Every now and then we need to prune those overgrowing trees. Assessing the job, the trusted loppers just wont cut it and the jobs too small or tight for the chainsaw, then the ideal tool is the Cordless Garden Saw.

There are a couple of options for this job: Cordless Garden Saw and the mini chainsaws (also called NanoBlade saws). I have the priviledge of owning both, and there are positives and negatives to using both. If you are doing other wood work jobs other than pruning, then the Cordless Garden Saw is the one for you. It also has the cleaner cut, but the biggest disadvantage is the weight, the Cordless Garden Saw is about 30% heavier (depending upon models).

The Mini Chain saws are lighter and have a circular motion same as the regular one, the Cordless Garden Saws have a horizontal cutting blade, which goes 'in and out' quickly which causes more vibration than the Mini Chain Saws.

When it comes down to price, there is not alot in them, and same with the spares and accessories.

The Keo Cordless Garden Saw has a large selection of interchangable saws for wood, plastic and copper pipe, if you have more jobs to do around the house.

If you add the Cordless Pruning Shears into the comparison, then both the Mini Chains Saws and the Cordless Garden Saws beat the Pruning Shears hands down, so if your looking for a pruning tool go for either the Mini Chains Saws or the Cordless Garden Saws.

Product description:

The Bosch KEO is a compact and lightweight reciprocating garden saw powered by an integral 10.8 volt lithium-ion battery. It has been designed to fill the gap between secateurs and chainsaws, where the usual alternative for cutting back medium-sized branches would be a handheld pruning saw. It is lightweight and features a detachable A-grip hook for improved performance even on unsupported branches. The unique A-hook removes the need for a second hand to support the branch while cutting.

The KEO’s Swiss precision blades provide a clean cut, and the Bosch SDS system makes blade changing easy and tool-free. The cutting diameter achieved can be up to 60 mm with the A-grip hook attached, and 80 mm without. It is designed to suit a wealth of different cutting applications around the house and garden, using any of the blades from the Bosch ‘All-Purpose’ saw range.

The KEO has been ergonomically designed to be perfectly balanced and has a soft grip handle, making it comfortable to use. It is also lightweight at only 900g without the hook, and just 1.1kg when the hook is attached. Its simple one-handed operation enables awkward branches to be cut back without the need for assistance in reaching both hands or arms into a tree or oversized bush.

The KEO’s SDS system allows easy, tool-free blade changes at the push of a button, for maximum versatility. Blade sets are available in packs of either 3 or 5 for cutting through wood, plaster board and metal, depending on which blade has been selected. There are even flexible blades for ‘flush’ cutting.

  • 10.8 V lithium-ion integrated battery for a powerful performance - no self-discharge, no memory effect, always ready to use
  • Softgrip and ergonomic shape for increased manoeuvrability, safety lock prevents unintentional activation
  • Easy saw blade changes for use on a variety of garden materials
  • Quick stop and hand guard for increased safety, easy charging due to mobile phone-type charger
  • Detachable A-Grip for high performance in unsupported branches

steady rate of work and you can't manage a bigger tool then this is perfect. - by , June 05, 2018
5 / 5stars

Bought mine in 2014 and bless it every time I use it it's made such a difference to my gardening. I have 70m of thick growing wych elm that I tackle each year with this. I don't have much upper body strength so ended up searching reviews for products suitable for disability and this came up. It has a relatively short duty cycle before needing recharging but I need to rest myself ever half hour or so and my saw charges up at the same rate as my body.

Obviously it's a case of tools for the job. If you're a strong person wanting to work all day then buy a heavier petrol fuelled product. If you're just interested in taking the effort out of pruning on a slow, steady rate of work and you can't manage a bigger tool then this is perfect.


