How much do Bosch grass trimmers cost?
Most Bosch grass trimmers are mostly reasonably priced. The cheapest model, the Art 23 SL, costs around £25, while the Art 35, which is designed for cutting long grass, is around £90. Cordless models are more expensive, with the lowest-cost models being around £60, going up to around £290 for a 36v grass trimmer with the battery and charger.
Choosing the best Bosch grass trimmer
There are a number of electric grass trimmers from Bosch. The current basic grass trimmers are the SL range, which don't have a rotating head or an adjustable shaft. The Art 27 and Art 30 have 450W and 550W motors respectively and a rotating head. You might also still be able to find the old Combitrim models for sale.
Finally, there are two grass trimmers with a longer, fixed shaft, designed as heavy-duty grass trimmers to cut down long grass and weeds around the garden. We have reviewed the Art 35 and the AFS 23-37, which has a 950W motor and a brushcutter metal blade.
We have reviewed the Bosch cordless grass trimmers. The ART 23-18 Li and the ART 26-18 Li both have 18v batteries. The EasyGrassCut 12-230 has a 12V battery and cuts with a blade rather than grass trimmer line.
