Lyco offers a wide choice of top-branded loppers, which are useful for purposes like cutting tree branches or plant stems. They come in various forms:
- Bypass loppers are very common, and use a scissor-like action with a blade that bypasses a jaw, or hook. They offer a clean cut, which many prefer over the crushing action of anvil loppers.
- Anvil loppers are recommended for cutting dead branches or dry wood, as their crushing action can have a damaging effect on soft plant tissue. Although they are less precise than bypass loppers, anvil loppers typically provide more force.
- Bypass ratchet loppers will cut larger diameter branches than regular mechanical loppers, with little effort required of the operator.
