Ideal for cutting thick branches. Power-Lever® technology multiplies leverage to give you up to two times more cutting power than traditional single-pivot loppers. Extendable handles make cutting high branches or cutting at awkward angles easy. Fully hardened, precision-ground steel blade stays sharp, even through heavy use. Low-friction coating helps the blade glide through wood, prevents the blade from gumming up with sap and debris and helps the blade resist rust. Softgrip® touchpoints enhance comfort and control. Steel construction provides lasting durability.
