Syzygy's review of Bosch AHS 7000 Pro T Electric Hedge Cutter

★☆☆☆☆
Bosch AHS 7000 Pro T Electric Hedge Cutter

“If the Bosch AHS 7000 PRO T Electric Hedgecutter jams...”

Written on: 30/09/2006 by Syzygy (1 review written)

Good Points
Powerful motor, nice long blade and deals with thick wood, eg holly, really well.

Bad Points
Quite heavy to hold out in front of you. Interconnected switching means it's difficult to hold out stretched in front of you. Appreciate the safety reasons, but there are better designs - like a switch at the back of the handle, on other machines.

General Comments
If the Bosch AHS 7000 PRO T Electric Hedgecutter jams on an extra thick piece of wood, the two cams that oscillate the blade get prised apart, resulting in distorted con rods that follow the cams, with a horrible knocking noise and lots of vibration. Your only option is a new clutch and con rods - about £90. When I had mine repaired, the repairer said it's common on that model. Next time, it's going in the bin.

Thanks for your review. Having suffered two purchasing disasters with other makes of hedge trimmer I was looking at this particular model, thinking that it would actually work properly.

<br/>I won't bother wasting my money on this, so thanks again for saving me a lot of trouble.

<br/>Having read the various hedge trimmer reviews, in addition to my own experiences, it appears to be impossible to buy a hedge trimmer that is fit for purpose these days.
