Perfect for the job

  • Summary: Used this tool to hand trim my numerous conifers of all shapes and sizes. Tough and strong, you won't go wrong.

Not the usual Bosch robustness

C. C. Weaver, Amazon
1 November 2013
  • Summary: Bought for trimming wisteria, and small bushes. The teeth are long but not very wide, so I found it difficult to use on my wisteria. The diagram showing anti blocking in the Amazon page does not reflect the true shape of the blade - see www.amazon.co.uk/Bosch-10-8-Shrub-Shear-Blade/dp/B003MDEIP0/ref=pd_sim_diy_2 for the true shape and you'll realise it can only cope with branches <5mm.

Hedging my bets.

G. Robertson, Amazon

  • Summary: This little machine made life so much easier, giving bushes a short back and sides, and tidying up the hedge. It is not strong enough to cut bugger branches but solves the maintenance job absolutely.

Really good

Norrie, Amazon

  • Summary: This Shear performed extremely well. The only negative was that I found the red power button quite tricky to re-start every time I paused. Overall, this item has helped a pensioner to 'tame' her garden much quicker this autumn.

  • Summary: Very disappointing. This is just an expensive toy, not a useful tool. You can do the job quicker and more easily with a pair of hand shears. I had hoped it would help in cutting hedges from a ladder, but of no help at all. Probably the most useless thing I have ever bought!

Best purchase I've ever made

mad aunt agnes, Amazon

  • Summary: I love this hedge trimmer. It's lightweight and easy to use. I trimmed two yew trees, and a very large conifer hedge and there was still some charge left in it. I would recommend this in place of a normal hedge trimmer if you find them too heavy. It does a good job on hedges which are regularly trimmed and I had to stop myself going a bit mad and trimming too much. This job is not so much of a chore now.

An amazing little gadget!

doris, Amazon
11 October 2013
  • Summary: I have a long hedge beside my garden path and the new growth encroaches on the path and makes the walk to my garden very tricky. This trimmer is ideal - The hedge must be all of 80 feet long and six feet high and I trimmed the whole length of it in about 45 minutes, and I am certainly not young any more! I do not think it would cope with any jobs heavier than this before complaining, but for my needs it is PERFECT! Highly recommended.

Hand held shears with interchangeable cutters.

Oliver Dickens, Amazon
8 September 2013
  • Summary: An excellent tool for those occasions when a full size hedgetrimmer is too cumbersome for the job. There is a smaller powered version but I chose the 10.8v model which runs for quite a while on a charge and has the power to cut through largish shrubbery branches.
