Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by AdanVJr Made the pruning job A LOT easier
I had to prune 2 large oak trees that had branches growing over my roof which we giving squirrels access to my roof & attic. The snips cut through 1" thick branches easily. The saw cut through the thicker branches easy as well. When using the saw, it'll cut as you pull back, so pull back smooth and long so it'll cut as much as possible without much effort. The saw is held by a single small bolt with wingnut, it unfortunately loosens down after pruning a branch off, so you should retighten each time. The extension pole is very versatile and holds well. However, the farther its extended out, the more wobbly it becomes. Still, the extra length saved me from having to borrow an extension ladder, which I get nervous climbing.

We saw a professional gardner using something similar to trim palm tree fronds and started looking for something ourselves. This particular model gets good to great reviews. Lowe's sells something similar that got awful reviews. After reading all, once we brought the tool home, my husband tightened up all the nuts and screws. He used the blade to trim off palm fronds and the built in cutter device (using the rope cord) to trim low handing branches off our Bradford Pear. Overall, an excellent tool so far. Husband said he liked this so much better than having to stand on a ladder and use a saw blade.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by AnthonyS Cut an entire tree
I bought this in oder to partially cut down a tree that i didnt want in my back yard. It was a smaller sized tree that put a lot of leaves on the ground to rake up each week. It cut through the smaller branches with ease and I used the saw portion to cut off the branches. It extends for further reach which is a plus. When I used the cutting portion, the extension device dislodged from the pole and i had to keep tightening it throughout the trimming. The saw blade is sharp and its easy to assemble. The blade to cut the branches is pretty sharp as well and it cuts with ease as long as you have a good grip on the rope and handle. Make aure you have a good geip on the pole when you cut because it sometimes falls quickly and can injure someone if they are standing nearby. Also make sure not to stand under the limbs you are trimming. Wear safety glasses too.

I just purchased this saw today. Was a little skeptical because the price was so reasonable that it worried me at first. There are other similar pole saws at double/triple and more the price of this one, however, this one did a great job on doing what I needed it to do. I was surprised at how easy it cut the smaller branches with the cord pull cutter. The saw easily cut through the larger branches. I am very pleased with this purchase.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Robert0117 Does What It Is Designed For
I have an oak tree that was developing some dead branches on the lower limbs. This tool worked wonders. The snipper handled branches up to about 1 1/4 inch in diameter and the saw blade was amazingly effective on the bigger branches.
The extension worked well so it was easy to adjust for the length needed. It took a bit to figure out how to properly adjust the rope on the snipper, but once done it worked very well.
The tool exceeded my expectations.

This thing's several feet longer than any other similar trimmers I was able to find at the same price point. Why, I'm not sure, because the quality seems to be fine.
I'm actually a little scared of how easily the saw went through the pine branch I needed to remove. It was probably 4-5 inches across, and this thing went through it like butter.
I also used the smaller clipper on a few small branches, and that was equally impressive. Required almost no effort to slice through. I used it on one branch that was the biggest you could possibly fit inside the jaw, and that still presented little resistance.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rayman I have use this pruner around my heavily wooded lot for about 4 or 5 months. It's just what I needed. I know you can buy heavy duty pruners for a LOT more money, but this one is fine for me. The saw is very sharp and cuts through pine like butter. Works good on hardwoods too. I would buy this product again.

I had an older wooden pruner that was shorter and heavier. This Fiskars pruner is easy to adjust and use. It saved me hiring a tree pruner for my oak tree. It is definitely worth buying for the price.
