My foldable pruning saw has finally had it and needs to be replaced. I've looked in local garden centres but they either have one or none. Online there is lots more choice but then it's unseen. Does anyone have a good one that they would recommend? Would prefer it if blade is replaceable.
I use a Wolf, simply because it can be used either with its own handle, or fitted onto the end of Wolf telescopic extension poles, and so can be used for pruning branches that are normally out of reach.
That's a really good point, Gary. Saves teetering about on step ladders.
I've had a Draper folding saw which was great but I can't get a replacement blade for it as they've stopped making that size. Have now bought a Felco folding saw, which is absolutely brilliant.
Same problem as I have, Heliotrope. Felco came out well in the Which tests and I believe hasa replaceable blade.
My first one was a Wolf, it survived for years with all the neglect I gave it but I lost it out there somewhere. Cheap and cheerful replacements have been and gone and I shall probaly get another Wolf
Wolf for me too because of being able to change handle lengths for different jobs.
We've got a cheap Wicks one and it has been rubbish ! You gets what you pays for....
I have a fiskars one which cost me a tenner but isn't foldable, the blade can be retracted into the handle and for the moderate amount of work I have used it for, seems decent enough.
Thank you everyone. Food for thought there and, Chicky, that makes good sense!
