We've looked at hundreds of these; virtually all are completely manufactured in Taiwan or China and perform just adequately.

These two are different, made to Garrett Wade's standards. They use a special ratcheting mechanism (double ratcheting in the case of the Anvil Pruner), oversized for strength, and equipped with a coated blade. To this they add telescoping handles (26 to 40" long with 6 pin-locked position stops and rubber grips). Cutting jaw capacity is 2 to 2-1/2". If you are looking for a lifetime arborist's quality tool, look no further.

We cannot recommend these enough for heavy work: they are superb. The Anvil Pruner is designed for cutting dry wood and the Bypass Pruner for green wood, you'll need both types.

  • Very Good Quality

    Hooyah524, 11/11/2015 These are truly good loppers. My first order of anvil loppers had broken one of the gears, but I'm not sure what happened because my wife was using it at the time. I returned them thinking she couldn't have enough strength to break them ( yeah, yeah, I know it's a sexist comment). Anyway, I return them with no questions asked. In time, I realized that I really missed them, so I reordered another of the offered pair. I'm happy with them...again. Only now I don't loan them to anyone; especially "you know who".
  • Very Pleased..

    Mike R., 9/8/2015 So far I'm well pleased with this product. Check back after Fall pruning. cmr
  • Bought For A Gift To My Son

    Patricia Huffman, 7/31/2015 This garden tool seemed like the work horse for the garden we were looking for. I bought it as a birthday gift for my son. He recommended Garrett Wade products to me.
  • Best I Have Used By Far

    Reid A, 7/16/2015 I have used the bypass loppers for almost five years and with over four thousand varied fruit trees in our orchards they have held up extremely well: no problems whatsoever and our Vietnamese workers are very very impressed that they have lasted so long. When I return to Canada I will definitely buy more to bring back.
  • Pruners

    Clifton Brown, 7/16/2015 Both of these pruners are very well made and easy to use. They feel very solid and should last for a very long time.
  • Excellent Loppers

    John Lyon, 7/7/2015 These are a great set of anvil pruning loppers. I bought them to replace a set that had fiberglass handles that broke in use. The aluminum handles in these loppers seem much more sturdy to me. I also appreciate the fact that the handles telescope to extend my reach. The blade is very sharp and the ratcheting mechanism greatly increases the cutting force that can be applied. I am very pleased with this product!
  • Get The Job Done

    Ann, 7/6/2015 I use these loppers to prune tress and shrubs around the house and to also cut back mesquite and other brush off of roadways. They are quite sturdy and seem to be well made. So far I would say that they are the best loppers I've ever owned.
  • The Best Yet

    Michael Young, 6/23/2015 I read reviews by others prior to ordering these loppers. The only ones that concerned me was one which stated that there were cheap plastic parts in high stress areas. If there are those parts they must be of Delrin Plastic. I used these right out of the box to replace my sprung loppers which have been straightened twice and are showing stress lines at the blade bases. The anvil cut lopper was used on dry red oak, ash, ash, red cedar, and maple. If the branch fits into the considerably wide jaws it will cut. It may take two or three resets of the ratchet mechanism, but that is quick and intuitive after the first use. The bypass blade lopper was used to cut the same wood pieces, just smaller green branches. Again, the ratchet mechanism had to reset itself up to three times for thick branches, but they all cut easily and cleanly- and close enough to the trunk so that the wounds will heal quickly. The extension of the handles was a worry. I was sure that the increased length would bow or worse, bend the handles. Neither lopper bent and the bow caused by heavy branches was not enough to really concern me. One nice feature is that the mouth opening remains the same with the arms fully extended. The ratchet mechanism proved itself right there. I have only used these loppers for a total of six hours, but they haven't failed me yet and the work got done quietly without the danger inherent in chainsaws or the flukes common to reciprocal saws.
  • Toughest of the Lot

    Gordon White, 5/18/2015 Just received and immediately put to use. Both of the loppers are awesome! They cut through branches my other loppers would never be able to. They are not cheap but well worth the price.
  • Lopper Love

    Judy Cafmeyer, 5/15/2015 These loppers are really wonderful!!! The ratchet feature and extension handles makes pruning trees and bushes much easier and certainly within my reach!""
  • Premium Pruning Loppers

