     Hi Peter I have used the Bosch shears but found them a bit under powered to be honest for Buxus , but they were someones elses shears so i dont know what state the battery was in . Bosch is generally a great brand . 

    I have the Stihl HS47 trimmer I dont use it for keeping buxus balls in shape but great for random cutting back . 

    I tend to use an 18v cordless hedgetrimmer on Buxus and hand shears .
