Bosch Keo Cordless Garden Saw : Not as good as expected from the description

Not as good as expected from the description. Not as useful as i had hoped. It takes 3-4 hours to charge fully, and then runs for only about 30 mins. It can certainly make short work of light to moderate pruning, but the description of cutting up to 10cm boughs is rubbish. It struggles with branches smaller than this. Also, how much can you get through in about 30mins?. It feels like i am just getting started, when it starts to falter because it needs to recharge. Also, it doesn’t hold it’s charge, even if not in use. So if you think you can charge it up one day, and then use it a couple of days later. All in all, it can help with short spells of moderate pruning. It can’t do a good days work in the garden though.

I was given amazon vouchers, i used them to buy this item which has proved to be very useful. However it would be much improved if the battery was removeable and a second battery provided.

This is a brilliant tool very light i have problems gripping and holding. This is a brilliant tool very light i have problems gripping and holding things but this is very good my trees have now all had a trim for the first time in 5 years.

Looks as if the saw will be a very useful item for light pruning. It looks as if the saw will be a very useful item for light pruning. So far it has lived up to expectations.

When you are up the top of a ladder ( and you are starting to get on a bit ) tools get very heavy very quickly. This is such a change from heavy chainsaws or working hard with a saw. I used this at the top of a ladder and cut through branches up to 4 inches. Light and easy to use , battery life around 15 – 20 mins of heavy use. So far very pleased with it. After 16 months the battery seemed to suddenly lose 99% of its charge. As the product comes with 24 month warranty as standard i phoned the number on the bosch tools site and in under 14 days i had a brand new saw. The bosch call centre was friendly and helpful , all i had to do was box it up and print out my amazon order email.
