Cut through thick branches that you would not be able to cut with traditional pruners and loppers. This Super Pruner is smaller and lighter than other loppers, reducing strain on your hands, wrists and muscles when you are reaching to cut a branch or have a lot of branches to cut. Sharp, precision-ground blade edge. Awarded the Ease-of-Use Commendation by the Arthritis Foundation.