Good for small, quick jobs but has limitations - by , September 03, 2016
3 / 5stars
I bought the Bosch KEO specifically to assist with pruning a number of trees in my garden and chose it over other alternatives for it's price, A-grip and because the battery was included (the battery is an expensive extra on many others). It is not too heavy, has a comfortable grip and charged in the 3 hours stated. The saw easily cut through all the branches needed and the A-grip is effective at stopping branches vibrating uncontrollably as they are cut (it's important to make sure the branch is sat squarely / tightly at the apex of the A). I haven't yet tried the saw on anything but branches so can't comment on its performance with other materials. For short garden jobs it is an effective tool and has enabled me to safely use it in parts of the garden not easily reached with cable extensions or where there is water. The main drawback and referred to in a number of reviews is the battery life - it's very short. I haven't measured it with a watch but after about 20 mins of cutting and clearing the debris into a sack the battery was flat. The 10.8v battery is clearly struggling and Bosch should really have fitted an 18v but this may also have increased the price. In summary, works well for short periods of time in remote places where a mains saw would be awkward. If you need a saw for long cutting periods / heavy duty work you should probably consider an alternative.

The Bosch Universal Chain 18 Cordless Chainsaw is a wonderful little tool for those intermediate logging and tree felling jobs. They are very mobile and easy to carry around the garden, they weigh around 3 kg. I have a Black n Decker, works great for about an hour, which is about sufficient for most garden pruning jobs. When the battery starts to die down, it can start to jam, additionally when it gets to the center of a branch, it can jam. Freeing it from the center of a branch can be arkward. On a whole it is a great buy, alot more advantages than disadvantages, the main advantage I find is, yes it is a chainsaw and works the same as petrol powered chainsaws, but I feel alot more comfortable using them than the petrol ones, I am a bit scared of the petrol ones, I am sure it is just in my head.

They are really handy and easy to use, decent battery life and I think they are reasonably priced at Only £149.99, there is not alot between them in the ratings.

Great piece of kit - by , May 22, 2020
5 / 5stars

Great piece of kit! First point - I removed the tip guard (see pic). Anyone removing safety equipment clearly does so at their own risk and I'm not recommending it, but it is easy for a competent DIYer (just drill out the soft metal rivets) and the resulting tool is hugely functional. Used with two hands I think it very safe anyway - although the handguard isn't linked to the brake, the saw doesn't have much of a kick and stops instantly when you release the trigger. It's light and easy to wield even at your feet or above your head - much more so than a full size chainsaw - and the resulting 8 inch blade is great both for proper cutting ( 8 inch fenceposts and logs) and cutting a path through dense rhododendrons. The 2.0 Ah battery lasts me an hour of intermittent use when brush cutting, but you want a spare. I have one from my Bosch PSA 18 LI 18v sabre saw which I like but the chainsaw is far more usable. I only use the sabre saw now where access is tricky and only its long narrow blade can get in there. I've owned the UniversalChain 6 mths and no problems so far - It feels well made and robust, like the Bosch green kit generally is. Enjoy.

Great little machine . Easy to set up and very good for pruning and cutting small branches . A little expensive when the price of a battery and charger is included but that’s a normal whinge with cordless - why don’t all cordless tools use compatible batteries !

Now we are in to the Big Boy section, but these are not Toys. These chainsaws are professional machines, expertly manufactured with daily use in mind.

When it comes to quality, Stihl Chainsaws are renowned to be the best. I have this model: MS171 14 inch Petrol Chainsaw by STIHL, it is nearly the baby in the range and it has not let me down yet.

To be honest, I do not use it every day, neither have I used it to chop down a 30 meter high tree, but if you need to, this will do the job. I use it when a tree gets blown down in our northern weather and I have to clear it.

There is a nack to pull starting it, with the pull cord starter, you need to prime it, choke it up and a couple of half pulls and then a full pull and off it goes, if at first, it floods. But once it is warm, they start so easy.

Once its up and running, it is a wonderful cutter, powerful and fast, afterall it is a professional chainsaw.

This is not a toy and you really need to wear the full safety equipment when using it. As a professional chainsaw in comparison to the cordless chainsaws, it weighs only 25% more, I hardly notice it and the price is very competitive @ Only £336.92.

Stihl - MS171 14 inch Petrol Chainsaw

MS171 14 inch Petrol Chainsaw STIHL

Rated 4.2/5 based on 5 customer reviews.

