Fiskars Power-Lever 25-inch Easy Reach Pruner
A recent right shoulder injury made me revisit my pruning tools. I need pruners and loppers that are light, powerful, and usable with one hand. Turns out Fiskars Power-Lever 25-inch Easy Reach Pruner fits the bill as a versatile pruner/lopper hybrid. With its two-foot length, 1/2 inch cutting capacity, and easy squeeze mechanism, I could use it in my weak left hand to prune crepe myrtle and roses. Cost is about $35.
