    Good tool, but
    Concept for the Piranha cordless pruner is great, and overall it works pretty good. Challenge is the battery does not cut 50 one-inch cuts before needing recharge, and Black & Decker does not provide replacement blades for purchase. Probably best to spend $30+ and buy an extra battery as a spare.

    Cordless, light weight, easy to handle


    Battery life is too limited, blades are easy to break and B&D does not offer replacement blades for sale.
