From The Manufacturer

The Spear & Jackson Razorsharp Heavy Duty Telescopic Ratchet Anvil Lopper is ideal for cutting thicker and harder branches and easily handles a branch 2-inch (50mm) in diameter. These loppers feature a ratchet action which provides a mechanical advantage by advancing the spring loaded cutting blade towards the anvil blade in short steps to complete the cut with a minimum of effort. The PTFE coated SK5 carbon steel cutting blade gives lasting sharpness, reduces friction during cutting and provides resistance to rust. The anvil blade is made from a softer metal to avoid damage to the cutting blade and is serrated to stop the branch twisting during the cut. Our simple to operate ‘twist & lock’ telescopic handles extend from 15.75″ (400mm) to 31.5″ (800mm) for additional reach when required and are made from tubular aluminium to remain as light as possible without compromising on strength. The handles are finished with soft-feel non-slip grips for comfort and safety during use.
