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.
This product made the job easier for quick disposal
This is a good sturdy lopper, and really sharp. I use it to trim up my trees and then cut the mid sized limbs into firewood sized pieces to burn in my firepit . Cutting big limbs takes some exertion, but it works as advertised
Looks good on picture but very cheaply made
I use them all the time
Blade is sharp and cuts through branches easily.
I needed a new pair of shears to help clean up my property so I decided to try out the new ones that Sears had that where made by craftsman. I have been working with these shears for a month now and I have to say that these are the best ones that I have ever used. They are so easy to close on bigger branches and my wife also has no problem cutting branches twice the size that my old one's could cut. If you are on the fence about buying these please just give them a try because they are really good.
Used this to prune and trim a ton of trees and hedges around my property. Cut with ease and made nice and clean cuts. Never struggled with branches, even some ones that were pretty thick.
