Description

The high degree of comfort you will experience from these pruning shears / secateurs comes from the exceptional ergonomics explicit in the FELCO design. The angled cutting head safely prevents the tool slipping in your hand, while ensuring that the FELCO 8 effectively becomes a part of you - to deliver ease of use, comfort that is immediately evident, along with less likelihood of muscle fatigue early on in your pruning tasks. The comfortable feel is reinforced by the rubber shock absorbers which contribute in reducing the cutting strain on your wrists, along with a handle shape which specifically optimises the force you are able to apply to your chosen cut. The precision setting mechanism also makes it possible to adjust the cutting head as you require.
