QUESTION: How do I know what accessories to use with the pole pruner heads? ANSWER: Click on the link below to Pole Pruners and Their Components for a spreadsheet on which poles and adaptors go on which head.
Sharp blade cuts branches over 1 inch diameter (at least softwoods). Saw quickly cuts bigger branches. Good reach using the two poles. Should last a long time, but may be overkill for light homeowner use.

I am not as young as I used to be so pruning my fruit trees is more difficult than it has been. The A. M. Leonard pole pruner allows me to stand on the ground and prune the trees. I used to use a ladder. I have 36 fruit and nut trees and am able to complete the job in a day or two without hurrying. I tried not pruning them the year before I bought the pruner and production decreased significantly on just about everything. The pole pruner is worth the money.
