Customer Reviews:

  • Fiskars Pruning Stick
    This pruner works great, even fully extended I am able to cut 1.5" branches with no problems. The saw attachment take a little getting use to but once you get the hang of it, it works great....more info
  • Fiskars knows what they are doing
    In the $80 range with no shipping or tax, this is worth the money if you need to prune tree branches on a regular basis as I do. My husband loves it and thinks the construction is superior. Unfortunately, I have difficulty working it. He's 65, and I'm 59 and don't have the arm strength/length nor the the height (5' 3" and under are going to have trouble) to work it properly when it needs to be fully extended. Any man should have no difficulty, and it will pay for itself the first time you use it versus hiring someone to prune for you. August 30, 2007 update: Since December 2006 when I bought this, I have been forced to use this more because my husband has been unavailable due to his golfing addiction. In spite of my shortness, this tool works fine for me as long as the trunk of what you are cutting isn't more than one and one-half inch in diameter. However, there is a saw attachment which will allow you to get through the thicker branches. Over time, this tool has become indispensable to me, especially since I have six redwood trees....more info
  • Love It
    I have cut a zillion limbs since buying this product. It is well worth the money !!! ...more info
  • Tree Trimmer
    I like the Fiskars pruning Stik as it is very light and easy to use without the use of the pull down string. I had a bad experience years ago with a pull down string trimmer with wood handle and this style really is an improvement. I also like the way the cutting edge doesn't have to slip over a branch or limb making it very easy and fun to use. It is one of my favorite tools....more info
  • Excellent product, best I have ever tried! (Wish I could give even more stars)
    Having read the other reviews I was very interested in this Fiskars telescoping model. I too have had poor experiences with the more common style of tree trimmer [hold heavy pole in one hand, pull rope with the other or stop to untangle it again]. Very well designed with a good balance between light weight and rigid construction. The thumblatches on the swiveling head and the pole extension are easy to use and kept things where I wanted. Was pleasantly surprised by how readily the self-adjusting tensioning strap responds as you change the length. This model fits through tight gaps better than any other trimmer I have ever seen, cuts cleanly, and is even pretty handy in helping dislodge the trimmed section if it gets hung up on the way down. Was kind of disappointed when I ran out of branches that "needed" to be trimmed!

    I have not used the saw blade yet, but it also looks to be better made and more durable than the previous models I have used [which bend and become dull too easily for my taste].

    Now I have a problem... how do I hide this from my neighbor who likes to borrow (and abuse) my tools??? Guess from now on my tree trimming will be very early or very late in the day, LOL!...more info
  • Awesome!!
    Every once in a while I come across a tool where my expectations were fairly moderate but upon actual use I am just blown away. This pruning stick is saving me hundreds of $$$ in landscaping costs.

    I have over the past year or so reached the point where pruning my trees with a ladder and normal hand clippers is no longer safe. I was going to call a landscaping service and have them do the annual spring cleaning on my trees, but then thought I should tree one of these extensible pruning sticks.

    Here are all the pros for the Fiskars #9240:

    - came completely assembled and ready to use (saw blade has to be attached separately, but it was incredibly easy to do)

    - some reviewers commented on the plastic materials as a disadvantage - I have to say the stick is surprisingly sturdy and of course very light, which is particularly helpful when it is completed extended and when sawing

    - knife blade is surprisingly sharp and it is possible, with the hand pull, to cut branches the entire width of the blade opening. Occasionally, multiple pulls are necessary but still result in clean cuts

    - can't believe how sharp the saw blade is - I cut a branch ~ 5" in diameter about 20ft high off the ground standing on a ladder and if it took me more than 1 minute I'd be shocked