£336.92 In stock

Product description:

One of a new generation of occasional use saws, the STIHL MS 171 chainsaw features reduced-emission engine technology. Reducing fuel consumption by up to 20% compared to its predecessor, this innovative saw saves the user both time and money. Ideal for homeowners, the STIHL MS 171 is good for cutting firewood, felling small trees or completing clean up tasks

  • Advanced combustion technology Four overflow channels swirl the fuel-air mix before ignition, allowing for optimum combustion and highly efficient performance. The result is lower fuel consumption and high torque across a broad rpm range.
  • Anti-vibration system Intense vibration at the handles of power tools can lead to long-term effects on blood vessels in the hands and arms. STIHL has therefore developed an effective anti-vibration system whereby the oscillations from the machine's engine are dampened which significantly reduces vibrations at the handles.
  • Pre-separation air filtration system STIHL long-life air filtration systems with pre-separation achieve perceptibly longer filter life compared with conventional filter systems. Air drawn in is swirled. The larger, heavier particles are ejected. The pre-cleaned air is routed to the air filter via the pre-separator duct.
  • Compensator This controller in the carburettor prevents the fuel-air mixture getting richer as the air filter becomes clogged. The correct quantity of fuel is delivered to the carburettor depending on the quantity of air passing through the air filter. This keeps the fuel/air ratio in the combustion mixture constant and hence also the engine power. The filter doesn't need to be cleaned until an appreciable drop in power occurs.
  • Single-lever master control All important functions such as start, choke, throttle and stop are operated via a single lever
  • Side chain tensioner. The tensioning screw can be found on the side of the chain saw through the sprocket cover. This removes the need for contact with the sharp saw chain.
  • Sound pressure level dB(A): 99 - 112
  • Weight: 4.3 kgs

The Bosch Cordless Nano Blade Saw is a wonderful little tool for those inbetween jobs. For hard wood pruning jobs which are too strong for the loppers and too small or too tight an area for a chain saw, the Hand Held Mini Chainsaws are perfect for the job.

The Bosch EasyCut 12 Cordless Nano Blade Saw with 12 V Lithium-Ion Battery is highly rated within its class, it is easy to use, light weight and cuts branches upto 8 cm in width with ease. The unique Nano blades are easy interchangable (different blades available, optional extras), cleaned and replaced.

This is an ideal gift for those who like their toys, given the technowledgy that goes into this precision tool I think it is reasonably priced at Only £113.42.

Product description:

The easy cut 12 from Bosch is fast and convenient for precise cutting. The handy device is the world's first general-purpose saw with nano blade, a saw blade with a surrounding micro-chain. This consists of four millimetre small chain links - similar to a chain saw, but much smaller. The advantage of the encircling micro-chain is that the lifting movement means vibrations are incredibly low ensuring a smooth cut. The nano blade is also durable and maintenance-free: No oiling, sharpening or re-tensioning of the chain is required. In addition, the micro-chain itself does not increase with resinous wood.

  • The Bosch nanoblade saw easy cut 12 – sawing has never been so easy
  • Compact and convenient cordless saw for easy, low-vibration indoor and outdoor sawing jobs. Cutting depth in plastic: 30 mm
  • Sawing experience - wide range of applications such as sawing free hand and plunge cuts without pre-drilling

Very impressed, a handy tool to have! - by , February 11, 2018
5 / 5stars

I always wanted a handy tool such as this, in my various hobbies I'm forever cutting small branches so decided to buy the Easycut 12.

Very fast delivery from Amazon, it arrived Sunday morning and I couldn't wait to take it up the garden. It does exactly what the videos show it doing, it cuts small branches as if they were butter and in no time I had trimmed down some overgrown bushes and large twigs too without any effort on my part. It won't handle very small thin growths though, a hedge trimmer would be better, but after all, it IS a chain saw.

