    Very good at lopping branches from two old and overgrown black poplar trees in my back garden! Secateur-type cutting blade very efficient, even when operated at the full extention. Which brings me to my only quibble - The info says that it opens up to 4m when fully extended (about 13 feet in old money). Well, I didn't actually measure it, but it didn't seem that long to me. I am 1.9m tall and the unextended tool was nowhere near my height so I would guess that the fully extended handle is around 2.5m, which is substantially shorter than I had hoped! I improvised by taping and extra handle composed of half a dozen 7 foot garden canes to the handle!!

    I have bought two of these pruners in the last six months and have had the same experience with each of them. I reckoned that for the price it must be worth buying since even if it was blunt after just one season's use, it would work out cheaper than hiring someone to prune all my fruit trees. In the event, that wasn't the problem. The cutter is wonderfully light and easy to manoeuvre; the blade is sharp and cuts even the meatiest and highest branch with ease, due to the ingenious pulley system and telescopic pole. What the pruner can't reach, the saw deals with very effectively. Lightness has its costs, however. The pulley mechanism is flimsy and the wheels and spindles on both my cutters flew apart after about ten hours' serious work. As I was working with the cutter fully extended at the time, I couldn't see where the bits flew off to and wasn't able to retrieve them. When the first pruner failed I informed the Amazon marketplace supplier who promptly gave me a full refund which is why I bought the second. I have written to Fiskars who now manufacture the pruner to see if they can send me replacement wheels and spindles since it seems silly to replace another pruner for the sake of bits which can't cost more than 50 pence. It's surely not beyond the wit of the designer to make this part of an otherwise excellent tool much more robust.

    I purchased this for my husband to replace the tree cutter he had inhereted which was about 50yrs old!! He got around to using it last month and he found it absolutely brilliant. Very lightweight and made easy work of the pruning. I gave it a try myself today and because I have a shoulder problem I didn't think I would be able to manage it, but it was a doddle. He hasn't used the saw yet but I'm sure it will prove to be as effective. Definately one to recommend.

    I wish I'd discovered this a long time ago. It allowed me to cut through thick branches which were previously out of reach even with a ladder, and the cutting action was extremely smooth and effortless. The only negative comment is that the blade on the saw attachment is too flimsy to be of any real use, but the pruner alone is well worth the money.