    - the hand pull works beautifully at all levels of extension

    Can't say enough good things about this pruning stick....more info
  • Easy
    Tlhis is the first such type pruning stik that we had purchased. It has been very easy to use and a nice reach when extended. Excellent item at an excellent price....more info
  • Fantastic!
    This is a fantastic pruner! It is the best of it's type I have ever found and used. I highly recommend it!!!...more info
  • Fiskars 92405935 Telescoping Pruning Stik
    Overall a very useful tool. Pros: extends to 12 feet and is fairly light for a elderly person as myself. The Saw blade works fine if the angle is adjusted correctly. cons: The cutter sometimes jams shut on small twigs less than a 1/4". The pull strap will not rewind at times, especially when collapsing the extension pole back to the normal position....more info
  • Perfect trimmer
    This thing is perfect. No annoying ropes to tangle and twirl when you're trying to trim. I have the smaller 6' version for quick low trimming as well. Fiskars makes a great product. I'm a designer and manufacturer so I'm always looking to make changes to existing products, I don't think I would change anything....more info
  • Not Worth It
    The saw blade attaches to the plastic head via a machine screw/wing nut and a plastic stud molded onto the head. When the plastic stud shears off you will be left with a floppy saw extremely difficult to work with...more info
  • Great product
    Hey,
    This is a great product - better than any other pruner I have used (I've used a lot of them). I have one of these (bought many, many, years ago from Menards) at my cabin in Michigan. It works great on both hardwoods and softwoods. It has been used & abused, and I have never had a problem with it. It always works flawlessly. There is no reaching for a rope that just gets tangled up in branches with this thing. Just line up the adjustable cutting head on a branch, pull the handle (that is built into the pole), and clip - you are done. Anyway, I bought another one through Amazon, recently, for my use at home. Unfortunately, Menards/HomeDepot (in the Chicago area) no longer sell this version of the pruning stik. They sell a much shorter version that does not nearly have the reach this one has. Also, I shopped around and this Amazon retailer seemed to have the best deal (including shipping) on this product....more info
  • Pruning Stik
    Really good trimmer, compared to the usual rope style approach. The adjustable trimmer blades feature is handy also....more info
  • Awesome tool, kudos to Fiskars
    This is a great tool. My family already owns 3 of the standard Fiskar Pruning Stiks. We have used them far harder than probably intended with no problems. I bought this one for those branches that are out of reach. In shipping, something was apparently dropped on the handle and made a tiny dent which prohibited the Fiskars from telescoping. One email to the manufacturer and they sent another out that day as a replacement. They had boxed the entire length of the handle and it arrived in great condition. Works like a charm!...more info
  • Fine, but don't stress it
    Product worked well on small, lives branches. The light weight is a real plus. However, in attempting to cut 1 inch thick dead wood (pecan), something broke in the sealed head and the unit cannot be repaired. I will probably get a replacement unless I can find another brand as light, and just avoid trying to cut dead wood. ...more info
  • Easy to use
    I had the Corona pruning stick for a couple of years and only recently discovered that Fiskars had also made the pruning stick.

    Compared to the Corona, the Fiskars is definitely better. The cutter on the Fiskar opens outward, so it is much easier to position the brach between the shears. On the Corona, the branch needs to be placed in a hook-like slot from the bottom. The Fiskar has the pulling mechanism built into the stick. The Corona requires pulling on a rope that is connected by a pulley at the top of the cutter.

    The Fiskars is also much lighter which makes positioning the claw much easier. This becomes more evident when one is on a ladder. I used to struggle with the Corona on the ladder. Since the cutting requires tugging on a separate rope, the stick needs to be held by one hand. After about three branches or so, the hand that holds the fully extended stick simply gets too tired for more work. I used to position the stick with two hands and have my son pull on the rope from the ground. The Fiskar, on the other hand, is much lighter, and since the cutting action allows the left hand to be on the stick, holding the stick in place is much easier.

    We usually pay well over the price of the Fiskars to have someone come in to crown the trees. I crowned a relatively large tree (about 3 decades old) in about 30 minutes. So with 30 minutes of work, the Fiskars essentially paid for itself.

    After about an hour and a half, I ended up crowning two large trees and trimming branches of another tree extending over the roof.