    Scott, 5/14/2015 On large branches, these anvil loppers do the job. The ratchet moves right through dry and green wood fairly quickly. Only faster way would be to use a chain saw, but not very practical when trying to make clean cuts. Good value.
  • Did Not Disappoint

    Tom Harvey, 5/5/2015 Very high quality and worked as expected. Love the telescoping handles. Well thought out products.
  • Gear Failure

    DAG, 4/5/2015 Works great on larger green limb that other loppers are a struggle. Avoid dry and hard limbs. The internal gear is only light cast metal or plastic, it fails under extreme hard and dry material rendering the loppers useless, no repair or parts available.
  • Great Product

    Carl, 3/19/2015 I bought both the by-pass loppers and the anvil cutters. I ordered them before reading the reviews so when I did read them I was worried by the negative reviews. I need not have worried. I had an apple tree that I had let go for a few years and needed trimming way back. While nothing would make the job easy they did they job perfectly, handling limbs up to 2 inches (I measured) without balking. I would highly recommend either or both. Afterward I ordered Garret Wade's carbide sharpening stone which brought them and my old by-pass lopper back to sharp like new in minutes. Very pleased...sore but pleased.
  • Smooth Cut, Versatile, Easy To Use For An Amateur

    Gordon Kulberg, 3/1/2015
  • Anvil Lopper

    R. Monte, 2/23/2015 The loppers work great until they don't. The anvil loppers have a gear inside its frame that makes everything work once that gear breaks which didn't seem that hard to do you can't fix it. Not so heavy duty as they would have you think.
  • Had Problems

    Liz from LaGrange, 2/7/2015 My bypass loppers only lasted two years. The plastic inside the extension handles disintegrated. The loppers really worked great while intact.
  • Heavy Duty Anvil Lopper

    Larry Stivers, 1/19/2015 Functionally, this a great set of loppers. I've saved a lot of time and strained muscles over firing up my my chain saw for 2-3 branches or trying to cut them with small, light-duty loppers. I rated these at 4-stars (rather than five) because one handle routinely slides off the handle attachment on the cutting head. Whatever holds the handle on is out of sight up inside the top of the handle. If I cannot find a better option, I will have to put a screw through the outside of the top of the handle into a hole in the attachment...a pity to have to do "shade-tree" repairs on such otherwise well\made equipment."
  • Awesome Loppers

    Stephen McLaughlin, 12/30/2014 Right out of the box the high quality of the bypass loppers was very apparent. The construction is top notch. The telescoping handles work smoothly and clicked readily into place. They cut through tree limbs like butter. For some bigger limbs the ratcheting mechanism worked flawlessly. I would highly recommend these loppers
  • Very Satisfied

    Carl Youse, 12/14/2014 These are the best thing since Bubble Gum! So easy to use and well worth it's money!
  • Best Clippers Ever

    Bill, 12/13/2014 Purchased these for my wife and the are the best we have ever used. Easy for her but heavy enough for me to cut bigger limbs. The expandable handles allow us to reach limbs without a ladder.
  • GW Pruning Loppers

    Miller Ross, 12/11/2014 Both the anvil and bypass loppers are built rugged for heavy duty use. The extension handles enable a user to reach higher while pruning. The loppers are top quality and should last for years
  • Very Good Pruner

    Ken Stevens, 12/10/2014 The extendable handles give you leverage when you need it but still lets you work in tight places when you don't. Very good capacity on green wood.
  • Worst Ever

    Yard Worker, 12/9/2014 Bought as a gift, used once, cut two 2 inch diameter limbs and on the third the mechanism inside a gift no receipt was given so no replacement is available. Product looks better than it performs !!!
  • The Best Yard Care Item Ever

    Terri, 12/5/2014
  • Great Loppers

    Eric Z., 11/28/2014 Fantastic Loppers. Absolutely the best I have ever owned. Excellent quality. Time to go do some trimming!
  • Great Loppers

    Loudy, 11/22/2014 I've owned these loppers for approximately two months and have used them extensively cutting over-growth bushes and trees. Thought I had broken them several times, but no way. These loppers are tough tools and easy to work with. Bought them as a pair and very glad I did. Highly recommend them.
  • Diane Dahlgaard, 11/16/2014 We have a lot of trees on our property, so we need good equipment that is easy to use. My husband likes how easily the handles adjust & also the quality with which they are made. We will definitely shop for other tool needs here.
  • Anvil Lopper Blade Replacement

