Essential tools - Pole pruners/hook

This is one of those tools I went for years without and now wonder how on earth I managed, I now take them to every job

They may not get used on every job but I'd sooner have them and not need them than need them and not have them!

I have x2 4ft poles and x2 6ft poles which gives me a good range of options for height, I may think about adding another 6 ft pole at some point.

The pruners are perfect for the finishing touches on a medium reduction or for virtually every cut on a small one and the hook comes in equally useful, whether its freeing hanging branches, pulling over small trees or lifting phone lines clear of a branch, I wouldn't want to do some jobs with out it.

I also use the poles for my Big shot, which again may not get used very often, but makes life a lot easier when it does.

My poles are Frank Marvin, but they look identical to Jameson poles and are interchangeable with there accessories. I've been very impressed with the quality and build and seem to take any punishment I throw at them and show very little sign of their age or use
