I sub out the tall tree work to keep my worker comp down and eliminate the need to carry the long trailers.
my pruning sticks are many years old and as such no store will take them back. Fiskars sends you the parts so that you can fix it yourself, I have had to do it twice. No reciept required and they were very easy to deal with. I also have a echo power pruner but many times that just way to much for the job and the prune stick is quicker and much easier on the arms.
