The handle design on these ratchet pruners helps to protect the hand, while the ratchet system makes cutting through thicker material much easier for the user. This is ideal for gardeners with less strength in their hands, these pruners allow you to cut through a branch in measured stages, using the ratchet.
EFFORTLESS CUTTING – The ratchet in the pruner is a clever extra mechanism to make light work of tough cuts. As you squeeze ratcheting pruning shears, they latch so you can release and squeeze again, performing the cut in easy steps rather than one go. As you cut through a branch, the ratcheting mechanism clicks and moves to the next setting, providing ever-increasing pressure as you cut.
5 TIMES THE POWER – The ratcheting mechanism’s settings multiply your hand’s power by up to 5 times, so that you don’t have to do the work – the pruning shears do it for you.
ERGONOMIC COMFORTABLE DESIGN – If you intend to prune frequently, you’ll appreciate the way that a ratchet pruner will reduce wrist strain, require less pressure to cut, and generally make the pruning experience much more enjoyable. If you do a lot of pruning, this can make a huge difference in hand fatigue. Ideal if you are already starting out at a disadvantage with carpal tunnel or arthritis, or have smaller hands.
