Description

It’s not easy to avoid being completely taken with the extremely lightweight construction and compact construction of the FELCO 160S pruning shears. There’s no doubt it makes them exceptionally easy to handle, and the high strength composite fibre handles offer ergonomic protection and are both sturdy and comfortable. The overall ease of use is also reflected in the simple, very stable blade adjustment system but this doesn’t neglect those fine details – such as the sap removal groove - that define the FELCO brand as much as the celebrated precise clean cut. Particularly suited for smaller sized hands, you’re sure to find them a pleasure to use for general pruning jobs in gardening or horticulture that do not require a heavy-duty specification.
