Fixed handle ergonomic pruner. Ergonomic design in a modular system that lets you build a pruner that fits perfectly into your hand.

PXR TYPE
Rotating handle ergonomic pruner. Same head and palm handle as the PX, but with a comfortable, elastomer coated rotating handle. PXR feels like part of your hand and cuts with optimal accuracy and ease.

ERGONOMIC PRUNER'S MAIN FEATURES:

SHAPE OF HANDLES
Flowing shape of the handles. They spread the load more evenly and concentrate pressure points away from sensitive zones and nerves centres.Bahco / Sandvik Pruners Parts

 

 



CHOICE OF CUTTING HEAD
By choosing the size of the cutting head, you get 

the right capacity of to be cut adapted to the task to be performed. It is advisable to use a small cutting head to protect against strains.

ELASTOMER COATING ON THE UPPER HANDLE Bahco / Sandvik Pruners Profile View
This soft material gives a better grip and spreads pressure over a larger surface. Moreover, you will need less effort to hold the tool all day long.

CHOICE OF SPRING
Personalize your ergonomic pruner by choosing the spring strength that best fits your needs. A softer return spring helps reduce fatigue.

HAND MEASURING SYSTEM
Thanks to the different handle sizes available, it is the tool that is really adapting to the hand.

I have a pair of PX pruners. I had mine built with a small handle, medium spring and a large head. This is truly the future of pruners.

These pruners will not be available until Fall 2001. Donít buy another pruner until you can get one of these.    Bruce
