Stock Number Item Description Availability Price Order Qty
If you need to do a bit of pruning on the other side of a fence line or in the interior of a large plant or bush, this is what you need. The 30" long shaft will easily maneuver the bypass cutter into place and a quick pull on the hand grip does the job. And it always helps save your back by avoiding stooping or overreaching. You can cut or trim close to the ground without bending - think of asparagus harvesting. It also is handy to trim the topmost stems of a high bush or fruit tree water sprouts without the need of a ladder. You won't need it all the time but when you do, it's a life saver.

The handle rotates between being in line with the cutters to being at a right angle. The mid-shaft grip position is adjustable. Made in Italy.

  • Amazing tool!

    Kim, 8/3/2020 This tool is awesome when used for what it was designed for. I would not use this for trees even though that's what they suggest. It is perfect for clipping weeds and bushes. But my favorite thing is that once you clip something, it becomes a grabbing tool allowing you to pick up what you cut off without bending over. This has really saved my back! Perfect for selective clearing and trimming bushes like hydrangeas, rhododendrons, and other soft woods.
  • Not durable enough for serious use

    Chris Carvalho, 7/28/2020 I bought this pruner for cutting poison oak during trail maintenance, because it keeps my hands away from the branches. It worked well, but unfortunately after two years of use the handle broke. I'm trying to find a replacement to avoid throwing out the whole thing.
  • An answer to our prayers!

    Jennifer, 7/26/2020 Purchased this item for my mom who was recovering from spinal fusion surgery but couldn’t stand to not deadhead her garden. The pruner is easy to use and it allows you to remove the cut piece so the garden doesn’t look messy! She is delighted!
  • Why bother? It's a good idea but it's not executed well. It's not functional.

    Michael Tunney, 7/13/2020 Only good for slender stems. The grip is very hard to squeeze to make your snips. The blades are so thick, with plastic layers see pic), that it defeats the purpose of using it to get into the tight spaces you might want to use it for.
  • Long Reach Pruner

    Joel B. Wulff, 7/4/2020 I'm an older person with a lot of shrubbery on my lot. There are many spots that I can't reach. I do get help on much of the work, but there always seems to be a small branch or young, unwanted seedling that needs to be removed. This pruner is ideal for the task.
  • Lightweight with a long reach

    Bette Jo, 6/13/2020 Perfect for my needs. I am older and was worried it might be too heavy for me but it is light enough and easy to use. Perfect for pruning roses and reaching into the bushes for sneaky weeds and berry bush shoots.
  • Excellent Palm tree seed pod removal

    Thomas Califano, 4/26/2020 This tool is excellent for removing seed pods from my Pygmy date palms (rubellini). Normally I would have to reach in with hand pruners and suffer the thorns on the palm fronds scratching and puncturing my skin. Now I can safely remove the pods without the injuries to my hands and arms. I did remove the red grippers (which can easily be put back on) by the blades to make cutting the pods easier.
  • Perfect Pruner for My Needs!

    Linda Sleeper, 4/8/2020 Love this pruner - I am short and have back issues to boot. This allows me to prune weeds growing in the middle of my English ivy. I had a less sturdy one previously and it was fine but apparently it isn't made anymore. This one is much better! Concerned that it isn't shown in your catalog - I hope you aren't going to quit making it!!!
  • Long-Reach Hand Pruner

    Mary, 4/6/2020 I was expecting the pruner to be stronger and capable of cutting thicker branches.
  • Pretty good

    Jeremy, 10/28/2019 Just right for removing wisteria whips, but not suitable for more heavy-duty work.
  • The perfect pruner for shorter people.

    Thomas, 5/9/2019 This is a replacement for a similar pruner that we have had for years. It went into retirement mode . My wife loves it. She is short in stature and is able to reach a lot further to prune and to harvest flowers.
  • Lightweight portable and no grip fatigue

    Doug C , 5/4/2019 Easy grip Handel allows me to reach into difficult areas of bushes or tree brush. Lightweight and portable all trimming needs are easily handled without fatigue.
  • Avoiding thorns and snakes

    Kennedy lewis, 2/28/2019 I live in the South Eastern part of the United States. I have a lot of palm trees and sagos. The smaller plans needed to be trimmed and are covered in thorns, this tool gave me the reach to trim them without the thorn issue. I had let the sagos grow without trimming due to the rattle snakes in the area, I was afraid to trim them. Sagos are covered in thorns too and cause reactions where they stick you. This tool allowed me to trim the sagos and avoid the toxic thorns and any snakes that may be seeking shelter in them . I am very pleased and alive !
  • 1 hand pruning where needed!

    Robert Hinkel, 1/30/2019 I've used other long reach pruners, but needed 2 hands...OK if you're not holding onto a ladder. Adds flexibility to pruning jobs when you need it most.
  • What disability?

    Barbara Keck, 10/14/2018 What she said! Agree totally with the single woman with RA said! A perfect tool for those of us with disabilities and the ability to continue on given the right tools. I spent 6 years flattening my back yard and planting a beautiful garden with roses and other flowering plants only to break a hip. After the second hip replacement, I thought my gardening days were over. This tool allows me to trim everything without having to step on uneven ground. Tool is extremely light and easy to use. My garden looks amazing again.
  • Safety First with the Long-Reach Hand Pruner

    Gary Hein, 9/24/2018 The Long-Reach Hand Pruner allows me to deadhead the climbing rose bushes without standing on a difficult to balance step ladder and to lean over the second story balcony rail to finish the job.
  • Long Reach Hand Pruner

    Stan Tucker, 9/20/2018 Great tool! It allows me to stand on the ground and trim our Robellini palm. Its fast and cuts with ease. I removed the red blade guards....now it cuts with even less force...love it!
  • Great tool

    Doug Brunst, 9/6/2018 Works very well, a handy tool.
  • Worthwhile investment

    Justa Jewel, 8/20/2018 I wish I had bought these a long time ago! I'm very happy with this pruner; it is high quality and easy to operate.
  • Long Reach Hand Pruner

    Craig , 7/22/2018 The tool works good for trimming beaugainvillia.
  • Pruning Independence!

