Stong, reliable and east to use. Cant go wrong with a craftsman. Blades are not that exspensive.
The cutter worked fine for about two weeks but after the top jaw bent off center while cutting a small bush, it would not perform satisfactorily.
Great for cutting PVC trim.
We use these for cutting trim for garage doors. It makes a clean cut and saves us lots of time.
This is my second one, and I've given it as a gift to a chosen few gardeners. Superb for trimming shrub and small trees...clean cuts and very controllable. Highly recommended.
