Essential for light tree pruning
Charlie N. Tree Research
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. Tilt-adjustable head and rotating handle for awkward positions. 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!
- Extends to 10' (3.0m)
- Cuts branches up to 0.5" diameter*
- Lightweight and adjustable
- Tilt head for tricky cuts
Niwaki Tip: 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.
