The ARS Telescopic Pruner
  1. Telescopic Pruner

Telescopic Pruner

Extending pruner for light pruning - great for climbers, fruit trees and the very tops of topiary.

More Information

Basically, a good pair of Japanese bypass secateurs on the end of strong, lightweight aluminium handles. Long reach telescopic secateurs for getting at those out-of-reach branches. Ideal for roses, fruit trees and all those situations when getting the ladder out seems a bore. Lightweight aluminium arm easily adjusts from 6' - 10' in three stops. Rust resistant chrome coated high carbon steel blade cuts up to 1/2" branches (depending on plant type, time of year etc*). This, and a 12' ladder, and you’re invincible!

Tips

    Don’t overdo it- it’s hard to see what you’re doing, and cutting at a bad angle can damage the blades. Some plants are tougher than others.

    Caring For Your Tools

    Most of our sharp tools are made from carbon steel - this means they will, through regular use, stain (and eventually rust) and gradually lose their edge. Caring for them involves three things…

    1. Correct Use:

    • Japanese steel is hard and sharp, and can be more brittle than some people are used to - it will chip if abused
    • Do not cut wire, metal, stone, plastic or any other hard material (even bamboo fibres and some very hard woods, especially knots and burrs, can damage steel edges)
    • Do not twist or apply uneven pressure
    • Cut diagonally across branches (not straight across) so you cut along the fibres
    • Pay attention to our maximum cut dimensions, and don’t overdo it (shears are not loppers)
    • Use the base of the blades, not the tips, for heavier cuts

    2. Keeping Them Clean:

    • Remove leaf resin, rust and gunk with a Crean Mate and water
    • Dry, wipe over with Camellia oil and store in a dry place

    3. Keeping Them Sharp:

    New tools won’t need sharpening for some time, but after a while you’ll notice them gradually lose their edge, especially if you’re box clipping (you need REALLY sharp blades to get a good finish with box). Use the Niwaki Sharpening Stones for best results (#1000 grit is best for general sharpening).

    • Sharpen Secateurs every couple of weeks
    • Sharpen Shears and Topiary Clippers EVERY TIME you use them - the difference is amazing
