Description

There is nothing roundabout in the way the revolving handle of the FELCO 12 spreads the load and deals with the stress on your muscles. A 30% reduction in the cutting force required –is not something you will dismiss at the end of a long day’s pruning. The FELCO 12 is an ideal tool for all hand sizes across the full range of pruning applications. From the first grip they will mould into an agile extension of your pruning hand. Rubber shock absorbers and an angled cutting head contribute considerably to the perceptible comfort of operation. With a fully adjustable cutting head, you will very soon wonder how you ever pruned without them.

Product & Maintenance Tips

Cleaning

It is advisable to clean your tool after each use. If your tool is particularly dirty or subject to rusting after exposure to moisture, do not delay cleaning.

Oiling

After cleaning, it is advisable to oil the tool so as to protect it from corrosion. The oil will also unjam the tool.

Sharpening

It is advisable to sharpen your tool at least once a day, but if you feel that your tool is not cutting as well as usual, sharpen it right away!

Dismantling

It is advisable to dismantle your tool on a regular basis, but at the very latest when it appears to be jammed.

Changing the anvil-blade

When the blade and anvil-blade no longer cross and the anvil-blade is badly damaged, it is advisable to change it.

Changing the blade

When the blade and the anvil-blade no longer cross, or when the blade is badly damaged, it is advisable to change it. Regulate the working of the blade and anvil-blade by adjusting the tightening of the nut. The blade should rub against the anvil-blade o

Dismantling the revolving handle

It is advisable to dismantle the revolving handle on a regular basis, so that it does not become jammed.

Changing the shock absorber

When the tool closes too abruptly during pruning, and the cushion is in good condition, the shock absorber should be changed.

Changing the thumb catch

When the thumb catch is damaged and loosens when used, even when the screw is readjusted, change it.

Changing the plastic coatings for handles

If the coatings are badly damaged, you can replace them. Soak the coatings for 2 minutes in boiling water - recommended glue: Loctite 415.
