What are the Wolf Garten Telescopic Anvil loppers like to use?

Both the stainless steel cutting blade and metal anvil on these loppers have a non-stick coating for protection and to prevent resin and sap build up. Slender aluminium handles have a non-slip rubber grip and they extend smoothly from 65 to 90cm giving you extra reach as well as leverage when you need it.
They are light, so not difficult to hold above your head when extended and we particularly like the locking holes that help you match both handles into the same position accurately. They are easy to adjust and you can see exactly where to secure them on both handles. The mechanism is also simpler than the twisting design of other telescopic loppers and far less likely to break or get stuck.
All the screws on these loppers are flat so they don’t damage branches and trunks as you cut which we also like and replacement parts are available. These loppers are light and comfortable, extend easily and securely when you need them to and cut cleanly and efficiently with little effort needed

Are the Wolf Garten Telescopic Anvil loppers good value for money?

These powerful loppers were the most expensive in our test but they come with a 10-year warranty and are very well thought and designed. We think they are good value for money.

Who are the Wolf Garten Telescopic Anvil loppers most useful for?

With their extra leverage these are great for gardeners with a weakened grip and the simple and accurate design of the telescopic handles make them ideal for anyone who needs to cut hard to reach branches or prune thick tough wood.
