MILWAUKEE Tool has launched new brushless telescopic shears, which it says provide "fast, clean pruning." 

When compared to the manual application, the M18 shears reduce peak muscle activation completing challenging applications faster than manual solutions.

Optimised for extended reach bypass pruning to deliver the best cut quality for vegetation health, the shears provide the power to cut up to 44 mm branches. The tools feature an ergonomic adjustment collar, allowing for quick and easy length adjustments from 2.1 metres collapsed to 3 metres, fully extended.

A press release from Milwaukee added: "The attachment-free extended reach of up to 3 metres enhances the ability to complete long-reach applications. When paired with M18 Redlithium High Output 5.5 Ah battery pack, the telescopic shears can complete up to 2,000 cuts in 2.5 cm softwood per charge in 44 mm branches.

"Milwaukee Tool is committed to improving productivity by providing performance-driven and trade-focused solutions so users can perform an entire day’s work on one battery system. 

"The new M18 Brushless Telescopic Shear is fully compatible with the entire M18 line, now offering more than 290 power tool solutions."

Elsewhere, the manufacturer has further expanded its range of outdoor power equipment, with the latest releases including updates to its range of lawn mowers, blowers, pole saws, hedge trimmers and more.

Rhys Adams, national sales manager, said: “Thanks to our extensive range, professionals have access to a singular battery platform with the right tools to ensure they can get the job done with ease and efficiency.
