Bosch’s well-established reputation for creating high-quality cordless power tools – most famously embodied in the “Blue” range of tools for trade and industry – has now been extended to the horticultural world. Of particular note among these new additions is the GFR 25 Professional, a hardworking battery-powered brushcutter which provides the same commercial-grade cutting performance as a conventional brushcutter but without the noise, excessive vibrations and fumes of running a petrol machine.
This is possible thanks to Bosch’s unique EC brushless motor system and 36V/6.0Ah lithium-ion batteries, which combine to provide an unprecedented level of clean, quiet cutting power. The EC brushless motors, for instance, feature fewer moving parts to increase efficiency and reduce service requirements, so the GFR 25 Professional is easier to maintain and more reliable than almost any other brushcutter on the market today.
The batteries, meanwhile, offer up to ninety minutes run time on a single charge and can be fully charged in only 42 minutes. With a spare battery charging while you work, then, the GFR 25 Professional guarantees uninterrupted cutting throughout the working day, while a battery lifetime of up to 1,000 charges with no loss of power makes this hi-tech brushcutter suited to frequent intensive landscape maintenance work. The time and money saved by eliminating the need to stop and refuel while you work further means that the GFR 25 Professional offers significant advantages over its service life, especially if used for extended periods on a daily basis. An integrated LCD display on the batteries, moreover, makes it easy to plan your working day.
The advantages that battery power offers over using a conventional petrol brushcutter are manifold. The absence of particle emissions means that you will be free to work without choking on toxic exhaust fumes. The GFR 25 Professional can also boast remarkably low vibration levels of less than 1.8m/s, which practically eliminates the risk of hand-arm vibration syndrome. Most impressive of all is that the GFR 25 Professional operates at a noise level of only 79dB(A), which is roughly equivalent to a domestic vacuum cleaner and significantly quieter than any petrol brushcutter. The GFR 25 Professional is therefore the perfect tool for clearing scrub and dense undergrowth from noise-sensitive areas, such as school playing fields or hospital grounds.
Cutting is handled via the two-tooth metal brushcutter blade supplied as standard with the GFR 25 Professional, enabling quick clearance of even the toughest vegetation. Should you need to clear larger open areas of long grass, however, the GFR 25 is also compatible with a dual nylon line trimmer head (available separately) which can be quickly fitted in place of the standard blade fixture. The GFR 25 Professional will therefore allow you to tackle the vast majority of routine cutting work with ease, especially since you won’t be distracted by the fiddly servicing requirements of running a petrol machine.
To further ensure comfort and precision while you work the GFR 25 Professional features dual bike-style handles, with all controls easily accessible on one side, while every machine is also supplied with a fully adjustable harness. These combine with a lightweight build of only 6.5kg for complete manoeuvrability and guaranteed accurate cutting, making even challenging jobs reassuringly straightforward.
To top everything off the GFR 25 Professional is covered by Bosch’s three year professional warranty – with a two year premium service available for the batteries – so you can rest assured of a long and reliable service life. In every imaginable way, then, Bosch’s GFR 25 Professional represents the future of landscape maintenance, so the sooner you replace your old-fashioned petrol tools the easier you’ll find it to stay one step ahead of the competition.
