    The first time you try our PowerGear® Pruner, you’ll be amazed — but it’s not magic, it’s gears.

This means you can power through tough stems and branches that you wouldn’t be able to cut with traditional pruners. For easy, comfortable pruning, our pruner also includes a contoured handle with a unique rolling design that fits the shape and natural motion of your hand. PowerGear® tools — the perfect choice for anyone who appreciates tools that make work easier.

    Thought this would be great for the wife. Not at all quality is garbage never should have made it out of testing. cant cut anything harder than pine.


    The best pruners I have owned!


    I would take it back if I still had the receipt! Not for small hands! The rolling handle just rubbed my skin raw! I have to readjust my hand position when cutting a branch.

    Purchased a pair of your geared shears from lowes stores and found the gears to slip when heavy cutting was applied. your design and engineers need to go back to the drawing board and testing. we purchased model aa1912 and simply did not like the cutting ability.


    You had a wonderful pruner for small hands and this does not replace it . I employ other women making wreaths each year and we loved the old style pruner with the grip not so wide . With the amount of use we put a set of pruners through this is a huge concern.


    I agree with Judith. This is not a replacement for the pruner for small hands, which I, as a professional gardener have used for year. Please bring back the Powergear Bypass pruner for small hands. I would also suggest you upgrade your quality check . The last ones I bought started missing complete cuts almost immediately.


    I really dislike this pruner for two reasons. 1) it took the place of the pruner for small hands which I loved. By far the best feeling pruner I've ever used. Fiskars discontinued it, sadly and replaced it with this one which is much larger and has a wider grasp which is uncomfortable for small hands. 2) after using it for several months, it fell apart. Fiskars, please, please bring back the pruner for small hands that you made a few years ago!


    I'm a big fan of FIskars yard tools. When I moved into my current home a few years ago the yard, especially the back yard, was in pretty poor shape. The bushes were all over grown, as were all of the trees, which made growing grass a real problem. I bought a pair of the PowerGear pruners and a couple loppers and got to work. I have to say that I was very impressed with how easy it was to cut through pretty much anything with these tools. The tools are very sharp and maintain their edge with minimal sharpening. The PowerGear system makes yard work easy on your hands and arms. I haven't had any issues with the durability of these tools and I've been using them for four years now.


    Have used this pruner for 2 seasons and it has cut and snipped everything I needed it to. Seems easy enough to use and my hands or wrists arent sore after pruning for an hour or more. Good buy.


    I used this pruner for about 10 minutes on a rose bush before the gear on the pivot handle skipped a couple of teeth, preventing the pruner from opening fully. When I twisted the handle to reset the gear to the proper position, whatever was holding the rotating handle together broke and the outer handle fell off. I can put it back on, but there is nothing left to hold it in place. This pruner may be designed for easier cutting but is not sturdy enough to handle a 3/4" rose bush stem. I would not recommend this product for anything heavier than cutting flowers.
