Customer feedback drives new Darlac launches
Darlac, the cutting tool experts, launched a number of new products at Glee and two pairs of loop handled secateurs are proving very popular new additions.
Loop handled secateurs were introduced after feedback from gardeners who wanted the additional security, comfort and safety of the hand protection offered at the same time as gaining extra control over “the cut”. Darlac enjoy being innovators so the two pruners offer different, but important, additional benefits.
The Dual Action Pruner (DP746) has a simple switch system which allows a single cut or a powerful ratchet operation for the anvil cut secateurs. Tests have shown ratchet pruners require up to 30% less power than conventional pruners as the ratchet mechanism multiplies the pressure. The tool has a PTFE coated blade for rust resistance and an integral oil wipe to help maintenance. The suggested retail price is £18.99.


The Adjustable Bypass Pruner (DP334) has a multitude of features. It has a lever system to allow for any hand span so the user can create the right comfort position for hand size and strength. A stem crusher and thorn stripper are built in too and the SK5 high carbon steel blade will be tough and long-lasting. The integral wrist strap helps prevent dropping or losing the tool while the safety catch is both positive and easy to use. The tool has a suggested retail price of £19.99.
Chris Owen, Business Development Manager at Darlac said: “Both of these pairs of pruners have a bright future. We introduced them as a direct response to customer feedback. The Dual Action loop handled pruner is built into our D2 collection upwards while the DP334 appears in our pre-set D3 collection. Both items are available separately of course!”
