corona clippers ~ reviewed by L. SHELLABARGER

I amost cried when I used these! Cut through 1 1/2″ branches with little effort and smaller ones like butter. The ratchet action makes ALL the difference.

skeptical at first and then amazed! ~ reviewed by Jeff4U

I must say I was skeptical when this tool arrived. It was smaller than I expected and didn’t think it could handle the job, plus I normally pay a higher price for quality tools. The raving reviews was my reason to give this Corona a try.

AMAZING is all I can say! These clippers ate through branches like butter and with very little effort!
The ratcheting action makes all the difference. Even a caveman could do it.
I ended up trimming trees for the next 3 hours, until I had a truckload.

So yes indeed, you can trust all the 5-star reviews. Corona earned it.
Happy gardening,

Wonderful, especially for women ~ reviewed by Debbie

“Be still my heart–the perfect gift for the pruning female in your life.” I told that to my dad when he asked how I liked my new lopper, and he immediately decided to buy one for my mom (age 65) for Mother’s Day. She’s excited about getting one after trying mine out (though do make sure your female likes tools as gifts before presenting this as a gift.)

I have a small orchard and lots of berry bushes and vines. They’re getting old enough that the branches/canes/vines are thick enough to make cutting them difficult. It takes some full-body involvement to get enough force. I began to think this was potentially dangerous (beyond the bruises it created), so I wanted a better tool. So I bought this lopper.

It looks like it’s built to last. It cuts cleanly and easily. 1″ branches were no effort to cut. The lopper is light and you don’t need to open the handles wide to use it, so I can use it everywhere I need it. The rachet action just happens as you use it. I could make a smooth, single cut on the small branches, and the rachet action engaged automatically when the cut slowed (I’d paused in pushing when I felt resistance) and then it was easy to finish. The bottom part of the cutting blade has waves (rather than a smooth edge) to hold the branch in place as you cut.

After using it for an hour, I got my mom to try it out on a thick 1″ branch. She was amazed, tried it a few more times, and decided it would be worth every cent and now she’s getting one. We’re generally not impulsive buyers–it’s just that much better than what we’d been using. When you spend hours pruning in the spring and fall, it’s well worth the money to get a good tool like this.

Strong= Good Value ~ reviewed by J. Busse

Received in good shape. These are very strong and the ratchetting action keeps the handles in the power zone without requiring you to open them real wide. So these can also be effective when opened slightly.

Great Product ~ reviewed by idesrosi

Bought this to cut our bouganvilla. Worked great cutting through thicker branches. Very pleased with quality and cutting ability.

Good product… ~ reviewed by Patricia J. Kale

These lopping clippers are probably the easiest to use that I have ever purchased . Have been gardening for many years and have tried several types . Since developing arthritis in my right hand , some styles have been very difficult to use . Not so with these . Good product at a good price .

easy to use ~ reviewed by L. Ramirez

This clipper is sturdy and so easy to use. The ratchet assist makes cutting thick branches so easy.I was able to trim by low hanging branches quickly and without help.

Not sending them back, but… ~ reviewed by miguelarton

I bought a set of Coronas because I thought they’d be of decent quality. Sometimes I see t.v. guys using them (although I’m sure they’re given all of that gear.) And they are. They’re well built and the ratchet works without me having to fiddle with it.

However, the blade doesn’t hold up well. After lopping a whole bunch of those whippy 3/4 inch crepe myrtle limbs and several 1&1/2 inch ones I noticed it not working as easily. I looked at the blade and the edge was wearing back. Not just getting dull, which is to be expected. The blade edge actually wore back and developed a recess in the deeper part of it’s curve.

They’re still cutting and I’m not sending them back. But they require more and more effort as the blade wears away.

I have no idea how long such a blade should last. All summer seems reasonable. This blade may not make it that long.

Amazing lopper ~ reviewed by Snow

Good quality. Sturdy tool. Can clear cut one and half inch branches with little effort. Worth every penny. Highly recommended.

Best Pruners Ever! ~ reviewed by suggabugga

Got these for my room mate as she loves working outside. She constantly thanks me for these. Says they are lightweight and doesn’t wear her out to use them for long periods of time. She is over 65 so it is nice to have something even a person of this age can use and enjoy. They are still super sharp after approximately 6 months of use.Buy it at Amazon
