Stars: Price: pounds 9.98 Available: B&Q Bosch ART23Li Cordless Grass Trimmer Although it's not superheavy,I found this one a little more difficult to manouevre than some of the others.That said,it's still cordless,so you don't have to worry about getting tangled up.It's strong,like the Black & Decker,and easily dealt with stubborn woody weeds as effectively as it did with the lawn.I just think it's a tad pricy and doesn't have any extra features above the trimmers that come in about 20 quid cheaper.
