The Siena Garden -Pro Alu Bypass Lopper telescoped Pro Alu Bypass Branch Shears is well suited for the garden and different branches. Even harder wood can be cut well and the transmission, as well as the telescopic arms, are very helpful. Also, the rubber coating is very pleasant, because it is not only on one side of the handle, but encloses the complete hand part. This prevents it from slipping off quickly. However, the weight of over 1.5 kg is negative. If you work a lot in heights, the loppers is a bit heavy in the long run.
The Siena Garden -Pro Alu Bypass Lopper telescoped Pro Alu Bypass Branch Shears has two labels which give brief information about the shears. In small pictograms, the maximum branch thickness, the translation power and the possibility to change the arm length are described. There is also an indication that these loppers are suitable for cutting fresh wood.
The loppers fit well in the hand and the rubber coating around the handle ensures a good grip even in wet conditions. With approx. 1.5 kg the loppers are relatively heavy but you can work well with them.
These loppers have a kind of transmission (also called gear). The arms open wide, the power needed for cutting is distributed over a longer distance, which makes the work easier. When the arms are compressed, the upper round blade glides past the lower unsharpened but ribbed blade. There is no rubber stopper near the arm. Instead, there is a rivet that prevents further compression.
The blade can be replaced in case of wear and tear.
If you want to have the arms a little longer to increase the force effect, you can extend the arms via the telescopic mechanism. Up to 6 different levels are possible with these loppers. All you have to do is press the indicated round button and then pull the respective arm. You can adjust the length of the arms independently. The arms then snap into place.
Application and cut
Hazelnut wood is easy to cut. The thin branches are hardly noticeable and the thicker branches require hardly any effort to be cut. The ribbed lower blade holds the branch firmly and you don't slip off. Cutting is therefore pleasant. However, it can happen that the bark is injured a little.
Cherry wood is somewhat harder and therefore not as easy to cut as hazelnut wood. Nevertheless one does not need much strength and effort if one would like to cut cherry wood. Even the thicker branches are comparatively easy to cut.
Basically, these loppers cut very easily and you don't need too much strength, but the weight is quite high. So you have to think about the height at which you use the loppers.
