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.
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.
The Craftsman 14' Tree Pruner works well, I like the foam grip on the handle. I looked at quite a few more expensive ones and this one matched up pretty well.
Well made. I bought online. Light weight. The limber is a little smaller than I expected. Great warranty.
This tool is really usefull around the house especially when you have alot of palms. Like the item its very strong. If you are looking for one of these instead of a ladder this one is great! I have it myself and it does exactly what it is sappose to.
Purchased this to reach some dead limbs that were extremely high. Worked really well, got all the limbs I wanted to down. It was slightly flimsy andI had a little bit of trouble securing the plastic locking mechanism but it did the job.
for the money this is an excellent trimmer and it has a lifetime guarantee
This product reduced my time and eliminated the need for a latter
This thing is long. I know it says 14 ft pruner, but I was pleasantly surprised when I picked it up. I have never used one, so it took a few minutes to figure out, but once I did, it worked really well. I was able to reach a bunch of limbs safely from the ground. It is very sturdy and quite easy to use. It should last many years.
You get what you pay for. It gets the job done. Not the best nor the worst.
