I picked these up as a replacement to the shears I broke previouly. These shears work well so far. I say so far as I tend to break loppers on a regular basis. I usually break handles but have also shattered a blade. Any way, these are standing up to my use. I don't know what the other are complaining about as these loppers are holding up well. I don't know what size branches they are cutting but if they don't fit in the anvil loppers you should think about getting a saw. I liked them enough to get a second pair when they were a Sears "Today's Real Deal."
The handles are not attached well, and they fell off. Some plastic holder inside the handle broke. Could not be repaired. I hope they will give me my money back, because it's not worth exchanging, it'd just break again.
I prefer the anvil type of cutter since it is more precise.....the side cutter sometimes jam with bark and you don't get a clean cut....I bought another for a friend of mine and she loved it
use it to cut tree branches works great
I purchased this anvil lopper to cut down hugh piles of dead brunches. It's working great for me, light but powerful up to 2 inches. It's working well on live brunches too.
One cold morning the lopper got stuck, so in sears store they replaced a new one for me
I prefer this type to the bypass style loppers.
These shears were great for pruning back small branches, bushes, and roses. The long handles give you the leverage needed, and being able to reach branches.
The shears are very sharp. They worked great! Good value for the money.
These things cut like a surgical knife. They are strong and I believe they will be quite durable.
they are great
Very substantial construction. Expect them to last!
I bought this to cut through some very thick branches on a fig tree, I was not optimistic I would be able to get through the thickness. I was thrilled how easily I was able to cut even 1 and a half inch wide branches by myself (I'm not that strong:)
This product works great. I have owned many different loppers seeing i own a professional lawn care service. These by far are the best and take little effort.
Got this through the "daily deal". I love deals. Well, these shears are amazing, sharp and durable. I read the handle breaking but mine are still going strong after some time.
Does a good job on medium jobs.
These are a good value however when using them they tend to get plug up if you allow debris to get into the middle of the shears. For the cost they are good to have.
I have had these lopping shears for a couple of weeks now and they work great. They are nicely balanced and feel very sturdy. The materials used in their construction appear to be durable and well constructed. What stands out to me the most is the sharpness of the blade and ease of cutting. Even thick hardwood branches are cut like butter. Time will tell, but I feel like these will live up to the Craftsman name
Great product at a great price. I recommend this tool for any one looking to trim branches and or cut through a area thick with brush. Works very well.
