Fiskars PowerGear Bypass Lopper offers 32 inches of pure lopper goodness. This superior-grade tool is lighter, stronger, and more powerful than anything you've ever used. A unique gearing mechanism multiplies the cutting force by nearly three times over single pivot loppers and the smooth action eliminates the jarring conclusion at the end of cuts. Includes razor-sharp, precision-ground blades. The bypass-blade design provides for cutting living growth and has a 2-inch cutting capacity.
When pruning, the weight of the tool and the position of the hand and fingers can cause tension and stress, resulting in muscle and joint strain. When ergonomics are given prime importance in design, the result is products that require less muscle power and reduce joint strain.
The goal of the Fiskars' design team was to increase power, reduce effort and minimize weight – in short, to make pruning easier. The solution was a totally new gear mechanism that provides maximum leverage near the middle of the cut, when resistance is the greatest. That means a more compact tool can cut with a fraction of the effort required by larger single-pivot tools.
The use of reinforced fiberglass composite materials (FiberComp) allowed for lighter handles to further reduce strain and fatigue while maintaining strength and durability.