    Don Windle, 9/27/2014 Great service! I couldn't figure out how to install the new blade. Joe in technical talked me through it after emailing instructions. Now my Lopper works great again!
  • A Landscapers Greatest Purchase

    Andrea, 9/1/2014 I used a friends pair of loppers and decided to get a pair of my own.These are the sharpest and most durable of all the pruners I have. I can use them for hours and my arms don't get tired. The ratcheting mechanism helps cut through bigger branches like butter!
  • Works For Many

    Jane Richardson, 8/23/2014 Salem Housing's Community Tool Shed lends tools to volunteers all over the city of Flint. We are down-sized" community with many vacant properties. Volunteers are caring for this land - this is our third set of these powerful loppers - and they really make the difference."
  • Lopper Heaven

    Mike Irving, 8/14/2014 The Trail Blazer lopper is more than expected. It takes the place of a small chainsaw, therefor, it is much safer.
  • Highest Quality

    Ron, 7/25/2014 These are the best pruning tools I have ever seen or used. They cut clean and have heft and weight behind each cut. You feel like they could cut anything. The anvil lopper looks and feels like it could cut kryptonite even though it was designed for dead wood.
  • Premium Bypass Loppers

    Judith, 7/20/2014 The loppers arrived last week and today, were put to the test. They made quick work of demolishing two old shrubs that were slated for removal. They performed beautifully and will make a grand addition to my garden tool arsenal.
  • The Best Loppers

    Bob Nicholas, 7/19/2014 We have had a pair of these anvil loppers for years. They are essential for heavy duty lopping. Even though they work as well as ever, some months ago we decided to get a backup because excellent products that never wear out may not make enough profit to be made in the future. Our local stores were unable to find or order them. Garrett Wade not only had them but had a sale on them and their companion loppers! Thank You! Sincerely, Bob Nicholas
  • Great Loppers

    Paul, 7/2/2014 I am so pleased with these loppers. After struggling with lighter weight, non-ratcheting loppers, it is so easy to cut branches and to clear up fallen limbs. These two loppers are so easy to use and cut with. I highly recommend them.
  • Loppers

    Virginia Hoskins, 6/12/2014 My loppers were replaced by Joe Wolfe. An excellent person.
  • Anvil Lopper

    Faye Jackson, 4/27/2014 Best lopper I have ever used, I am 75 and I can cut limbs as large as is recommended for this tool.
  • Best Lopper Ever!!!

    Ben, 4/23/2014 The performance of these loppers far surpassed my expectations. I trimmed/sculpted and ornamental tree and removed an enormous overgrown bush. The loppers were excellent for removing very small tree branches as well as 2 plus trunks of bush. The ratchet mechanism is smooth and effortless. Fully extended, the handles added leverage and were very solid. All descriptions on website are understated. Truly a fine tool. Can't wait for my next lopping!"
  • Best Lopper!

    Kathleen Thom, 3/17/2014 We have an on-going trimming project with 3 Mesquite trees in our back yard. This is the *best one I've ever used! Love the 40 inch extension. The ratcheting gear takes all the stress away from my neck & shoulders when cutting through thick branches. It cuts through them, like butter! In the past, tree trimming was literally *a pain in the neck, no more!
  • Pruning Made Easy

    Dennis Frederick, 3/4/2014 The first thing I noticed when I got the package was how well made these things were heavy strong and comfortable to handle. They bi-pass loppers quickly and easily removed branches 2'' thick with just a little pressure. the anvil loppers cut dead wood just a smoothly. These loppers are the best investment I have made to date. I would recommend Garrett Wade products to anyone. Money well spent.
  • Loppers

    Lana, 2/22/2014 The anvil loppers are outstanding! But the smaller loppers were defective. However, Joe Wolfe contacted me instantly and took care of me replacing the defective loppers. Customer service could not be better! Thanks! I'm making my second purchase tomorrow!
  • Awesome

    Ray Hein, 2/16/2014 Both work as stated. Fast clean cuts,easy to use,you wont go wrong with any product from Garrett Wade.
  • Anvil Lopper

    Tami Homen, 2/5/2014 I have used a lot of loppers in the last 20 years but the Anvil Lopper (by Trail Blazer) was indeed the best; worked the best EVER! I have not had any problems with the gears failing but the pin that extends the handle broke on one handle and the other is cracked. It isn't like I use these a lot but I would not have thought this part would be a problem and finding a replacement part has been difficult.

