I think it's time for some new loppers. I broke mine
Please recommend some HD ones. I bought my wife "MasterCraft" brand from Menards. Yes they were cheap, but I did not think she could hurt them. With only her using them, the blade failed, the cutting edge was "rolling over". I returned them, (Life time warranty) asked if I could, upgrade, buy something better, "no, but here's another pair, no charge"
I then bought her some FISKARS, model L5525 compound loppers, and tossed the MasterCraft loppers.
So I am looking for something HD! I really don't see a need for compound action for me.
I think I got my worth out them
