Perfectly balanced for ease of use and accuracy, these poles are light and maneuverable and provide sharp and accurate precision pruning at heights that would otherwise require a ladder. 3 blade options are available: the 180 (razor edge) head for general pruning, the 160 (cut and hold) head for dead-heading, manicuring, and harvesting, and the 190 (super trimmer) head is for shearing and shaping (e.g. shaping Christmas Trees). The die-cast aluminum tilt neck allows the head to tilt +/- 30 degrees. A dial nut securely locks the desired angle into place. The die-cast aluminum handle is ergonomically designed for continued use and has a non-slip coating. A single operation lever enables simple telescoping operation.

A few points not spelled out in the description:
Most important is that this pruner comes with a 10" saw attachment. It uses a see and a slot to attach below the pruning head (see photo). Apparently it is important you don't remove the screw closest to the handle, but this is smartly a Torx bolt to differentiate it.
Second, you can remove the red holding brackets to increase the cutting capacity. The 160 head is the same as the 180 head with the addition of the holding pads.
A minor point, the lock has a secondary position that can be used to only open the blades partially. Useful for when making many quick small cuts.
Both the blade set and the saw come with plastic protective covers, though the saw's only covers the teeth.
The handle can be rotated 360 degrees around the shaft if the retaining screw in the rotation slot is removed. This will allow you to adjust the actuation rod to account for rod stretch or misalignment. It don't look like there is a whole lot of adjustment though.
The best tool of its type out there that I've tried, with the addition of a free pole saw attachment makes it a winner. I would also recommend the longer 6-10 ft telescoping pole vs. The 4-7 ft pole. It can be slightly uncomfortable if you have to stand close and prune low, but the added reach is significant and far outweighs any clumsiness at close range.
One more point - the blades are stainless steel, which I don't think is mentioned anywhere. I actually expected carbon steel, but in this application stainless is much better since the holders can trap debris between them and the blade.
Just a tip tho, I mistakenly thought it malfunctioned when suddenly it "locked" in the hallf-closed position. It turned out that I accidentally tripped the lock switch.
