    QUESTION: What are the common reasons that these units fail, and how do you avoid them?ANSWER: The three most common problems are: Cutting branches that are too large which will stress the metal bands on the inside and may cause the guide that keeps them moving alongside each other to break. This in turn will interrupt the connection between the handle and the blade, which results in malfunctioning of the unit. These units are meant for fine pruning. They do not replace loppers. Whenever the connection between the blade is broken, either by normal wear and tear or by misuse, the factory recommends replacing both the Extension Slide Set (metal bands with all connecting parts)and the Joint Casing with the brass pins. Failing to hold the levers in when extending or retracting the unit. This prevents the brass pins from dragging along the housing and wearing down prematurely. The pins lock the unit in place. Once the pins are worn, this connection is interrupted. Customers sometimes slightly bend the tubing so the units won't extend or retract easily. This may not be noticable to the naked eye, but may be seen if you put a straight edge along the unit.

Almost great wrote

One of my favorite garden tools. Easy to use once you figure out a few things. Great for trimming tops of tall shrubs and vines. They should make a beefed up version of this to cut up to 1/2'' because quite often you have to cut a larger stem and this if the cause for failure. This tool must be very popular because I want to order one for my son and they are sold out.

I am so pleased with my long reach pruners. They are durable and make pruning those taller tree branches a breeze.

Great Reach Pruner wrote

This is a great reach pruner with a very sharp blade and great cutting power. Especially given the extended length. This saves tons of time in areas where ladders would have previously been needed to reach tall vines & shrubs. The tool feels fairly sturdy to use, but I have found over time that can be a bit delicate if handled roughly. Because I use these commercially, I have found that adding locktite to several of the screws helps keep them from backing out after prolonged use. Will purchase again

Excellent Product wrote

This is an excellent tool for picking hard to reach fruit. I used it to pick about 5 gallons worth of Loquat fruit with ease. The hold feature is key and is able to grab and hold very thin branches and stems.

Mine broke pretty fast. The rod inside snapped at the threads where the trigger meets the rod. I bought replacement components and rebuilt it. Lasted about the same amount of time then snapped exactly the same way. Boo.
