Smallish battery, but a great price for a cordless blower. Lowest price recorded by camelcamel.

I have one and it works fine in my small garden. If you have other Bosch equipment with a bigger battery, then that can be used to power this for longer.

Blurb:
  • 18 V 2.0 Ah lithium-ion battery technology - no memory effect, no self-discharge, always ready to use
  • Up to 14 minutes run time per charge
  • 210 km/h blow speed to easily seep away leaves
  • Removable blower tube provides compact storage
  • Extremely lightweight - no strain on arms whilst working

Why would you buy this when you could get a Gtech one for £289?

This is 6 times cheaper...
Excellent device - reliable and good battery - had mine 2 years, but gave it away last week as the power is relatively low and it wasn’t powerful enough

The guy in the picture is blowing half a tonne from his mansion driveway.
Are you insinuating that the Bosch marketing department might be slightly exaggerating the perceived power output. Scandalous!
unfortunately I usually spend 15 minutes leaf blowing
Cold when compared to the 24v Greenworks blower + line trimmer for £32.49. hotukdeals.com/dea…879 If only you had a tardis.

But you cannot really compare can you? I have Bosch cordless equipment throughout - strimmer, blower, lawnmower, drill etc. The batteries are interchangeable and I only need one charger on show. If I bought the Greenworks you listed, I would have to have another charger cluttering my house. And when the battery runs out mid way through what I am doing, I am stuffed. That is why I bought this as it fits into my group of devices and I never run out of battery power.

Posting a different device (and a deal that has expired) and calling it cold isn't how this site is supposed to work. It is based on what the best price for a particular item is at that point in time. For me, this was a great buy as I would have had to pay £20 just for the battery alone.

Of course i can compare. That's exactly what you have just done. Also, you are incorrect in your proposition of how this site is supposed to work (it works differently for different people). I don't vote on what a good deal you got for yourself, i vote on how good a deal it would be for others. The Greenworks offer has been on for both of the weekends just gone so it's worth keeping an eye on.

Ok then. I would be eternally grateful if you could find me a cordless Bosch blower of the same rating at a a cheaper price then please? Then you would have helped the community. Rather than post an expired deal, which serves no useful purpose. Waiting for your Bosch link in anticipation, so that I can return my cold blower to Amazon.

The Greenworks offer was a better deal for most people and a higher rating too. I acknowledge that it is currently expired but, as i pointed out, it has been on offer for the two weekends just past. It may be better for anyone in the market for a blower to wait a few days and possibly get a higher powered blower plus a strimmer for less than your Bosch. I never stated that you hadn't posted the best current price for your particular model. But it wasn't as good a deal as the Greenworks one had been. Hence, 'cold when compared to .....' The -25 cold rating the community has awarded your post would indicate that the majority agree. Don't take the voting to heart fella, i've had deals voted frozen solid in comparison. If you are happy with your purchase, i'm pleased for you.

I have no issue with the cold votes tbh. Not my loss really. But it irks me when folk come onto deals and state "cold" without suggesting a valid cheaper link. That isnt specifically you per se, but just a trait I find irritating when someone has put the effort into posting something. More so, when the so called "cold" poster has never posted a single useful deal in the so many years they have been a member. Again, that excludes you as you clearly are an avid poster.
