3 hrs which is the best time I've ever done it in! Normally my arms are in agony the next day from lifting the trimmer, but with this one I hardly felt it. Would definitely recommend it to anyone. Very pleased.
