What our customers say
“When I first saw the Collard Pre-Pruner, I said that looks strong, and it is. I have had it for one season and its robustness has really shown through. The ergonomically designed joystick allows me to control the pruner with any hand meaning I don’t have any RSI symptoms from pushing a button.”
