Stuff: Fiskars PowerGear Pruner

As I have headed back into the garden recently, I remembered how much I like my Fiskars PowerGear Pruner. These have lasted for a long time with just a little sharpening every now and then. When I do the big rose pruning job at the end of each year, these are the pruners I want in my hand.

The bottom handle rotates as you close your hand and this helps to reduce the odd hand movements and stress that traditional pruners can cause. Even more, this tool allows me to attack much larger stems and branches than I probably should. I have never come close to breaking the blades or breaking them in any other way.

I love it when I find a tool that works. Sometimes I make the common mistake of buying a cheap product instead of something in the middle of the price curve. I am always disappointed when I do that and I have to remind myself that certain products are worth their price, even if you have to pay a little more for them.

You can find more reviews and information via the Amazon link to the right or at Fiskars web site at: http://www.fiskars.com/.

I really like these pruners. I've had them for about 3 years (one of the first garden purchases for my new house) and they continue to be a great product.
