What is the Darlac Swop Top range?

The Darlac Swop Top range offers a choice of three lightweight aluminium poles, starting at 98cm extending to 2.44m, right up to 5m when extended. Taking the user’s height and reach into account, this means it’s possible to prune branches up to 8m (26 ft) high, without leaving the ground!

Many of the heads in the Swop Top pruning range can be switched easily and will take care of the finest twigs right up to a 20cm branch, while the Swop Top cleaning attachments can assist with anything from simple window cleaning to gutter and conservatory fascia clearing, and a whole host of other tasks around the home and garden.

  1. Pastyfarian

    I use quite a few of the swap top gadgets and this works very well at cutting high branches.
    However, it has 1 annoying problem.
    Because the operating string necessarily crosses at an angle between the pulleys, it quite often jumps out of the groove and gets stuck between the pulley wheel and block,
    especially at the top end.
    This is a big nuisance when you are part way through cutting a branch as the string is then jammed and you can’t move the pole.
    I’ve fitted spacer washers between the pulley wheels which has helped, but I think Darlac need to look at the design again.

    An excellent tool.
    Care is needed when using this pruner on a fully extended 5 metre pole because of the flexibility of the top extension.
    Also, ensure that the extension locking is no released when rotating the pole for access to a desired cut.
    When releasing the extension lock, control the speed of the released tube into its parent. If allowed to fall, the locking mechanism can jam, requiring partial disassembly to release.
    Should mine get damaged, I would certainly replace it.
