Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by B612 Much easier than expected
When faced with dead limbs and others in undesirable areas, I finally decided to purchase a pruner/trimmer to resolve the problem. I was dubious about the pruner being able to cut through dead wood even with the pulley system. It was a very pleasant surprise to find that the entire system worked well and was not all that difficult to use. I based my purchase decision on reviews I found on the Home Depot site and hope that this review will prompt others to invest a little more to get the quality product that will perform well making the job a whole lot easier.

Homeowner with plenty of mature trees, I needed a Pole pruner that would last more than a year or two. I researched pruners and decided on the Jameson. When I received it I was impressed with the build quality and the handling ease, switching from saw to pruner accessory was fast and simple. These pole pruners are not cheap but will outlast the $40 to $60 variety , plus make your pruning and trimming work easier. This pruner is worth the money and it's a quality tool made for Professionals so I figure it was what I needed. Have only used it a couple of times so far, but the double pulley action makes it much easier in comparison to the home variety cheapo's that I had been using, would buy again for sure.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Malicia Does what it does very well
I bought this for use on my property, I have a 100 yard long driveway though the woods, and trees near my house. I was trying down a sizable tree almost touching my house and had it roped in and tried to cut it down with a chainsaw. The tree turned, the ropes held it but it was impossible to take down with the saw from the ground. Not being a big fan of being on a ladder with a chainsaw, I remembered this and started cutting limbs from the top on the ladder with the sawblade attachment. It worked far far better than I would have guessed and I got the tree down without destroying my house. I use the pruner for all the low trees in my driveway, works like a charm, it can handle almost all of the fairly wide branches without a problem. This has proven to be of far more use than I would have originally guess.. great purchase, built well, works well. Only complaint is the sections latch mechanism is a little tough to pull open to separate, but still works well.
