Just my opinion - not here to be provocative (look at my lovely smile!)

Loppers should be banned along with those stupid pole saws (powered and 
otherwise) as devices for making low-quality pruning cuts!

Get off the ground!

Andrew

Hi Tahir, sorry for delay in response, we have various pairs of 
loppers here from cheap to expensive, I personally don't like any as I 
believe that with a pair of secatuers and the right pruning saw, you 
will make better pruning cuts, what I teach the students is to use 
loppers to reduce the bulk or volume of the part or plant and use a 
saw for the fininshing cuts

That's what I should be aiming to do, it's just a height issue, things like 
apricots are just insane they can grow 1 mtr a year to keep them to a 
"manageable from the ground size" is impossible without loppers. I need a 
small mobile platform.
