Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kcshopper so far so good
Have only used one day, but the product got a lot of use! I (5'3") got all the branches cut back that I never could reach before. I figure I saved at least $200 from having a professional come. Super easy to use on small branches, more coordination needed on larger branches where I actually had to saw. Product came pre-assembled right out of box. Instructions on how to use are not good but it's easy to figure out. Very happy with purchase! Word of advice - make sure you have plans on hauling away branches, they accumulate quickly! :)

Poor construction and material quality.
Pole does not maintain extension even when "locked" and pole material cracked inside the sleeve after one use. It may be that the pole itself was damaged during delivery.

This is my second fiskars pruner with extension. Blade got dull on my first one and broke near the blade from pushing too hard.

If you have any trouble with this, I would have to question your mechanical ability.

When I first tried it, the two pieces came apart ; I was really annoyed but realized that the nuts needed to be tightened properly. After securing and tightening one end onto the orange side, then the other, I was good to go. I am absolutely thrilled by this item. I have 2 ash trees that needed pruning and the tool allowed me to cut not only small branches with leaves, but also larger ones over 6" in diameter.
I cannot afford to hire an arborist, so this is perfect!
The blade is sharp and the cutting fast; the cutter is operated by pulling the cord: it is a good quality tool also. The only "problem" with this tool is that it is addictive! I was supposed to try it for a few minutes, but I liked it so much I ended up working on 2 trees when I had more pressing things to do :)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nick100 Good product
The saw has very sharp carbide tips and easily cuts through the red oak in my back yard. the 1" small limb cutter makes a clean cut every time. The locking mechanism upper lock nut needed to be tightened and a lock nut added to stop the nut from loosening. The bolt must be loose enough for the lever to move to the locked position. The locking lever should move freely at the upper position but give resistance at the lower travel. Most trimmers may not need this adjustment but the lock nut on mine is not locking as it should.

Works exactly like it's supposed to. Keeps the tree limbs away from roof and gutters

Pruning is my favorite yard chore and this pruner is one of my main tools. I spent a little extra on the larger saw blade and longer length but it was worth it. It gets up where I need it and the cutter is very strong and great. When extending the pole, there is a marker that tells you where to stop and lock both together, so you don't overextend it.
I overdo it and have gone through a few pruning shears but this pruner has put up with my abuse.
