This product looked good in the store, but once out of the package, it was a complete failure. The ratcheting mechanism requires the handles to be opened extremely wide, effectively making this pruner operate like a small shears. It literally requires two hands to operate. Definitely not what I wanted, so it was returned and replaced with the absolutely fantastic Fiskars Titanium bypass pruner.

The pruners broke because the parts are plastic, see photo. The grip is too wide, so you cant grab it properly.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by th1946 Very good quality product
It took a few branches to understand how the ratchet action works, but once I got used to it I fell in love with this tool. It works as advertised and is easy to use even on larger branches. I have owned many pruning shears before, but this is the best I have ever used.

this tool broke after 2 minutes of use. It looks strong, but it is very weak. it's a design flaw and not abuse. the sheet metal underneath the hinge bends (look towards 7 o'clock position from the hex bolt, you can see how the sheet metal deformed inward). It then breaks where the blade meets the plastic and renders it useless at it won't close on the smallest ratchet setting anymore. It's the weak point in the sheet metal on the outside that bends, deforms the plastic inbetween and breaks the tool.
this should not be happening. whoever design this should've known. whoever put this tool into the Home Depot portfolio should've known.
love fiskars products, this tool looked strong, but this is complete and very expensive trash. do not buy. how this ever got 4 stars average is a total mystery to me. this shouldn't be sold at HD.
I have a picture but this form won't let me upload the image (504 Gateway Time-out). If anyone at HD is reading this, happy to send it to you.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Beckyaa Good hand pruner
This pruner is very sturdy and works very well. The ratchet action makes it easier to cut through small branches. My only issue with it it's the handles are so large that I need two hands to squeeze them together from the widest open point. I am female but I do not have small hands. For a man with large hands it is perfect.
