Fiskars PowerGear2 Titanium Hedge Shears use patented technology to multiply your leverage, providing up to 3x more power on every cut. The innovative design can tackle thick branches while maintaining a smaller, lighter body, reducing strain on your hands, wrists and muscles during extended use or while reaching to make a cut. Additionally, shock-absorbing bumpers help reduce the jarring conclusion at the end of cuts. The fully hardened, precision-ground steel blades are enhanced with a titanium coating for smooth cutting, less gumming and rust protection. In fact, these hedge shears make cutting so much easier they've earned the Arthritis Foundation's Ease of Use Commendation.
