About this deal

I’ve used loppers before where the rope has got tangled or frayed and the mechanism dusty and dirty; this won’t happen with this tool. I suggest you look at the extended length of the pole rather than the “up to” cutting height, which is an estimate. Holding a heavy pole above your head isn’t an issue if you do it once but could be painful and awkward if you’re doing it all day.

Purchase today and experience the difference this high-quality, reliable, and accessible tool can make in your gardening tasks. Some of the willows had branches over 12 inches in diameter (and were very rotten ) but you can cut from behind and out of harms way. Batteries have improved so much over the last decade that they’re now powerful enough to cut through branches up to 200mm (8″), and they can last for well over 50 cuts of thick timber and over 100 branches of various thicknesses. Draper is a well-known budget tool manufacturer, and I’ve tested many of their products over the years. Manufacturers often overstate how high you can safely prune branches and while I’m 6ft2 and with a long reach, I was unable to reach any of the stated heights, even when I was standing on my toes!I tested this pruner at a demonstration event back in 2022, and I was surprised at how well it cut through thick timbers. I'm only cutting upto 4" with mine and I think it'll be just as fast as a sthil as its not heavy or as bulky plus no petrol ! I was impressed by the build quality of this telescopic pruner, but that wasn’t a surprise as I own several garden tools by this manufacturer including a manual lawn mower, and they’ve all been trouble-free. For cutting branches up to 32mm, I rate it 9/10, but sometimes I came across thicker branches and without a saw attachment, I couldn’t cut them and had to put my ladder up and saw off them the old-fashioned way. The tool has two handles which activate the cutting blades, and I found myself using the one at the end of the pole for higher branches and the sliding handle on the shaft of the pole for the lower branches.

My Best Pick for battery-powered telescopic saw pruners is the Greenworks Telescopic Chainsaw Pruner. The one redeeming feature of this tool is the saw attachment which is great for cutting through thick branches, although expect to get tired and sore arms, I certainly did. The Gardena Starcut 410 has been used several times since and as of February 27th 2023, there are no issues to report. The battery-powered Greenworks pruner was highlighted based on its specifications and online reviews. I would't have attempted to do half the willows or other trees without it and would have had to pay a contractor instead- or risked serious injury!The extended reach makes it very suitable for cutting up to 4 metres and the pole is not too heavy or unwieldy to use. which means it won’t fit into a small shed and not everyone has a larger shed or garage for storage.

Some telescopic pruners have a saw attachment which, while it adds weight and bulk to the tool, is perfect for pruning thicker branches. The Fiskars PowerGear™ X Telescopic Tree Pruner (UPX86) features an ingenious, power-boosting mechanism for each cut and an extendable shaft up to 4 meters, with a reach up to 6 meters. The pruner is very easy to use, but I don't feel confident to force it to cut very thick branches as claimed. I would highly recommend it if you have tall, but still young enough, trees to cut or keep in shape. Powered tools like this are perfect for those with mobility issues, and we wanted to include this option in our guide.Experience easier cuts with PowerGear™ X technology 3x gear transmission, allowing for effortless and exact pruning without the need for a ladder or bending or straining knees. You will be nackered after an hour, two at the most, but that's with a saw blade on the end, we find it the fastest for pruning.
