The mains electric powered Bosch ART 23 model is lightweight at only 1.7 kg, but the 240volt motor ensures more than enough power for most lawn trimming purposes, at 280w the motor takes just over 1 amp current. Supplied with nylon line cord cutter, it is fast and capable. Its cutting diameter is 23cm. Certainly its best feature is its very light weight making it very comfortable to use even for extended periods of time. The handle is comfortable and at 1 metre, the longest of the corded type tested, which helps when using it, the shorter ones tended to make you stoop, not good for the back if using it for more than ten minutes.

To let out more nylon cutting line, simply bump the ground ! The automatic bosch spool will dispense the right amount

Reviews from purchasers were split, some found it perfectly usable, others said the design of the line reel was poor. Having used a few of the mains corded type strimmers, I will agree, the reels can be very tricky in operation, usually letting out too much , which breaks as soon as you restart cutting. I don’t think the Bosch model is any better or worse in this respect, than any of the others.

this is a great little strimmer – not powerful enough for tackling overgrown bush and stringy weeds, but fine for trimming the grass on edgings and paths

The Bosch ART Easytrim Electric Trimmer has proved a very useful addition to the garden tools. Makes light work of the job

auto line extrude not brilliant , so tend to extract next line manually , also LINE TENDS TO BREAK OFF at reel exit which needs dismantle to get more line out

In practice many users were not using the correct Bosch line, which affects the performance of the unit
