Bosch UNIVERSALCHAINPOLE P4A 18v Cordless Telescopic Pole Tree Pruner 200mm
Battery AH Explained
The best way to describe battery amp hour is that this is effectively the size of your fuel tank, the more amp hours your battery has then the longer the battery will last between charges. More amp hours does not increase the power of a given tool.
Battery Voltage Explained
A tool with a higher voltage than another is a bit like choosing an engine in a car, the higher voltage will generally mean higher power & performance. As with cars though a bigger engine does not always translate to better performance so it is important to compare the specifications of tools at different voltages between different manufacturers.
The Bosch PowerForAll Tool range is a range of tools you can buy knowing that batteries are compatible with all tools in the range providing they are of the same voltage. eg 18v fits 18v, 12v (10.8v) fits 12v (10.8v) etc. Please also note that 10.8v is compatible with 12v & vice versa as it is just a name change. Indego Lawnmowers also use the PowerForAll 18v battery but require a cover plate to be removed if changing.
PowerForAll has many advantages not least the fact that once you have a tool with a few batteries then there is no need to buy the more expensive versions with battery & charger, you can just go ahead & buy the much cheaper no battery versions!
So remember PowerForAll signifies complete battery compatibility throughout the range. There is however, one caveat to this, some of the very first older chargers will not charge the very latest batteries & a battery charger upgrade will be required if you have a first generation charger. All batteries fit all tools however.
As of 2021 Bosch has licensed PowerForAll to other manufacturers whereby batteries between these manufacturers will be interchangeable.
You cannot use Bosch Pro (Blue) batteries in either 12v or 18v DIY (Green) products.

I have a selection of Bosch 18v tools and this chainpole is of the quality I have come to expect from Bosch. Very happy with my purchase.
Very good not too heavy tree pruner. Good for small branches.
I found it very hard to connect the pole it took three or four attempts with most of the family helping to get it operational. Once done it ticked all the boxes when I used it. I would advise that despite the shoulder strap it is top heavy
First time using Tooled Up and totally satisfied with price, quality and first class service.
Excellent fast delivery. The chain saw has been used and it performs very well and is easy to use even at my advanced years. Very happy with my purchase from Tooled-Up at a very competitive price after comparing with other companies. Highly recommended.
Very fast delivery, brilliant communications. Although I would have bought it anyway I was mislead by the offer of 1litre of chain oil, this seemingly was only included if you bought battery and charger which I already have.
Exact tool we required and as we already have compatible battery no need to buy battery and charger, a little heavier than we expected with weight at the end could do with a counter weight so easier to use
Best price I found and now added to a growing bunch of tools that use the same pile of batteries which is a great idea. Used a couple of times and does the job well though does need re-tensioning and the oil topped up frequently. Arrived in good time.
Have only used this product once but got on quite well with it cutting small over-hanging hedgerow branches. It's quite heavy for a small female like myself but, having a harness with it helps a lot. One thing to bear in mind is finding out about doing an under-cut first before you cut right through, because if you get the saw wedged, it could be very difficult to get it out if its several feet up! Very pleased with my purchase.
I have the hedging pole already so had the battery and charger. I have used this pole pruner a couple of times now, on 100mm dia freshly cut branches, and on 125mm seasoned old hop poles. It cut through these sizes fine at a steady pace. Just be aware that the pole section with the battery is not interchangeable between the pole pruner and hedging pole attachments. Each attachment needs its dedicated pole section. Why Bosch have made it that way is anyones guess.
Works well and easy to hold with battery low down
This chainpole does exactly what I expected and wanted it to do and enabled me to top a couple of conifers with ease. It then made light work of cutting the tops into fire suitable size logs. It's not the lightest but the shoulder strap takes most of the strain and the extended length is enough without getting into professional tree surgery territory. I've only had it for a couple of weeks and already three of me neighbours have borrowed it!
Excellent quality and saws through the tree branches very well. But I, mistakenly, thought that I could reduce the length of the saw to let's say half its length.
Great value for money product. Need to keep topping up the oil fairly often!
Great quality as you would expect from Bosch, good value and good service.
I am always perplexed that suppliers ask for a review the day after the product is delivered! I have tried this tool out but not actually used it for a "job" I tried it on a 5inch diameter log and it coped very well. For the money I think it is as good as one should expect. Easy to set up, easy to handle but of course at over 2 metres long it is heavy when reaching up to a branch but fairly well balanced. The upside is that once on the branch and cutting the weight actually helps the handling. I am very happy with my choice.
Very pleased with the purchase. Does what it's designed for well. Difficult to fault for construction, balance and effectiveness. The universality is a big advantage as another battery/charger need not be purchased if you already have these from another Bosch universal item.
Does the job Well thought out as ever Bosch design Good quality Easy to use straight from packaging Very good service by Tooled Up
At last a product that does what it's supposed to do. I recommend the bosch pole pruner, cut through a 3.5 inch pine branch like it was cheese. I also have the 18v hedge trimmer so only had to buy the bare tool. Better build quality than Ryobi.

Customer Questions & Answers
Q : Hi. What length does this pruner extend to please. Thanks
A : Good morning, I can confirm that this adjusts from 210cm to 260cm.
Q : What charger comes with this pruner if you order a battery with it?
A : Hi Nick, This depends what kit version you’re after. The 1x2.5ah option is the standard Bosch boxed product but the other three options are kits that we make up ourselves. The ones we box up here are all sent out with the AL 1830 CV charger. Just had a look on the Bosch website and they say the 1x2.5ah kit is currently being supplied with an AL 18V-20 charger, which I can’t find much information on but I assume that must be correct.
Q : Is there a battery and charger included in this deal
A : This product is currently available in five different variations of battery/batteries and charger - once you have chosen a variation (from the green drop down menu) it will list the price, contents and any included promotional items in the description
Q : Can the cutting head be rotated 90 deg to enable horizontal cutting? What effect does this have on the oil reservoir?
A : The cutting head is fixed on the vertical axis and can only be angled up or down
Q : I have borrowed this from a friend. It did the job beautifully. I can't get the two halves to separate to get the thing back in the box. Is there a knack to this? I'm assuming it's meant to separate after use to store it. Thanks
A : Hi Christine, there's no specific knack I'm aware of and as far as I know it should be the same as assembling it, just in reverse (as you'd expect!) - however, sometimes these poles tend to jam up and often it seems to be easier to tighten them than it does to unscrew them after use - it may just need a little gentle persuasion but if it seems to be completely stuck fast you might want to check with your friend to see if they are able to do it?
Q : What oil should I use other than the Bosch supplied oil please
A : Hi Adrian, I think Bosch recommend that you only use their own brand chain oil in their chainsaws which we do stock under product code 20993687 but we also stock other brands. You can go to the parent category from that product, or just type "chain oil" into the search bar to find them
Q : Hi, l have the old power 4 all style battery, can you tell me if this is compatible with this device. Many Thanks
A : Hi there, as long as it is a Bosch lithium ion 18v Power 4 all battery (of any generation or ah rating) it will be compatible with this machine
Q : How long is the tool fully extended?
A : I can confirm that this adjusts from 210cm to 260cm
Q : Is it quick and easy to take apart for transportation.
A : Hi Helen, it's very easy to disassemble it in so far as it is possible to disassemble it (if that makes sense) - the machine can be split into two sections where you see the black sleeve halfway up the shaft, and you simply rotate this sleeve by hand to unscrew it. The lower half of the shaft is telescopic so can also be set to its minimum length before carrying it around. These two sections are easy to carry individually and should fit into most spaces without issue, but aren't really designed to be broken down any more than that in between uses.
