These are exceptionally good long-arm pruners.
They can cut and hold small branches and stems or (with one gripping jaw removed) just cut branches up to 3/4" in diameter. The cut-and-hold feature makes it particularly useful for reaching in among shrubs or over borders to harvest a prize blossom, or to reach up into a tree to remove a piece of fruit without damage to either.
The handles on both models rotate to orient the blades in the best position for the job at hand.
Sturdy aluminum, steel and reinforced poly construction. The shorter pruner has a fixed length of 39" and is more suitable for pruning up to 9' and for reaching into beds to harvest blossoms.
The telescoping pruner extends from 71" to almost 10' in length. This gives the average person the ability to reach things up to 16' from the ground.
Both are great for spring pruning or summer and fall harvesting.
