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 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.
I'm happy that I bought craftsmans anvil lopping shears. I really appreciate the easy grip cushioned handles and not struggling to get a clean cut.
Very useful for hard to reach branches. good grip handle and able to cut thru half inch branches with not too much trouble. It is an anvil so will not cut the live branches as well as the dried parts.
These loppers are better than my other lopper a half the price. Will cut any branch that will fit in the jaws. I've had no issues with them so far.
The anvil pruners were a great investment. With the Craftsman name, there is a lifetime warranty. The length and sturdiness of the handles and sharpness of the anvil blade makes cutting tree branches easier than with bypass pruners.
Works great for getting at the base of dead limbs in overgrown bushes. It's powerful and sharp, making pruning a lot faster and easier. So far, so good. I hope it holds up well, but I feel better with the Craftsman warranty.
This is the best pair of loppers I have ever purchased. They cut through small branches with ease. The handles are a good length. They make reach easier for a vertically challenged person like myself and give you good leverage.
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.
