Felco Pruners

Felco Pruners have been the best pruners for me.  I am tough on tools and have damaged my only pair.  

I think they are manufactured in Europe and they had a life long guarantee.

Does anyone know if this is still the case?  I have damaged mine but can't even find a US distributor to return them to.

They are made in Switzerland and I don't recall them having lifetime guarantee, they do sell spare parts though and they are very easy to take apart and restore. What have you broken on them?

Hi Henry:

Yes at one point they did have a lifetime guarantee here in the US because I have had them fixed by the company before, at least by their US branch.

I seem to always lose the spring in the brush and can't find it.  So I am currently spring-less.

Hi Pavel, Lee Valley tools carries the springs -  [url]https://www.leevalley.com/en-ca/shop/garden/garden-care/100538-felco-replacement-springs [url]
They are a reliable company and periodically have "free shipping" days if there isn't one near you. I'm sure there other providers if you try searching, but sometimes trustworthiness is worth no-hassle results!
