Description

The revolving handle might not be the first feature that you will notice on these light and compact high performance shears /secateur. However, one thing is for certain, your wrists will immediately begin to feel the difference in comfort provided by the innovative design of the FELCO 17 – enhanced by rubber shock absorbers – which spares the effort you require to cut by 30%. We could highlight how the ergonomic benefits also reduce fatigue, so that you will be able to enjoy the effective reach between branches and the outstanding precision from the smaller, easily adjusted cutting head - that much longer. We are proud, with good reason, of our highly responsive design process - which is evident with this sturdy, powerful all-purpose pruner for the left hander with smaller hands. However, we are only truly happy with our efforts once you start using this FELCO tool and pay us the ultimate compliment of taking all these exceptional features for granted.
