I will use the tool mostly for fruit trees and certain other things. But the huge arbor I shared a fraction of in the image above is something where the electric pruner has an extra advantage. I got on top and needed to maintain safe position and balance. That meant reaching for certain cuts where I couldn't hand hold and cut with Felco 2's in a way that allows all my hand strength. But with the electric tool, if I can manage to get the blade in a decent cutting position, as long as the trigger can be squeezed, 100% of its power is still available for the cut. This image is a drop in the bucket, merely using Stihl extended shears to drop some mass on the skirt. 90% of the pruning was done from the top side. Google' Earth's ruler and scale shows the entire arbor to be 370 feet long. I was surprised to learn that it's all 4 x Port Orford cedar.
