Choosing the best loppers for your home gardening tool kit will make tackling tall bushes, trees, and vines a piece of cake! Loppers are durable gardening shears with extra long handles to reach high up into trees and over the top of large shrubbery safely. They can also eliminate the need for a ladder, which makes gardening even safer. Before we get into the reviews, here are some important features that will help you choose the best loppers to buy.
Length: We start off by letting you know the overall length of each pair of loppers. That way, you can choose the right size for your needs. For telescoping handles, we’ll tell you the range of lengths you can adjust to.
Cutting Capacity: We’ll also let you know the cutting capacity for each lopper. This is the maximum diameter of the branch the lopper can chop through. It sometimes varies depending on if the branches you’re chopping are living branches or dried out ones.
Telescoping: Some loppers we reviewed come with telescoping handles that allow you to adjust the length of the handle to suit your needs. These are a great option if you want one pair that can handle short shrubs and tall trees!
Rust Resistant: We’ll let you know if the blades on each pair of loppers is made with a rust-resistant metal or treated to be corrosive-resistant. Some of the blades are easy to sharpen on your own, which also removes rust or buildup.
Handle Material: If you want a lightweight pair of loppers, go for handles made of materials like aluminum or fiberglass. If you need a heavy-duty pair of loppers that won’t bend when cutting thick branches, choose handles with stainless steel or steel.
Warranty: We all know that bad things happen, but a solid warranty can make fixing the problem easier. If your loppers arrive damaged or break within their warranty period, the company will repair or replace them for you free of charge.
Now that you know all the available features, let’s get into the lopper reviews! We found 10 great pairs of loppers that will keep your gardens and yards looking beautiful all year round.