The only thing I found slightly annoying was getting the battery out for charging, the 2 buttons you have to press in on the battery sides were as stiff as a frozen block of wood and it wore my grip out trying to press them, but I am a pensioner so perhaps it's my age.....lol. Anyway, they eventually let go of their grip and the battery came out, on inspection the lugs were just new and unused so hopefully with time they'll loosen up a bit. Overall I'm very impressed with the tool and am glad I added it to my woodworking collection, I would definitely recommend it for doing smallish jobs up to about 2" diameter.


Disappointed - by , November 14, 2020

Dissappinted that cutting blade was shorter than expected. Yes it did cut 1inch easily but anything above 1.5 inches was a struggle. The impression from the video and pictures gives a false view of what it an cut.

I have a Black+Decker Scorpion Saw, an older model, infact it is about 20 years old and still works perfectly. It is one of my favourite tools. Its primary function is for wood working, cutting planks, I use it for logging. It is excellent at cutting both green and seasoned wood, it is corded therefor it will work for longer, I use it for 3 to 4 hours without it overheating. Granted I am not logging everyday, probably 60 - 80 hours hours a year, so it should last another 20 years, I have not even changed the blade.

The blade has crocodile teeth which moves horizontally in and out at an exceptional speed, it only moves about 5mm, which makes the cutting action. As it moves horizontally, like in conventional sawing, you have to angle it for optimal performance.

This is an ideal gift for anyone who does some logging, if you were to buy me a new one, i would love you forever. I cant say anything bad about it, and at Only £50.00 it is an absolute bargain.

Why didn't I buy this sooner?! - by , September 16, 2018
5 / 5stars

I am a very basic diy er - always plenty to do but completely unqualified... Yep I just muddle my way through! Recently, I have made garden planters, a bed, wooden walls, a decorative ladder and a few wooden plinths but due to me not wanting to reward my basic skills, with anything other than a very cheap saw, I resisted buying this - until I was faced with a 60 foot eucalyptus tree. I cut one down 2 years ago (with said cheap saw) but this was so much more than i could face again! I read reviews stating it would cut wood up to approx 4 inch wide...well I can tell you now...this bad boy got my 60 foot tree down to a 2 foot stump (which I will treat and use as a base for a garden statue!) Brilliant buy! Even if it had broken (due to eucalyptus abuse!) after just getting the first branch off, it would have been worth every penny. So impressed with this! Truly amazed. I love it and my trusted cheap saw is going to feel betrayed...I might have to paint it gold and tell him he's actually a trophy ( my goodness we conquered a lot together!) And, in the past 2 days, i seriously have said 'Why didn't I buy this sooner?' ...several times!!!!!

GardenSeeker adds: I can agree, it is a bit of a beast, it can handle alot bigger tree trunks than advertised.

Bought to reduce the height of a couple of trees in the garden (didn't want to use a chainsaw or pay a fortune to cowboys). Easy to set up and although not light, it is very well balanced and I found the thinnest blade glided through the branches that were too thick for my lopper. Well pleased with this purchase and it takes the hard work out of sawing (especially on stepladders!). Brilliant value for money and highly recommended for the purpose I bought it for!

Professional Hammer Drills are not the run of the mill tools, of course they will do all the day to day jobs, but they specialise in drilling holes in concrete, granites, bricks, tiles, and stone.

If you are looking to do some heavy duty work around the garden then these are the right tools.

Hammer drills do not just rotate at a higher rate, 900 to 1300 RPM (rotations per minute) against 650 RPM's for household cordless drills, they have a punch action, driving the drill bit into the concrete, like a hammer driving a nail into wood, hence, they are called Hammer Drills. The combination of hammering and drilling produces a hole much faster than a conventional drills.

The Hammer Drills have an added Chisel feature, they can strip tiles off walls or chisel grooves in walls. By fitting the chisel bit and turning on the hammer only feature, it will easily strip walls.

We are talking gardening jobs, not major construction, therefore I recommend the Highly Rated Bosch Professional Rotary Hammer Drill at £134.64. It may not be the best 'Contractors' Professional Hammer Drill, for Jobs around the Garden, it will do everything you require.