    Response By: Garrett Wade Tech Department
    Thank you for your review on the Heavy Duty Anvil Lopper. We are sorry to hear that you had this problem. Please contact our 1-800 number and ask to speak with our technician. He will be able to assist you. We are sorry for the inconvenience.
  • Gear Failure

    Bud, 1/8/2014 Worked very nicely at first, then had problems with them hanging up, not wanting to ratchet sometimes. After about 3yrs quit working, due to ratchet gear breaking in half as others have posted.
  • Best Loppers Ever!

    Sharon, 1/4/2014 These pruning loppers are the best. Having the telescoping handles makes reaching high limbs easy without having to stand on a ladder (I'm just unstable on a ladder!) I can cut both large and small diameter limbs easily since the loppers ratchet closed. They are sharp and make smooth cuts. I've recommend them to anyone who needs to clip limbs and small bushes or shrubs in their yard.
  • Top Loppers

    Marjorie J. Burns, 12/18/2013 I bought both loppers, liked them so much I bought two more to give as gifts. Last month I bought yet another gift lopper. It's a way of spreading the word.
  • Anvil Lopper Failure

    Bill C, 11/24/2013 The ratcheting mechanism in my Anvil Pruner/Lopper failed after a few months of moderate (home owner) use. It was interesting to see other reviewers had similar problems with the tool. I cannot recommend this item & suggest you remove it from your inventory of otherwise excellent products.
  • Loppers

    Greg Johnson, 11/11/2013 Ordered pair of pruners used several times the ratcheting one blade broke after several uses. Can not find who made them to get replace blade really pleased if cutting blade was heavier. Thanks.
  • Disappointing

    Jonathan, 10/19/2013 I really expected great quality out of these loppers after I read some of the reviews. While only experiencing light to moderate duty, one of the handles on the bypass lopper became totally disconnected from the rest of it. Yikes! Also, the anvil lopper is not good because you have to ratchet it back and forth, and back and forth, to finally get your cut. My Asian-made lopper from the local hardware store performed better than these. I would not recommend these loppers to anyone.
  • Weak Handles

    Dan Harriger, 8/18/2013 Ratchet cutters work fine. Heavier pair cuts through anything that fits in the jaws. However, be careful using either pair with the handles extended. They will bend and deform causing problems on retracting the handles back to their shorter length. I was concerned that they might also break. Use with handles extended only on lighter cutting tasks.
  • Cannot Locate the Manufacturer

    Farzad Etemadamini, 7/20/2013 The ratchet gear broker after less than year of normal use (never gave the unit more than a 1.5 inch diameter branch). I can understand that failures happen, but there is no way to locate the manufacturer on the Web!? That's very strange in this day and age. Perhaps they are out of business? In any event, I would go with another brand of lopper whose manufacturer has Web presence..

    Response By: Garrett Wade Tech Department

Please get in touch with our customer service department at 1-800-221-2942 and ask to speak with our technician.
  • Product May Be Better Than This Review

    James L. Mson, 7/16/2013 Though lopper was used only briefly on just one occasion, it was purchased from you around 2 years ago and I realize it is much too late to complain or ask for any adjustment. Though this product failed me miserably, somehow I still believe it has the potential to be a much better tool than my experience indicates. Against my better judgement,I like the possibility of this lopper so much that I may gamble that this was just a fluke and buy the product again and pray for better results the second time around.
  • Sorry I didn't return these

    ProfRex, 7/3/2013 I have a few loppers around the property and it was past the return date before I gave up on this product. The head is heavy and the arms are light. Not only is the balance poor, but the arms bent, fell out of the socket joint with the head, and have cheesy plastic parts. The ratchet style cutter requires the handles to open so wide you can't get into bushes or dense growth to make a cut at the base of a branch. The ratchet mechanism is a poor, over-engineered excuse for a properly leveraged cutter like the far less expensive ones common at hardware stores, which I've used for years. This product broke in weeks.
  • Quality Design and Assembly

