long handled lopping shears

If you have trees or shrubs in your backyard, you’ll appreciate just how much long handled pruning shears can help with general backyard maintenance.

They are ideal for:

  • Reaching high branches without having to resort to using a ladder.
  • Cutting and pruning low down so you don’t have to stoop.
  • Cutting back growth inside a large bush or shrub without you having to get inside it.

The extra leverage provided by longer handles makes pruning and lopping a lot easier on the arms - you don’t need as much arm strength as when you use shorter tools.

If you need to cut through larger wood growth, say up to a couple of inches thick, an anvil cutting set up will be better than a tool using bypass blades.
