      Our trees are on the side of a hill making a ladder risky. This tool reduces the need to use a ladder therefore reducing possible injury from falling or ladder slipping.

              Comments about ARS Aluminum Telescoping Pruning Shears-- Bypass:

              Use this to cut small growth around a bike trail. Couple of points regarding discription: head does pivot, but only about 20 degrees, not much different then when straight; telescoping has only a single setting. I found when pivoting head the handle refused to automatically return to open after a cut and I had to manually open the handles for the next cut. With head straight this did not happen. Overall doesn't feel like a really qualty piece of equipment.
