We've looked at hundreds of these; virtually all are completely manufactured in Taiwan or China and perform just adequately.
These two are different, made to Garrett Wade's standards. They use a special ratcheting mechanism (double ratcheting in the case of the Anvil Pruner), oversized for strength, and equipped with a coated blade. To this they add telescoping handles (26 to 40" long with 6 pin-locked position stops and rubber grips). Cutting jaw capacity is 2 to 2-1/2". If you are looking for a lifetime arborist's quality tool, look no further.
We cannot recommend these enough for heavy work: they are superb. The Anvil Pruner is designed for cutting dry wood and the Bypass Pruner for green wood, you'll need both types.
