      Comments about Bahco Pneumatic Pruner:

      I have 9 semi-dwarf apples trees and a pear tree that I have to prune each year. Basically cut one years growth off while dormant. This usually takes a couple days to complete and is a lot of work. Most of the material is pushing about 3/4 inch diameter and must be cut with loppers. This is very awkward and time consuming. This year I tried this little pneumatic pruner and it was much easier and took about 4 hours. The air fitting required is a standard ¼ inch SAE male fitting. I bought a short hose with a swivel fitting and screwed it into the pruner for better maneuverability instead of having 4 inches of fitting sticking out from the pruner. I do not like the trigger lock and I tapped in down to disable it. I also think the trigger should work easier than it does. My hands would get sore from squeezing it. If I was punning something small, like grapes I would just use a manual pruner instead. Also If the material is too thick (inch+), this will not cut it. So there is definitely a zone that this is good for. That being said, I just had this connected to a home air compressor that has a 120 psi maximum. So most of the time it was actually 100-120 psi and it seemed to do fine up to about ¾ inch material. If your air compressor goes up to 145 as recommended it might work great. I also sprayed the external moving parts with light oil occasionally to keep them lubed up.

      Comments about Bahco Pneumatic Pruner:

      We looked long and far for a pneumatic pruner that would help us with our small apple orchard. The field of pruners is virtually empty, dominated by the $500 Italian pruners that we just could not afford, or something cheap from China. One day I came upon Gempler's and these great pruners, and after some reading of reviews, we decided to purchase them. We've gone through six trees in a weekend, which used to take us 2 weeks of pruning in our spare time. My wife said it was the best [$] that we've ever spent.

        Not sure why others had trouble with fittings? Mine took a standard 1/4 inch quick connect nipple. I'm using a PowerTank Sidearm kit (CO2) for portability and it works well.

        Comments about Bahco Pneumatic Pruner:

        Not providing the appropriate air hose nipple and having uncommon threads caused me to spend half an hour at a specialty Hydraulic/pneumatic tool repair shop to get the right part. Otherwise the tool seems to work as promised. I prune standard and dwarf fruit trees and the tool works well at this task. I would buy this tool again for the cost and the support from Gemplers.
