What are the Fiskars Power Gear X Anvil Lopper LX9 like to use?

The blade on these Fiskars loppers is made from stainless steel and has a PTFE coating for added protection, while the metal anvil is curved to help you hook onto a branch and hold it in place while you cut. The cutting width is wide at 55cm and a geared cutting mechanism helps you cut through dense, tough wood with less effort. Long, narrow handles are made from light aluminium with rubber grips and they feel comfortable and easy in the hands. They have a hanging hole in the handles for easy storage.
These powerful loppers cut even thick, dense branches easily and cleanly. The long handles give great reach and leverage and they are not at all chunky or clunky to hold or use. They are versatile and efficient and great for all heavy-duty pruning jobs.
