Excellent lopper. Well constructed. Sharp blades. Makes pruning easy. Works well on branches upto 2-2.5” only grouse is that at its narrowest the blades sit pretty wide, consequently, it’s tough to open the blades at their widest if one is reaching out for the higher branches when using the telescopic feature. I suppose if one had extremely broad shoulders then that’s no problem, else it can get awkward and clumsy. So 4.5 stars. Happy with the product.
