Popular Mechanics magazine put three top pruners through their paces, going far beyond what you would normally expect from a bypass pruner. They chopped everything from celery to rope and even chicken wire. Our bypass pruner clearly rose to the top in 2 out of 3 categories tested, with the sharpest blades and the most precise cuts.

Designed for all-around use, the chrome-plated blades resist rust, corrosion, and sap for easy cleaning and keep a keen edge. Anvil blade is riveted to the forged aluminum handles for extra strength. Has a pivot-locking mechanism, and solid forged handles with anti-slip grips. Vinyl coated handles. 8.5 inches overall length. Wt 10 oz. Lifetime warranty.

Great tool

2011-06-30

Matches up well with any pruners I've used, but at less than half the price.


from VA

Crew preferred Felco

2011-06-30

We have used Felco for many year, but based on the claims made by A.M. Leonard, and the lower price, we decided to give the Leonard pruners a try. My crew didn't prefer them - felt that the blades were not as tough or sharp. We returned them and purchased Felcos instead.

Leonard Traditional Pruner broke within 2 months

2011-06-27

Although this pruner looks much like the Felco pruners, it is much more flimsy, and with routine, appropriate use it completely fell apart within 2 months of purchase. I have several Felco pruners that have survived multiple years of use. My complaint about this pruner was handled well by the Gardeners Edge staff.

Good Quality Pruner

2011-06-27

I bought 2 pairs of these pruners to use on my Christmas tree farm. They have seen some heavy use and show no wear at all, they keep a sharp edge and dont fatigue your hands at all. It is easy to take the sap off them by letting the tips sit in rubbing alcohol overnight.


from NY

don't waste your time buying this pruner.

2011-06-27

I normally always for over 20 years buy Felco #2. I figured give this pruned a try. I handed off to my helper on day one. First the tension spring kept dropping out. Then one of the screws dropped out during the day, of course it got lost in mulch to never be found again. So this brand new pruner made it till about 2:30 on the first day. I then wasted time doing the return and upgraded the $14.00 to the classic felco two.

Great Hand Pruner

2011-06-27

Great pruner for the cost. Good smooth cut and very sharp blades With over thirty years experience in the green industry I can highly recommend the AML hand pruner.


from CO

Awesome, price is even better

2011-06-27

I've been using allot of different name brands for hand pruners and let me assure you these work just as good or even better they sharpen easy and the price is a great value especially in these days. thank you for a great product.


from IL

Great pruner for the novice

2011-06-27

I love this pruner. For a novice in gardening, it is easy to use. I've already trimmed several bushes; and the neighbors want me to do theirs. I learned about this wonderful product from the gardening pro at Goeberts farm. I am not disappointed.


from VA

trouble with lock

2011-06-27

These work fine... I often buy cheap pruners and never really dislike any, but I find the lock on these to be horrible. It swings forward and locks the blades closed at the normal angle for clipping, and has to be pushed back with every clip. At the same time, it doesn't have clearance over the orange plastic on the handle so it's already nicked and marred that up. I've tried tightening them, but then the clearance is Less, and loosened it still has the swing forward problem. I guess mine are just defective, but the design seems to lend itself to this problem.

Bypass pruner

2011-06-27

I bought these pruners because I needed some more for my crew and I have personally used these in the past and liked them.


from NJ

Good overall Pruning shear

2011-06-27

Like handle, but blades seem to need sharpening more often then the more expensive shears.


from OH

Gift pruners

2011-06-27

I gave these pruners as Christmas gifts, so this Spring I received the REAL thanks. The daughter with smaller hands liked the size, weight and easy cut. The others remarked how much better they were than their "box store" buys. I like the handle color because it is easier to find when I lay it down somewhere when trimming.


from RI

Have to have good tools

2011-06-27

My pruning sheers have not failed me yet. I use them all the time and keep them oiled and fine tuned. Finally had to sharpen them this week after months of heavy use. I am in my third year of landscaping and am slowly adding the right tools to my truck. These were cost effective and work very well. Nothing in life is perfect, so I did not rate them at 5.


from OH

Best in the Industry

2011-06-27

I have been in the green industry for over 20 years and have used many different types of bypass pruners. This bypass pruner is by far the best! This pruner does not bind up,very easy to use and less expensive. I would recommend this product to anyone.

#1286 pruners

2011-06-27

Found it to easy to use, lasting quality, and easy to get replacement parts.


from MA

Awesome

2011-03-24

Why pay for Felcos when these pruners will do the trick. Plus they are that beautiful orange color. I can't recommend them enough.


from FL

pruner

2011-02-04

I have been in the Horticulture field for 37 years and few products actually wow me. This one did and I personally put it throught the paces. It worked smooth, cut clean, didn't bind up and cut through 3/4 inch branches. The cost is the second best thing, like the icing on the cake. In the future my whole team will be using them.


from CO

Leonard ByPass Pruner

2011-01-30

These pruners are excellent. The blades are extra sharp and hold their edge well. This is an excellent buy with a lifetime warranty...


from OR

As good as the much more pricey Felco

2011-01-29

Great hand pruner, and much more economical than the Felco. Adjustable tension to fit your hand. Very comfortable to use.


from NY

Traditional Pruner is Economical, Durable and Does the Job

2011-01-29

There are more expensive pruners, but they don't work that much better than other, less expensive pruners, at least not enough so to justify the cost difference, especially when considering that inevitably pruners get lost. Therefore, I find using the AML pruners, which are durable and functional, to be a more economical strategy.


from MA

Fantastic pruner, fantastic price.

2011-01-28

I have been landscaping since 1989 and have used many brands of pruners but usually prefer Felco. This pruner is of excellent quality and price. I can buy two pairs of these for almost the price of one Felco and the quality is great.


from PA

Sharp, comfortable, great tool for the price!

2011-01-25

What I like most about these pruners is the price. They function just as effectively as their overpriced counterparts and feel extremely comfortable.


from MD

Standard Hand Pruner

2011-01-25

A quality made hand pruner with 1 inch cutting capacity. I like the fact that you can remove the cutting blades easily to sharpen or replace blades.


from GA

very impressive

2010-09-19

I was not sure about these. I have had them in full rotation (8 hrs a day / 5 dayas a week) for 3 weeks and they have proven themself to me. No need to buy the 58.00 fancy pants brand. These are just as good...
