FELCO electric pruners
Richard Tregoweth - Friday, June 19, 2009
If you have a lot of heavy duty pruning to do you can't go past the Felco 810 electric pruner. This beast will slice through branches up to 35 mm thick with the pull of the trigger. Unlike pneumatic secateurs, the electric worm-drive mechanism releases once your finger leaves the trigger (pneumatics follow through to complete the stroke before releasing). Treetools tested a new unit recently: the battery lasted all day and recharged quickly, the harness was easy to wear and the ergonomics of the hand tool were excellent - very comfortable in the hand. Worth the investment for commercial orchards and vineyards (and to be drooled over by everyone else).