    Laszlo de Simon, 6/30/2013 I finally splurged and treated myself to this excellent tool. As a believer in good tools make for more efficient work I was very satisfied with the quality of assembly and engineering that went into making this such an excellent piece of equipment. I highly recommend purchasing this tool, as it gets the job done with amazing power and ease.
  • Best Loppers Ever

    Sue, 6/24/2013 As soon as my new loppers arrived I put them to use. They are by far the best I've used. The telescoping mechanism works very well and they go right through thick branches that I would have had to pull out the pruning saw for with my old loppers. They look like they'll be easy to sharpen and lubricate also. There is a small spring that is part of the ratcheting mechanism that is somewhat exposed, so I would be somewhat careful not to get dirt in there.
  • One Part Failed

    Roger G., 6/16/2013 The button to adjust the length of the handle does not lock into place. The handle moves freely. this makes it difficult to use lopper. Is there any way to adjust or repair this problem?
  • Outstanding Customer Service

    Stan Alekna, 6/15/2013 Garrett Wade made everything right. I wish I could erase my original review because they went over and above.
  • Anvil Lopper

    Steve Jewell, 6/13/2013 I bought both loppers I am a landscaper and have had several loppers over the years , the bypass lopper is the best you can buy anywhere.the extending handles are great. the anvil lopper is very heavy-duty, handles ,mechanism, everything except the blade, it is too thin and the edge rippled the first time I used it, would be great if they did not cheap out on the blade.
  • Device Failed

    Stan Alekna, 6/7/2013 Purchased lopper in 2008 and used it very little. Ratchet mechanism no longer works so it's worthless and I can't find anyone to repair it. Just my experience.

    Response By: Garrett Wade Tech Department
    Thank you for your review on the Heavy Duty Bypass Lopper. We are sorry to hear that it malfunctioned so quickly. We've sold many of these without a problem so we think you may have received a defective one.  A replacement is on its way to you. We apologize for the inconvenience.
  • Pruner/Lopper Set

    Pete C, 4/6/2013 As the name of my city attests, we have quite a number of trees and large bushes in constant need of pruning and thinning. Recently I purchased the set of pruners/loppers. In a word, both of these are fantastic. The adjustable handles provide additional leverage force when needed. The large loppers easily cut through 3 thick dead, dried-wood branches with ease. My older loppers would bog down in much thinner wood and were not adjustable in length, my older loppers are in the trash. A very good buy and worth the price."
  • Best Lopper I Own

    John, 2/25/2013 I already owned the dry wood lopper. I used it to cut branches up on a large pin oak I recently cut down. After extensive use I managed to damage it by cutting branches beyond its capability. Desperate to complete the job, I disassembled the lopper, filed down burrs on the blade mechanism, reassembled it to find out it worked just like new. I decided to purchase this set as a spare to have if this should happen again. I would not spend the money if I didn't feel that these loppers are the best ones on the market. I have seen replacement blades sold separately on the internet as well.
  • Test of time quality

    G Nordstrom, 2/20/2013 I wanted to wait a while before I wrote my review - and I rarely write reviews. After almost two years of use, my bypass loppers are working as flawlessly as when they were brand new. The ratcheting feature is a great advantage when working with larger limbs and the extending handles gives me the extra reach I need to keep the ladder in the garage. They are heavy duty and high quality. The price is a bargain when you compare them to the quality of others. Personally, I prefer a bypass cutter and I would recommend them for a clean cut.
  • Anvil lopper

    Hd Sumner, 2/17/2013 Definitely heavy duty. However, a Maple limb 2.75 in diameter did get cut, but bent one handle near the hinge. It still works well. Suggest frequent lubrication.

    Response By: Garrett Wade Tech Department
    Thank you for reviewing this item. We're sorry to hear that the handle bent. Please feel free to exchange it for another. We apologize for the inconvenience. "
  • Quality

    Don, 1/21/2013 Top-quality. The best pruners I have ever owned.
  • Quality Loppers

    James Pauley, 1/4/2013 I researched everywhere and these were the most versatile and highest in quality I could find. A real value buy.
  • Thankful

    Cathy Smith, 10/24/2012 These pruners are wonderful - my husband and I have a hard time cutting branches with regular pruners - these ratcheting pruners have been the best thing for both of us - they are so wonderful make my job so much easier that I ordered a set for my son - my neighbor kept asking to borrow ours because they were easier for her to use so I bought a set for her. I tell everyone about these tools.
  • Testing

