Product Description

Product Description

The Felco F-2 Classic Manual Hand Pruner has a comfortable, light, sturdy handle made of forged aluminum with a limited lifetime guarantee. The blade is made of high-quality hardened steel, which allows clean, precise cuts. The sap groove prevents the blade sticking when cutting "sappy" wood. It saves time and makes pruning easier by removing sap and debris after each cut. The Felco Classic Pruner is easily adjustable. Hand and wrist protection and optimization of the force exerted are provided by the angled head, the ideal shape of the handles, and the cushion-shock absorber / non-slip coating.


These classic Felco pruners set the standard by which all others are judged. The choice of landscape professionals, nursery workers, and savvy gardeners around the globe; this exceptionally well-made tool features a design that's been unchanged for more than 50 years. The anvil blade has a deep sap groove to prevent sticking. A Swiss, precision-made cutting blade with soft wire cutter is replaceable for maximum return on investment. An easily-adjusted bolt and nut allow users to customize blade alignment for more efficient operation. A rubber cushion with shock absorbers pads blades where they come together to reduce impact and strain on wrists. Strong, light, forged-aluminum alloy handles have a red, plastic coating that's molded for comfort (and makes pruners easier to spot in the garden). A non-corroding spring mechanism is covered with a metal sheath to protect from moisture.

Ideal for trimming rose bushes and woody perennials, the Felco Original's smooth, soft action, ergonomic comfort, and exceptional durability put it in a class of its own. It's covered by a one-year warranty. However, with proper care, these pruners will last a lifetime. --Mary Park

Ever since I got my first Felco pruner, I will not even consider buying any other brand. Not only do they work better than any other brand, they are simple to take apart and clean and replace worn parts. They are even relatively simple to sharpen, although it takes a slightly different touch than your pocket knife or chef's knife.

The bottom line is that they work really, really well for years, even without sharpening. Their scissors action is much better than the anvil style. This F-2 model is the most general purpose design and I use it on virtually everything.

I will suggest that if, like me, you have relatively small hands, the smaller F-6 model is slightly more comfortable and easier to use for most work. I have both and use the F-6 for heavy duty end of the year pruning and the F-2 throughout the summer for average pruning jobs.

I have a couple of rules about tools that I've developed for myself, I'll share one here, don't buy crap. Most expensive doesn't equate best, but do your homework and buy good quality, it will cost you less in the long run.

A few years ago I bought a pair of corona "professional" pruners after having borrowed my brother-in-laws felco #2's. I used them for a couple of cuts and couldn't stand them... so I took them back, which I really don't like to do much but they just weren't what they were represented to be by the salesman. Which is as good as Felco pruners. (Corona makes other good products I'm especially fond of their lopers.) Then I went to another store (before I grew so fond of amazon) and bought some of these. I LOVE THEM. I can't say that enough so just in case you missed it, I LOVE THEM. For the last few years I've used them every year for a good number of trees, shrubs and bushes. They are still sharp, I haven't even had to sharpen them. They cut like the day I bought them. They are so smooth and feel so nice in your hand compared to any of the others I've used. (When I was young and dumb I worked landscaping for a while, the boss had a set of these, but we got stuck using whatever else, now I know why!)

If you want the best hand pruners that will last you at least twice as long, I think you've found the right pair.

Ok, I am an ex foreman arborist, now a stay at home dad. You will not find any better pruners. I had bought some cheap $5 pruners from HD and the things literally fell apart with the first use. When i was trimming trees I used these same pruners for about 3 years straight and they are AWESOME! If your reading this then you probably don't need my advice on buying Felcos, your just trying to pic a model. The #f-2's are the standard pruner that my old job, Davey Tree, gave to its arborists. They work great and fit the hand perfect. I would suggest this model unless you've tried others and know what you want. Good Luck and happy Pruning!

Like most, I hesitated before spending this much on a pruner. Over time, however, I've tossed away so many cheaper models that, in retrospect I would have been better off financially and less frustrated had I bought the Felco to begin with.

The test of a pruner is in its cut. These cut through fairly heavy branches quite easily and without spreading the blades and jamming, which is what ALL the cheaper pruners do. The second consideration is comfort. Felco deals with that by offering the same basic pruner in several models, including one for smaller hands. I find this model comfortable and I wear a medium men's glove. I do wear gloves when pruning, by the way. Anyone who does not, regardless of the pruner make or model, is inviting blisters!

These pruners will rust. There are as many rust-preventive products on the market as leaves on your trees, but what you really want for outdoor tools is a non-drying product. I use Fluid Film, which is lanolin-based. Rust Prevention: Fluid Film Spray 11.75 oz.

Take care of these and you will have them for a long time. Mine are on their 4th season and still cut almost like new with the original blades. They get wiped down, sprayed down, and put away at the end of each day's use.

Felco F-2: the two stands for "think twice" before you click on add-to-cart. This was the first Felco pruner that I purchased, but I rarely use it anymore. I'm hoping to convince you that this may not be the best choice despite the large number of published reviews.

I'm a Felco man myself because I believe that they make a quality product. Now, there are some who claim that their Felco pruner sticks in the closed position from sap after only a few cuts. This was true of mine until I learned how to properly adjust the tension on the nut. Some Felco models come from the factory with their nuts too tight, and therefore they require adjustment. This is neither difficult nor time-consuming. Most people should have the common sense to be able to perform this for themselves, although there are YouTube videos pertaining to the subject. Second, I have never experienced rusting, as some critics have claimed. Felco 980 Lubricant Spray is designed to protect against corrosion. My pruners live in a garage tool chest during the winter time, and this spray provides adequate protection from the cold Michigan winter weather. As of the date of this review, Amazon sells this spray under the name "Felco Lubricant Spray."

I have purchased several Felcos, including pruners #2, #6, #13, and lopper #22 (sold by Amazon under the name "Felco 30 in. Bypass Lopper"). The #2 pruner was my first Felco purchase. It is the standard equipment of all the arborists, tree crew workers and landscapers that have done work on my property. The large landscaping warehouse that services many landscapers in my area carries the #2 model prominently displayed for sale. So, I purchased one primarily to care for eighteen blue spruce trees planted along our properly line in 2008.
