Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by gardenbuff Excellent product
I bought this about a month ago and have found it to be indispensable and very easy to use. Standing on the ground to trim tree limbs is a blessing. And it cuts like butter. It says max cutting is 1.25 inches. You can rotate the head to reposition for different cutting angles as well. My elderly 80 yr old neighbor had some palm fronds laying on her roof. I told her about this, went home and grabbed it to show her how easy it was to use. She loved it so much she went to HD the next day and bought one for herself. even though I agreed to loan her mine anytime she needed it. She said her kids were threatening to take away her ladders due to her age, so this helps her out a lot as she does a lot of her own gardening.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by profrex A must have for pruning trees and shrubs, but…
The extended cutting head makes this the tool in between loppers and a tree trimmer. It's especially good for trimming and cleaning out unwanted branches deep in shrubs. BUT wear heavy gloves because the tool can bite. There are two alternative straps that close the jaws. The ball at the end of the strap that goes to the end of the shaft can remain slack, especially if the jaws jam and may then pinch your hand. Also, I broke a blade on a 3/4" dead acacia branch, so let's see how good Home Depot and Friskars are about the "lifetime guarantee." I'll buy another one because I don't find a better one, but I'll save the receipt.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PBK63 Works even better than I thought
At 75 I wanted a trimmer that was light weight (days of using those heavy telescoping models with saw blade behind me now). And I liked the slide mechanism vs rope pull. Found it worked great on trimming up to 3/4-1 inch limbs and easy to trim my large holly bushes and fruit trees. But near end of first use I forgot to get my thumb out the way when released the pull and that smarted! So remember to keep fingers out of the way of the slide when releasing it! Like the weight and simplicity of using this. If you do not need telescoping model (though there is one with slide as well as one with blade and rope pull) this is a great product. Highly recommend to those who do not need saw or telescoping models.

This is a good tool that works. Bought it today and spent over an hour cutting bamboo off at the ground. Best tool for lopping small branches above your head as well as suckers on tree trunks. The slide action us great for tight spaces and the ball pull in the end is great to maximize your reach. I do recommend wearing a work glove on your hand at the end as the ball pushes into your hand to get leverage when cutting

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Elsie This 54 IN. EZ REACH STIK TREE PRUNER is an excellent product.
This product is easy to use on the tree in my landscaping which needs constant pruning because it was planted too close to my home.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ems Convenient to do the job myself
The pruner is lightweight and easy to use. It is long enough to reach branches above the roof.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FXGuy A must for any yard
I bought one of these years ago and it lasted through years of use. It will cut through just about anything that the jaws will fit around provided it is still wet, but is also effective on dry hard branches under an inch thick.
There is a sliding handle with a strap as well as a ball handle on the end which makes it possible to cut from various positions. I've used it to quickly clear branches away from rooflines and car canopies. As a bonus, it also works to pick the branches off the ground and into the bin when you're finished.
