Geared & levered for ease of use - No single pivot lopper compares, Fiskars or other brand

PowerGear Loppers feature incremental (non-circular) gear mechanisms that optimize force distribution in order to boost cutting power when it is needed the most.

  • I have owned a pair of Powergear bypass loppers for a few years now and love them as much today as the day I first tried them. i have only had to sharpen them once and if you can squeeze the branch into the jaw they WILL cut it off. I have broken more than 1 pair of competitors loppers but Fiskars are still going strong. Thank You for making such a great product......Mike (USA)
  • My 27" PowerGear 2 bypass lopper helped me cut down a nasty buckthorn bush in no time. Its power and ease of use is unsurpassed. The long handles were an advantage as I tried to stay away from the thorns. The lopper cut through the branches like butter. I will gladly take office as president of this lopper's fan club!.....Christina N (USA)

Warranty: 25 year Fiskars warranty against manufacturing defect.

PLEASE NOTE: In the following old video, Fiskar's long retired chief product designer, Olavi Linden explains why the Fiskars PowerGear system is far superior to any single pivot type, Fiskars or other brands. When you try it you soon see why! It is the same in the latest models. We only recommend the European manufactured range for long-term reliability and spare parts
