Different secateurs are built for different jobs. The Ratchet Pruner from Pinebush Home & Garden is ready for jobs calling on big muscle. The ratchet action begins as the first squeeze of the lightweight aluminum handle forces the blade into the branch. As it relaxes, it resets, offering maximum force and pushing the blade deeper into the cut. So for thicker branches, harder wood, or even lighter jobs, it's going to get the job done every time. This sharp, hard-working pruner is built to last, measuring 20.5cm (8") long. It comes with a manufacturer's lifetime warranty, and it makes a great gift for gardeners.
