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.

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.

Not the same quality as in the past

|

This pruning saw is made by Corona, and is identical except for the color and the use of a lower quality pull rope. The previous model, which many reviewers have noted far superior, was supplied by Fiskars..................................................................................................................
I had the original Fiskars version, and it served me well for almost 25 years until the outer tube developed a large crack. The warranty replacement they gave me was the current Corona clone. I'm now on my sixth one, and the only reason it's not the seventh is because neither Sears where I live has had them in stock for the last two years. In fact, the last time I was in one of the stores, they couldn't even find it as a stock item on their computer................................................Following are my reasons for the one star rating (I would have given the Fiskars model five stars by the way):.....................................1) The pull rope is very low quality and frays through as it rubs against tree branches. This is the primary reason I have returned them (and, Sears won't replace just the rope)....................................2) The knurled tube lock ring can't be sufficiently tightened by hand, so the inner and outer tubes slip whenever you encounter any friction. So, I am constantly adjusting, or carrying a couple pair of channel lock pliers, which reduces the life of the tube lock..................................3) A wrench and a slot head screwdriver are required to adjust the blade angle in the field (the Fiskars had a wing nut)..................................4) The two blade angles are several degrees different than the Fiskars, and don't provide as much cutting power.

Pruner works decently at full extension for cutting down palm fronds.

|

This pruner is a decent quality tool (probably not commercial grade), but a good value considering the price (less than 30 dollars on sale). I used the long saw blade with the telescoping poles at full extension to cut down palm fronds about 18 feet above the ground. The saw worked quite effectively, although it still took a fair amount of effort to cut through the branches (probably some 5-6 inches wide but flat). The telescope locking ring kept the pole segments in place, but the pole did flex some (to be expected at the full 14-foot extension). Hopefully, the single bolt and screw that lock the saw blade in place will not lose their holding power over time. I did not use the rope-and-pulley activated lopper, except as a test with some thin stems poking out from a hedge.

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.
