    Looking at buying another set of hand pruners, what are the best quality hand pruners for commercial work that you recommend?

    I have used and bought for my guys everything from the cheapest $7 HD Bronco pruners to the $90 Felco with the ergonomic rotating handle and different spring selections sized for your hand. The guys always come back to the 3/4 " cut Corona here is a link http://www.gemplers.com/product/C316/Corona-Commercial-grade-Pruner Bulletproof.

    I got a pruner stihl for 13 bucks earlier this year after breaking my 3rd set of $hity pruners, and all I can say is WOW, these are the best pruners ever and are worth it by far

    felco in my opinion is the best.....felco classic #2....will never buy anything different. I also carry the #13 pruner/lopper and #20...short handed lopper. I use these every single day. I will probably get the big loppers before its said and done. Nothing compares to them. I have had the Corona and personally dislike them. The piece that holds the pruners closed always breaks and gets in the way as well.

    I use Corona and for the price can't complain. The lock does get a little annoying but at least I'm not having to close the blades all the time. They make good tree saws also. Say, $30-40 for the pruners though? Not a bad deal.

    Don't discount Fiskars brand pruners, shears, and loppers. They are all excellent and come with lifetime warranties.

    I don't know if commercial use is supposed to be covered but I have not had to purchase another set since buying these. When they break, I take the back to HD or Lowes and get a brand new set to replace the one that broke.
