What a pile of old grass cuttings! This thing masquerading as a strimmer should be confined to the compost heap. The Bosch R and D team should be shot. How the hell did they allow their otherwise good name on this machine. When desigining a product, it has to be a least as good as the stuff already out there or offer a significant advantage....by for instance being cordless. But The ART26 makes being cordless, a DISadvantage. BATTERY.....takes ages to charge, poor power, quickly drains, expensive to replace
Then..... when you've got a fully charged machine, you are forever replacing the silly expensive plastic blades, that seem to fly off whenever you get near anything other than grass.
Okay it's got some nice little wheels, is easy to handle, quite managable, and has safety design features.....but then so has my granny's shopping trolley.
If you've got a postage-stamp garden, like shopping for plastic blades, and waiting for batteries to charge...this machine is your ideal choice. Otherwise google your requirements and find a proper strimmer.
