Hi there, thanks for checking out Aussie Green Thumb, I appreciate it. If you want more, click here for all my best advice, exclusive content and FREE bonuses!
Yesterday I reviewed FISKARS PowerGearTM Hedge Shears. Today I am going to be looking at the FISKARS PowerGearTM Pruner (Medium).
FISKARS PowerGearTM Pruner (Medium)
FISKARS PowerGearTM Pruner (medium) is a certified Ease of Use garden tool product through Arthritis Australia.
This variety is a bypass secateur (don’t understand what this is, find out here), and the large variety also comes as a bypass secateur.
I will be reviewing below based on the criteria set in my garden tools report which is available FREE when you sign up to my monthly newsletter tips which can be done by filling in the form on the right side bar (name and email).
How do they feel in your hand?
The FISKARS PowerGearTM has an innovative rolling handle design that is designed to follow the natural clenching motion to maximise power output and reduce stress and fatigue on the muscles and joints.
Because this is uncommon you will probably find that the tool feels strange at first but don’t let this be an immediate turn off because other than the weirdness, I actually found it fit quite snugly in my hand.
It will take a little getting used to.
Is the safety latch easy to manoeuver?
I’ll be a little blunt here and say no.
Unfortunately I found that the rolling motion design of the handle sometimes leads to the safety latch not matching with the hole it is designed to latch into which requires you to use both hands to re-match them together.
A good pair of secateurs enables you to use the safety latch with one hand only so I was disappointed here.
