Newer but not better.

My older Craftsman pole saw/pruner offered toolless saw blade removal, which was nice because sometimes the saw blade gets in the way of pruning dense branches. Now I have to carry a wrench and screwdriver with me when pruning trees.

Criticism

Junk

I bought this tree pruner just over a year ago. There is one pole within another pole which you can extend to adjust the height of pruner. There was a black ring around where the two poles connected which could be tighten to secure the two poles together so they would not move as you sawed/pruned the branches. After using this pruner one time this black ring broke off so now I can not secure the two poles. I put the pruner away for the year and forgot about it until I used it on a neighbors tree earlier this year and remembered it was broken. I can not get a replacement "black ring" anywhere. Craftsman does not sell them separately and of course its too much work for them to obtain a new one from the manufacturer. I will not be buying another tree pruner from Craftsman.

Will wait and see!

After reading all reviews I can see some of the negative points. I had one of the older pruners from craftsman and it worked fine for years. There was a wing nut for easy removal of saw blade instead of a short screw. The tightening pole collar never broke. The saw blade was thicker and this new saw I had to grind down the bottom some because it hung out about a quarter inch into the pruner. I want all that opening available so I can fit the maximum branch to cut. And I would put two rivets in the top mount instead of one to make it more secure to the pole. It has some play with just the one rivet. It was on sale and I used my points to get a good price. Hopefully Craftsman will listen and make changes!!

Even this has lifetime warranty! Gotta luv it :)

|

2 things would've gave it 5 stars for me. The saw blade screwed on overlapped the pruner opening 1/4 inch or more depending on which of the two set screw holes you used. I had to grind it back to get full use of pruner. Small irritation but, Makes a difference on branch size to grip n cut. And it needs two rivets on top cap to pole instead of one to make it a stronger fitting. It wiggles slightly and I know the more I use it it's gonna get worse. They could've added an extra 1/2 inch to make that work.

Good - while it lasted

|

I bought this Craftsman Tree Pruner from my local Sears store sometime in the summer of 2011. I've always been satisfied with Craftsman tools so I expected this pruner to be durable. It did the job pretty well, but after 3 years the saw blade was totally rusted and the spring mechanism broke this past summer (2015) while pruning a branch. My final disappointment came when I brought it back to Sears for warranty replacement - they refused to replace it because I didn't have proof of purchase!

Poor Quality head

|

Had this pruner for a little of a year and the pot metal head completely shattered, first the cutter portion could not take the pressure of cutting a branch and broke clean off the head and then not long after the portion of the head attaching to the pole shattered in three places! I guess you get what you pay for even if it does carry the Craftsman name!

Great tool!

|

I needed to prune some trees and this item worked wonderful. Saw is sharp and the snippers snipped. Telescoping arm works great. A+

Pole pruner

|

This has been a life saver so far, So many limbs that I could not reach before are now history. I like the soft grip and the telescoping feature to add length is great. Highly recommended!

Does the job!

|

Just used this yesterday to trim some vines and small branches. It did a good job. The pole length is adjustable which is very helpful at getting to areas where you'd otherwise need a ladder. I've only used it once so only time will tell as to the quality but it appears to be sturdy.

Craftsman 14 ft. pruners

|

Made a poor cut on branch that wasn't clean but ragged. The saw was too curved to cut through the branch. Saw was too flexible + thin + looked as if it would break.

Not bad for the price.

|

I've used this pruner a few times and haven't had any problems. It has a long reach, the telescoping pole feature seems fine so far, and the saw blade is sharp and works as well or better than the one on my old pruner. Since the pole is reinforced plastic instead of metal, it is not quite as rigid as I might want, particularly when extended all the way, but it is lighter than a metal pole would be, and works fine once you get it into position for the cut you want to make. The lopper works better than my old one, but still can get stuck, especially if the saw blade is attached in the straight position, since that makes the corner of the blade intrude into the lopper. But the saw cuts better in the other position anyway.
