With its 540mm long blade, 20mm teeth spacing and sawing function which enables cutting of branches up to 25mm in diameter, the Bosch AHS 54-20 Li cordless hedge cutter is ideal for cutting medium-to-large hedges. The fast-charging Li-ion battery gives freedom from snaking electric cables, enabling you to use your hedge trimmer anywhere in the garden.
The low weight, soft-grip handles and ergonomic design allow balanced, safe and comfortable working, with less strain on your arms, back and shoulders, while the laser cut, diamond-ground blades give a precise and clean cut.
Mobility and Power
The Bosch AHS 54-20 Li hedge cutter comes with a powerful 36V 1.3 Ah lithium-ion battery which can be fully charged in just 45 minutes (and 80% charged in only 25 minutes). Depending on the thickness of the branches you are trimming, the manufacturer claims that the battery will give a running time of up to 50 minutes – long enough for most jobs. But the quick charging means that you can still complete the bigger jobs in one day – no waiting overnight for the battery to charge.
As with other Li-ion batteries, this will retain its charge in storage, meaning that it is ready and available to use at any time.
As with all of Bosch’s lithium-ion hedge trimmers, the Bosch AHS 54-20 Li hedge cutter comes with an ‘Anti-Blocking System’, which allows continuous cutting of even thicker branches. If the electronics in the hedge trimmer detect difficulty in cutting through a branch, they will immediately adjust the running direction of the blades to enable the tough branch to be cut.
The Bosch AHS 54-20 Li features a sawing function at the tip of the blade, enabling branches up to 25mm in diameter to be cut.
