Exactly what I needed, thanks!
I have the cordless version(~$230). It came with a 1.5 Ah battery which allows for 15min run-time(annoying as hell). If I had my time again I'd go for the $23 corded.
You have the battery and charger, so now you can by skins of products like a Bosch drill or blower.
I have to say that the cordless version just doesn't have the power to cut through much… but its good for small jobs.
I have a 4 stroke brush cutter for the heavy stuff.. A 6Ah battery to replace the 1.5Ah would be ideal but my 10yr old Bosch ART 26-li isn't compatible with the newer power for all system.
new invention called the extension lead
I don't think that's what s/he meant. I think it's about the 23cm string length. And it's only 280w.
I almost jumped on it. But now I'm thinking it's useless, and even at this price will be a regret.
Someone more informed might be able to comment
The have the Bosch Line Trimmer ART 30 (550 Watt, 30 cm Cutting Diameter) for $80
@knackers: very tempting…
All corded line trimmers are designed with short inbuilt power leads on purpose as they are meant to be used with an extension lead.
Also, I don't understand exactly how it's 'useless', it plugs in and cuts grass, therefore it most be of use to at least some people.
On the face of it, I know where you’re coming from, with most household appliances like a vacuum cleaner mostly they have a long cord and an extension cord isn’t needed, but this design is actually quite clever because it means that you have to use an extension cord, which protects the appliance in this instance, as if it gets hit by the blade of the line and the cord is broken it is much cheaper and easier to replace than re-wiring the line trimmer itself.
I really need to trim my lines if you know what I mean
Did somebody say trim lines 😉
Price is up after added to cart before checkout, sucks….
Showing as $37.49 for me
pftt… price has been "jack-ed"!
it's $37.49 now
OP should change the title or mark it expired.
Showing 27.83 for me. Still OK price as compared to 37 as others suggested.
Edit - Got one. Thanks op.
Came up as $27.78 for me. Worth the extra fiver I think, thanks for the post op.
The line spool has only 4m of lines. Here is a link for the extra line you'll need very soon.
There is one available on ebay for the same price and another for a couple dollars more so you don't have to spend the min $49 at Amazon for free shipping.
You don't need to meet the min $49 spend for this. Min $49 is typically for international items
It says free shipping on orders over $49 for me. Basically everytime I have ordered on Amazon Australia this has been the case. Please share how you are getting free shipping on this without prime
Whoops, sorry! I have prime & forgot about the min spend
Thanks OP. Just purchased one. Price did not alter however I do have Prime.
Not sure how long it'll last but it's back to $22.90
