I purchased this pruner for my husband last year ,he used it last week for the first time and the spring popped out it is useless and at a price of almost £90 there must be a manufacturing fault for several people to say there's has also broke.Do they ever read these reviews or just turn a blind eye.

I am a self employed gardener the first one i bought i sheared the pivot rivet so i used a 3.5 bolt in place. The cord broke.Do not force the cut as this does not work only stresses the tool.I bought a 2nd one the following year as they only last a season i only use maybe once a week or less. can anyone recommend a better one

How thoughts can change in an instant... using the pruner for the first time my thoughts were how easy this pruner was able to cut down the high overhanging branches, however suddenly there was a loud noise from the cutting end and the sliding mechanism just collapsed, ie. No tension on the handle. on inspecting the cutting end the chain link had become detached from the black blade and disappeared from view. it looked at first as though the chain had be thrown into the air and probably ended up in a neighbours garden. however on loosening the bolt holding the head mechanism i was able to see that the chain had retracted into the head part and that it was the pin holding the visible part of the chain to the blade that had failed. this was a brand new pruner being used for the first time and was used on branches of soft wood.
