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."

Top chopper
1 Aug 2014
By AFThread
, East Sussex
"Very good piece of kit appearing to be well made and strong. Good low-geared positive action means it will cut stuff the gave my previous loppers a problem.
Overall rating four stars only because of need to open lopper handles to almost 90 degrees to release the spring-loaded cutting jaws to the fully open position. This is less of a problem with the handles set at a short length but it can inhibit access if you are trying to reach between two branches to get at one further away. Still, well worth the money.

Fell to pieces
18 Feb 2013
By characias
, Reading
"Unfortunately this superb tool failed through inadequate fasteners. After three weeks the nylon antislip nuts had loosened to the extent that a spring fell out and the loppers no longer worked. When they worked they were wonderful, the cutting blade and anvil are great, however they seem to have been assembled by an accountant rather than an engineer."
