    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!

    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.

    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 ... read more 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.

    Excellent for all size hands
    I purchased these shears about two years ago and have used them on a regular basis. I am 6'2" with size XXL hands, and these fit me just as well as my wife, they are compact and feel like they are perfect for any size hands. I got the smaller size to be easier to maneuver around plants from top to bottom. These feel like they slice right through stems with ease, and I have yet to sharpen them. After each use, I wash them off with soap and water to avoid plant disease problems, leave them open to ... read more dry and oil them only once every couple of uses... very low maintenance and shows no wear after years of uses. I have yet to sharpen them. These are the last pair of shears I will ever buy, and recommend them to anyone. Very, very high quality, only gripe from anyone would be the price.... but you get what you pay for..... buy it once and never buy another pair. I will be sending a pair to a relative as a gift.

    Lasts longer on the job than the day is long...quality plus
    Best hand shears I have found. I purchased one of each size more for the job I am doing and not for my hand size. One piece of advice, purchase the black handle models. My opinion is that the orange handle models available at some Stihl outlets do not feel as well made. I hope they do not discontinue the former.

    best hand-held pruner available anywhere
    I can't praise Stihl's hand-held pruner enough. It's design is simple, extremely workable, light, and efficient. I LOVE using my Stihl pruner. I've used other pruners in the distant past but Stihl's pruner is the best by far. It is so good it really has no competitors. The same goes for their chainsaws. Outstanding quality.

    Good As it gets
    I bought these and was so impressed I bought another pair and pp80. Over the red handled hand pruners claiming to be best and more expensive. Use non stop hold an edge.

    Best set of pruners I've ever owned!
    I am not one that likes to write reviews, but this product made me want to tell everyone about it. I live on a 13 acre organic farm and have several hundred Green Ash trees (1-10 yr old) along with Red Twig Dogwood, Buckthorn, Hawthorne, Sugar Maple, Cherry, etc. I have gone through several pruners in the past trying to keep the property under control, and all of them have failed me after a few uses. I finally decided to give Stihl a try, and I wish I had started with them in the first place! ... read more The quality and reliability of these pruners is out of this world! The other pruners that I had would slightly bend and dull very quickly when I would prune limbs over 1/2" in diameter. The Stihl PP40 pruners not only cut through large 1-1/2" limbs, but leave a nice clean cut so that the tree can heal properly! I have used these on well over 200 trees and bushes and they still are as sharp as the day I bought them. I not only prune limbs off of the trees, but also cut each of the limbs into a mulch as I go. I honestly am totally amazed at how well these pruners work and how sharp the blade stays after so many uses! If you want a GREAT pair of pruners, like none you've ever used before, then these are for you!!

    Super pruners
    I love these pruners. I like them more than my name brand pruners. They have held up well. I like they way you squeeze the pruner to open the blades. They are indestructible and so easy to use. I have two pairs I like them so much, a smaller and these.

    Great little snips
    Use these snips everyday during pruning season. Underpowered for larger stems but perfect for younger water saps.

    These are the best.
    These are so good I’m going to buy a couple more pair to hand down to my boys. I have an apple orchard of about 120 trees and these have worked flawlessly year after year. And the chrome blade is still razor sharp after literally 10’s of thousands of cuts. I couldn’t be more happy with this tool. It stays in the house in the gun cabinet. Wash the sap and oil with some gun oil and they look brand new again. Thankyou stihl. It’s satisfying to be able to purchase quality that lasts.

    PP80 Cadillac pruner
    Best pruner I've used to date. Fits my hands, sharp and cuts like butter. Definitely a wise investment.

    Hands Down the Best Pruner Around
    I manage wine grape vineyards and over the years have worked with most all major pruner brands. Without a doubt, the PP80 is the best pruner I've laid my hands on to date. It fits my large hands comfortably, and cuts through canes and suckers like butter... vine after vine, after vine. The quick-release blade lock puts a smile on my face every time I used it. I can't think of anything I would change on this pruner. Definitely worth the extra cost.
