Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JennyB Not an easy to use pruner--awkward
I am gardener and when there was a price drop I decided to give these a try. I returned them the next day. When I tried these out I found the mechanism for using the pruners awkward. In part my hand is too small to get a good comfortable grip. A friend with bigger hands also did not find these comfortable.

Recommend going with simpler, better constructed pruners over these. Plastic binds and doesn't really reduce effort.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bird They work well...
Overall I'm satisfied with the purchase. They are sturdy, they cut well up to the diameter specified...I wouldn't attempt going over that diameter. Perfect for smaller pruning jobs though which is all I needed them for.

Very good trimmer and easy to use. Much more power than my old trimmer.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by CS Not so great.
The clipper we bought (my son also bought one) are very hard to work. The handle twists and they get stuck shut after you clip a branch and have to pull them open again to cut. Not that satisfied with them. Will not get that kind again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gallus must-have for any pruning job
This was the second delivery from Peapod (online grocery service) I have received. And after the driver's first trip up our porch steps I realized I had never trimmed my "guardian rose bush" like I'd meant to after last week's delivery.
So while PP Driver headed back & forth between truck & kitchen, I quickly trimmed back the yellow rose bush so it would no longer pick visitor's pockets.
The Fiskars PowerGear pruners worked beautifully. I had no trouble at all snipping through woody branches as thick as my pinky finger. The gear design is a wonderful addition to pruning shears - very helpful.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by fizzie Lightweight, sharp and powerful cutters
I liked the feel of these cutters right out of the easy to open package. They are light and feel very comfortable in the hand.
It has a unique cutting drive system powered by a gear to amplify the cutting strength As you close the cutter the bottom handle rotates slightly as the power gear turns and makes cutting thicker branches much easier and cutting all branches with less fatigue. It works the same in both hands but feels more comfortable in the right hand due to the power gear action. Made of high strength plastic there is no worrying about rust either.
It also has a handy lock on top that's easy to use and is brightly colored making it easy to see or find
