Comments from other reviewers re the locking mechanism are unfortunately on target. The slipping defeats efforts to apply the necessary force to a saw cut -- and even trying to tighten down with big pliers (why should we have to??) will not solve the problem. Sadly, the bad news does not end there. The lopper mechanism employs a bicycle-style chain at the businss end, which would at first glance seem to be a fine idea (robust strength, and no rope chafe to be concerned about). BUT, inexcusably poor engineering of the guides through which the chain runs means that the chain itself can all too easily twist, bind, kink, and jam under load. So the pruning session comes to a complete halt, and we have to make a trip back to the barn for dismantling and clearing of the mechanism, on the workbench. This is designer error, not operator error. After having the same thing happen three and four times a day in regular use, we replaced the chain with spectra line, and thus solved the problem. Buyer beware, and what a shame that there are few other choices in the current marketplace. This could and should be a much better product.

I have owned another Corona pole pruner for many years and purchased this one for the extra few feet - anything to help me reach a slightly higher branch without climbing a ladder is a safety feature. This model has allowed me to reach all that I can reasonably ask for, as I have used longer, commercial pole pruners (up to 21 feet) and they get too unwieldy to conveniently use.

What I really like about this model is that the base of saw blade is attached with a through-bolt; on some of the other Corona models it is attached with a screw threaded into a tapped hole in the alloy pruner head. This stripped out on me after many years of use, and though I was able to re-tap it with a larger screw, the through-bolt design is more durable.

I also really like the double pulley design which gives more mechanical advantage than on my older model, and the quality of the head and saw in general. I have experienced some of the slippage problem with the telescoping poles, but not at full extension.

I have also experienced some jamming of the bicycle chain if the rope gets on the wrong side of the pulley. This is easy to do when threading the saw head through branches to reach a specific spot. I would be just as happy to have all rope, and may replace this if it becomes annoying.

Oh yeah, it's really long, even when 'collapsed'; 8 feet 9 inches with saw blade attached, so make sure that you have a spot tall enough or long enough to store it.

The telescoping plastic locking mechanism is of the compression type and does not lock adequately during aggressive sawing strokes. The pole extends instead of completing the down sawing stroke. On the plus side the 13" blade cuts with ease and stays sharp. I've had the same blade after 4 years of use with only the spring finally giving out. Replacement parts are available locally and at on line retailers. With a better locking mechanism I would rate 5 stars.

I bought this Pro model tree pruner because I was tired of borrowing one from my neighbor. Now that I have the Pro model, he will be coming to my house. The Pro Pruner can reach the limbs that other models cannot and easily take out branches and limbs with either the saw or chain drive snip. The saw has teeth that are sharpened on three sides and made for easy cutting of 4 inch limbs. And, the two foot long foam rubber cushion on the handle makes gripping very easy. A must have for anyone with trees.

The lopping function of this compound tool works reasonably well, but only on relatively thin limbs--up to about 1 1/4 inches. The saw is a different matter. The blade is beautiful--a japanese pull stroke saw which is very sharp. The problem is in the telescoping pole mechanism. The action of sawing loosens the locking mechanism on the pole, no matter how hard one tries to tighten it. And one wouldn't dare use a wrench because the mechanism is plastic. So it's almost impossible to get enough torque for sawing high up when the pole is continually lengthening itself!

I purchased this item after reading lots of reviews, going into various hardware stores and retail stores and looking at the ones that they had in stock. I looked at the Corona pruner that was rope-driven and chose the chain drive over that because I've had rope-drives fail. Some folks have complained about the chain binding and that was a concern. The last thing I wanted was to have to work harder on the tool than on the tree. I'm not the strongest fella (6'2 182lbs, 50 years old) and I needed a little more cutting power with minimized effort.

I waited to use this item, as many folks tend to write reviews after only a couple uses of a product. When I read a review, I always look for the part where they say how long they have owned and used the product. Most things are pretty good at the start of ownership, but time always has a way of revealing shortcomings. I'm not a rich fellow and needed something that would last. I also considered the number of reviews of the product, as less than ten reviews gives one little insight into quality and longevity.

I wanted the most reach I could get and at 6'2" tall (or at 4'5" tall for that matter), the longer reach you get out of a product like this, the more work you can do and avoid having to get out the ladder and risk falling off the darned thing while you're trying to cut a branch. Corona's marketing team could have done a LOT better job marketing their products, by providing more photos. I also went to their website, hoping to get more views of their products, but came up rather disappointed in that area. I added my own photos for you in the listing page here.

This tree pruner was ordered from Amazon. I price-shopped everywhere I could and found it to be the best price.
