I have had a lot of pruning shears/loppers and these bad boys are top notch. These fit comfortably in your hands. They are lightweight and would be great for campers. They are part plastic but don't let that turn you away. The design of these makes cutting branches a breeze and boy are they sharp! We cut down a leggy tree today and I used these to trim off all the little branches. They didn't struggle one bit and cut super smooth. I was done in no time! I'd buy everything this company makes! Highly recommended!
From the pictures I would have sworn that these were the same size as the full size loppers that I currently have in my shed. So I didn't know what to expect as far as performance when I pulled them out of the box and saw that they were smaller. Well, I am here to tell you that because of the gear mechanism on the head these have 3x the strength than my larger set of loppers! They are very commercial grade and have an insanely strong build. The blade is very sharp, the handles feel good in your hand, and these can cut 1 1/4" saplings or tree limbs like butter. I love that they have holes in the end of the handles for hanging up when not in use. Also because they are smaller they are much more convenient to haul around. These loppers are guaranteed for life, and the blade has a special onyx coating. They are very strong but lightweight and you don't get fatigued after using them for several hours.
