Fine pruning with ARS and Sorbus International

Somerset based Sorbus International Ltd. are the appointed exclusive UK distributors of the Japanese ARS range of high quality pruning equipment. Established in 1876, ARS produce high quality saws, secateurs, telescopic pruners, shears and loppers with the emphasis on the highest standard of steel production.

ARS saw“In the many years we have been supplying arboriculture and grounds maintenance equipment,” says Phil Wade, Sorbus’ Managing Director, “this is the first complete range of pruning tools we have come across that offers such high quality, coupled with ergonomic design and superb cutting ability. Yet it’s economic and durable and one we are proud to distribute in the UK.”

The secret lies in a combination of impulse hardening techniques that create a remarkable hardness for the cutting blades, and hard chrome plating for rust proofing and durability. The smooth surface is designed to prevent resin from sticking and accumulating on the blades. There are also products for fruit harvesting, flower arranging and handycraft uses. Sorbus International is a leading supplier of specialist and hi-tech equipment to the arboricultural, forestry, landscaping, utility, ground maintenance and environmental care sectors in the UK and worldwide. The company began with hi-tech decay detection products for trees and timber structures and has developed to encompass a wide range of products for landscaping, tree care, climbing, bracing, lowering equipment, as well as safety, hi-viz, corporate and wet weather clothing.

Sorbus have recently expanded and welcome dealer and distributor enquiries for the ARS range and the opportunity to supply equipment on a contract basis.
