  • Maintenance

    • 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.

  • Parts replacement

    • 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 over 2/3 of its length.

    • 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 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 cushion

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