Bosch Hedge Trimmer

 

Optional Extras

We can recommend a variety of extras to buy with your hedge trimmer to make you hedge cutting a more efficient and safer experience.

 

Safety plugs

If you are buying a wired hedge trimmer please buy a safety plug to go with them.

 

What do safety plugs do?

They can quite literally save your life! If you accidentally cut through the cable while hedge cutting them you could have a very nasty accident. Safetly plugs work by sensing a change in the current and automatically trip the power off before any harm comes to you.

 

Do they work well?

A definite yes! I can speak from personal experience having cut through two hedge trimmer cables in my time...not surprisingly I only use a battery powered hedge trimmer now!

When I did cut through the cable there were absolutely no ill effects, no bang, no sparks, just an embarrassed "whoops" from me and a sheepish explaination to the missus.

 

Are they expensive?

Not at all, they cost just a few pounds and can be used for all manner of electrical devices with trailing cables from hoovers to lawn mowers.

We have included a small selection of the better models for you below.
