Fiskars Power-Lever Pole Saw & Pruner Review

My Rating:

Fiskars is a Finnish company with centuries of experience behind them (they trace their origin to 1649)! Their power-lever extendable tree pruners make cutting your high branches easier than ever. They have a lifetime warranty which promises that their saw and pruner will be free of workmanship and material defects for the life of the purchaser. This warranty doesn't cover environmental factors, sharpening, accidental damage, normal wear and tear, industrial or commercial use, or misuse.

Their power lever pruner boasts dual action, and its cutting force can slice through limbs approximately 1 1/8 inches thick with just one pull on the guide rope. The saw is a non-stick, corrosion-resistant 15" blade that slices through larger limbs easily. The dual pruner and saw are mounted atop a telescoping fiberglass pole that reaches out 14 feet.

PROS

  • Extension pole holds well and is very versatile
  • Easy to clean and to install durable, multi-use, strong, sharp, and great quality
  • Perfect for trimming palm fronds (with the caveat that it does dull the blade), hedges, pecan branches and walnut tree limbs
  • Trimmer provides several more feet than other trimmers at the same price
  • Went through a 4 to 5-inch pine branch like butter

CONS

  • Telescoping handle doesn't lock as tight as it should
  • Saw and pruner required a little too much muscle work
  • The pruner has some projecting parts that interfered with the use of the saw

KEY FEATURES

  • Perfect tool for cutting those high branches without using a ladder
  • Power-lever technology increases leverage and provides two times more cutting power
  • Includes one precision ground, fully hardened steel pruner - ideal for cutting smaller branches as one strong 15" wood jigsaw for cutting larger branches
  • Steady double-locking system makes sure that the pole extension stays put
  • Lightweight yet strong oval shaped pole vastly reduces flex, lets you control the cut's direction, and fits into your hand's natural shape for increased comfort
  • Rapid-release thumb lock with a secure extendable pole at the correct length
  • Low friction rust resistant coating makes cutting jobs easier - The blade glides right through the wood, helps the blade to resist rust, and stops the blade from becoming gummed up with debris and sap
  • Detachable saw blade can be utilized like a hand saw for cutting those thick branches that are found closer to the ground
  • Full lifetime warranty

PRODUCT REVIEW

The lightweight pole is designed to fit into the correct shape of your hand.

The blade material of this item is steel; it has a bypass type blade cutter, has coated blades, and is corrosion resistant. It boasts two fiberglass tubes that can slide into each other; it's approximately 7 feet long when retracted. And the tubes can slide apart to about 14 feet. It doesn't come with a safety blade cover, but this blade has a wingnut which loosens so the blade can be folded down and retightened.
