Description

These larger size FELCO 160L pruning shears are the ideal choice if you are the proud owner of large hands and require a reliable tool to do all those general pruning jobs in your garden without a heavy-duty specification. High-strength, exceptionally lightweight composite fibreglass handles and a simple yet very stable blade adjustment system, combine with ergonomic hand and wrist protection to make them a joy to use. We could highlight the efficient sap groove, the enviable dexterity they allow and the hardened steel blades, but as you finally become the equally proud owner of a tool that specifically suits your personal physical and pruning requirements, you will probably want to just get on with the job.
