Fiskars Bypass LopperI will admit it, when I first saw Fiskars pruning tools at the local home improvement black hole/warehouse, I was skeptical. Fiskars conjured up dainty, orange sewing scissors. Not exactly the image of hedge and tree-terrifying pruning machismo I hoped to find. But the more I looked at them, the more I liked. Light, yet crafted with strong materials. Best of all, they were black. Sold! This pruner, aka the PowerGear Bypass Lopper, takes no prisoners. I have yet to find a tree or hedge limb that is not effortlessly lopped off by this masterpiece garden tool. It comes in a variety of sizes and versions, ranging in price from about $20-$70. I like the gear-assisted unit pictured.

I also found them for sale quite reasonably at Best Buds Garden Supply Company

About Marc Lyman

Marc grew up under a brave single mom who "encouraged" home improvement on the family home. Early toddler gifts included a tool set, and even a cordless Bosch drill when cordless drills first came out. In grade school (give or take a few years), Marc's mom said, "We need to cut down some trees. . . . here's a chainsaw." A father figure also involved Marc in many home improvement projects, including a summer of home remodeling in Palo Alto, CA. Toss in some Obsessive Compulsive personality traits researching everything home improvement related. The end result: a genetically pre-disposed, socially sculpted home improvement machine!
