“DO NOT BUY. I have had on of these for 2 years. In...”

Written on: 14/05/2010 by 13CNMR (1 review written)

DO NOT BUY. I have had on of these for 2 years. In year 1 it gave reasonable service, battery life was not bad, but the plastic blades wear very quickl, even when just used to trim grass on a lawn. During the second year, I found that the battery was not holding charge as well as the first season. Now at just 2 years old the battery is shot. Do not be tempted to believe the hype on the packaging. The Bosch Art26 Easytrim is a pile of rubbish. You should invest your money in a line feed… Read Full Review

“The ART 26 EASYTRIM DOES NOT DESERVE THE NAME BOSH ”

Written on: 27/04/2010

The ART 26 EASYTRIM DOES NOT DESERVE THE NAME BOSH
It is a pile of rubbish
We have had ours for about two years and have spent more time changing the blades which break so easily and we find VERY DIFFICULT to replace because we are disabled and have to force the on and off
The only thing that is good about it is the Cordless operation which gives it a good safety point
We have found the battery lasts long enough to strim our small lawn
VERY DISAPPOINTED WITH A PRODUCT WITH SUCH A GOOD BRAND… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/04/2010

Bosch ART 26 LI, seems to be a good strimmer, does not cut through shrubs, but then again it wasn't designed for that. Main reason for the low rating, is the very short battery life which is, even with quite thin grass only about half an hour. Been looking for a spare battery, but they're in the £60 + region almost as much as the strimmer was itself. Wouldn't recommend it for those reasons… Read Full Review

“Rubbish! I bought Bosch ART26 ACCUTRIM Cordless...”

Written on: 27/07/2009

Rubbish! I bought Bosch ART26 ACCUTRIM Cordless Battery Strimmer for £97 one from B & Q, after having been told by the sales person it took 50 mins to charge the battery, to find that each charge (not just the first charge) takes 3-4 hours. The strimmer did not strim anywhere near the 1000metres advertised on the box either. I washed it down, took it back to B & Q the next day and argued that it was not the product as descirbed and got a refund. Am getting a black and decker… Read Full Review

“This Bosch ART26 ACCUTRIM Cordless Battery strimmer...”

Written on: 29/06/2009 by Saunders174 (6 reviews written)

This Bosch ART26 ACCUTRIM Cordless Battery strimmer has been extremely disappointing. When you use it around the end of the lawn and touch anything other than grass, the plastic blade flies off. These blades wear at an amazinging rate and it is necessary to carry a pocketful when using the device. The battery will last for one short session of use before giving up.
Not a strimmer you would ever recommend

Written on: 06/05/2009

Bosch ART25 Battery Strimmer is easy to handle with djustable shaft length and rotatable head. But would expect better research into battery reliability from Bosch. Concur with other comments that the battery lasts less than twelve months and the replacement cost is grossly overpriced. Replacement cutting blades at over twenty pence each are also overpriced… Read Full Review

“The Bosch ART26 ACCUTRIM Cordless Battery Strimmer is...”

Written on: 04/05/2009 by Zakky (1 review written)

The Bosch ART26 ACCUTRIM Cordless Battery Strimmer is a brilliant strimmer. Much more effective than the string trimmers and 10 times better than the terrible Homelite petrol trimmer it was bough to replace. The Lithium Ion battery on the new version lasts forever but IT IS NOT A BRUSH CUTTER! Some people seem to think that all strimmers should be able to cut through dense brush and brambles. They are for cutting grass and light weeds and, for this task the Art26Li is an excellent choice… Read Full Review

Written on: 22/04/2009

Bosch ART26 ACCUTRIM Cordless Battery Strimmer - is useless - the blades break very quickly and each strimming of the garden can cost me up to £1.50 in blades alone! Battery has died after about one year - and judging by the comments on this site I will not be buying another one, nor buying another Bosch strimmer!… Read Full Review

“This strimmer uses Ni-Cad battery technology which is...”

Written on: 25/05/2008

This strimmer uses Ni-Cad battery technology which is prone to "memory" effect if it is not fully charged & then discharged regularly. My battery died in the first year & the replacement battery is £50. Previously I had a FLYMO cordless strimmer & this lasted for years!

Interestingly if you check the Bosch web site they have just re-launched this product including a Lithium ion power pack. Li-ion batteries are far superior to Ni-Cads as they last longer & do not suffer from the memory… Read Full Review
