This clever update on the classic hand pruner provides additional power to your grip by means of an internal ratchet. All cast aluminum, with rubber grip on the handle backing. Enclosed scissor-style finger loop provides added protection. Blade is carbon steel with non-stick coating, and can be replaced easily via a bolt in the side of the handle. Features a locking mechanism, plus a nifty little oil pad that slides into the handle, allowing you to clean and oil the blade on the go.
Using it is easy and intuitive--as you meet maximum resistance while exerting pressure on any difficult material, just relax your grip a bit and the ratchet resets with the jaws in place, giving you the power for an extra squeeze. It’s almost like an extra gear on your pruners, and gives your hands that bit of extra strength after a long day’s work. We recommend also buying a replacement blade (offered here), to allow you to keep working while you sharpen or repair the original.
