Buy lopping shears online
Lopping shears are a good investment both for the hobby gardenerand the professional gardener. These are best used for pruning branches which are to thick for smaller secateurs but on the other hand not worth the trouble of cutting them with a saw. The advantage of lopping shears is their quick and powerful cutting of branches up to approx. 40 mm diameter. Obviously the effort required increases with the size of the diameter of the branch. The long handles of the lopping shears produce a powerful leverage so that cutting takes much less effort in comparion to smaller shears..
Lopping shears are very well suited for pruning fruit trees. the slim blades facilitate working through other branches allowing precise cuts.
Blade types of lopping shears
As with the hand shears for gardening, there also are two basic designs of lopping shears:
- Anvil lopping shears: Here the blade cuts towards a base. The cutting material is squeezed between the two and is thus cut off. Particlarly suitable for hard, dry wood..
- Bypass shears: blade and counter-blade slide past each other in a way similar to kitchen scissors. This results in a cut which is more precise than that produced by the anvil principle.Suitable for fresh (green) wood.
