The first time you try Fiskars PowerGear2 Soft grip Pruner, you'll be amazed - but it's not magic, it's gears. Fiskars patented gear technology multiplies your leverage to give you up to 3X more power on every cut. This means you can power through tough stems and branches that you wouldn't be able to cut with traditional pruners. For easy, comfortable pruning, this pruner also includes a contoured handle with a unique rolling design that fits the shape and natural motion of your hand, plus Soft grip touch points for a more comfortable, secure grip. Fiskars updated design includes modified gears and an innovative cam mechanism to optimize your cutting power in the middle of the cut where the branch is thickest and you need it most. The result is that every cut is even easier than Fiskars original Power Gear cutting tools.
