Review of Long-Handle Swivel Grass Shears

Fiskars Long-Handle Swivel Grass Shears
These long-handle grass shears by Fiskars save you back strain from bending and sore knees from kneeling to trim the grass around flower beds, trees and sidewalks. 

In my collection of gardening/lawn care tools, I already owned a pair of hand-held grass shears

These shears are very handy for trimming bushes. But bending over trying to tidy-up the grass growing around the mailbox at the curb, or any trimming along the driveway or flower beds is hard on my back.

Then I discovered the existence of a set of grass shears with a long handle. Perfect! No more bending, no more back strain or sore knees from kneeling down to reach those annoying grasses which insist on growing around the gutter extensions and against the fence which no lawn mower can reach.

The Fiskars grass shears have a 36 inch long shaft with blades that swivel 180 degrees for easy trimming at any angle.  Can be used horizontally for trimming and vertically for edging.  

The 4-1/2 inch blades cut all the way to the tip and hold grass up for clean cuts. It is easy to edge and trim around borders and obstacles with precision straight snips.

These long-handle grass shears are of steel construction which stay sharp even through heavy use.  They have an ergonomically designed handle which provides a comfortable grip.  The smooth-cutting mechanism makes each snip easy. The easy-open lock protects the blades during transport and storage. 

A definite improvement to my line of lawn tools. Even though my sweet teenage grandson does most of my lawn mowing, I am in charge of keeping the trimming done. It is a weekly chore as the grass grows so fast this time of year! The Fiskar long-handle grass shears have certainly made my lawn-care life easier.

  1. You make me wish that I had to trim grass back at certain places that I would have had. Alas, I gave up all that kind of "garden work" a few years ago. Now my son and his wife, might find this interesting so I will pass this along to them. Thanks for a great review.

    1. Thanks, Olivia. Sure is much easier to trim without having to bend over. :)

  2. What great idea Pat. I never knew anything like this existed. I'm always pulling grass around the flowers where my trimmer won't work. I'm always in fear of getting too close with my trimmer. I've whacked many of healthy flower with my trimmer. This is a perfect tool, the older I get the less I bend!!

    1. Me too, Sam. Bending seems to be one of the first things to go... LOL. Anything that eliminates strain and pain when dealing with yard work is OK in my book. :)

  3. My own back would certainly appreciate these long-handled grass shears. I would use them around the base of our trees. A weed eater will damage the tree trunks and a lawnmower can't get close enough. I end if using hand-held shears to trim. My husband does most of that work, but on the rare occasion that I help him, it would be nice to eliminate the back pain from bending over to trim grass.

  5. Those are handy! What a terrific gardening tool to have on hand - A long handled pair of sheers is exactly what I need. I'll be adding this to my 'things to get list.' I can see how they save the knees, and when bending is difficult, what a life saver.

    1. Easier ways to work in the yard is definitely OK in my book, Barbara. Thanks for stopping by.

  6. You had me at knees and bending! What a great improvement from the traditional shears. I have a Fiskars "lopper" for trees branches and it is a sharp and easy to use tool. (Can yard tools be fun? these are!)

  7. Elf, both my husband and I have back issues, and although my knees are MUCH better since losing weight and reducing joint inflammation (via keto), the cartilage covering my knees is very worn and they still get cranky if I do a lot of bending. I'll definitely be showing this review to my husband (who does most of our yard work).

  9. Oh these look great for those trimming jobs around the garden and sound very versatile! Certainly better for those of us with back issues than bending for ages. Now on my wish list! :)
