Bosch AHS 45-16 A1

If you've got a hedge that's looking a bit unruly, now might be a good time to buy a new hedge trimmer. Read on to find out where you can buy the Bosch AHS 45-16 for less than £40.

The Bosch AHS 45-16 hedge trimmer

If you're looking for something that's not too heavy, this could be the perfect choice for you. Weighing just 2.7kg, this hedge trimmer is very light compared to a lot of the others on the market. It's got a 45cm blade, which makes it a good choice for a smaller hedge, and a powerful 420W motor.

We tested 15 electric hedge trimmers this year, including this one, and judged them on their performance, as well as how easy they were to use. You can find out how well the Bosch AHS 45-16 did in our online hedge trimmer review, and compare others on test.

Where to buy

This is a popular model and it's available in most of the big retailers for about £50. But you can currently buy it for just £39.99 at Argos and Homebase. 

Which? hedge trimmer testing and Best Buys

We test hedge trimmers every year to bring you our Best Buys and Don't Buys. We test cutting ability, speediness, comfort, ease of use and safety.

This year we tested some of the most popular corded electric models to see how they really shape up. If your hedge is reasonably close to the house, a corded hedge trimmer should do the job quickly and efficiently, especially if you pick one of our Best Buys.