    Sherry Anderson, 10/29/2017 I am a single woman with Rheumatoid Arthritis with a lovely, but overgrown yard. My attempts at finding a reasonable lawn guy have been fruitless and I came across the Garrett Wade catalog on accident -- but what a life saver! My first purchase was this long-reach hand pruner. I was able to remove all the creeping fig vine from my house before it over took the walls, the windows, myself, and my pets. Now I can't wait to buy my next product. Yard guy be gone! I can now declare my pruning independence!
  • Thoughtfully designed pruner

    Carey Boethel, 10/15/2017 You have to admire a product which is so thoughtfully designed to serve its purpose that it is fun to use despite the fact that it involves yard work. The most remarkable feature is how little it weighs. Extended reach pruning can be an ill advised undertaking as a risk for developing lower back problems. That is simply not the case with this effective pruning tool.
  • A problem solver

    George McIntosh, 9/9/2017 This clipper solves all sorts of problems. I am 93 and need a cane for balance. Dealing with clipping anything low on the ground or beyond arm reach on a shrub or tree is just not possible and would be difficult and dangerous if attempted attempted with a ladder. This single ingenious and very useful device is now the most useful tool in my garden collection.
  • Not enough power

    C D F, 5/21/2017 Not strong/sharp enough to handle small woody cuttings or other thicker varieties of softer plants. Also, very hard to engage locking mechanism. Works best for small diameter trimming, disappointing.

  • Very useful tool

    CM Kelly, 5/15/2017 Love the product, does what it needs to do. Really helped with trimming roses from a really tall bush. I like that it grips what it cut so you can dispose of it.
  • Long-Reach Hand Pruner

    Debbie Layton, 5/12/2017 LOVE it! I feel less helpless now. This was an excellent addition to my gardening collection. Because of my back issues, and not-so-great balance, pruning can be difficult. This is a tool I look forward to using! The ladder can stay in the garage for awhile.
  • Long-Reach Hand Pruner

    Joaquin Oliva, 3/21/2017 Highly recommended for older people or for anyone who has back problems.
    J Oliva.
  • Great Clipper

    Geoff, 7/31/2016 I wish it were a little bigger. The best feature is the gripper next to the blade that hangs on to the piece you just cut so you can control where it goes !!
  • well designed pruner to add to the garden tool kit

    Howard, 7/30/2016 the design and function of this pruner meet expectations for getting at hard-to-reach suckers and twigs. I like the efficiency and speed of working without needing a step stool, and the red plastic hold and grip is good for hanging on to the cut piece for collection and disposal.
  • Quality Counts, Garret Wade Pruner is a true Value Product

    Franklin Grube, 7/21/2016 All of the users comments about the lightweight, extended reach, versatile applications are well founded but I believe a key attribute is the Quality materials and construction of this pruner. I have owned 2 other similar long reach pruners that were difficult to use and failed prematurely due to substandard materials and assembly. This Pruner may cost a bit more but the quality and ruggedness are well worth it.
  • Saves back and ladder injuries.

    Edward Brown, 7/1/2016 Great pruning tool without bending over or climbing a ladder.
  • Useful but limited

    Dan, 5/6/2016 Great idea, but not a heavy duty pruner as others have also commented. However, good for getting into thorny rose bushes. Also use for nipping off small oak seedlings out of the ground.
  • Great for Poison Oak and Ivy

    Chris Carvalho, 4/29/2016 I got this tool for trail maintenance work. It keeps one's hands and arms away from poison oak while pruning and makes the work much easier and safer. It's a big help. Two improvements: The plastic grippers on the blades make larger branches hard to prune as they restrict the blade travel. I removed them. If the head tilted it would reduce the chance of the blade tips getting dulled by rocks or soil when trimming close to the ground.
  • Expected more from the description

    Mel, 3/10/2016 I like that it is so light weight, but am disappointed that it cannot handle any but the smallest trimmings.
  • Wonderful addition

    R. B. Franklin, 3/8/2016 A great addition to the garden tool offering. Works great. Particularly well suited for reaching in and avoiding scratched arms. This is such a handy tool it could only be improved it it had the ability to be extendable as this would allow getting at the smaller shoots and twigs above the current reach
  • customer

    darlene watson, 3/6/2016 it is a handy tool for all the briars I have but my hands aren't big enough to grip the handle . I have to use both hands but I love that I don't have to bend over much to clip them. I would recommend them to a friend especially a male .
  • Call me Stretch Armstrong!

    Kathy, 3/5/2016 With this tool I can extend my reach way inside those pesky wild blackberries to hack them off close to the ground and not get my hands & arms clawed up by all the thorns. Also handy for whacking off leggy, woody weeds prior to spraying. I love this tool. So great for a short (I mean vertically challenged) person.
  • Great tool

    TED GABRIELSEN, 3/4/2016 So impressed with this I bought one for my sister.
  • long-reach Hand pruner

    Marie, 3/4/2016 This does a great job extending my reach, but handles only smaller diameter branches. Best for water sprouts.
  • Super Tool

    John, 8/13/2015 One of the best tools I own. Works like a hot knife through butter.
