Find a Specific Product: Hand Tools

PP 70

A nearly indestructible hand pruner that’s strong enough for twigs up to .75”, yet precise enough for fine pruning tasks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Very nice. Great leverage and action. Light and strong. We have had 3 pairs. Sort of difficult to buy as local dealers don't all carry the hand tools. May 7, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best hand pruner I've used for pruning apple trees I have a 100 tree apple orchard that I manage. Annual pruning takes a sizeable amount of time. My old Stanley pruners caused hand pain and finger fatigue. The Felco pruners that I tried kept slipping out of my hand as they seemed to be end-heavy. Stihl's PP70 pruners are the best by far. No fatigue or hand pain after hours of pruning. Better still, they seem to be an extension of the hand and are easily maneuvered around and between branches when pruning. I oil the blade and the pivot point after each day of pruning.. A touch up sharpening with the diamond stone is needed once or twice during the season. The price is a tad high but you get what you pay for. I've purchased a second set to have as a spare. On the down side, I've busted the spring twice due to fatigue, but Stihl has replaced it both times without question under their lifetime warranty. March 26, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Complete junk I cut through a live branch that was probably .6 inches thick, and a large piece of the blade chipped off. I returned them the next day and got my money back. Next time I'll buy Felcos. February 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by PP 70 This hand pruner is the best I have ever used, let alone held! The locking feature is easy to unlock but is very secure when not in use. The price may scare some homeowners/landscapers away, but the quality of the blades are amazing and can be removed to be sharpened, unlike many professional hand pruners out there. Amazing hand pruner for all jobs, from cutting flowers to trimming small branches! I do recommend the hand pruner leather sheath for easy transport! December 8, 2013
