Terrible
"Not fit for purpose - line would not auto feed and snapped at every attempt. Took it back to exchange for a Flymo - the staff at Bridlington Branch were very helpful."

Does the job
"Pros: easy to put together, does the job you want, long lead, light and easy to manoeuvre
Cons: struggles to get in some smaller spaces or behind tree branches, used twice and line spool already run out"

rubbish
"I bought this as the price was good for a well known name. Its been awful to use, the worst strimmer I've had over many years gardening. does poor job, not comfortable , tapping doesn't usually release more line, very hard to get spool cover off to replace line and NOW IT WONT COME OFF AT ALL!!!! just look at all the terrible reviews on Review Centre."

Just what it say's...
"Lightweight, simple and easy to use. Good value for money.
Only negative it is a little difficult taking out the spool to replace new line.

The Bosch Strimmer
"Without doubt a awful product. I am changing it for a Flymo. Spool impossible to remove, cord keeps breaking. A nightmare"

Be useful if the line feed worked.....
"I've had this for some time now and only just realised I hadn't reviewed it.
It would be a great little strimmer but the line feed doesn't work and the line keeps breaking.
You waste more time sorting this out than actually cutting grass or weeds with it.
The original line has just run out so I'm shopping around for a replacement - that might work better - but as supplied it's about not much better than useless."

Worst strimmer ever
"This has to be the worst strimmer I have ever had the misfortune to buy. A complete waste of money.
You have to continually go over the same edge of grass to get a decent finish. The self feed piece at the bottom gouges into the turf. Far from being an easy trim, I found it to be an arm aching nightmare.

Poor, clumsy and badly designed
"Always start with a positive - it's Bosch. Negatives - quality control were taking a nap when they let this one out. Poor feed, horrible spool, heavy/clumsy feel to it. Then - when you finally get to put it away - there is nowhere to stow the lead - so it ends up all over the shed floor as it falls of it's "hook" - hopeless..."

Good basic grass trimmer
"This is fairly cheap, quick and generally easy to use.
I find the cord is not really long enough and have to use an extension lead. Have also had to remove the spool when the bump mechanism fails to work properly.

Bosch Trimmer ART 26
"Used for about 1 year. Devours cord very quickly and cord feed needs a walk from lawn to a hard surface to 'bump' trimmer. This always needs several attempts and often has to be manually pulled out. Machine quite heavy for doing this. Generally difficult to use and I'm looking for another make."

Not to be recommended
"Returned to B&Q after 3 days. The line was continually feeding and then broke off inside the spool. The spool cover was impossible to remove (even for the B& Q staff). B&Q staff accepted that this was a common fault."
