Darlac Heavy Duty Telescopic Ratchet Lopper
With an extra large cut capacity of up to 60mm this is the recommended lopper for larger pruning tasks. It is important however to use the ratchet mechanism to get the full benefit from this tool. Ratchet action reduces cutting effort by up to 30%. P.T.F.E. coated blade and nonslip cushioned grip. Oval alloy handles with a push button lock. Handles extend from 740mm to 1080mm. Cut capacity ultimately depends on wood density, always work accordingly.
Blade dimension: 13cm, Cut capacity: 60mm, Measurement: Height 75cm, Width 24cm, Depth 3cm, Weight: 1784g.
Maintenance: Clean, sharpen, oil.

Bypass: designed for cutting of live/green wood. A curved cutting platform holds the branch. The action of the blade is a slicing motion in that it goes down to the side of the cutting platform.
Anvil: designed for cutting of old/hard wood. A flat cutting platform at right angles supports the branch. The action of the blade is a chopping motion in that it comes down on to and meets the cutting platform.
Compound Action: The tool mechanism multiplies effort through a gearing or pivot system. Good for mobility issues.
Ratchet: Consists of a bar with a set of angled teeth in which a tooth engages, allowing blade motion in one direction only with a series of movements used rather than a single cut. Good for mobility issues.
