Sniper Pole

I am a man about the landscape maintenance and enjoy efficiency from FL wrote (September 10, 2017):

It is a great alternative to the larger bypass pole trimmer, requires some physical adaptations,,, but overall a great addition to the home owners arsenal of yard maintenance tools! Would make a great gift for those that after these tasks, it's not a commercial tool but is very well made and extremely useful!

Better than typical pole prunner

Barry- tree grower from MA wrote (August 02, 2017):

I needed something to trim evergreens that were 20-22' tall and could handle 1-2" branches. This did the trick. Much easier than loose rope on a pole prunner. Articlulating head is ideal for cutting branches no matter the angle.

works well if treated delicately

Tree Guy from MO wrote (March 08, 2017):

I bought this because every other pole pruner either has way too small of a cutting capacity or is heavy and cumbersome, making getting into tight areas hard. I really like it; I've used it for several months now and think it's a great product if you keep a few things in mind: 1) It isn't as heavy duty as the rope and spring ones corona and others make, it needs to be treated carefully. But I treat expensive tools carefully. I've pruned at least 100 trees with this and now all I take out is a smaller Ames pruner, a pole saw, my hand pruning stuff and this. Don't give it to careless crew members. I don't have a of patience for careless use of equipment, and you shouldn't be pruning when it's wet out so it shouldn't get wet...anyway it's withstood months of industrial use for me. 2) You need to extend it and makes cuts slowly and carefully to avoid binding. At full extension it's very wobbly and could easily bend. 3) It does have a tendency to bind more than other lopper pruners in relation to the angle of your cut. The further you're angle strays from straight across the grain to with it the more this happens (as it does with any bypass pruner). The moral is BE CAREFUL! If you can be gentle with it, keep it clean and trust anyone you're sharing it with it's great. It is much easier to use, much lighter, more accurate and a cleaner cut than the alternatives, it just won't take really any abuse. If you keep this in mind and treat it accordingly it will treat you right.

sniper pole pruner

jonathan from MA wrote (August 09, 2012):

it is now useless to me. the cord inside is all bound up [ it was only a matter of time when this would happen ]i thought it would last at least 12 hours of steady use , i was wrong. the thing got stuck going up and down. when i tried to fix the cord by taking the pruner apart everything fell apart inside . there was no way to put it back together correctly. i`m out $235. definitely not for commercial use.
