Fiskars® PowerGear2 Pruner uses patented technology to multiply your leverage, providing up to 3x more power on every cut. The innovative design includes modified gears and a specially engineered cam mechanism to optimize cutting power in the middle of the cut, where the branch is thickest and you need it most. Additionally, the fully hardened steel blade is enhanced with a low-friction coating for smooth cutting, less gumming and rust protection. The contoured handle features Softgrip® touchpoints and a unique rolling design that fits the shape and natural motion of your hand. In fact, this pruner makes cutting so much easier, it's earned the Arthritis Foundation's Ease of Use Commendation.
