Our Pruning Stik® Tree Pruner makes it easy to cut high or low with a level of control traditional pruners with exterior ropes can’t match. A long, lightweight pole lets you cut high branches without the hassles and dangers of using a ladder, make low cuts without sore knees from kneeling or back strain from bending and easily reach into dense, prickly shrubs or tight spots. For the reach you need to cut your highest branches, the pole extends all the way to 12' and locks securely. The rope-free design means you can use both hands to maximize your power and accuracy, and an easy-to-grip sliding handle makes the pruning action smooth and simple. An actuating ball at the end of the pole lets you reach even farther and still prune with precision, an included 15" saw blade makes it easy to take down thicker branches, and the cutting head rotates up to 230º to let you prune and saw at tough angles. The fully hardened, precision-ground blade stays sharp, and a low-friction, rust-resistant coating makes every cut easier.

Very useful pruner. I've been in the gardening business for over 25 years and this has been the best pruner so far. The pros: the adjustable head; the length of extension; the ball at the end of the pole for those extra long reaches; the removable saw. Unfortunately, the cons: the saw supplied should be like the hand saws, the flat tipped saw doesn't cut into the wood very well, I changed to a pointed saw blade and works much faster; the clamp for the extension doesn't tighten enough, I had to trim some plastic off to allow the clamp to tighten more, still slips some. Hopefully, this helps Fiskars in their future models. Also, Fiskars has a great warranty. The customer service was very helpful and friendly.
I've had the Power Stroke expandable (which looks identical to the since to the Pruning Stik) March 2010 and have been very pleased with it. This year I called Fiskars looking for possible answers on why the jaws would not close all the way to cut. They didn't have any answers, but promptly sent out a complete new unit,. Now that's good customer service!
Bought it liked it but like everything these days it didn't last and broke within a year. Has a warranty so we shall see how that works
The first time I bought this product, about three years ago, I fell in love with it. Love the ratchet action and the nice saw that is included. The pole saw lasted about a year and a half. I was OK with that because it got a very good work out. The second one I purchased broke after about 8-10 months. Again, I used it often and decided for the work I got out of it, it was worth the 80-90 dollars. I waited a while, but eventually purchased a third. It broke the 4th time I used it. Something seemed to slip and the nylon strap that facilitates opening and closing the pruner would not retreat back into the housing. My intention was to take it back to the big box I bought it from, but I just got busy and foolishly let it slip by. Now we are in April and I bought my fourth stik saw from Fiskars. I have probably used it 10 times and yesterday the same exact thing happened with the nylon strap. This time I securely placed the receipt in my wallet "just in case". I like the product, but just wish it were built better. I love the ratchet effect, so I'll probably see if a better built one is available somewhere.
I just finished using this product for the third time to snip some fronds from a friends house. (It did perform beautifully snipping about fifty palm tree fronds/limbs easily, effortlessly on the first two uses.) The head of the snip just remained shut after snipping and would not retract. I pulled it open manually. I repeated the process. When I got home, I inspected the handle. The line had slightly twisted and had come out of its track. This is located in the mechanism that locks the extension. There is an end-knot of the line at the side of this locking device. There is a slight bulge in the track which, I believe, caused the de-tracking of the line. I just inspected this area again, and I pulled the knot out about two inches. And I have activated the snipper about 15 times without incident. I'll just monitor its performance and keep records, reporting back as I need to. I have a Fiskars lopping tool that cuts limbs up to 1.5 inches; have had it for five years, and it would rate five stars easity!!! Tks for listening.
These pole cutters are temendous when new. Extend a long way and cut very well. Overtime however the traps develop slack that jams up the jaws and extension shaft and becomes unusable. I wish Fiskars had a service center to get the trimmers restrung or had a diagram of how the pieces go together so it could be taken apart and reassembled.
One of my best investments in a gardening tool. I owned this for over 10 years and used it very frequently. The saw is still sharp as I pruned many trees every year. I saw branches up to 4 inches in diameter. I also used the cutting head to prune branches up to whatever fitted into the jaw especially if I know the wood is a soft wood. Once in awhile, when I full extended the stick and saw very hard, the stick had come apart with the saw stuck on the branch that I was sawing. I considered it was wear and tear on the clamping mechanism. For the $70 that I paid for it, it is well worth every penny. Even though it is only is only 12 feet, it outperforms the two other 14 foot pole pruners that I bought for $40 each. I highly recommend this product.
I hesitated before buying this as it seamed like it was double the price of others, but I wanted a long extension and this seamed to be the only reasonable choice. I used it for several years until all the plastic parts broke, unfortunately they do not seam to be durable. I do feel I got my moneys worth, and would still recommend it for light to medium duty use and as a good one in all tool for a homeowner, but not strong enough or works well enough for professional use. If you are hard on things I wouldn't recommend this tool, it can be a bit annoying as the parts can pull apart and then you have to take a time out and put them back together, just not a tool for hard use.
I think this is a great tool. I've had it over 5 yrs and it works better than the pull-rope, sissor type pole trimmers. The pole adjust easily although it has been slipping lately.
Agile tool to a point... Head broke after several months of use... Not very useful tool today, Just an expensive item in my garage.
I have both Pruning Stiks. Wonderful tools. Better living through design. Highly recommended. Light weight. Adjustable angle for cutting. Human arms extended option to increase pruning reach. Both hands on the Stick for better control. Ergonomic. The "flat rope" extends/retracts with the adjustment of the telescoping Stik Compared with the common pole pruner which is heavy, cumbersome, awkward: this is a joy to use. Decisions still have to be made if a saw cut is to be selected based on the size of the branch or its location. Neither a saw nor a pruner is easy to "help" when it is twelve feet from the ground. Thinking is encouraged.
Sucks... doesn't cut doesn't extend and there are no instructions on the packaging on why or how.
Great product. This is one of Fiskars better tools. Way better than the shear strap tree pruners. This tool does work and holds up. I've used it on about every thing including Citrus and Mesquite. You have to torque down the extension slide hold down considerably when using the saw or the shaft will slide if the saw binds up even a little bit, but other than that it has preformed very well.
