Not everyone can afford to pay big bucks for Fiskars, muchless buying them at a garden center's price. Unless you used them at your full time job most of us poor folk have to look elsewhere... More

Try Oxo bypass loppers for bigger limbs and they make smaller hand shears as well. Can't beat them for comfort and they're very well made.

Felco for hand pruners for sure. My wife just got some loppers at QVC. They have a rachet action and will cut a fairly large limb. I was amazed. I'm sorry but I really didn't pay attention to what the brand was. Look for pruners/loppers at QVC.com

Trust CONSUMER REPORTS. They say you get more bang for the buck with CORONA.
