Telescopic extension poles for pruning: electric or pneumatic?

Telescopic extension poles for pruning are essential for those who work professionally on green areas. Pruning can be carried out on any type of plant and is an indispensable step for several reasons. One such reason is that it regulates the growth of the plant, as it stimulates the production of both flowers and fruit, and exposes the foliage to more air and sunlight, effectively preventing the onset of various diseases. Pruning is, therefore, a very important operation when it comes to safeguarding the health of the plants.

Compatible equipment with a telescopic or fixed extension pole is an essential tool for both those carrying out small pruning jobs and those who need to work on large plots. In fact, they share the common goal of enabling operations on particularly high branches, while maintaining the highest level of safety.

Campagnola’s fixed or telescopic extension poles can be attached to our product lines’ shears or chain pruners and are designed to enable operators to work directly on the ground, without the use of ladders, thus minimising risks and maximising their comfort.

Plug-in-battery operated, electric or pneumatic telescopic extension pole for pruning

When equipped with extension poles, Campagnola tools can reach every part of the foliage, for effective operations in fruit growing,olive growing, nursery gardening or ornamental plant care.

Campagnola aluminium or carbon extension poles are lightweight and versatile and can be used for both pruning and trimming. They are particularly robust and available in different lengths. The ones made of 100% carbon are, of course, lighter.

When you need to select the extension poles best suited to your needs, it is essential to analyse the pros and cons of each model available on the market. Special attention should be paid to the differences between extension poles designed for electric tools and those for pneumatic pruning.

One factor that can help you in your choice is whether you need to carry out intensive, semi-intensive or hobby pruning work, so that you can select the most suitable option. Campagnola’s proposals include two product lines, the GREEN Line and the PROFESSIONAL Line, designed and manufactured precisely to meet the needs of two different categories of users.

The former is ideal for non-intensive pruning and consists of tools powered by plug-in lithium-ion batteries, while the latter is designed for users who make intensive use of their tools and includes efficient electric and pneumatic solutions.

So what are the best telescopic extension poles for pruning of Campagnola brand? What are the fixed alternatives or those dedicated to electric pruning?

Pruning shears with plug-in battery and telescopic extension pole

The common feature of all Campagnola pruning shears is their remarkable robustness, which is also due to the extremely durable steel blades. The high quality materials, the ergonomic handles and the power of these tools guarantee operators fast, comfortable, and high-performance pruning sessions.

Campagnola models compatible with telescopic extension poles for pruning include STARK M and STARK L, electric shears with plug-in battery from the GREEN Line. Powered by latest-generation lithium-ion batteries, they let you prune with maximum freedom of movement, thanks to the absence of cables.

STARK L and STARK M are two extremely easy to handle yet robust and powerful models. They deliver over 80 cuts per minute and, thanks to their excellent balance, do not tire the operator out during work sessions. While STARK L is capable of cutting branches up to 37 mm in diameter, STARK M works effortlessly on branches up to 32 mm in diameter. In addition, both shears are equipped with an innovative feature: two quick activations of the trigger make it so that the blade opening varies from 70% to 100%.

Thanks to their compatibility with Campagnola’s electric telescopic extension poles for pruning, the shears with plug-in battery ensure maximum efficacy and versatility in the field, letting operators go on with their work even when needing to reach the highest foliage.

In addition to these electric pruning shears that can be attached to telescopic extension poles, Campagnola offers handy electric pruning shears that are already mounted on a fixed extension pole and are perfect for fatigue-free and safe work from the ground. STARK 90-160-220 V1 are among the most functional models of pruning shears mounted on a fixed extension pole that have been designed by our R&D department. They are available in three lengths (i.e. 90, 160 and 220 cm) and let you prune taller branches without the use of ladders.


Pneumatic pruning shears mounted on an extension pole

In addition to the convenience of electric pruning shears on extension poles, it is also possible to get the most out of the pneumatic models, designed for the most demanding operators engaged in intensive sessions on large plots of land. Some of the models that make up the Campagnola PROFESSIONAL Line can be attached to handy telescopic or fixed extension poles.

For example, STAR 40 pneumatic shears with adapter are compatible with all extension poles, a feature that further enhances the performance of this model that can effectively cut all types of wood.

VICTORY pneumatic shear is also suitable for intensive pruning and is designed for precision work in olive groves, orchards and vineyards. It achieves an even higher level of performance when used in combination with our fixed or telescopic extension poles.

The pneumatic family also includes the STAR 50 and F/6 U loppers, which can cut large branches on all types of plant. They differ by the presence of a movable hooked blade on the F/6 U model and a straight cutting blade for the STAR 50 model.  Conversely, they have in common their low weight and perfect balance, as well as their cutting power and blades made of highly resistant forged steel.

Fixed extension poles can be used to reach the highest parts of the foliage. However, unlike the telescopic extension pole, the extension poles for STAR 50 and F/6 U loppers are fixed and custom-designed for these models. They range from 50 to 300 cm and surprisingly extend the way these tools can be used.


Campagnola chain pruners with electric extension poles for pruning

Campagnola range of electric chain pruners compatible with fixed extension poles includes KRONOS 58.  Incredibly high-performing, the PROFESSIONAL Line is designed for pruning orchards and ornamental plants, but is perfect for any type of plant.  The salient feature of KRONOS 58 is the power supply via powerful, long-lasting lithium-ion batteries, as well as the option of six different chain speeds (from 11.4 m/sec to 14.8 m/sec). Furthermore, this electric chain pruner can be used with 120 or 160 cm fixed electric extension poles for electric pruning, bringing the total length of the tool to 190 or 230 cm.

The GREEN Line also has no shortage of chain pruners designed to be used even for taller branches, ensuring efficiency and maximum user comfort. For example, T-REX chain pruner with plug-in battery is also available mounted on a 160-240 cm or 250-300 cm telescopic extension pole for electric pruning. T-REX 160-240 and T-REX 250-300 are essential for pruning fruit trees, ornamental plants and vineyards, as they make for precise and safe pruning of branches at all heights and up to 21 cm in diameter.


Pneumatic extension poles for pruning: which tools are compatible?

The fundamental versatility and utility of telescopic or fixed extension poles for pruning increase the efficacy of even pneumatic chain pruners.
LASER pneumatic chain pruner can make clean, burr-free cuts on branches up to 20 cm in diameter. Vibration-free, silent, ergonomic and powerful, LASER is equipped with a magnesium alloy body and all the most advanced Campagnola safety systems. It is also compatible with fixed pneumatic carbon or aluminium extension poles without handle, as well as with pneumatic aluminium telescopic extension poles with handle.
LINX, on the other hand, is designed to be used only in conjunction with extension poles, those same extension poles that complement the performance of the LASER model. Available with an 8″ carving bar, its versatility is also due to the speed of its chain (11 m/sec) and its weight of just 1.2 kg.

AUTOLUBE M.3 is compatible with the same poles, and has also been designed to be used exclusively on extension poles. This tool is also available in an 8″ carving bar version and can be attached to both fixed extension poles and carbon or aluminium telescopic extension poles, with and without handle.