By far the best electric drill I've ever purchased. I've always bought dewalt tools, but when I looked at the spec of this electric Bosch drill with it's quick change chuck at a reasonable price, I just couldn't resist buying and trying it out. Well it didn't disappoint... drilled a hole in a 9" × 8" solid concrete lintel in seconds, hammer chiselled tiles off like a hot knife through butter ( which had been cemented on to a wall ). I was so happy with my purchase that I brought another to keep in my workshop as a spare.

The Cordless Hedge Trimmer sector is very competitive, the highest rated Trimmers are the Makita DUH523Z Cordless (4.8 / 5 from 3,631) and the Bosch Cordless Hedge Trimmer (4.7 / 5 from 1,137), what edges it for me is the price, the Makita - battery not included. Therefore the Bosch wins.

For a good hedge trimmer it has to be lightweight and it has to have a good balance. I would always go for the cordless, the cord gets in the way and your always pulling the cord, but you all know this.

The Bosch Cordless Hedge Trimmer is very competitive at £89.60.

More of a machine than expected - by , March 13, 2019
5 / 5stars

Battery operated? Will it be up to the job? Should I buy a cheaper mains operated one with more watts? Well, I took a gamble and went for it. Mostly due to not having to mess about with cables. I'm very impressed, in fact I'm amazed! It's an awesome bit of kit. To those people out there that say it jams, it doesn't jam, it stops cutting when the branch is too much. All you do is release the trigger and start again. It is after all a hedge trimmer, not a chainsaw. I have no reservations over this now, it did take a few moments to chop through the thicker branches of my Jasmine but it did do it and I had my doubts it would be capable. Read the instructions, read the reviews, and you won't go wrong. Anything this doesn't cut then you really need to think about an industrial hedge trimmer or a small chainsaw. I read so many questions about lubricating it and what to use. Firstly, do not use wd40, it's not a lubricant or oil. I was I wasn't sure about silicone or oil but 3-IN-ONE make a multi purpose oil with PTFE which is perfect. I actually treated myself to a can of STIHL Superclean which is expensive but specifically made for hedge trimmers. It's a resin solvent with lubricant. Definitely worth buying. I used the trimmer for about 30 mins but not constantly and afterwards the battery recharged in 10 mins

This is by far the best tool I have ever purchased in my life, it is my pride and joy, and no one else can use it...

(I have a 5 ton Logmaster)

I had a large tree go down a couple of years a go, I got the chainsaw out and logged it, admiring the pile of logs I realise they are too bulky for the log burning fire. There were alot of logs, so I thought, I will hire one for a week. I weighed up the prices and decided to buy one. So glad I did, it works far better and quicker than I expected, my large pile was soon reduced and transformed into a extra large usable log pile.

It was delivered within the week, 4 days I think, what I did not expect is how heavy it is... I got the wheel barrow, the driver said, no chance, he was right and between us we got it to the back of the house. How can something so small, weigh so much? Now I am reading up, they are 47 kgs, thats 7 Stone 4 in old money, a serious lump of metal. So pleased be advised, make sure when it gets delivered, there are two able bodied people to carry it, you may not get a helpful driver as I did. Now it was another challenge to get it out of the box, but once it was out, the weight problems ended. With the wheels on the back and a carry handle on the front, it is easier to manoeuvre it around.

I checked the Hydraulic fluid, plugged it in and off we go, so simple. I loaded up a log and the arm operation takes about 3 seconds, then I realised, if I put another log behind it only takes half a second to split the first log. My log fire is only 30 cm wide, so all my logs are ideal for this splitter. I have read some reviews that it wont handle 45 cm and above logs. I question, why would you want logs that wide?

Log Splitter Cracking a Log

I soon got the hang of it, brilliant little but heavy machine. Tip: It handles knotts as long as you keep the knott away from the axe end, get it wrong and the log compresses (instead of splitting) and under the 5t pressure and the log explodes, firing splinters out at dangerous speeds. I see on the latest models a guard is available, it may take you longer, loading and unloading, but it is safety in mind.

