Rated 5 out of 5Â by Pepper Tiny tool accomplishes a mammoth job!
What can I say? I knew Fiskars could make scissors, but had no idea they made superior tools also. Thankfully I found out. This tree was growing rapidly and was too close to the foundation, so it needed to come out. As you can see the tree is taller than the 2 story house and while I wish I would have thought to take an initial picture of the entire tree, just know it hung over the privacy fence and almost touched the neighbors house. I originally thought I would try to buy a small power saw on a pole but found out that it was too heavy for me to handle even when it was not extended, so I opted for this tool. I never expected to get the results I did. I am not done but wanted to take a picture of the height of the tree before I go in to cut the top off. The neighbor came out and said 'good job' after I had just started taking the lower
limbs off. Little did he know I was planning on taking the entire tree down. He came home 2 hours later and found the tree trunk stripped except for this top part. I used the pruner to take the length of the limbs back so that the weight of the falling branches would not damage the fence. I found you had to use very little effort and the limbs just sliced right off. That was so unbelievable. Whoever found that technology is a genius. I then used the saw and found out it was just as easy and gave me good control so that I could let the limb slowly drop and then could go back in and finish the cut and let it drop safely away from me and the fence. And this huge tree got stripped down rapidly and precisely with no damage from those heavy limbs. Not only that but the product is lightweight and caused me no pain in my arms, neck or back. What would have cost me a fortune to call a tree company in was accomplished with this little tool. Amazing! WOW does
Fiskars make a chipper cause I sure have a lot of limbs? I can't wait to tell all my friends about this product. If you have a tree trimming job you need to try this product, even if your tree is two stories high!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Xander Best $40 spent! Worth every penny!!
Bought this to trim some branches overhanging my house which became a problem, they were getting in the way of the lines and the leaves were overwhelming to clean up in the fall and really clogged up the gutter. This awesome tool cut the branches in absolutely no time at all. Did it from the safety of the ground. Before I had to use a ladder which was cumbersome and I still could not access the branches I needed trimmed. For $40 this thing is worth gold!! Safe to use, massive reach, the pruner/lopper works surprisingly well and the saw cuts pretty quick as well and is adjustable, couldn't ask for more. Does everything I need it to and is affordable. BUY IT, YOU WONT BE DISAPPOINTED!!

This is an excellent manual pole saw. It really does have quite a reach to it. Overall no complaints however I do wish the saw blade was a little thicker... Seems to flex a bit much but otherwise it's great!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by DYIer Fiskars tree trimmer - great value and quality
The Fiskars tree trimmer has given me very good use in multiple tree trimming uses. It is light weight , but strong- and well made. The levered cutting blade is sharp and needs only minimal leverage. The saw blade can truly reach the 14 feet as advertised. The valve per cost is excellent. The effective ease of use is the most valuable asset. I have had other tree trimmers that don't match up.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Chris Good value, but will it hold up?
See video for details on usage - one tip I have found from a decent amount of use is that you always have to keep tightening the blade with the wingnut at the end of the pole or else the blade gets wobbly while it is being used.
