Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by suburken Excellent value
I needed a manual pole pruner for 2 apple trees on my property. I found this in stock at my local Home Depot. I looked it up online (on my phone) to check reviews. Reviews were excellent AND it was on sale on Home Depot's site for $10 less than in-store price. I purchased it online with "free store pickup." I brought the pruner to Customer Service, showed the online transaction # and happily left with the new, discounted pruner. It works as described, adjusts easily and is plenty long enough for my trees. Saw blade will be handy for thicker branches. Synthetic pole material won't rust, like my previous pruner did. Highly recommended.

This is a great pruner. I have used it about 12 times and it is working perfectly. The only set up out of the box is to loosen the wing nut and rotate the blade up and tighten. The Bypass sheer works great with minimal amount of force to cut through the branches. The ones that do not fit in bypass sheer are easily cut using the saw blade. The only recommendation that I have is when using the saw only use the weight of the saw to push down on what you are cutting is all you will need.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Handyman GOOD BUT MISSED EXCELLENT BY A HAIR!!
The only reason I rated this trimmer as good instead of excellent is because of the head design. The head needs to incorporate the rope into the pole somehow to keep it out of the way and easier to use in tight places. The rocker cutting jaw is an old design that works well enough but is hard to use in tight confines. The pole is strong and steady and the saw is right on the edge of being too thin to keep it from bending in use. I bent mine trying to cut an medium limb [ 2 in.] but after straightening it worked well on rest of job.
Overall I would say this is still a good tool for the money and a small job, but a little light for heavy work or commercial work.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by David For light use at best
I purchased this to clear overhanging limbs from my vegetable garden. I does work fine with smaller limbs but the cutting blade began to warp after five or six cuts and the spring mechanism had to cleaned out several times with a screwdriver to keep it operational. If you do purchase this item also buy an additional sawblade, as the one included dulls quickly. Descent for the price, but if you are planning any serious work buy something a bit better put together.

It does exactly what I need it to. Almost no effort is needed when pulling the rope, and the blade cuts through bigger branches in no time.

Worked well for a couple of branches and then the hook part where the blade cuts the tree branch broke.
