EAN: 3165140437653 Was looking for a cheap cordless trimmer to match the deal I missed last week, (the ART 23 for £25 on Amazon) This looks a very similar model.

The ART 26 which comes up on Amazon is different to the one in the photo at B&Q, it's not the same item. I would include photos but can't sort the links out. You can use the EAN in the search box though.

It says * Cutting system: Plastic blades. Still sounds like the 23 to me

I had reserved two both at different stores which showed in stock at the time of ordering, only to be called the following day from both branches that it was not in stock.
PLEASE beware when you order and reserve at store from B&Q any offer item, chances are it will not be availible. This is not the first time this has happened to me.
B&Q internal systems are ancient, for a company this size surely they can get the basics right?
This leads to customer dissatisfation, I for one will no longer be using B&Q to reserve online for store collection, a WASTE OF TIME.

Some mainly good reviews for the smaller version ART 23 Easytrim Accu http://www.amazon.co.uk/product-reviews/B000Y1FA46/ref=cm_cr_pr_link_1?ie=UTF8&showViewpoints=0&sortBy=bySubmissionDateDescending

I finally got one the other day, it's very easy to use the blades just click on and battery lasts for ages after a 3-4 hour charge.
Only thing I will say is check the box as there were parts missing and I had to make several journeys to B&Q to sort it out.
Got gift voucher for my troubles from customer services though (_;)

My mum bought a cordless one similar to this, be careful when charging the battery. If you forget it's on charge it'll burn out the charger. There's no safety cut off on the charger so the whole lot had to be returned for a replacement, wouldn't just replace the charger -what a waste!

Oh no! Not one with plastic blades. Be prepared to live in Homebase (only place I can find blades) as blades last as long as an ice cream on a red hot day!

Thank you. I've not thought of looking on Ebay for blades. I tend to run out as I'm doing the grass and need them there and then.

nope try again

I surrender!

Am I looking at post No 3 or 6? Is it or is it not a bladed strimmer?

I love happy endings!

Not so good on specs as well...had to dig through bosch website and found the product info page and a comparison which tells it all...least amount or no features like height adjustments and no swivel which is kind of standard on all other models.....take look at the link below...it will take you to the product page and just below the product image there's a link for comparison..