I am really happy with the speed and performance, so glad I bought one, it saves so much time and hard work, I can not advise you to go big as the 5 ton does the job fine, it is a hefty purchase but I think a bargain at £261.90.

Is good but - by , April 9, 2020
5 / 5stars

t is very strong but if you do a lot you be better of getting the bigger one as , even the 5 ton is good your logs cannot be longer then 30cm , this is not very long . for 50 pounds more you can have the 38cm one this would have been better for my needs . I even went to look at my logs before i bought it and even most of them are under it is really annoying when you are in full flow that there is some that you try to ram in , the worse ones are that are over with a few mm . Overall very good machine and really my own mistake not buying the bigger one . the only thing is it would have been good if it had a foot button as then you could have had one hand on the logs . it is probably for safety

This machine is well worth the money, quick and simple to use, the safety cage is a bit fiddley to put together but from experience is worth it as a log in the face is not very pleasant, I used it to split a mountain of tree butts of varying sizes and it made the job look easy, saving me hours of back breaking axe work. I was well impressed with the delivery, it arrived two days later. Two handed operation ensures you keep your hands out of the danger area, on the down side its a bit low to the ground, I put it on top of some tree butts to raise it up, otherwise EXCELLENT.

VonHaus 3000W Leaf Blower

The VonHaus 3000W Leaf Blower is ideal for keeping lawns, patios and driveways tidy. With a powerful motor, this highly efficient leaf blower allows you to effortlessly clear leaves and other debris from your garden in virtually no time at all.

3 in 1 Garden Tool - The leaf blower works in three stages, each action triggered by a simple move of the dial: The blower mode enables you to collect leaves together. The vacuum mode sucks them up into the collection bag. The mulcher then automatically condenses waste into material suitable for composting. Boasting a shredding ratio of 10:1, this not only saves space in the collection bag, it also saves you time making additional trips to the compost heap.

35L Collection Capacity - The spacious 35 litre capacity collection bag requires emptying less often than smaller bags – allowing you to work longer without interruption. The collection bag features an easy-pull zip to make disposing of its contents quick and easy. Plus, the 10m long power cable allows you to cover a wider area without restricting you to using the leaf blower close to a plug socket.

Ergonomically Designed - Compact and lightweight, the Leaf Blower has been designed with comfort in mind. Featuring wheels and a shoulder strap to reduce strain on your shoulders, arms and back, it allows you to work for prolonged periods without any signs of fatigue.

The thermal cut-out safety features automatically cuts the leaf blower’s power if it’s in danger of overheating.

Very simple assembly required with easy to follow instructions provided

Amazing product for an absolutely amazing price! - by , September 24, 2018
5 / 5stars
This product was delivered a day early. It arrived in a very plain box, but I did not buy packaging, I bought the product inside. So not bothered! I assembled it in 10 minutes flat, very easy to put together. Just had to have a screwdriver to screw 2 sections together. Strong but lightweight. When I first used it yesterday, what an amazing vacuum, blower and mulcher. Very powerful machine and yet so easy to operate! Blower works very well, suction on the vacuum incredibly good, works very well in my medium sized garden. Easy to use, light-weight and amazing value for money! Don't buy those expensive brand name products, buy this one! You won't be disappointed. Very happy with my purchase and highly recommend it!

Cheap as Chips and Just as Tasty! - by , September 19, 2018
5 / 5stars
Don't be disconcerted by the small package. Two screws (with a third already in the component) and it is easily and quickly (5 minutes with a power driver) assembled into a full size machine. Powerful enough for my small patio garden overlooked by a huge Ash and Elder. Seems fully adequate (and, yes, noisy). I failed to zip the bag up at first and ended up with shredded leaves all over the place! A quick blast of the blower function and it all disappeared into the borders - patio cleaner than its ever been - brilliant. Heavy wind from Storm Ali hit an hour ago, cleared the leaves with no clogging.

Strimmers are wonderful tools for reaching those parts of the garden where your lawn mower does not go. Perfect for edges around posts etc, long grassed areas where the mower might get choked and really tiding up the garden.

