Description

It’s easy to see the quality and ruggedness of these pruning shears at a glance. The FELCO 5’s blade and anvil blade are of high-quality steel construction, with the sort of powerful precision that can handle large branches and deliver a quick, clean cut. The distinctive tapered cutting head gives greater reach between branches to safely establish your target when pruning. You will find them particularly suitable if you have large hands and be able to undertake all types of pruning tasks, while comfortable in the knowledge that all parts are replaceable.
