Gilmour 418Tcs Telescoping Pole Pruner

Best for: Limbs up to 10 inches in diameter and up to 20 feet high.

The verdict: A saw-and-lopper combo head on the end of a telescoping fiberglass pole lets you elevate your pruning. When extended to its full 18 feet, the pole flexes quite a bit and can tire your arms. But once the blade lands where you want and establishes a kerf, it cuts like a demon.

Fine print: 16-inch blade, 1 1/4-inch lopping capacity.

Weight: 9.2 pounds

Price: $67;
