Bypass lopper for the pruning and training of vines. Small cutting head for easy access to hidden branches.
The bypass lopper is designed for cutting live wood. The cutting blade of this lopper slides past a counterblade in a scissor action, hence the name "bypass". The pivot bolt of the Bahco lopper is offset from the natural centre-line of the tool. This unique design feature creates a slicing motion during cutting, which greatly assists the pruning of live wood and spreads wear over a larger area of the blade for increased life.
The hook shape of the Bahco lopper counterblade enables a large cutting diameter and holds the branch steady during cutting. The sap groove is a recess, which reduces the area of contact between blade and counterblade, resulting in less friction and sticking.
- Two metal handle lengths to choose from: 20" and 24" ( 50 cm and 60 cm ).
- Both have a cutting thickness of 1 1/4" ( 3 cm ).
- Soft rubber buffers between handles prevents fatigue.
