The Cadillac of loppers ~ reviewed by retired early

Yes, this is the one for you. This is high quality material, that can be sharpened over and over again. It’s wide opening and long reach is a plus. Also, it is very lighweight easy to operate. This is the type that pro landscapers use. How do I know this I asked a few. Most, told me that this model is in their toolbox. They , cannot afford to replace those cheaper models , every time they brake down. So, if your like me, and is looking for quality that lasts, then this is the tool for you. You have to do the job anyway, why not make it as easy as you can.Ps , I just recently used this tool on my lemon and grapefruit trees. It is easy to reach the fruit inside the trees. These trees are loaded with prickly needles. No more scratched or bleeding hands.

Just as i thought!! ~ reviewed by sandy

Great tool!! I have a bunch of Jack pines to trim up for my fruit tress to grow strong. They worked for every cut I made! beautifully!!! Jack pines are very sticky, as they are alive, but it didn’t stop these loppers from performing perfectly.

Powerful ~ reviewed by Susan Maurmann

These are great, trimming smaller limbs and bushes in the yard couldn’t be easier. Nice weight and easy to use, would buy these again if ever needed another pair.

nice piece of hardware ~ reviewed by monte collins

Worked as required and expected. Now I have three sizes of this same product. Great for the price yep yep.

Works great so far ~ reviewed by Amazon Customer

Strong, easy to clean, easy to use, easy to sharpen. When hand-pruners just won’t cut it, these will get the job done. Highly recommended.

Very sharp and cuts surprisingly with ease. ~ reviewed by Old DOS user

Cutting leverage is very good. I cut a great deal of branches and after 3 hours I was amazed that I was not tired out. I am 74.

Update; Someone just asked me the measurement overall and just the handle. I took the time to get an exact measurement: The overall length of the entire tool is 36.5″, and the handle alone is 30.5″ up to the base of the cutting jaws. I hope this helps someone else.

Basically good quality, nice design, easy cutting of thick branches. Only observation is the tip of the support blade curve is small, so sometimes the thin twig slip out at cutting. I reccommend for professional use.

defective pruner ~ reviewed by Tom Davidson

it broke after 15-20 minutes use on smaller lilac branches. The forged head snapped. we may have just gotten a defective item.


If such a wood as butter wood existed maybe you would be able to cut a 21/2″ limb.
The reason I am keeping this product is because of it,s reach and my need to cut mainly 1/2″ stems
in a difficult position. I found my shorter lopper cut through branches more easily.
If you have thick branches to prune buy a chain saw on a pole.

The best loppers I have ever used and I have used them all. ~ reviewed by Mike C


I worked on a tree farm for many years using Corona’s every day.

These are much better than the ones I used (and broke) when I trimmed trees full time.

The extra reach is great and they are tough as nails.Buy it at Amazon