There are a few types, petrol, electric and battery operated, strimmers are either cord driven or blade driven. All have their own merits, mainly on price, it costs to have the freedom of being cordless, eventhough it will cost you double and more to go cordless, they are the best sellers. Here we have the cordless strimmer from Black and Decker, it is highly rated with a 4.6 out of 5, and it is mid-priced range at Only £149.00.

Overall, very happy with my first, foolproof, simple strimmer, good value for the price as well! - by , January 13, 2018
5 / 5stars

Bought this because our garden is of an awkward shape that has many areas that aren’t suitable for a lawnmower, unless you like constantly repairing it after running over rocks that is!

The Strimmer was well packaged and had very clear instructions with it, indeed, using this thing is nigh on foolproof! Simply stick the battery in the charge pack for an hour or so and you have 20 to 30 minutes worth of strimming charge instantly, the two ‘use’ buttons I guess are easy to pick up and there is a sliding option at the front for an economy power option and a full on power option, best utilised for heavy or fatter grass. The front cover of the strimming ‘wire’ I guess you can call it, can be turned to a different angle that is quite handy and you can also shorten or stretch the length of the neck, but to be honest, at my height (around 6 foot) it’s always at the max length.

Strimming is easy and a pleasure, it cuts through short and long grass easily and I’ve even used it on some pretty tough shrubs, though that significantly shortens the lifespan of the strimming wire and is not what this thing is designed for, so my bad! The maximum charge time of around 30 minutes might be short for some and very large gardens, but is more than enough for me, why not start combing up the grass you’ve cut in the meantime whilst waiting for it to recharge?

Problems? The aforementioned strimming wire is a bit on the flimsy side in my opinion, it can run out very quickly over tough grass and occasionally snap on accidentally hitting a tough patch or object, but I suppose that’s the nature of the wire and down to my heavy handed use more than anything, replacements are pretty cheap anyway. Overall, very happy with my first, foolproof, simple strimmer, good value for the price as well!

The best piece of gardening equipment I've ever purchased. I've had this for nearly 2 years. So reliable and powerful. Easy to maneuver. Battery can cut two good size gardens with ease. I keep it on eco mode which is plenty powerful. I've purchased spare strimmer reels which are very easy to replace. Highly recommended. No more cables,great!

Nice basic boxed set of common accessories. - by , December 02, 2016
5 / 5stars

Recently I've taken to destroying drill bits for some reason. I use the correct ones in the correct way but even so I've been getting breakages that sometimes have left half the bit in the workpiece (a "bee hotel", for example), so I've become a bit more concerned about finding ones that do the job for me without too much fuss. Bosch is a trusted brand for me; I use a lot of their tools these days, so these were bought to replace older non-branded bits that until now I never knew I was struggling with.

A bit like some screws will drive more easily into a workpiece, drill bits can be the same, and although it is hard to get specific about why these bits would be any better than any other, I find working with them is actually overall just a bit less hassle. I could try to theorise about why, but what's the point? They're just easier to use, and this basic set is fine for general DIY, covering most of the situations a typical house and garden will throw at you. It not only has screwdriver bits and drill bits (for masonry, wood and metals, 5 or 6 of each), but the more common socket spanner sizes too. My only gripe is the means of holding the bits in place by the use of small rubbery inserts through which the shanks of the bits are pushed - it could be easier, but I guess that Bosch thought that this approach would be more durable than small plastic clips that would become brittle with age.

What I would emphasise is that if possible you check the contents quite carefully (they're listed in the product description for the item). There are more comprehensive kits above this most basic one that may suit your needs better if you do a lot of work rather than the occasional fix-up of something. For the price, getting more of the commonly-used bits has seldom been easier. After all, it's the most used stuff that suffers the most! I'd never really twigged the idea that drill bits could just get old and less effective even when they still look superficially okay, and getting a new set really woke me up to that fact. I needed more screwdriver bits and drill bits so, for me, this was an obvious choice.
