These lopping shears with aluminium poles and wooden handles are extremely sturdy. The blades are 55 mm long. You operate the lever handle with both hands for strong cutting leverage. The 0.6 m long model cuts branches up to 27 mm in diameter. The 1 m long model with its larger and more substantial shear head cuts branches up to 40 mm in diameter. There is a hook along the back of the shear head for pulling branches towards you or for removing loose branches caught in the tree. On both loppers you can rotate the shear head; to do this, you need only loosen and then retighten one screw with a screwdriver. Manufactured by NISHIGAKI in Japan.
This is a powerful set of shears, thanks to their 80 cm length in combination with the lever-action cutters. The forged blades will stay sharp for a long time.
The handles, made of a high-strength aluminum alloy, oval in section, are covered with a soft plastic for a firm and comfortable grip. A damping pad below the shears acts as a shock absorber as you cut through even the toughest branches. The massive bolts give the shears a smooth, solid action and add to the overall feeling of quality.
