Designed to meet the needs of professionals in the outdoor trades, Milwaukee delivers the M18 Brushless Telescoping Pole Pruning Shears, providing fast, clean pruning, eliminating the need for manual pulling. These new telescoping pole pruning shears enhance productivity, allowing professionals to get more done.

“Following the success of our M12 Brushless Pruning Shears, which delivered a solution for pruning in areas with tight access, we set out to deliver a solution on our M18™ battery system, meeting the needs of users who have to tackle extended reach pruning applications,” said Tony Buxton, director of product marketing for Milwaukee Tool. “As the industry’s first, the M18 Brushless Telescoping Pole Pruning Shears exemplifies Milwaukee’s commitment to designing innovative, user-focused solutions to increase operator productivity.”

Optimized for extended reach bypass pruning to deliver the best cut quality for vegetation health, the M18 Brushless Telescoping Pole Pruning Shears provide the power to cut up to 1-¾-inch branches. When compared to the manual application, the M18 Brushless Telescoping Pole Pruning Shears reduces peak muscle activation by up to 80 percent and completes challenging applications up to 3X faster than manual solutions.

The shears feature an ergonomic adjustment collar, allowing for quick and easy length adjustments from 7 feet collapsed to 10 feet fully extended. The attachment-free extended reach of up to 12 feet enhances the ability to complete long-reach applications. When paired with a M18 REDLITHIUM HIGH OUTPUT XC6.0 Battery Pack, the telescoping pole pruning shears can complete up to 2,000 cuts per charge in 1-inch branches.

The Milwaukee M18 Brushless Telescoping Pole Pruning Shears are fully compatible with 250+ solutions in the M18 system.
