Here are some of the features to be considered for buying tools that will help you take care of your cutting needs.
Whatever the diameter of the branch you need to cut, your tool must be able to cut it easily without requiring too much effort on your part. There is a great variety of scissors, pruners and loppers designed especially for different branch diameters
For big or hard-to-reach branches saws and trimmers do the job quickly and simply. Shears are perfect for edging the grass along flowerbeds and pruning your hedges.
Anvil or Bypass model?
Anvil models are strong enough not to bend or twist under pressure. Particularly recommended for cutting dead wood, which tends to be quite hard.
Bypass models work just like scissors, allowing the user to cut stems cleanly without crushing them, thus avoiding disease development. The serrated bypass blade holds the stem in place.
Some hedge shears are equipped with a tension knob that adjusts to the user's strength and reduces fatigue during extended use.
Available on some cutting tools, the shock-absorbing rubber bumper absorbs the impact of cutting and reduces hand and arm fatigue.
It allows the user to adjust the blade-cutting angle. Compared to conventional shears, the ratchet helps to significantly reduce the amount of effort expended while increasing the cutting pressure applied.
