These are junk. Cheap metal blades knick after one use, handles are flimsy and too flexible. They are 95% cheapo plastic, not a strong yard tool. Good if you only need to use them once or twice I guess

I bought a pair five years ago. Never had a problem with them. I still use them and have cut thousands of branches with them most likely. They cut up to about 1 1/2".

Maybe they have drastically reduced the quality.

Good thing they have a lifetime warranty.

I don't know which lopper I have, but I got one a couple years ago and it still works perfectly. I've tried cutting some pretty big branches, and even ones large enough that it couldn't get through, it lasted just fine. Blades are still sharp, with no knicks.

I'd say these are some solid loppers, and a lifetime warranty to back it up.

I too have these. I'm very happy with them after one year of solid yard work.

I'd suggest getting the titanium line, if possible. Has a nice cut on it, think it lets you cut slightly bigger branches. However, the handles are pretty lightweight. Not a problem for me, but yeah they could use a redesign on the handles

Sorry, where loppers are concerned, get the Fiskars with the "POWERGEAR" or PowerGear2. Trust me. Worth the extra investment. They are UH MAZE ZING. Super light, and the gear makes lopping a LOT less work.

They last longer because you don't have to FORCE them to go beyond their limits. I have destroyed a lot of loppers because they give laterally. The PowerGear somehow doesn't.

One of the best designed tools out there. Sucks that they even sell this type.

You cut a 1 1/2" branch with these? That's believable. How long have you worked for fiskars?

Fiskars has become junk. The 'titanium' version of the fiskars blade cracked in half trying to cut about a 1/3" diameter branch

agree my titanium blade chipped on first use, fiskars will replace the first blade free but after that you are on your own

IMHO My Fiskars power gear 32" has been nothing but awesome since I bought it 3 years ago. I did chip the blade when I was cutting a 3" diameter branch. Fiskars gave me a new blade for free. Hopefully the new titanium blade is as reliable as the old steel one.
