Bahco Ergonomic Secateurs
What the doctor ordered – ergonomically shaped handles.
The Swedish firm Bahco has a long tradition of designing cutting implements that protect the user from the kind of wear-and-tear and fatigue syndromes (e.g. carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis) that often plague professional gardeners. They’ve designed these secateurs in collaboration with French and German health experts. The downward tilt of the blades means the wrist doesn’t have to be twisted so much and keeps the operator’s hand in a neutral position: the leftward tilt (for right-handers) prevents the hand from getting bent and, again, promotes a neutral working position. In this way the gardener gets more power with less exertion and the risk of torsion injuries is minimized. The handles have a gentle undulating shape in order to equalize distribution of pressure on the palm of the hand. In this illustration we show a pair of secateurs in the commonest size for right-handers. Other models for left-handers or right-handers with different handle length can be ordered from our Special Order Department, which also stocks all replacement parts.
