These Craftsman shears work wonders when you need to trim bushes in your yard. I was able to do the work in about half the time because they are sharp, require less pressure, and are rather lightweight. The blades are 8 inches long and extremely sharp (which is what you want). The handle grips are comfortable and keep a good grip when pruning or trimming.
The arm stoppers on this unit are plastic so I question their durability long-term, but with the Craftsman lifetime warranty that is a non-issue. Everything else is metal and should last.
I am cleaning up the backyard of a house I once rented. I got tired of borrowing the shears my dad has been using for like 30 years. I drove to Sears for new shears.
I saw the "Craftsman" name and thought "These are the shears to buy."
After one weekend of use the blades have bent and now no longer make full contact. These shears are useless. I will now go back to using my dad's American-made 30 year-old shears.
Its really sad, but it seems the Craftsman label my dad new and that I knew as a kid is NOT THE SAME. Why must companies like Sears sell low quality junk from China? Why can't we manufacture quality tools in the USA like we once did?

Have used it to trim down some bushes and also to cut small branches. Has worked great so far. The product looks steady and looks like will last a long time. I haven't used these shears before so don't know how long the sharpness would be there.
I needed something to quickly attack some bushes, some weeds, and even do some tree pruning. This tool did the job. Easy to use. Sharp. Hope to get more years of use out of it.

Purchased these shears to clean up an overgrown backyard, and they did the trick. They easily and smoothly cut through bush branches and thick, tall, overgrown weeds, and they seem to be well made.
I decided to use these instead of the electric trimmers and they do a great job. I was surprised how easily they closed and opened and feel like the shrubs look better than with the electric trimmers. This was a good purchase.