    Robert Anderson, 8/24/2012 Tools work very well as designed. Seems to be made very well. Will need more time to see how they hold up under extreme use. I have used them for several days now and they cut like they just came out of the box.
  • Best Pruners

    Mery Valencia, 5/18/2012 I had many other pruners and really this is the BEST it chops like magic and they are well made too.
  • Ahead of the alders

    William De Armond, 4/13/2012 After years of trying to battle the brush, alders and salmonberry particularly, that grows uproariously in the SE Alaska spring, with cheap hardware-store pruners etc., I decided to go for these high-quality tools, and am glad I did. The difference is remarkable; one more reminder that quality tools are worth the price. With these and a small saw (now on order) the brush hasn't got a chance!
  • Volunteer's Helper

    Larry Bush, 3/30/2012 I volunteer at the Desert Botanical Garden and bought a Heavy Duty By-Pass Lopper. I'm in my 70's and these loppers have made trimming trees easier with the ratcheting action. I plan to get the Anvil Loppers next.
  • Easier Work

    Kenneth Hutchings, 2/8/2012 These are pruners are very well made. We have used the smaller loppers already and are quite pleased with them. The larger lopper will have to wait until Spring. They are a smashing hit with our family. Thank you.
  • Sloppy cut

    Frank Green, 1/29/2012 The loppers don't cut cleanly. The blades don't close tight, so even when the blade is razor sharp, a tough branch will separate the blades a the bottom of the cut. That leaves a torn branch, which invites infection. I don't see a way to tighten the blades.

    Response By: Garrett Wade Tech Department
    We are very sorry to hear that the loppers were unsatisfactory. Would you like to send them back and try another pair which our technician will inspect upon request? A return label should have come with your package. If it did not, please let us know and we will mail one right out to you. The replacement will be looked over to make sure they are not defective. Alternately, you may request a refund.

    Also,  please feel free to call our 1-800 number and ask to speak with the technician. He may be able to answer your questions about the blades not closing tightly.

    Again, we are very sorry for the inconvenience.
  • Rocky Mt. Trail Work

    Andy Clark, 1/23/2012 I was initially impressed with the solid feel and with the ratcheting action. However, after about 1 hour of use, the spring loaded button that locks one of the arms failed. I sent the loppers back.
  • Great loppers

    Carl, 1/22/2012 I gave my son the bypass loppers for Christmas. Here are his comments: Not only is the ratcheting mechanism on those loppers cool, but the extending capability works really well, and fast. It only takes a couple of seconds to change the length and you hardly even have to think about it (except for how neat it is to do).
  • Best Loppers Yet!

    Bob Castor, 11/18/2011 I have a lot of trees and bushes on my property. I have owned 4 other ratcheting loppers and about 10 non-ratcheting ones over 25 years here. These are the best. I've used the anvil style to fill my outdoor fire-pit and for inside kindling. Recently, the bypass style came in handy for cutting pine and fir greens for wreaths.
  • Great tool!!

    Peter DiPietro, 10/5/2011 We have several old oak trees on our property and the dead limbs are impossible to cut. These loppers are so good, my wife uses them all the time to trim trees. She says this is the best tool ever"."
  • Ratchet Broke

    James, 6/30/2011 I bought the anvil pruner last fall and have used it to cut a lot of branches with little difficulty. Today, as I attempted to cut a dead 1 branch the ratchet mechanism broke, effectively making the pruner useless. Lest anyone think I applied too much pressure, I am a 70 year old, 140 lb. desk jockey. Not a lot of power in those biceps!"
  • Heavy Duty and Strong

    David Gross, 6/19/2011 I bought these last December and then winter came before I could try them out. A bit heavy when extended at arms length, but the mass seems to provide needed durability and power, too. I've been pruning up a storm with clean cuts on branches and brush that I wouldn't even attempt with other tools that I have used. Pumping" the tool and using the ratchet for extra leverage gets the job done without over-stressing the extended handles or your arms. I don't know how I lived without them. Yes, the neighbors like them, too. They're bullet-proof."
  • Premium??

    Phil, 6/16/2011 I had the same bad experience as Jim from Iowa did, only it didn't take 20 minutes until my handle fell off; it only took 5 minutes. I cut exactly 6 branches when the handle came off. Where is the quality control? I bought the Bypass pruner. Would not recommend it.