    I really like this product....more info
  • Fiskars telescoping pruning stik
    Since we have several high bushes to trim each year, we needed a cutting devise that would help to do the difficult tasks.
    Now that we have the new Fiskars telescoping pruning stik, most high bush trimming is done without too much difficuly. We are happy to have purchased this tool....more info
  • Don't buy before you read THIS review... It's a GREAT product...
    The Fiskars 9240 is a superb product and does it's job VERY well. If you over stress it, like any tool, you might break it but I've not managed to do so as yet.

    Here's what you MUST know about this product.

    Don't buy it here. Period.

    Save yourself $24 by buying it at your local True Value Hardware store. It's locally owned, it's locally operated, and you'll SAVE money.

    I'm not associated with True Value in any manner.

  • Works really well but?
    This is a nice, light weight tool for trimming small branches high in trees and shrubs. It easily cuts branches up to 1/2 inch. The only reason I did not give it a five star rating is my experience with other Fiskars' tools with the same type of adjustable head. The head is a weak point, after a few months of use my experience is that the plastic head will fail. Even though it has a lifetime warranty; returning for repairs is just too difficult to be worth the trouble....more info
  • Greatest Manual Gardening/Cutting/Pruning Tool YET!
    I LOVE FISKARS! The Company and the Products they make.
    The First one sent to me was defective, Notified Amazon and told to Contact Fiskars, did so and they sent out a replacement ASAP at no Charge (hard to find good companys with integrity like that these days, Dont believe me? Check out my kodak revue at [..]I'm "taradiddle" over there, and kodak is the WORST Company I've ever encountered, they have zero morals and I will never buy from them again, oooo! sorry, I get pissed off thinking about how they ripped me [..]. and kept my cameras too!)
    Anyway, I hate shopping so internet shopping is so refreshing, but it can be hit and miss so when I got this Pruner from fiskars I fell in love w/ it, it slices threw limbs like butter, reaches further than your will believe and weighs so little.
    you get 2 choices on how to cut that branch, either slide the gizmo on the handle or pull the cord at the end of the handle.
    I use both at same times sometimes. Plus it comes with a attachable saw blade of which I have never tryed, only because my husband got me "chainsaw on a stick" for my birthday, and i use that instead, (Ill
    tell ya, he says, its "one" of the best gifts a man can get his wife ...imagine...Your Yard, Your Wife and a Chainsaw dangling on a stick which is hovering about 10 feet above her head, as she is clear-cutting the Neighborhood!)
    ok, so now I own almost every Fiscar cutter they make and am biased, does not take away the fact that this is one great tool!
    Fiskars is a great company and my husband is a great gift giver!

  • Telescoping Pruning Stik Fiskars 92405935
    This is a well designed pruner which enables me to trim overhead branches and vines without using a ladder or having to hire help.
    The blade is very sharp. The chain mechanism adds strength to cutting and needs only an occasional spritz of WD40. I bought this as a replacement. It comes with a lifetime (mine) warranty so I got a refund on the first one. I could not maintain my garden without this tool. In 24 years I have worn out four pruners with rope pulls. This pruner is far superior and well worth the price....more info
  • fantastic tool
    I had used this tool in Italy and I looked for it when I came back home. It cuts trough the branches (over 2 inches thick) with ease, the head rotate making the manouver easier, the cutting element is very sharp and it is not too heavy. I like it so much I bought one for each of my son-in- laws and for my son. It's really a fantastic tool.

    Fiskars Telescoping Pruning Stik #9240
    I bought this item because we need new gardening tools. What an improvement on the old rope pulled trimmers. The adjustable head is a nice touch also. ...more info
  • Top Notch
    This is a great piece of equipment. Always used the rope type trimmer before (used it primarily for shooting lanes for hunting). The old rope tangled in the vines, the head would bind up due to the weak springs etc. The Fiskars is of great quality and versatility. Long reach, adjustable head - I'll never use the old style pruners again. If you do a lot of pruning and trimming this equipment is just the ticket - well worth the price.
