Brilliant item
12 Dec 2014
By Banksy
, Ormskirk Lancs
" Loppers arrived well packed and before estimated delivery time. Very robust. After a minute or two I had sussed out how they worked. Was so pleased that I went out in the rain and started cutting some branches which were slightly bigger than 50mm dia. Worked an absolute treat. Eventually was ordered by 'er in -doors' to put my new toy away and get in from the rain. Just wait for the next dry day though ! "

Anvil Loppers

" After using some cheaper loppers in the past and either the blades being blunt ot the handles bending/failing, these loppers felt really robust and had no problem cutting through a 50mm branch. "

Spear & Jackson Ratchet Anvil
8 Sep 2014
By Golferbaz
, Stoke on Trent
" Unfortunately I did not do enough research on this product, when I got them home and tried them I soon realised I had bought the wrong ones. I originally read the description but wrongly thought they worked with a scissor action but unfortunately they don't. You need to ratchet the cutting blade several times to make a cut and as only needed to cut quite thin branches this was a real pain. I did however experiment with them to cut much thicker branches and they worked really well. So ideally you could do with two types one with the scissor action for those thin branches and this one for the thicker ones. Try before you buy would have been best or you need to have an understanding of how they work. "

SHRUB DESTRUCTION!
29 Aug 2014
By Timberworm
, Bristol
" Having struggled for years with pruning various large shrubs and trees with low branches, using cheap and cheerful loppers, these make a difficult task easy. Using the ratchet means it is not a quick fix but persevere and the results are excellent - neat cut, large diameters. Should have spent the money before. "

" As others have said, great for thick branches as the ratchet provides staged cutting. It takes 4 open-close actions to fully cut.
Handles are easy to extend and stay locked at the length you set.
I cut quite a lot of branches and they did begin to feel heavy after a while, but tiredness had to play a part there. (see photo) "

" I have used these to cut through trees up to 40cm in diameter. With the extending handle get a lot of leverage. Do need long arms and plenty of room to take full advantage. Very impressed. "

" I just finished taking down two large Leylandii trees and in the process, totally abused these loppers. They cut everything I threw at them and are still going strong. Buy these now before they change the design to make them less durable! "

" These Spear & Jackson quality anvil loppers are certainly worth their price. Good strong sturdy build, easy ratchet cutting system makes lopping thicker branches a doddle with minimum effort. I've no hesitation in recommending these as a useful addition to your kit if your work or pastime involves tree lopping. "

Very powerful
21 Jul 2012
By Broadwayman
, Essex
" These loppers replaced a previous pair (cheaper & inferior make) that snapped while I was using them. Spear & Jackson is a respected make so I trusted what I was buying and they have a ten year guarantee. They are very powerful and cut through quite thick branches. The ratchet system works perfectly, making light work of lopping. One very small drawback is that as you open the handles the blades spring right open, so you have to work the handles a few times if the branch is not very thick. Small complaint though and would certainly recommend them. "

Powerful path cutter
29 Nov 2014
By FlightPondKeeper
, Cornwall
" I have just purchased this long handled loppers and have found them the most powerful I have yet to use. They cut through thick willow branches effortlessly. The only drawback is that each cut requires several ratchet movements of the handles regardless of the wood thickness. This is of no problem with the large branches it is intended for but quite a bore when trimming back many minor items. Ideally you need to bring along with you a smaller secateurs and keep switching tools as appropriate. "

By AndytheMD

" This was bought as a direct replacement for my previous loppers - the same design - which lasted over 15 years and have just given up. Good to see they have not messed about with the design too much, this product looks and feels just as good as my choice 15 years ago. "