  • Double the fun!

    Michael, 6/14/2011 I bought the pruning loppers as a gift for a friend. My friend raved abouth them! Now I bought them for me. Happy Father's Day to me!
  • Loppers

    Don Hyson, 4/19/2011 I just received the loppers and have not yet used them. However, they appear to be quality built and should serve me well. They were less expensive than others I looked at and seem to be as good or better than higher priced loppers.
  • Must Have Loppers!

    Happy Gardener, 4/16/2011 Purchased last summer was immediately impressed by the size and craftsmanship then put them to the test around the farm pruning and lopping many trees and shrubs. I don't have much hand strength so I have always struggled with pruning. Not any more! I even wrote green" and "dry" on the handle so others would know which to use and not damage them when trying to "help". "
  • Premium? loppers

    Jim, 4/11/2011 Well, they looked pretty. Cut pretty well for about 20 minutes and then the handle fell off. Basically the pruner tang no longer engaged" inside the handle. For the life of me, I couldn't tell what had come disconnected as nothing appeared broken. It just wouldn't stay on. Used it until frustration set in as the handle kept falling off. Good news: Garrett Wade customer service was excellent and is sending me a new one. Hopefully THIS pair will be Premium loppers!"
  • Trailblazer loppers

    Marshall Hammond, 3/16/2011 There loppers live up to their name of Trail Blazer. I am a volunteer trail builder in our region and spend many hours building and repairing multi use trails on public lands through IMBA and the local bicycle club. I have found these loppers the best in their class for both green and dried limbs, brush and small trees. The telescoping handles add to their functionality by allowing extended reach without sacrificing leverage. I have recommended these to the club for our trail tool inventory.
  • They are what they look like!!

    M. Dimon, 1/2/2011 These things are massive, mean-cuttin son of a guns. They feel like they will last longer then me! Well designed!! GREAT PRODUCT!!! Your neighbors will envy.
  • A Cut Above!

    Michael, 12/17/2010 This a great pair of loppers! Great design and quality workmanship. Way to go Canada. Oh my, not from China?
  • The Best

    Leeroy Tracy, 12/11/2010 Well worth the money, the best loppers I have ever had! Nice quality tools.
  • Dynamic Duo

    Neil Vanik, 12/5/2010 I've reached that age when I want it right more than I want it cheap. These pruners really caught my eye, as replacements for my motley collection of pruners. The handle adjustments are fantastic, super fast, positive locks and exposed for lubrication as necessary. The blade heads are all business and the ratcheting action makes me fear for the trees"."
  • Loppers and jumbo pole pruner worth the $

    DeeAnna, 6/25/2010 I purchased the anvil and bypass loppers as a set along with the jumbo pole pruner (11G13.03). I am pleased with all three tools. We have used a variety of loppers to maintain our wooded property over the years. Some work okay, others (including name-brand expensive ones) have failed miserably. My husband and I are getting a lot of use out of all three tools -- each has its own particular strengths. These loppers both have extensible handles and ratchet mechanisms. Both of these features allow an average person to cut fairly thick branches with reasonable ease. If you are cutting something pretty light, you might not know there is a ratchet mechanism in the lopper. The ratchet engages when making a heavier cut, so you don't have to cut through a limb all in one go. Pull the handles together ... hear a click when the jaws lock in place ... open the handles ... pull again ... click ... repeat until the cut is complete. The extensible handles have two advantages: they lengthen your reach, and they give you more leverage to accomplish a tough cut. I was working close up with the handles in their shortest length and could not cut the 2 canes of a tough dogwood shrub -- I just did not have enough strength to pull the handles together. I lengthened the handles and the extra leverage allowed me to get the job done. If you can only buy one lopper, decide how you will use the lopper the most -- quick 'n dirty -or- careful and precise. If you will use the loppers mostly to prune living trees or shrubs, the bypass lopper will cut closer and be more precise. If you want the loppers for quickly turning big chunks into little ones, the anvil lopper will be faster and a little easier."
  • Cuts like a knife through butter

