# 2 Fiskars 9625 18-Inch PowerGear Bypass Lopper
I am big fan of Fiskars tools and my older version of these pruners continues to work amazingly well. A few years ago, I busted the blades while trying to cut a branch that was too large. At the time, and I think still to this day, Fiskars has a replacement guarantee for such failures. I took mine back to the store and they were replaced with a new pair. Amazing customer service.
Since then, these loppers have served me for many seasons. They are almost the perfect size for my garden. I have a larger set of loppers for big work, but 90% of what I need can be done — and done well — with these.
