      Comments about VILLAGE BLACKSMITH Corona® Tree Pruner (TP6870):

      I've had this pruner for a long time, and it generally does the job. BUT, as another user mentioned above, the extension locking mechanism is terrible. Either the pole slips, or if you tighten it enough to hold the extension, the nut will be jammed.

      Corona should fix this lame feature. This is supposed to be a high quality trimmer, but I wouldn't recommend this tool.

      Comments about VILLAGE BLACKSMITH Corona® Tree Pruner (TP6870):

      This Tree saw does a great job cutting lower to Mid tree branches. The blade is sharp and durable.

      The only con being the pole can be wobbly when fully extended and more care is needed when using it at full extension.

        Comments about VILLAGE BLACKSMITH Corona® Tree Pruner (TP6870):

        After checking many styles and brands, this own fits the bill for using at home or a friend every so often. Used it today and overall very happy. Used at least a two cut or three cut when taking down branches and had no issues. Stop your first cuts when the branch starts to sag (this single or second cut is before you do your final cut to actually separate the branch from the tree). The first cut or two, bottom one , then top one help give the branch somewhere to sag so your final cut doesn't get bound up. Again, when the branch starts to sag is when I stopped. When I didn't, the blade got pinched/stuck. Use the force of gravity on the pull and be patient. It cuts very well...even at full extension(again, need to be patient). Really need to screw the collar hard to keep the pole from extending out. Thinking of trying a oil filter strap wrench. Usually happened when I went past the sag point on the 1st or second cut.
        There is some vibration when you use this so you may need to check the nuts every so often and re-tighten. Or consider using a medium thread locker. Or you can go with getting a nylon lock nut (5/16-18)for the bigger fastener (that's how I went). The other nut is a 10-32 and the bolt is a 3/4- 10/32 screw and I added some medium thread locker to this one. The more patient I was, the better it went over all. The pruning side of it worked very well. Where a helmet!

        Comments about VILLAGE BLACKSMITH Corona® Tree Pruner (TP6870):

        No regrets, gets job done. The only con is you have to loop cord through handle and I still can't get it right, so it makes it difficult with branches that require you to really pull. There were no instructions to loop the cord, so we winged it.

          I'm an "OLDER" lady with a big yard and lots of trees. Borrowed this one from a friend, and it's great. I had been standing on my tippy toes with a small trimmer and never get the upper branches (+ 8-15 ft) that were hanging over my neighbors fence. Now I can stand on my balcony to get the very tops, and improve my view of the valley below and the neighbors' as well.

            • Cuts pencil-size branches

            Comments about VILLAGE BLACKSMITH Corona® Tree Pruner (TP6870):

            This is a terrible product. The upper handle is supposed to extend, and be secured in that position by a turn of the collar on the lower part of the handle. This will not stay secured. Therefore, it shortens again instantly. Also, you can't wiggle the saw or clipper side to side, or get it out when it's stuck, because the handle slips so you have no leverage.

            The clipper only cuts branches to 1/4 inch. The saw bends and is flimsy.

            We've put our backs out more than once trying to use this. For the money, you'd think they'd use a better design. Don't buy.

              I was a little concerned after reading a few negative reviews but decided to try it anyway. I am so glad I did. I found it a dream to use. It did a bang up job trimming my trees and I never used a pruner before in my life.
              Everything worked as advertised and I was pleasently surprised with the ease in which it cut thru the branches. I would highly recommend this product to a friend.

              Too Heavy

              • Larger Branches

              Comments about VILLAGE BLACKSMITH Corona® Tree Pruner (TP6870):

              I use this product to trim damaged branches, branches that interfere with the tractor while cutting grass, & branches that encroach the parameter of the house. The big advantage is also the big disadvantage which is the heavy weight. The weight is beneficial while cutting limbs because the weight rests on the limb while sawing limbs with the very sharp saw. No downward pressure is required. However, clipping branches when the pole is extended is very difficult and tiresome. When the pole is extended, it is very difficult to balance & get the required leverage to pull the cord. I recommend that clipping high branches with the extended pole is best performed by two men - one holding the pole while the 2nd man stands behind & pulls the cord.
