#1.Felco F-2 Classic Manual Hand Pruner
When it comes to the best felco pruners, we have to give it to the Felco F-2 because it offers the best combination of comfort, performance, durability, and price. First of all, the F-2s are incredibly comfortable in hand and probably the most comfortable Felco Pruner we have reviewed. The rubber shock absorbing cushion is just really nice and comfortable to use.
We find that the handles are angled in a way that is extremely easy to use and will give you the best possible leverage, so you get the most amount of force and exert the least amount of pressure. And while the F-2 is designed for larger hands, we tried it and asked people with smaller hands to try it and nobody really complained about anything.
#2.Felco F-6 Classic Pruner For Smaller Hands
Next, we have he Felco F-6, which is one of the best felco pruners if you have smaller hands. It is definitely a very well made pruner with top quality materials and excellent craftsmanship. What we really like about it is that it is an excellent tool for tackling small pruning work such as shrubs, grape vines or just anything a florist would do.
Overall, the pruner feels extremely light in your hands and even lighter than the F-2. It is still very flexible and agile, making it the ideal tool for quick and nimble work. The blades are also incredibly precise and sharp. They stay sharp for long periods of time and can definitely take a beating. So feel free to try to snip hard objects with it.
#3.Felco F-7 Gardening Hand Pruner
The Felco F-7 is another industry classic that we just have to recommend as some of the best felco pruners out there. It is one of the top Felco models due to its ergonomic rotating handles. These rotating handles revolv on its axis and are definitely a standout feature for the F-7s and they allow your fingers to move naturally, which in turns reduces blisters and hand fatigue.
Additionally, we really like how this unique swivel action leads to nearly 30 percent less effort than other brands out there while deliver the same amount of force. And to be perfectly honest, yes the swivel handle seemed a bit odd at first, but we definitely got used to it after a few uses and now we can’t live without it.
#4.Felco F-13 Classic Manual Pruning Shears
The Felco F-13 is another great pruner that is one of top 5 list because it can be used as a two handed pruner. It has an extra long blade handle, which allows for single and double handed use. The double handed feature is particularly useful when you are cutting thick branches and trying to get some serious power and leverage.
Good thing is the F-13 model is built super durable and we think even more durable than many of the others, to the point where adding the force of another hand doesn’t make a difference. Finally, don’t forget that you also have the option of using it one handed, but it is a little awkward given how long the handles are.
#5.Felco F11 Narrow Blade Pruner
Lastly, we have the Felco F11 Narrow Balde Pruner, which is well balanced and has a large cutting capacity. It has really narrow blades, which gives you easy access to twiggy branches. Furthermore, the handles are pretty comfortable and it properly fits in the hands of most people. There are also carefully placed shock absorbers which help reduce wrist fatigue.
Also, we think that it does a pretty good job of maintaining itself over time. As long as you put in some effort to take care of it and clean it a bit, it should last a really long time. And finally, we really like the fact that the blade is really easy to replace as the anvil blade is attached with screws instead of rivets.
