A. No, the parts are click and connect so it will only take you less than a few minutes to assemble.

Pros for the Bosch 23cm 280W Corded Grass Trimmer:
- If you are looking for a bargain for the cheapest possible price, then you don’t need to look much further than this as the price when last seen at the time of this review was for less than £35 which compares very well against other lower priced brands in the market.
- If there are any problems, you have the 2-year warranty which protects your investment so you are fully protected in the event that you need to return it. You can also get a replacement care package from Argos for less than £10 also which is optional and it can run for 3 years.
- As the weight of this trimmer is less than 2kg, it allows you to work the tool for even longer before fatigue in your arms starts to set in.
- It includes an adjustable auxiliary handle for working the trimming at various different height levels, it is nicely balanced and the tool is more or less ready to work straight from the box as assembly takes no time at all.
- The line spool feed is automatic and works as expected so no issues were experienced in this regard – overall the auto line feed worked without any problems on our end.
- The size is quite small when compared to larger trimmers so it can hang up in the garage or be stored in the shed without taking up too much space – very compact size overall
Cons for the Bosch 23cm 280W Corded Grass Trimmer:
- There is no rotating head on this grass trimmer model so you are limited when it comes to trimming harder to reach areas in your garden.
- Doesn’t have the capability to deal with brambles or dense thicker coarse patches as the power level is too low. You need a 400W+ model instead for this type of trimming.
- The cord provided for this model is only 6m long which is one of the shortest we have seen so you need to factor in the additional costs of extension cords as well if you choose to buy.
- While not experienced by us, we have seen reports from other users that in some cases the line would break quite easily and get tangled around the rotating shaft which can be annoying.
- Overall, this is one of the most lightweight and basic grass trimmers you will comes across which can only deal with lighter type work on fine grasses but thankfully is matched with the appropriate lower price tag.

Part 4: Our Conclusion Plus Optional Feedback
Do we recommend the Bosch 23cm Corded Grass Trimmer? Yes, but only for very basic lighter duty work and it is not powerful enough to handle tough, thicker grass patches and it certainly is not able to deal with brambles. The size is very small so it can be stored more easily in smaller type storage spaces and the weight of less than 2kg makes it that bit easier to work with for longer. The cord is very short, but the auto feed line works satisfactorily and you also need to be careful not to be continually powering it on and off all the time to avoid too much line being used. It is certainly not the best grass trimmer out there but if you need a small tool to do smaller lighter trimming work only, then this trimmer will do the job for you. It can be assembled in a matter of a few minutes, it is comfortable to handle and grip and it is easy to clean also while taking up minimal storage space in your garage or shed.
Would we buy it? Probably not to be honest as we would prefer to go for a higher quality and more powerful spec grass trimmer instead as we have seen too many issues around the trimming line breakages and line feed issues. Our favourite trimmer in this range would have to be the Bosch ART24 24cm 400W Corded Grass Trimmer above as it is only slightly more expensive and we felt it offered so much more and of course it has the longer 10m cable cord and adjustable secondary handle. The ART24cm model also performs much better on heavier grasses, thicker coarse grass and weeds with the increased power of 400W.
Have you ever used a Bosch Corded or Cordless Grass Trimmer yourself in the recent past? Did it work as expected or did you come across any problems that we need to be aware of? Plus, was this review useful to you in any way?
