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 mains powered strimmer. I have a Black and Decker one that is 15 years old and still going strong. The Bosch Art 26 will be junked. I further understand that Bosch had problems with all their power tools that used the 14.4 V, 1.5 Ah NiCD battery that is used with this strimmer. This experience has put me well and truly off buying another Bosch product.
