Powerful Geared Lopper
Trimming down the garden, pruning trees and cutting down weed trees at the cabin will give you and your loppers a workout. The new PowerGear2 from Fiskars has a gear system in the hinge that takes a lot of the effort out of cutting. According to Fiskars, the loppers are three times more powerful than ordinary loppers. That means working faster, because you can use them for hardwood branches that formerly required a saw.
The handles do have to be opened wider than on regular old loppers (because of the gears), which makes them a little more difficult to get into tight spaces, but for someone with limited arm strength, these Fiskars loppers are a lifesaver.
