    Can anyone comment on this vs the powergear2?
    https://www.bunnings.com.au/fiskars-powergear2-ultrablade-he...

    Is a wavy blade a positive thing?
    Any idea which pruner the one in the set is compared to their normal range?

    • Bump - I was about to buy that item as well because it is also on sale for $29.

      But with the added pruner on this bundled item, want the comparison before choosing!

      Personally I prefer the power gear as it can cut thicker stuff with less effort because it creates more force. A simple design feature that makes a huge difference. If you trim really small twigs frequently the wavy blade might be better as the design means small twigs are less likely to slip from the shears. But I usually only prune my hedges 2-3 times a year and I find the force keeps the material I want to cut in the shears - so I don't miss the wavy blade at all. In summary - powergear for thicker stuff, wavy blade for thinner twigs.

    • I think this one is shorter than powergear2.

      I was at bunnings yesterday and compared the powergear 2 to a similar Fiskars hedge shear that is not made in China and sells for $79 - is the $79 $50 better? That is subjective.

      I looked at the Hedge Shear & Pruner set in comparison to the powergear 2 and came way with the powergear 2 simply because of the 25 year warranty - I figure if someone is willing to warrant it for that long than I will keep my receipt.

      • What does it cover on 25 years warranty though? Assuming everything that could possibly happen to it, is based on wear and tear?

      • I just wrote a comment below saying basically the same thing (should have read this first, lol. Anyway, agree with you on this one!

      I have checked these physically in store and arrived at the conclusion that the powergear is better. Main reason - there is no mention of the 25 year warranty on this pack… and the quality of this hedge shear vs the powergear looked pretty rough. Still obviously a great set being Fiskars not the quality I would have expected.

        Thanks mate. Went ahead and bought the Powergear.

    Would this be ok to trim my really thick Bush??

      Start with this and finish off with a razor

    • shears good for initial attack then pruners to get the manicured design effect.

    • I suggest waxing. No pain no gain.

        I can recommend Geraldton brand.

      Don't cut the twig accidentally.

      • … or the plums.

    • if this line is made in Brazil, I'd say go for it.

    • Would I be able to achieve a landing strip with these?

  • Normal price?

    • Pricehipster shows it $29 since 8th Sept. Likely was bundled and advertised as sale is store earlier this month.

      Couldn’t find individual products. So many items are not sold separately.

  • I saw this the other day at my local Bunnings with the same price for those who might be interested in a lopper

  • These combos are almost always worse than standalone item, sure you get extra lowish quality second tool, but the main tool is worse as well.

  • Anyone know if the bigger one the same as in this deal?

    Edit: got the answer, no.

  • Aldi has a Garden Tool Set 3pc for $20.

    Similar to this but with the added long scissor.

    • +3

      And aliexpresss probably has one for $10. Idea is buying quality, so you don't have to by something ever year, and don't have to send as much to landfill.

        What is quality though?
        In 1980s products were made to last. Now everything that is made struggles to last.
        Don't be fooled by the high price tag with a branded name.
        Aldi quality is not bad, with a no fuss added warranty.

  • Anyone know if the shears would be any good at cutting grass? Can't see from the images whether the handles are offset from the blades (i.e. not straight)
    Have a small 4m3 patch for the puppy that needs trimming every now and then

      Have a small 4m3

      Grassy room ;)

      • Grassy outdoor room

    • +1

      4m3? As in 4 cubic metres? Why do you have such a large cube of grass?

  • What is the best tool (not too expensive) to trim tall branches and hedge? It's too dangerous for me to climb up the ladder with a hedge shear :(

    • +1

      Grab a pole saw or pole pruner, not going to be really cheap but should be able to grab one sub $100

  • I put through an old a week ago, they just refunded my order.

  • +1

    Can vouch for the quality, cuts like a butter

    • -2

      I typically find that butter cuts very poorly.

      It barely puts up any resistance when confronted by my knife…