  • Great Product

    Roncalli, 5/21/2010 Bought a set a few years ago, and use them all the time particularly the bypass lopper to lop branches off felled trees and cut my way through dense brush and thorn bushes. I have used the loppers so much that I am about to buy a replacement, since the cutter is worn out and not sold separately (or I'd just buy another cutter, the rest of the tool shows essentially no significant wear). Also be nice if someone would make a ninja scabbard so that the loppers could be carried over the back, they are somewhat bulky to carry around, tiring to carry after several hours of cutting through small trees and brush. Overall an excellent product especially for anyone who expects to do more than occasional pruning.
  • Premium Indeed

    Carlee's Grandpa, 5/17/2010 I bought both these loppers. I already had high quality, professional grade loppers, but thought I'd try these because they are said to have a higher capacity (able to cut thicker wood), and they were on sale at the time. I am very glad I bought them. Except in soft woods, the bypass loppers do not handle thicker branches than my other loppers, but in general they cut somewhat easier. The anvil loppers are exceptional. The ratcheting action really works to easily cut thru hard and dead wood, even that up to 2-1/2 or so. The extendable handles are handy and positive-locking; they will not work loose in use. Both loppers are a little heavy, but you'll get a lot done with them. They are quality-built and worth the money."
  • Excellent tool

    Bob, 4/26/2010 Have had anvil and bypass loppers for years - basically excellent tools. Telescoping pin-locks eventually slip after use, which is annoying. No adequate instructions available for sharpening these tools, either on-line or from customer service (non-responsive to specific requests for info - poor business practice!).
  • Powerful

    Gene, 4/17/2010 power and sharpness...easy and quick handle length adjustment...heft gives confidence and promises durability
  • Awesome loppers

    Molly, 4/15/2010 I've had my loppers for 2 years and I absolutely love them. They are so versatile and allow me (I'm kinda small) to do big jobs with ease.I consider them essential.
  • Best Ever !!

    Tom Michaels, 4/15/2010 These loppers are the best I have ever used. They cut with very little effort. The ratcheting system helps you cut large branches with ease. I've even taken down some small tress with the larger set. Very impressive cutters that are worth the money.
  • The job is done

    Dave Harris, 4/15/2010 These tools make the work of pruning mid size trees a dream come true... They do the job with little effort... A pleasure to work with.
  • Loppers

    David L. Kreutzinger, 4/14/2010 These loppers are twice the price of local hardware stores so I expected the best. They perform very well and all the features work the ratchet mechanism and the extendable handles were particularly advantageous and are a big improvement over what is available at a big box store. However, there was no quality control as the self locking screws used to secure the mechanism covers were loose on the heavy duty anvil loppers. Glade to see these were a product of Canada.
  • Great gift for son

    Jeanne, 4/14/2010 My son loves gardening so I gave him these loppers last Christmas as a gift. He was so pleased with them as they have the long arms to reach high branches and are made well.
  • Awesome!

    VA Gardener, 4/14/2010 Finally, a tool that really can handle the tough stuff! My husband got these for me for my birthday and I love them!

  • Excellent Loppers

    Joe Stefanko, 4/7/2010 I've been doing a lot of cleaning up and these loppers have been a big help. I am very pleased with them, and feel that they have been well worth the money.
  • Lopper shears

    Peter , 11/13/2009 This Anvil Lopper product is exceptional. I have cut beach saplings at ground level on several acres of forest land. At times I have to use the handle extension for extra leverage. There shears are truly professional and last for years in a semi industrial forest setting.
  • Great Customer Relations

    D.S.Fuller, 7/13/2009 First I ordered the Bypass Model but before it arrived I decided that I really should get the whole set,so I called and asked if I was able to get the anvil model and make it part of the special price offer for the set. They did this and were very courteous...Thanks Melanie & Another Gal,That unfortunately I didn't get her name
  • Great for Women

    Kim Lombardi, 4/30/2009 These loppers are great for women because of the ratcheting mechanism. Very easy to cut large branches by backing off on the handle and letting the tool do the work. I loaned them to my neighbors, both elderly women, who loved them so much they bought their own. Anvil lopper takes some getting use to, but a great value for a great tool.
  • Very Good

    Bill, 4/15/2009 Highly recommended
  • Love Those Loppers

    Neil, 4/14/2009 A friend told me about these loppers, and I took his advice and ordered both versions. The extendable handles make the product special for me, and when you then experience the cutting strength, you'll know why it is my favorite tool.
