Product Details

Bosch GFR 42 Professional Brush Cutter Set Six

The Bosch GFR 42 Professional Brush Cutter Set Six comes with 1 x 36 Volt 6.0 Ah lithium-ion battery and 1 x  AL36100CV fast charger. Upon registering this product with Bosch, you will receive 1 free 36V battery, worth £385.00!!

The Bosch GFR 42 Professional Brush Cutter offers the professional user astonishing results thanks to its high-tech 36V/6.0Ah lithium-ion battery and Bosch's up to date technology in the form of the unique brushless motor system. Not only is this more efficient on power, it offers the user a quieter, greener working experience. The innovative brushless motor system has fewer moving parts compared to its petrol equivalent, thus reducing servicing needs and costs. Efficiency is given a well needed boost as well, and you will notice improved performance each and every time you use your Bosch GFR 42 Brush cutter.

Bosch's cutting edge technology stretches to the battery, which offers you up to 60 minutes of run time on a single charge, and a full re-charge takes just 42 minutes. If you have more than one battery it is easy to achieve completely uninterrupted use, (one battery in use, one charging) essential for the professional user where time is always at a premium! This battery has been some time in the making, so it is no surprise however to find features such as a built in LCD screen which will show you when you are running out of charge. You can expect an average of 1000 charges thanks to the 'CoolPack' aluminium cooling feature built in to extend the life of the battery. The batteries have been weatherproofed, which means they are suitable for use come rain or shine - no excuses now!

The Bosch GFR 42 is perfect in conditions where noise can be considered a nuisance such as public areas, school playgrounds and urban environments. It is quieter, lighter and more eco friendly than its petrol counterpart. Arm-hand vibration syndrome will pretty much become a thing of the past thanks to its reduced vibration (less than 0.8m/s).

Easily cut swathes of up to 42 cm (16.5") through the long grass and weeds, even in those harder to access areas, thanks to the professional quality of the semi-automatic dual nylon line trimmer head. In larger spaces the bike-handle style with easily located controls means you can achieve the perfect scything motion. The low weight of 6.5 kg and the inclusion of a fully adjustable harness with every machine together really do take the hard work out of brush cutting. Bosch understand the pressure of time and efficiency  for the professional user, so the design of the trimmer head's quick to load mechanism and semi-automatic 'Bump & Go' style line advancement are paramount to this.

The GFR 42 Professional is covered by Bosch's 3 year manufacturer's warranty and a 2 year premium service for the batteries. Designed with the hard working professional gardener or landscaper in mind, Bosch have really hit the mark with this latest design.
