Below I have a list of some very useful yard tools made by the Fiskars Company.

Anyone who owns property knows that it is in constant need of maintenance. Trimming bushes, edging borders or cutting limbs is a constant chore in the spring and summer months.

The forest or jungle, depending on where you live, has a tendency to creep up onto your property if you let it. And the bigger your piece of property is means the bigger the jobs are.

The good news is that the tools made today make the job a whole lot easier and quicker than it was for our ancestors. Gear driven tools add compound leverage to the device making it easier to cut larger objects.

Gardening and yard work may be the hardest jobs a homeowner has to do on a regular basis. As a person gets older they tend to appreciate tools that make their chores as easy as possible.

In days past tools were made so that you would have to bend over, squat or kneel down to do certain jobs whereas today Fiskars many different garden and yard tools makes it so you can do the job standing up.

The Fiskar Tool Company has been around for a very long time making useful tools for your home, garden and yard. Their commitment to quality and ease of use for the homeowner in unsurpassed. They produce a wide variety of hand tools that have made gardening and yard work easier than it ever has been.

The Power Gear technology on some of Fiskars tools that I list below is unsurpassed in its ability to make any cutting job easier. The gear mechanisms adds leverage to your cuts giving you 3x the power over normal cutting tools.

All of the tools I decide to review must meet a certain criteria.

– All of the tools are under $50.00. Most tools are mass-produced these days so they are very affordable.

– All items must get at least 4 stars on an Amazon review. I think that having people that have actually used the tool and then took the time to review it makes a difference.

– All of the tools must be eligible for Amazon Prime, which means if you are a member, there is shipping cost.

– After I review all the tools I will leave my recommendations below as to which one I think are the best value.

I am an Amazon Affiliate in training. If you click on a link below and decide to purchase an item I do make a little bit of money, with no extra cost to you. I strive to give you the best reviews possible on the best products I can find.
