Details: The first time you try Fiskars PowerGear2 Lopper, you'll be amazed — but it's not magic, it's gears. Fiskars patented-pending technology multiplies your leverage to give you up to 3X more power on every cut. This means you can power through thick branches that you wouldn't be able to cut with traditional loppers. Fiskars updated design includes modified gears and an innovative cam mechanism to optimize your cutting power in the middle of the cut where the branch is thickest and you need it most. The result is that every cut is even easier than Fiskars original PowerGear cutting tools.
