At INFACO we design and manufacture electric pruning shears exclusively for use by professional pruners. Electric pruning shears are tools carried at arm’s length all day long. It is therefore important to develop and market pruning shears that are as lightweight as possible. Our challenge from day one has been, model after model, to propose tools that are ever more powerful, while reducing their weight to the nearest gramme.
For these reasons, our electric pruning shears are powered by a remote battery connected by a cable. In that way, the weight carried at arm’s length all day is considerably reduced. Furthermore, our battery, which guarantees a full day’s autonomy, can also be slipped into a pocket or simply clipped onto a belt.
To overcome some of the inconveniences caused by the old coiled cable, the F3020 has a straight cable. Connected directly to the battery, it can be inserted into the sleeve and/or clipped on using the armband, giving a feel equivalent to that of cordless pruning shears.
A new range of pruning shears with built-in batteries is attempting to penetrate the market. In our opinion, this type of design is neither intended nor suitable for professionals. We don’t recommend it for use over a full working day, as it is heavier, slower, less powerful and has limited cutting capacity.
