Summer is rapidly approaching; we’re already just under a month away from the solstice, and we all know what that means. Outdoor work is set to kick into high gear across a variety of industries, not the least of which is landscaping. Whether you work in the industry or consider yourself an at-home DIYer, one of the most tedious aspects of landscape work is pruning. A handheld pair of pruning shears can cause hand cramps left and right, leading to extended periods of being outdoors in sometimes sweltering heat in order to get the job done; thankfully, that can all be a thing of the past.

M12™ Brushless Pruning Shears

Announced back at Milwaukee‘s Pipeline event in August (feel free to read our write-up about it here), these are the all-new M12 Brushless Pruning Shears (2534-20). Capable of delivering up to 75% faster application speeds than manual solutions, these pruning shears offer the fastest pruning on the market. With a lightweight design to offer better accessibility and more control in intricate situations, these pruners deliver the power to cut through 1-¼” branches with a Mode Select board to provide the ability to lock the blades into set positions, increasing speeds by nearly 40%.

M12™ Brushless Pruning Shears

One of Milwaukee’s biggest aims with this new pair of M12 Pruning Shears is to reduce fatigue during use. Working in tandem with the lightweight design is their unique trigger tracking technology, which enables the blade to follow the trigger movement; this also allows for more control in your cut capacity. For ease of use over extended periods of time, Milwaukee recommends pairing the Pruning Shears with their M12 2.0Ah battery, which is capable of delivering over 1,000 cuts to ½” branches on a single charge, allowing you to power through your day like a nice spring breeze.
