Customer Reviews for Felco® Model 2 Hand Pruners, 1-inch Cutting Capacity
Ready for pruning
Purchased the Felco #2 pruning shears with the leonard dual molded sheath and Silky 8.3" folding saw. The shears and folding saw fit perfectly in the sheath and the are readily at hand. Tired of the cheap big box shears so I decided to splurge this year. What a difference good tools make.
The best, and you'll have them forever
Excellent design, and especially love that it's possible to buy repair parts. I've had mine for more than 12 years, and have replaced the blade a couple of times. Never needed to replace spring, etc, but glad to know I can if needed. I'm an avid home gardener and also do volunteer maintenance for a couple of city gardens, and this pruner is always in its sheath hooked on my jeans pocket.
Best on the market
In my opinion, these are the absolute BEST pruners on the market!
If you prune for a living, they are the best!
Felco 2 versus ARS VS8Z
Felco 2 is the standard. We have recently tried the ARS VS8Z. We find that the ARS unit requires less effort to cut exactly the same size of material. The Felco 2 however is far easier to adjust and repair that the ARS.

QUESTION: Can the shear be sent in for repair?
ANSWER: Felco does have a repair facility which is mostly used for their more expensive power products. The standard hand pruners could be sent in for repair but by the time shipping, parts, and labor are added it is usually not cost effective. We sell replacement parts which are easy to replace.
