Product Description

The Fiskars telescopic universal anvil cutter is extendable up to 3.4m and has an adjustable cutting angle, which allows easy cutting of branches which are awkward to reach. The blade is highly durable and stays sharp due to its CrMov (Chromium, Molybdenum and Vanadium) steel construction, and the lopper's aluminium shaft makes it lightweight and easy to use. Suitable for cutting dry, hard dead wood.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This is a big piece of equipment - 7ft 8in long in its collapsed state and almost 13ft fully extended. It's pretty much a big pole with heavy duty secateurs on the top.

It is a little unwieldy, just because of its length, and I found I had to be careful manoeuvring round the garden - especially near the greenhouse. The packaging suggests a maximum cut diameter of 32mm. I found it to be very sharp and it slid easily through anything up to 20mm. The thickest branch I've tackled is 29mm and that took a little more effort to cut. The problem was not with the sharpness of the blade but with the mechanics of device. You cut by sliding the orange 'handle' down the pole. But there's no leverage. I found that with thicker branches, in order to obtain the necessary purchase, I had to support the base of the pole against my stomach. This gave sufficient purchase but if there had been a lot of thick branches some padding would have been needed to make it comfortable. I found the pole difficult to grip wearing gardening gloves - my hands just kept sliding. Purchase was better with bare hands.

In order to achieve a few feet extra operating height there is an alternative method for working the cutting blade. That is to slip off the orange ball at the bottom of the pole and pull that away from the pole. The woven tape that runs the length of the pole, and is attached to the cutter to operate it, is fastened to this ball. There is a big problem with this method of cutting - you have to support the weight of the pole with one hand while you pull the ball away with the other. I found this difficult to do just because of the weight of the pole.

I also noticed, with just a few minutes use that the tape became a little slack and needed tightening up.

The Fiskar's TUC was offered by Longacres and arrived in just 2 days.
Length can be adjusted between 2.4 m and 3.9 m, allowing an average person to prune 5.4 m above standing level.
There are no instructions except some pictures on the packing, but it's easy to work out how to use it.
At under 2 kg most people should be able to wield it with 2 hands(you need 2 hands to operate it anyway).
There are actually 2 ways to operate it, depending on how high up you are holding it.
Well designed, the mechanism provides a high mechanical advantage so that cutting branches 30 mm diameter is not difficult. The blades appear to be high quality alloy steel and PTFE coated to improve performance and durability.
It has no external pulleys or dangling ropes, so it can penetrate through lower foliage to cut upper branches of trees without getting caught on the lower twigs, etc. The cutting head can also be adjusted to cut at an angle if a direct approach is not possible.
For maintenance, I would suggest some oil or grease on the steel chain to lubricate and protect it, especially if storing in a damp garage or garden shed. The nylon band may also need replacement after many years service.
It is more expensive than the cheap, cord operated cutters: but it totally outperforms them enabling safer, faster, better pruning, and if used properly I think it should be the last pruner you ever need to buy.

I had a cheapo lopper lying around in my shed for many years and had barely used it. Many models of that ilk are made of steel, have a rope hanging down from the business end and you have to pull on it to contract the jaws. The design flaw here, is that you can therefore only hold the handle with one hand, while pulling the cord with the other. The upshot is that the handle is moving about continuously, making it hard to grab the branch, you can't pull with much force and the action of pulling the cord moves the whole contraption to one side or another.

I finally had occasion to use it in anger when a neighbour's tree overhung my garden and grew so big it blocked my satellite dish. This is where I first ran into issues. Firstly, like many cheap loppers, they don't extend that much so you can't lop anything but the lowest branches. Secondly, and quite crucially, after an hour I pulled so hard on the rope that the whole mechanism snapped off the top and it became bin fodder.

What to do? I still had 2/3 of the work to do and it was all very high up. I did my research and settled on this monster. It is, without a shadow of a doubt, the best bit of kit you're going to get short of buying a cherry picker to lift you up the tree. I'm six feet tall and with this fully extended I could cut branches 20 feet up.

The main body is made of carbon fibre, so it's immensely strong, while remaining very light at the same time. The cutting blades are extremely sharp and seemed to cut through anything that would fit in the jaws. Design-wise, it's also different to the cheaper models in that it has a tilting head to get the perfect angle on the target branches and the jaws are closed by pulling on a collar on the shaft.

This tool is pretty expensive for a telescopic lopper, but the quality is there. It's made of aluminium, so is relatively light, and has a longer reach than most. There is no external cord and untidy pulley arrangement, operation being by an enclosed tape and chain, operated by a sliding handle. It works beautifully, and is worth every penny.
It's always worth buying quality with tools and this is no exception.
