Bahco Pruning shears

All Bahco secateurs guarantee the user a clean cut with maximum efficiency. All models in the range can be used to cut any type of plant.

In the Bahco range there are different types of secateurs available, for 3 main reasons :

  • Professional use - The main reason Bahco has various types of pruning shears is because the secateurs are designed for use by people who make between 5000 and 12000 cuts per day. In this type of work environment a small improvement in tool efficiency can save the user a lot of hand strain and fatigue.
  • Hands - Since users have different size hands, each tool is made in at least 2 sizes.
    In addition, there are some models available for left-handed users.
  • Customer Preference - Another major reason there are various types of Bahco pruning shears is simply customer preference.
    Some users are keen to embrace modern technology and materials while others want tools that look and feel like the ones they have always used and are used to.
    Some users seek the best secateur that money can buy and there are others that just want a good efficient tool.

  2. Less damage to your plants

The P126 pruning shear is a very robust shear, with a traditional, proven design suitable for vineyard, gardening and landscaping applications.

The centre bolt is offset from the centre line of the tool, resulting in the "slicing action" that Bahco pruning tools are famous for.

This increases the area of the blade that is used for cutting.

The high quality blade ensures a clean cut every time.

The locking mechanism is a simple wire clasp at the end of the handle that folds away while the tool is in use.

The blade is NOT replaceable.
