Milwaukee M18 Brushless Telescoping Pole Pruning Shears Review 3008-21

An Arborist’s Take on the Milwaukee M18 Brushless Telescoping Pole Pruning Shears (3008-21)

As a professional arborist, I’m constantly on the lookout for tools that can make my job easier, faster, and safer. Hauling around a clunky ladder and wrestling with manual pruners can be a real drag on a long day. That’s why I was excited to get my hands on the Milwaukee M18 Brushless Telescoping Pole Pruning Shears (model 3008-21). Here’s my take on this innovative tool after putting it to the test:

Power and Performance

This isn’t your average electric pruner. The brushless motor packs a serious punch, effortlessly slicing through branches up to 1 ¾” in diameter. No more struggling with thick limbs that leave you with aching arms. I was particularly impressed by the clean, bypass cuts it makes, minimizing damage to the tree.

Reach and Ergonomics

The telescoping feature is a game-changer. Being able to extend the pole from 7ft to 10ft allows me to reach high branches without needing a ladder. This is a huge safety benefit, as well as a big-time saver. The ergonomic design makes the tool comfortable to use for extended periods, reducing fatigue.

Overall Impressions

Milwaukee’s M18 Brushless Telescoping Pole Pruning Shears (model 3008-21) is a well-designed, powerful tool that has quickly become a staple in my arborist toolkit. It’s significantly reduced the amount of time I spend pruning while keeping me safe on the job. While the price tag might be a bit steeper than traditional pruners, for professional arborists or serious homeowners who tackle tough pruning jobs regularly, the increased efficiency and safety make it a worthwhile investment.

It’s important to wear proper safety gear when using any power tool, including gloves, eye protection, and long pants.

I would definitely recommend the Milwaukee M18 Brushless Telescoping Pole Pruning Shears (model 3008-21) to any arborist or homeowner looking for a powerful, efficient, and safe way to tackle pruning tasks.
