FELCO technical specifications
Wire cutting notch
The blades feature a notch that allows for the cutting of small wires without damaging the cutting edge.
The sap groove prevents the blade sticking when cutting "sappy" wood. It saves time and makes pruning easier by removing sap and debris after each cut.
FELCO's micrometric adjustment system guarantees an optimal adjustment of the cutting head throughout the life of the tool. It ensures a clean and precise cut.
Shock absorption system
The cushion and shock absorber soften the impact upon finishing cutting. The hand and wrist are also protected.
Forged aluminum handles
Lightweight, strong and sturdy thanks to special aluminum alloys and advanced precision forging methods. Equipment comes with a lifetime guarantee*.
Angled cutting head
Inclined cutting head to reduce the risk of muscular-skeletal injuries and to maximise user comfort.
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.
After cleaning, it is advisable to oil the tool so as to protect it from corrosion. The oil will also unjam the tool.
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!
It is advisable to dismantle your tool on a regular basis, but at the very latest when it appears to be jammed.
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.
When the blade and anvil-blade no longer cross and the anvil-blade is badly damaged, it is advisable to change it.
When the tool closes too abruptly during pruning, and the cushion is in good condition, the shock absorber should be changed.
When the tool closes too abruptly during pruning and the shock absorber is in good condition, the cushion must be changed.
When the thumb catch is damaged and loosens when used, even when the screw is readjusted, change it.
If the coatings are badly damaged, you can replace them. Soak the coatings for 2 minutes in boiling water - recommended glue: Loctite 415.
