Rated 4 out of 5Â by Zebz Powerful hedge trimmer
Ok, only used it once so far, but really impressed with what it is able to cut through ... The sawing action seems to work well and made short work of a box hedge that got really out of control (had reached about 2m wide and I halved it basically in one go!).
Not anywhere near as impressed with Screwfix, simply because I don't expect to buy a relatively expensive product and be given something that looks second hand with a really tatty box only being held together with tape.

I bought this trimmer to replace one that had died. Owing to bad weather I have only been able to cut 10 mtr (both sides) of my total of about 40 mtr 6 ft tall hedge. It was like cutting butter with a hot knife, brilliant!
My hedge is a mature beech (40 or 50 years old) and it cut through 3/4inch branches effortlessly. Took about half the time that it previously took.
Unfortunately, the only drawback, I still have to pick up the cuttings!!!
Unable to comment on reliability as I've only had it a few days.

The Bosch AHS 70 - 34 and the AHS 65 - 34 are the 2 no top hedgetrimmers recommended by the consumer magazine WHICH ?, combined with the comments of previous reviewers, convinced me to buy the AHS 65-34.
I have mature Beech, Hawthorn and Conifer hedges with a total length of 160m and I have just cut the 60m of 3m high Conifer.
You have to use this machine to believe that the previous reviewers were not exaggerating and unlike other hedgetrimmers, you can buy a spare/replacement blade.

I have 60 meters of farmerâs adjacent hawthorn hedge to trim 3 to 4 times every summer. Previously I have used a combination of long handle shears, secateurs, underrated battery trimmers and pruning poles. This took almost a day of blood, sweat and toil. Having hit 65 I decided to spend a bit more than usual and acquired this Bosch AHS 65-34 65cm 700W Electric Hedge Trimmer 240V.
Wow! It is great. ! One dayâs job done in one hour. Remarkably light, little or no vibration and well balanced. Tackles thick branches like a âa hot knife through butterâ. Handy side grips for sideward cutting. I never felt fatigued during usage.
I cannot recommend this Bosch produce enough. Should come with a government health warning for hawthorn hedges.
