Rated 5 out of 5 by from The last loppers you'll ever buy. The PL 40 is strong and durable. The orange cushion grommet will keep you from jarring your wrists when you cut through thick branches.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight and a pleasure to use! The PL 40 Lopper is a very durable,lightweight tool that does the job with ease. You will be amazed at the little effort it takes to cut branches up to 2" in diameter. What I like the most about the PL 40 is the aluminum handles that make it so light. Believe me, this tool is no lightweight when it comes to pruning branches. GREAT value for the price!
