Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by ob1knobe Absolute Garbage
Received for fathers day, used it twice and the head broke off. I took it back to home depot and they gave me another one. I opened the second one last weekend to trim a tree, made about 20 cuts and the mechanism jammed. I tried to fix it but could not get it back together. Threw it right in the garbage. It its not worth returning for another, just to get frustrated again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by pgreviewer Not Bad, but could be better.
Works well, but nylon cord broke too soon and the head fell off a couple of times. (easy to reattach). Nylon cord should be stronger.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Bradb shears good/ saw blade attachment poor
Have this $80 pruner and the $40 pruner. This pruner has better shears, stronger pole, cleaner inside the pole nylon strap pull system. $40 pruner has external string and pulley system for cutter. $80 model has cheap, poorly designed saw blade attachment bracket. $40 model has good saw blade design.

I bought this pruner just before winter. Did not use it till spring. Cut three small branches on my Apple tree and cord/chain assembly went. Can only use the saw now. Waste of my money. Never again.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Jack Had Probelm with extention part of pole pruner slipping..
Used this pole pruner for about a week. Then when I extended the pole and tried to lock the extension in place, it began to slip and the lever used to lock the extension pole wouldn't hold the extension . Sawing caused the extension pole to slide in and out of the base pole..The cutting blades on the articulating cutter, pruner still worked fine.But even that , once it began to slip made using it not worth it...I'd pull on the handle and the extension would slip while cutting with the blades, like it did when I used the saw blade.... I also had two instances where the blades on the pruner crossed and jammed, like they jumped passed each other.... I was able to fix the jamb blades on that and it fortunately worked OK..That slipping of the extension pole needs to be fixed...It makes it worthless as an extension pole pruner. If they could fix that, then they would have a winner. I went back to my old string pruner..

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Allen Horrible. Not made well at all. Fell apart.
I bought this to keep my palm trees neat about a year ago. It;s very flimsy and started falling apart with minimal use. I had to jerry-rig the clamp which locks the extension adjustment and the hosel for the lower pole became loose, so I couldn't lock the saw in play. On top of that, the extension pole bent while sawing. Huge waste of money.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by PS Not a good produce
The cutting blades get stuck. This is my second one. First one was a gift. Thought perhaps I got a bad one. Bought another and it performs the same. I would not recommend this product.
