Cutting & Pruning Shears
Cutting and pruning shears feature large blades at the end of double handles. Their long blades make them ideal for cutting grass from spaces that you can't reach with a mower or a trimmer.
These shears help to increase the overall health of your lawn and garden by removing invasive plants that steal nutrients and sunlight from your beautiful flowers or other plants. A variety of garden pruning shears, often just called pruners, complement your large shear by performing the delicate cuts that these shears are too big to make. Combine these two tools and you have what you need to protect your favorite plants.
Large shears with smaller, curved blades, known as bypass pruning shears or loppers, cut off medium-sized branches from trees. Typical straight-bladed shears can do this, but they only put cutting power on two small points of the branch at a time, rather than the larger area that a bypass blade offers. Use regular shears to remove ivy or other nuisance species from your tree trunk and tree-pruning shears to take off sick or dead limbs.
Several features make your job easier. Gear-assisted cutting and pruning shears direct more of your force into the cut, so you spend less energy for the same results. Ergonomic handles reduce the strain on your hands and wrists to keep you working longer. If you want to reduce the time spent sharpening, hardened blades hold their edge longer than softer metal.
Cutting and pruning shears are efficient tools for getting rid of unwanted foliage. They're durable and many of these landscaping tools include lifetime warranty protection to ensure long working life.
